Skip to comments.Texas demographer: 'It's basically over for Anglos'

Looking at population projections for Texas, demographer Steve Murdock concludes: "It's basically over for Anglos."
Two of every three Texas children are now non-Anglo and the trend line will become even more pronounced in the future, said Murdock, former U.S. Census Bureau director and now director of the Hobby Center for the Study of Texas at Rice University.
Today's Texas population can be divided into two groups, he said. One is an old and aging Anglo and the other is young and minority. Between 2000 and 2040, the state's public school enrollment will see a 15 percent decline in Anglo children while Hispanic children will make up a 213 percent increase, he said.
The state's largest county - Harris - will shed Anglos throughout the coming decades. By 2040, Harris County will have about 516, 000 fewer Anglos than lived in the Houston area in 2000, while the number of Hispanics will increase by 2.5 million during the same period, Murdock said. The projection assumes a net migration rate equal to one-half of 1990-2000.
Most of the state's population growth is natural, Murdock told the House Mexican American Legislative Caucus today. About 22 percent of the growth comes from people moving to Texas from other states.
About 6 percent of the state's population is not documented, he said.
By 2040, only 20 percent of the state's public school enrollment will be Anglo, he said. Last year, non-Hispanic white children made up 33.3 percent of the state's 4.8 million public school enrollment...
The state's future looks bleak assuming the current trend line does not change because education and income levels for Hispanics lag considerably behind Anglos, he said....

It’s never going to be ‘over for Anglos’ until Anglos decide it’s over for themselves.
Looks like the Houston Chronicle is trying to scare stuff up.
This “news” came out a couple years ago. The local McDonald’s got all down jiggly with it and put up the menu in Spanish. I guess they got too many complaints because it was down within days. OTOH, about 4 years ago we made the mistake of going into Whataburger for lunch and got evil stares of “gringos not allowed” by all the illegals that filled the place. I doubt they’re hurting for many business but I’ve never been back.
Even by Harry Truman's time it was common for an American to have half a dozen ethnicities lurking in the ol'woodpile.
Their Anglo-Chokras are struggling to present themselves AND they will! More than one Mexican momma is going to cry herself to sleep seeing that "the blond girl" has her little boy!
The US will be a much smaller country without California, Arizona, New Mexico, and Nevada.
All the more reason for Texas to pass the anchor baby legislation A.S.A.P.!
Sadly the Texas GOP are all RINOs and did nothing to protect the border. Rick PErry, Kay Bailey, Cornyn, Bush et al. Yeah it is the Feds job but Texas should have stepped in.
White flight. And flight of middle class or upwardly hopeful/mobile blacks and hispanics. Such people are fleeing to somewhere. Arizona? Idaho? Colorado? Kansas?
Those who are not able to flee...
Why have children when the government and even entire cities or counties or states are increasingly anti-anglo, anti-home, anti-family?
Anglos kids are persecuted in the schools and anglo families are under the invasive thumb of local and state government. At the slightest invented reason the government "social services" takes away our kids.
The Anglos, along with citizens of “Hispanic” ancestry that do not favor the open borders approach to immigration, have not yet mustered the will to put a stop to the alien invasion. I cannot remember a U. S. President that actually intended to secure our borders, with the possible exception of Reagan, who let himself be snookered by Ted Kennedy into accepting an amnesty in return for nothing.
Didn’t Santa Anna say something like that?
White folks need to breed more, the others, less. Also, more important to me is the culture. How many of the non-anglo are old school, hard core Texas hispanics that have been there since the beginning?
Unfortunately, thanks mostly to indoctrinated public skoolz and Liberal Colleges, the 'Anglo's' voted with political correctness for an un-qualified token black in 2008.....and here we are.
Coupled with the insane "Anchor Baby" rule, Mexicans freely come across the border and drop off a new "American Citizen", then we let the whole extended family come in to join, as "we can't break up a family".
THAT is what "Anglo's" are doing.......
Nope, I'll still be vilified as the evil white male that "deserves" everything he gets.
It was over years ago for Texas...
In fact, you're likely seeing the last White Governor of Texas...Eventually, the illegals will turn the Alamo into a medical clinic for illegal aliens.
No, Texas should have seceded a long time ago.
Anglos who worship at an idol of multi-culturalism tend to have smaller families, and those children they do have tend to dislike their parents intensely, from what I’ve seen. That leaves the other Anglos who haven’t taken on guilt for being who they are, living their lives in their own country, and that group includes members of religions that tend to have large Anglo families, and many of those people tend to home-school or send their children to private schools.
The anchor-baby travesty is being sorted out and might be decided in America’s favor. That’s up to us too. The cost of illegal aliens to this country is greater than the cost of removing every single one of them, and that would change some of the demographic projections in the original article. If I were giving a verdict it would be: bleak but not hopeless. Again, it’s not over for Anglos until Anglos decide it’s over for themselves. Faith sustains, however you want to define faith.
That Blond Girl just might be one of my GrandDaughters.
Blond Hair, Yes.
Blue Eyes, Yes.
Last name of Galvez.
Point well taken.
Many of the young people today are not so hungup on the whole Race thing.
People need to look past all the superficial stuff and concentrate on the person Values.
They see it as the success of their invasion and the ultimate takeover of the hated Anglo's land and power.
But there is no history of Mexico or any other Latin country achieving anything significant, other than setting records for human misery.
Just as the current residents of Detroit are finding out, once the creative and productive class leaves, it's back to subsistence farming.
Intelligent parasites at least don't kill the host. But in upper midwestern cities, and the southwest in general, the dumbest parasites ever seen are doing just that.
Their next generations will be progressively smaller as they simply will not have the welfare, the free medical care, or a robust economy that employs unskilled squat laborers at its fringes.
But they actually won't care being Lords of The Flies. It'll be just like Mexico, and in the end, that's as much as they've ever been able to imagine, so that's all it'll be.
