Number of "majority minority" U.S. cities grows: Brookings
Reuters ^ | Aug 31, 2011 | Lisa Lambert

Posted on 08/31/2011 12:22:34 PM PDT by george76

The ethnic map of U.S. cities has drastically changed in the last decade, which could affect how major metropolitan areas provide social, educational and health services...Non-white people and Hispanics accounted for 98 percent of the population growth in metropolitan areas from 2000 to 2010...

By 2010, minorities made up more than half the population in 22 of the 100 largest metro areas, it said. That compares with 14 areas in 2000 and five in 1990.

"Overall, most of these 'majority minority' metro areas are located in California and Texas, where Hispanics dominate the minority population," .

...

When it comes to Hispanic and Asian populations, those groups tend to cluster in the same places. Nearly half of all Hispanics in the United States live in 10 cities...

Brookings found that one-third of Asians live in three metropolitan areas -- Los Angeles, New York and San Francisco.

They’re no longer “minorities” if they’re the majority, are they?

And when they no longer speak Spanish, what exactly makes them a minority group?

The Federal Government has been strategically placing Somali's over the last ten years ago. There are 90,000 in Columbus, Ohio area which explains why the once conservative state of Ohio is going liberal. They have been placed in Maine, Michigan-which was bad enough. By peoperly placing these groups they can control which way the States will lean in elections. Other groups are being placed or drawn to areas in the same manner.

Yes, it is true California is totally gone and will never come back. The real question being when will the new California leadership attempt to join Mexico or join with Arizona, Nevada and New Mexico in forming a Mexican nation.

What will eventually happen is the US will end up like South africa. The whites will have the money and power while the non-whites will be the workers. I’ve observed it here in L.A., especially the Hollywood industry. 3 weeks ago, I visited one of my company liaison in a special effects studio to talk about our marketing strategy and out of the entire 100 people I passed by, not one was non-white.

I had to hear it from someone “higher up” that they told me once a hispanic gets to a certain position, that’s all whom they hire...this from a liberal bastion. It proves once again that liberal white guilt is an off-shoot of their racist liberal tendency.

we used to be told that blacks can’t be racist because they are not in power.

But still, if you are a poor white in a neighborhood of mostly blacks, and a country with a black president, you’ll still be considered racist if you are against increasing government spending.

Which is it? Based on what you say, looks like to me that whites are doing all the work and paying the taxes. The non-whites are unemployed and living off the fruits of "economic justice".

What will these cities look like in the future once the demogrophics shift enough to insure unstoppable, permanent democrat government? Detroits all around much?

Whites in L.A., just like any ethnicity, band together. And the worst hypocrisy? They are liberals AND fags. They are the ones who are supposed to be all “multi-cultural” but they still vote Obama to appease their white guilt.

Ah well, the tighter the noose, the country will eventually have to duke it out in CW part 2.

(To your point, here was my comment on the gang road rage incident on FR earlier today...)

Attention FReepers.

If you have not been to Los Angeles (or for a long time), areas like Rampart, East LA, North/West Valley, Oxnard and around Dodger Stadium, north of Downtown are nearly 100% Mexican areas where most people there are illegal or anchor babies with illegals attached.

I would estimate that there are 5 million illegal aliens in LA, OC and SD counties, alone.

I have no idea about this gang shooting, it’s sad, but when you see the “working two jobs” and “funeral in Mexico” you can bet with 99% certainty he did not have legal papers

Yep, I was wondering what the relative crime rate was in these “majority minority” cities...

Interestingly, last year was the first time in decades that Washington D.C. was majority white. Boy, were the race pimps pissed.

“The times, they are a-changing....”. Multi-culturalism and the lack of shared vision of “America” makes this development problematic.

I believe you.

After Apartheid collapsed, many white owned businesses took on a politically connectioned black "partners"(politican's brothers or uncles) whose only function was protection from the majority(Marxist)led government. The rest of SA minority majority population remain as poor and destitute, waiting for the day it too explodes into another Zimbabwe.

And the clock is ticking on us as well, waiting only for the day when the system has more freeloaders than taxpayers.

The streets will be filled with the minority majority, whipped into a frenzy like maddened bulls on steroids, by self-serving agitators (imagine Al Sharpton with a Spanish accent)All demanding more from the goverment but billed to the upper class that no longer exists..

Then the Great American Experiment envisioned by our Founding Fathers will end with an explosion. See recent Greek Riots

What comes afterword I shutter to think...

the “one drop rule” wins again.

So none of my grandchildren would be considered “white”.

no the US will not end up like South Africa because in the US, the intermarriage rate is high.

from a pew survey on wikipedia:

The study found that in 2008:[12]

A record 14.6% of all new marriages in the United States in 2008 were between spouses of a different race or ethnicity from one another.

This compares to 8.0% of all current marriages regardless of when they occurred.

This includes marriages between a Hispanic and non-Hispanic (Hispanics are an ethnic group, not a race) as well as marriages between spouses of different races – be they white, black, Asian, American Indian or those who identify as being of multiple races or some other race.

Among all newlyweds in 2008, 9% of whites, 16% of blacks, 26% of Hispanics and 31% of Asians married someone whose race or ethnicity was different from their own.

This is not so much an racial issue as it is an economical one. Illegal Mexicans immigrants pose an danger because of their poverty and numbers. Twenty-two million poverty stricken Irishmen would be as much a threat as they rampage across the cities and countryside in competition for scare resources.

I have often heard (from teenage girls and of former sixties "flower children" promote universal interracial mixing as a means to end racial strife because there will be only one race.

But skin color is only the symptom, not the "disease"

Even among blacks today there is animosity between dark skinned blacks and their lighter toned brethren. These liberal well wishers misunderstand and underestimate mankind's willingness to eliminate those they fear, envy, or perceive as competition.

Until there is a cure for this, man will continue to brutalize his fellow man.
