Census count finds decreasing white population in 15 states
The Washington Post ^ | Thursday, September 29, 2011 | Carol Morello

Posted on 09/29/2011 7:50:38 PM PDT by MinorityRepublican

Non-Hispanic whites are a dwindling share of the U.S. population, with their numbers dropping in the Northeast and Midwest and growing only modestly in the South and West, the Census Bureau said Thursday.

Whites declined in 15 states, almost all in the industrial and farming states from Massachusetts to Pennsylvania, and from Kansas to Ohio. They also declined in California and three Southern states, including Maryland.

A Census Bureau analysis of the 2010 count showed that the number of non-Hispanic whites rose over the decade from 194.5 million to 197 million, but the 1.2 percent growth rate fell far short of the national increase of 9.7 percent. Non-Hispanic whites are now 64 percent of the population, down from 69 percent a decade ago.

The census also reported that the black population grew by 12 percent. African Americans now make up almost 13 percent of the population, a small increase over the decade. More than half, 57 percent, live in the South, up from 55 percent a decade ago. And six out of 10 blacks live in 10 states, including Virginia and Maryland.

The census analysis of the nation’s white and black population underscores the transformative nature of growth in the 21st century. The number of Hispanics and Asians is soaring, the number of blacks is growing slowly and whites are almost at a standstill.

I didn’t read the whole thing. Did their numbers dwindle as a fraction of the population, or in absolute numbers ?

Section 8 is the Liberal version of block-busting.

They use it to move the termites into the areas where people moved to escape the termites, forcing them to move again.

I got you beat. I’m in Hollywood, “very’ close by to the Hollywood Walk of Fame and nearby is Hollywood High School where most stars of the 50’s graduated.

It is now 100% hispanic/mexican. Never saw 1 white kid there for the past 5 years.

I am seeing a sudden surge in ghetto population in previously middle class Phoenix neighborhoods. They are coming from as far away as Detroit and moving into foreclosed homes. At first I couldn’t explain it. Then I realized people from inner city neighborhoods from the east wouldn’t move cross country, and especially to a state like Arizona.. unless there were some forces/strong incentives behind it.

I made a prediction a while ago that we may actually see more white immigrants over the next couple decades, esp. from S. Europe. Maybe some from places like Russia and Ukraine as well.

Overall non-hispanic white population increased by 1.2% in 10 years. Overall population growth was 9.7%. Relative declines in non-hispanic whites as a percentage of the total population are national and in every state. 15 states also witnessed absolute declines in numbers of non-hispanic whites.

When we take the grandchildren to the playground at a nearby park, they're the only white children there. All of the others are Mexicans and blacks. And this is in a nice neighborhood in suburban Dallas, Texas. Likewise at the grocery store, the white people are are, like me, elderly. The younger adults are all Mexican or black.

I realize that Pat Buchanan is ostracized by many here, but he was quite prophetic in The Death of the West. In particular Chapter 9 of his book ("Intimidated Majority") describes the current situation aptly.

Hispanic is not a race. You can be a white Hispanic or a black Hispanic and they declare which race on their census form. Hispanic is an ethnicity.

YES THERE ARE. My ex-landlord here in Hollywood can pass for Brad Pitt. I thought the guy was Irish and he told me his wife (who is also the caretaker) of the apt bldg, who is a white brunette, can no mistakenly, pass off as white.

They are both from Chihuahua, mexico. They have a 5-year old daughter who hands down, passes off as blond kid, complete with blond hair and bluish eyes. Even I could place bets on people to take the bet that the couple was mexican, and I could clean up with that bet. Apparently, there are 2 types of mexicans: the MESTIZOS (white) and the Aztecas’ (the everyday Home Depot stalker type).

What they never tell you in these articles is the amount of intermarriage that is increasing in a more and more colorblind society.

If a “white” and a “Hispanic” marry, the children are.. "Hispanic" because of all the advantages “minority” status gives them.

If a “white and a “black” marry, the children are ... “black” because of all the advantages “minority” status gives them.

So the numbers of “white” kids constantly goes down through the normal process of assimilation, by definition.

What is hysterical, is the racist nature of the leftist, who think that certain groups will always vote for them because they are defined as a member of that group.

So? Who cares about the racial makeup of our country?

The Democrat hierarchy certainly cares and welcomes a diminished white population. Unless there's an unprecedented sea change, Hispanics and blacks will follow historic patterns, joining the ranks of that political party.

As FReeper nathanbedford (one of the more erudite posters here in my estimation) has succinctly phrased it, "All politics is racial".

It all began going downhill for whites when 'rats won the all-cultures-are-equal debate and we established immigration quotas favoring non-European immigrants over Europeans.

I don't think the situation is reversible now since Europeans are no longer the people they were. So allowing more "Europeans" in is not going to solve our problem.

There is hope for making this country great again, but I dare not speak its name.

If we fail to act, in a hundred years, maybe a lot less, we're Liberia. Or Bolivia. Pick your favorite hellhole. That's what we'll be, and the greatest hope for mankind will be no more.

Actually, a lot of Irish ended up settling in Mexico. If you travel there (tho I wouldn’t NOW), you’ll find Flynns, Quinns, Murphys, etc. Also, the Spaniards are white, many in Cuba, too. They can, if they want, claim ‘hispanic’ ethnicity on the census/school applications, if they see it benefits them.

They also declined in California and three Southern states, including Maryland.

You might think the Post fact-checkers could figure out that Maryland isn't in the South. But you'd be wrong.

I met a woman last week who told me she was from Ecuador...she could easily pass for someone born in Spain or Italy.

Some Latin American countries had a lot of immigration post-independence, from Italy, Germany, Spain, the Balkans. If someone of German heritage born in Argentina comes to the US are they counted as Hispanic? Or someone of Croatian descent from Punta Arenas, Chile?

The man who wrote the Maryland state song thought that Maryland was a Southern state. Roger Taney was from Maryland--he was considered a Southerner. The deal that resulted in the nation's capital being located between Maryland and Virginia presupposed that Maryland was part of the South.

Remember JFK's description of Washington--a city of Southern efficiency and Northern charm.

All three of those groups would go to Australia or the UK before they came to the US. Besides the Greeks and Italians won’t leave their generous welfare states for the relatively stingy bennies of the USA. Even insolvency won’t keep Greeks off the dole.

“Hispanic is not a race. You can be a white Hispanic or a black Hispanic and they declare which race on their census form. Hispanic is an ethnicity. “

What do the words “La Raza” translate to?

What is their motto? I’ll refresh your memory:
“For those of the Race, everything. For those not of the Race, nothing.”

“Hispanic” is _more than_ ethnicity. Like those who cannot see the forest from the trees, we are seeing human evolution at work right before our eyes. For roughly the last 500 years, we have been seeing the emergence of a new “sub-racial” category: Hispanics. They didn’t exist before the discovery of The New World. But they certainly exist now.

And (again, “La Raza”) they certainly and obviously have their own identity and consciousness.

Just sayin’...

“So? Who cares about the racial makeup of our country?”

If you do not, you are in for a rude awakening.

A very interesting quote I saw right here on FR, NOT written by me:
“Ultimately a Conservative must either be a racial nationalist or cease being a conservative.
The only logical reason for conservatism is to preserve a genetic entity, a race, or a nation, intact - all other reasons given are mere circumlocutions.”

Just circumlocuting... :)

"La Raza" is purely a MEXICAN term, and refers to the mixed race of Indian and European that allegedly produces the best of both. It was coined by Jose Vasconcelos as "La Raza Cosmica" after the Mexican war.

Americans are silly to consider "Hispanics" a race (the only people on earth who do so), yet include non European ethnicities like Arabs, Persians, Jews, and Armenians as white.

Counting them as white violates the liberal agenda. I too have known blond and blue eyed Hispanics.

Bigotry is very strong in Mexico between the light skinned and dark skinned (so much so that the light skinned want to expel the dark skinned to the US), but it doesn't exist according to the liberal media. Only white Republicans can be bigots.
