Posted on 05/17/2012 5:53:01 AM PDT by Dysart
For the first time in U.S. history, whites of European ancestry account for less than half of newborn children, marking a demographic tipping point that is already changing the nation's politics, economy and workforce.
Among the roughly four million children born in the U.S. between July 2010 and July 2011, 50.4% belonged to a racial or ethnic group that in previous generations would have classified them as minorities, up from 48.6% in the same period two years earlier, the Census Bureau said Thursday. That was the first 12-month stretch in which non-Hispanic white children accounted for less than half the country's births.

the legend is all the same red.............what’s up with that
Anyone who really believes the government telling us that there are only 12 million illegals in this country needs to be riding in the short yellow bus.
More whites are required to work so that those on welfare can continue to procreate and pop out kids. White men such as myself are in the dubious position of having to work, pay taxes, pay my mortgage and bills, and then find time to have children. The “minorities” seem content procreating with little regard for the welfare of the child, so realistically, this report isn’t saying anything more than minorities are procreating at a faster rate than whites.
Minorities also tend to be incarcerated more and involved in more murders than whites, so the scales likely balance out over the span of decades.
I wondered also. Perhaps the legend didn’t want to appear raciss...
Clearly. Part of it is accounted for simply by the fact that whites *are* reproducing at a slower rt than other groups, and slower than in the past. IMO a five per cent share decline in white births within six yrs is dramatic. We're heading into JC Penney stock territory. I'll leave it to the sociologists to account for the drop-off, but it the answer is surely complex and to some extent predictable, I know that much.
In 50 years (or maybe less) the US will have become a Third World nation...all thanks to the immigration policies of the Rat Party,led by the likes of Ted Kennedy.
I’d like to see what percentage of GDP is created by white America? Hope these new ‘Americans’ aren’t too good to make refrigerators and drill for oil.
Gubmin’ jobs don’t count.
I wonder how many 1/32 American Indian's that percentage includes.... ;)
Last one out turn off the lights.
Lamestream media love to do this kind of alarmism, but it’s very misleading. To paraphrase Carville, “It’s the culture, stupid.”
Large proportion of Asians and Hispanics are assimilated to the mainstream American culture. Thus, they are not “minorities” in any meaningful way.
You could have done the same graphics years ago, including Italians and Greeks as “minorities,” and gotten the same kind of result.
You say that jokingly, but you are exactly right. Probably, the proportion is significant, and therefore, the data are meaningless.
The State has bought the new majority with the old majority's money.
Reform the social spending policies that reward poor, illiterate and largely illegal and watch the demographics quickly re-adjust.
UGH to much.... :>)
I blame the feminist movement, personally. More women working into their 30s and pushing their biological clocks further and further. When they do have babies, they have one, maybe two. Three-plus-child households are rare among whites.
Then there’s the media pushing this fake image of beauty, women become self-conscious and don’t want to have babies in fear of going all “fun house mirror.”
Meanwhile, those who do have babies young find out how difficult it is to raise a child with a lower income and don’t want to have another until they are “established.”
It’s become impossible to raise a child in a single-income household and still hold on to this ideal that life is all sunshine and butterflies. Reality is a cruel mistress, but minorities don’t care about that; many are content with sucking on the public teat.
“For the first time in U.S. history, whites of European ancestry...”
This is a completely bogus report!
What are Hispanics, but an artificially concocted ‘minority’ ethnic group that consist in large part of white Europeans of Spanish and sometimes Portuguese ancestry. If these “white Hispanics”, e.g. the Cameron Diazs or Ken Salazars, are included, then what happens to the numbers?
Additionally, at what point do mixed-race individuals become “white”? My infant son is 3/4 white, 1/4 Korean. Was he a white birth or a minority birth?
What happens to minority births when the middle class is unable to pay for any further welfare subsidies, and minority moms are informed that any kids they produce will have to be fed with what the moms earn themselves.
Don't be fooled. Plenty of Republicans/GOP wanted that cheap labor..and still do.
. Yes, but prosperity brings it on also. These married couples choose not to have more than 1-3 kids.
Does that mean WE get to riot now?...........
Not if they reject leftist ideology. That's determined by culture values, not racial identity, and those can be shaped. Rats invite them to the plantation, and work hard to keep them in place via the usual tactics such as manipulation through propaganda, judicial activism, entitlements, and class warfare plays mostly.
It doesn't have to be the way. This is our biggest cultural battle, to slay the forces of socialism by leading through example. But, if we fail in that, yeah, we're toast. I think that's why this election is so important. What does Obama have planned in four years where he doesn't have to misdirect/lie/subvert our constitutional values with another election looming? He'll appt another SC Justice, and then watch out.
It’s a choice, because we want to provide our children with the best opportunity to advance in the world. We want our children to be our betters. We have 1-3 children, because that’s all that we can afford to support and maintain an adequate lifestyle.
Which makes me think: do these environmental whackos who think the world is overpopulated ever consider who is doing the actual overpopulation? They preach to whites as if to guilt us, but if they ever stopped to think and maybe review a report like this one, perhaps their heads would explode from the Liberal groupthink non sequitors.
If you are a ‘Hispanic’ who doesn’t speak Spanish and looks vaguely white, what are you?
White women are too busy working to have children. Plus, it’s a lot of work to have and raise children and a sacrifice on one’s personal time. It’s so much easier going to Starbucks and kibbitzing with friends while drinking lattes, going shoppping, watching movies, talking on the cellphone, and blaming your problems on everyone else.
Let the third worlders do the heavy lifting!
Feminists are a major cause. Abortion. Government incentives to breed for poor. Open borders and anchor babies.
Obama being elected signaled to rest of world U. S. was headed to Third World status. Obama policies accelerated it.
It'll be sooner than that, if the trajectory of the minority births is correct. I predict 2030.
Excellent points. I also have to wonder how many more people are checking the “mixed race” box on various government forms since checking the “white” box has become the equivalent of wearing a “kick me” sign.
They're quite happy to do just that, knowing the payoff they'll reap within 20-25 years.
Negative; those preferences were established in response to, and to remedy, historical "white privilege" and "oppression." And whites, the left-thinking goes, cannot be on the business end of it. So, no no special consideration for whitey regardless of the demographic breakdown. The rats set up the rules of this game. We're just pawns.
This is good news for CA. In the near future, there won’t be enough taxpayers to support all the gov’t workers needed to enforce all CA’s silly laws and regulations.
“What are Hispanics, but an artificially concocted minority ethnic group that consist in large part of white Europeans of Spanish and sometimes Portuguese ancestry.”
Ummm...for the most part, new Hispanics are Mexican. Poor Mexicans. With the values of poor people in Mexico who are suddenly being given money by their friends in the government.
Food stamps. Medicaid. Housing assistance. And if you want more money, have more babies...
That’s entirely correct. Whites need to look within first. Again, much of this is predicted by historical trends in an older, established population.
Even if it’s an outright lie, Elizabeth Warren has been checking the box that suits her best for 3 decades now.
Maybe we can make a Herschel Walker-type trade.
Let’s swap California, and four states to be named later, to Canada for Alberta.
There certainly are a lot of gray areas as you and others have pointed out. It’s the Rats who must label and appropriate (voting) blocks of peoples. It’s part of the divide and conquer strategery. That’s the thing.
Can we obtain B.C. in exchange for some fiat money? (The current inhabitants will shirley flee to redder pastures in such a trade) Then Deal!
I guess we are all injuns now ;^)
People that live in “whitelandia” include Europeans, middle easterners, Asians, Indians- both Asian and American and even some middle class blacks. All intermingle and marry - especially Asians and Europeans. So “white culture” may darken but will grow in America in numbers.
Maybe we can expand the deal to include Saskatchewan.
Smashing idea- Saskatchewan is resource-rich. I have to tell you Canada would be a fool to make this deal but, like Mike Flynn, one is born every minute.

Sorry. Couldn't resist the sarcasm.
Personally I blame the nags and their assault on motherhood. White women are supposed to have a career not raise children.
