Skip to comments.Demographic Tipping Point: Whites Now Less than Half of US Births

Bill Clinton once said that he looked forward to the day when whites were a minority in America. While he won't live to see such a time, a demographic milestone that should send a tingle up Slick Willie's leg was just reached. Writes The New York Times:
After years of speculation, estimates and projections, the Census Bureau has made it official: White births are no longer a majority in the United States.
Non-Hispanic whites accounted for 49.6 percent of all births in the 12-month period that ended last July, according to Census Bureau data made public on Thursday, while minorities - including Hispanics, blacks, Asians and those of mixed race - reached 50.4 percent, representing a majority for the first time in the country's history.
Obviously, a big reason for this demographic shift is migration -- and mainly the legal variety. As a result of Ted Kennedy's Immigration Reform Act of 1965, the level of yearly immigration increased from approximately 250,000 prior to '65 to about 1,000,000 afterwards. And its nature has changed also: 85 percent of our new arrivals hail from the third world and Asia. This radical departure from America's traditional immigration patterns has created a demographic transformation possibly unprecedented in world history -- except for cases of actual invasion.

Couple that with an unceasing influx of both legal and illegal immigrants (BTW, neither of which this country actually needs), and you have the gist of this article's headline.
Nah .... Just invest in prison industries.
Who knew that white, Western civilizations would develop a culture that promotes its own extinction? People are waiting later or deciding not to have children. The survival imperative appears to have been bred out of our western societies. Population growth among whites world-wide is almost as low as that of the Japanese.
Guess we dont need affirmative action anymore.
Do you mean Idiocracy? I haven’t seen that yet, but friends have recommended it.
When you have competition this STIFF know wonder we are losing.
33-year-old Desmond Hatchett from Knoxville, Tenn., has 30 children with 11 women.
Scuze me but all those minority laws are now gonna help white folks, right?
They forgot to add the “white Hispanics”.
We are back on top! Hooray!!
Unfortunately, what you say is true, end times which have been caused by policies put into place largely since the mid-’60’s, arguably since FDR with good reason. If this country is to be saved by Conservatives, violent revolution is necessary and now; but, there’s no one to handle the job—unless Allen West is the seed, I believe he understands the situation, or, at least, implies he does.
Well, as long as they are legal! /s
Now that my children are minorities, where do they sign up for race based preferences in college admissions and hiring?
Yes, you are right. Idiocracy.......
Yes.....please excuse the brain fart.
My children are not "white".
They are moreno.
They have been raised to understand and value the freedoms we hold dear. They have learned of the evils of socialism and the bounty that capitalism can bring a free, God fearing society. They may not care for baseball nor ever consider buying a Chevy, but they have been raised to love this country.
White doesn't translate into "patriot". Remember that whites vote democrat in larger numbers than any minority. I can't think of anything more anti-American.
The thought that only whites are conservative is frightening. I would hate to think my children would be excluded from that for their color.
It's not a line of thinking I would encourage.
We've had hot weather for a few weeks now. The kids have begun to turn bronze brown and are getting darker even with protection and only short periods of exposure. White people pay a fortune to look like that. Societies often go through demographic and cultural evolution. It's up to us to mentor a positive change for our countries future.
The whole thing is a great read, but section III is most relevant to this thread.
And when those kids are grown to voting age, do you think they will have any interest in paying for the SS and Medicare of a bunch of elderly crackers?
These are not “Citizen” births; these include Foreign babies deposited on U.S. Soil, erroneously ruled to be “Automatic Citizens”, and ALL Illegal babies born on U.S. soil to Illegal squatters.
