Census: Whites no longer a majority in U.S. by 2043
CBS News ^ | 12-12-12 | AP

Posted on 12/12/2012 10:18:34 AM PST by Brandonmark

White people will no longer make up a majority of Americans by 2043, according to new census projections, part of a historic shift that is already reshaping the nation's schools, workforce and electorate.

The official projection, released Wednesday by the Census Bureau, now places the tipping point for the white majority a year later than previous estimates, which were made before the impact of the recent economic downturn was fully known.

America continues to grow and become more diverse due to higher birth rates among minorities, particularly for Hispanics who entered the U.S. at the height of the immigration boom in the 1990s and early 2000s. Since the mid-2000 housing bust, however, the arrival of millions of new immigrants from Mexico and other nations has slowed, pushing minority growth below its once-torrid pace.

The country's changing demographic mosaic has stark political implications, shown clearly in last month's election that gave President Barack Obama a second term — in no small part due to his support from 78 percent of non-white voters.

The non-Hispanic white population, now at 197.8 million, is projected to peak at 200 million in 2024, before entering a steady decline in absolute numbers as the massive baby boomer generation enters its golden years.

"The fast-growing demographic today is now the children of immigrants," said Marcelo Suarez-Orozco, a global expert on immigration and dean of UCLA's Graduate School of Education & Information Studies, describing the rate of minority growth in the U.S. as dipping from "overdrive" to "drive." Even with slowing immigration, Suarez-Orozco says, the "die has been cast" for strong minority growth from births.

As recently as 1960, whites made up 85 percent of the U.S., but that share dropped after a 1965 overhaul to U.S. immigration laws opened doors to waves of new immigrants from Mexico...

Whites no longer a majority in U.S. by 2043

Just the majority of those who work and pay taxes.

I wish I knew the answer and how to implement it. I know in the 1970’s and 1980’s, Europe tried to boost the native birthrate by offering “Kindergeld” (”child money” in the then West Germany) but that backfired. Great, I’ll be pushing 80 at that time. B-P

The point when minority children become the majority is expected to arrive much sooner — 2019. Last year, racial and ethnic minorities became a majority among babies ages 1 and younger for the first time in U.S. history.

IMHO, this puts it in perspective.

We’ve had a while to get used to this in CA.

Unfortunately our pathetic state is usually a harbinger for the future. Look at CA and you will see the future of the nation unfortunately.....will lead to bankruptcy, government dependence, and union control of everything.

Not to say this about white versus nonwhite. Some of the most blue states in the nation including IA, WA, OR, VT, RI, MA, NH, ME, MN, WI, CT are lily white.

Sad thing is that by 2050, the final bastion of majority Caucasian and Western Values will be....Russia. America will have been taken over by the black/hispanic majority and most of Europe will be under the rule of Muslims and Black Africans.

Russia is the only country the recognizes they dangers of multiculturism and is actively "discouraging" immigrants from non-christian's and non-whites, while at the same time encouraging higher birth rates amoung whites. So you might encourage your Children and Grandchildren to work on they're Cyrilic alphabet, because they might need to move in a hurry when the anti-white aparteid starts here (were seeing the first flickers of it already).

Almost no whites play the knockout game or flash rob. If you think blacks and whites are the same...you’re wrong. Blacks are excessively violent and have no impulse control.

Perhaps we can find some WWII era Luftwaffe "Haunebu" flying saucers the Nazis hid there and take back America. B-) Seriously, the best solution is if the U.S. collapses and falls apart, we establish our own homeland somewhere and control immigration with an iron hand.

If you bother to watch advertising (commercials) on TV ... the U.S. is already there ... Blacks, Hispanics, Asians dominate. Particularly Blacks, kind of like watching the NFL or NBA. The only White male I see these days is Peyton Manning in the Buick commercial.

According to wikipedia.com, MA’s non-hispanic white population is 76.4%-——making it VASTLY more white than CA.

Russia has its own demographic time bomb. The birth rate in Russia has been so low for so long that, despite a small, very recent uptick, by 2050 it will most likely have 30 million fewer people than it does now.

Great we can all sit on our butts and let all the current minorities work only to have their money stolen to support us.

Lets see how great a society they build and see how it compares to the white majority. After all they did so well in their countries of origin right?

***White people will no longer make up a majority of Americans by 2043,***

I remember seeing an old WWI cartoon showing Uncle Sam and John Bull shaking hands in the war against the Kaiser.

The caption was...”WE Anglo-Saxon nations have to stick together!”

But then, that was then.

I know. And if you look at blacks in most of these commercials, they are ALWAYS in nice middle class suburban neighborhoods, (like something out of the Brady Bunch) and have traditional nuclear families, even though the reality of the situation is precisely the polar opposite portrayed in these commercials. Another thing....have you ever noticed in the commercials to protect homeowners againsts burglars and intruders, the the criminals breaking into homes are ALWAYS portrayed as non-hispanic WHITES! ALWAYS! Without exception.

I’d bet money that they don’t have a clue when or what the makeup of the US will be in 2043. Also, I don’t plan to give up teaching and preaching what is right about our country. Too much giving up on here IMO. It’s very unAmerican! I grew up in Oklahoma which has always had a large Indian population. It’s one of the reddest states in the union. No county voted for Obama in 2008 or 2012.

This is only true if you keep Hispanic whites from adopting English and assimilating into the general population.

new country underground in Antarctica...

Failing that, we'll just have to go underground everywhere. Plant seeds of liberty where possible. We'll be known as the Great American Diaspora, in exile from our native land.

Australia & New Zealand shouldn't change much, either. They do have some Asian immigration, but those immigrants believe in western values and assimilate, and the amount of black (2.2%), Hispanic (0.62%), and Arab (1.71%) population is Australia is statistically insignificant and projected to remain so.

Connecticut is not exactly lily white. Hartford is black. New Haven is black. Bridgeport is black. A number of smaller towns and cities have huge Pureto Rican populations. The generous welfare benefits have been a big draw going back 4 or more decades.

I know. One time my mother noticed that too, drives her nuts, and to tell the truth, doesn't sit well with me. It aeems like there is affirmative action working here which is bothersome.
