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...

The U.S. Finished as a Country by 2050
Just the majority of those who work and pay taxes.
Lots of wonderful black and brown countries in the world.. it’s why so many black and brown people came here... now we can be just like the countries they escaped from...
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
IMHO, this puts it in perspective.
We can start a new country underground in Antarctica.
You’re being quite optimistic. I think we are done previous to that.
Americans will no longer be a majority in America by... oh forget it.
“Over the hills and through the woods to Grandmother’s house we ... er ... who burned down Grandmother’s house?”
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.
Census: Whites no longer a majority in U.S. by 2043
Should Jesus tarry and Im still here I doubt if Ill be worrying about that at age 95...
How do the number of casualties in the coming Civil War figure into these population calculations?
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).
We can call it WHITE OUT.
Massachusetts? Hardly. Only within the Rt. 128 beltway. Everywhere else, browner and browner. And no English skills.
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.
I guess compared to CA, just about every state seems lily white.
