Skip to comments.Census: Whites no longer a majority in U.S. by 2043
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...

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.
Sounds good to me. I’d rather be stuck underground for life than live in a 3rd world country. I’m originally from the Philly area, so I know how it will be. Demographics is destiny.
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?
I see you’ve read the conspiracy nonsense as me. :)
There’s nowhere left to go that I can think of.
***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.
That’s not something I have to worry about since I probably won’t be alive to see the demise of this formerly great country.
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.
By suicide. The greatest nation in history has already been turned over to invading hordes of locusts. Zimbabwe, here we come. Who will be "the last white farmer" in America?
Fortunately, I will have been dead for a very long time.
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.
“World Peace 1.1.2043.”
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.
Interesting observation. Do the Indians in OK live mostly on reservations or have they mixed in with the general population?
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.
Hey!I’m not giving up if I get to 2045 I’ll be about 100 years old.Something that I think with my families history is highly unlikely.
So I’m just being realistic.
Didn’t they predict this would happen in 2040 the last time around?
I just figured Antarctica was so harsh on its surface, they’d never try to move there. No walking across a warm border.
As more and more violent genes become integrated into the mainstream the annihilation of the human race with WMD will be inevitable. We won’t make it past year 2100.
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.

Reminds me of the Irish coming here.
Don’t give up the ship. See this interesting story here on winning the demographic war:
According to wikipedia.com 71.2% of CT’s population is non-hispanic white——that IS lily white compared to my state and more non-hispanic white than the national average.
If you had been to Russia you would be hard-pressed to find a reason to stay there. Tons of them flee this white wonderland.
