White Americans losing majority in under-5 age group, Census says
FNC(AP) ^ | June 13, 2013

Posted on 06/12/2013 11:07:47 PM PDT by South40

WASHINGTON – For the first time, America's racial and ethnic minorities now make up about half of the under-5 age group, the government said Thursday. It's a historic shift that shows how young people are at the forefront of sweeping changes by race and class.

The new census estimates, a snapshot of the U.S. population as of July 2012, comes a year after the Census Bureau reported that whites had fallen to a minority among babies. Fueled by immigration and high rates of birth, particularly among Hispanics, racial and ethnic minorities are now growing more rapidly in numbers than whites.

Based on current rates of growth, whites in the under-5 group are expected to tip to a minority this year or next, Thomas Mesenbourg, the Census Bureau's acting director, said.

I wonder what these numbers mean. Hispanics in the United States don’t have a high birthrate.

White America has about 15 years to make one of two choices;
1) Just give up the country and take the lumps they will mete out.
2) Drive ‘em out.

Society - any society - gets what it pays for.

When a society subsidizes unwed Black pregnancies, it gets unnumbered hordes of Blck children with one parent, and all the associated social problems.

It’s not rocket science.

I can attest to this by seeing it in everyday life because I have had to go into parts of town that no white man needs to be after dusk while working. You will find black families where there are 4 or 5 kids living with a single mom who may or may not be around if they have a drug or drinking problem. The will often be by themselves with the oldest looking after them and they may run from house to house r apt to apt. If the do have a father often he is just like the mother and may be sexually assaulting when the mother isnt home especially if he’s unemployed though he may be selling drugs and making more than he would at a regular job but is still getting foodstamps . And you wonder why so many end up in prison. Education really does make a difference in those environments.

I can’t force people to have children, can I? People who don’t want to have children don’t want to perpetuate their culture.

I don't see why that's a racial issue. It's okay if I pay for white people who abuse the system, but not of other races? It seems to me it doesn't matter what race they are.

Besides that, who is benefiting from these programs? Probably not the recipients, who don't really improve the quality of their life. There are people who make a lot of money off the government.

Also, the United States contributes a lot of money to programs designed to coercively stop people in the third world from having children. Why should I pay for that? Why should I pay for the population control programs of Warren Buffet, who is a billionaire?

I don’t consider them “white.” They are brown. Whites are European.

Quote from the article:

“—Among the under-5 age group, 22 percent live in poverty, typically in more rural states such as Mississippi, Arkansas and Louisiana. Black toddlers were most likely to be poor, at 41 percent, followed by Hispanics at 32 percent and whites at 13 percent. Asian toddlers had a poverty rate of 11 percent.”

You said “I don’t see why that’s a racial issue. It’s okay if I pay for white people who abuse the system, but not of other races?” You do realize that there are very few whites compared to others who abuse the system now right? It is mostly a black and Hispanic problem. It is a cultural issue. If you don’t want race to be the focus then let’s call it “culture.” As somebody stated above, it is fueled by welfare dependency for one thing.

From the article:

“More so than ever, we need to recognize the importance of young minorities for the growth and vitality of our labor force and economy,” said William H. Frey, a demographer at the Brookings Institution who analyzed the census data.”

What the hell does this even mean?

Now you’re getting it.

It’s nice of you - and very, very modern - to be so “color neutral” about government payouts.

But I have to wonder about the intellectual acuity of someone who can’t see that the White race is subsidizing the uncontrolled growth of the Black race.

No “racism” intended; however, when the constitution requires racial neutrality, it rankles a bit that I’m paying for an entire generation of Black people to abstain from educational self-improvement and run riot in their neighborhoods shooting each other and killing the nighbors with stray rounds.

How is anyone subsidizing, “the uncontrolled growth of the black race?” What is the black birth rate? 2.0? Less than replacement rate? How is that uncontrolled growth? I guess you are happy that you are subsidizing abortion, which is prevalent among blacks?

If they don’t have children, then they aren’t going to be a force. Simple as that. Abort your kids, contracept away and the nation turns to the folks who are choosing to have their children.

Here is a wild and unpleasant thought:

What if a future generation of young whites decide they are tired of being discriminated against and realize that all they have to do is to start going regularly to a certain kind of religious building and they can instantly join the ranks of the most feared and respected minority.

If nobody will have their backs you cannot predict what they will do for their own survival.

This can't be tolerated. If whites are even close to still half we need amnesty and start importing more minorities. Oh yeah, that's what the DEMs and GOP are doing.

“Hispanics in the United States don’t have a high birthrate.”

They have a higher birthrate than whites; a lot of anchor babies here in NJ (and marriage isn’t in the picture for many of them).

“When a society subsidizes unwed Black pregnancies, it gets unnumbered hordes of Blck children with one parent, and all the associated social problems.”

Here in NJ a growing number of whites have children out of wedlock, as well as Hispanics. Welfare reform passed in 1996 to address that issue, not the blacks; the country simply can’t afford to do the same for whites & Hispanics.

“White America” has to make that choice now; don’t believe there is time. My children were born years ago (in a nice hospital in a wealthy part of Essex County, NJ); in the maternity ward there were about 20 babies: two white, two black, one Asian, and fifteen Hispanics. In a few years they will all be old enough to vote. The Hispanics ones are citizens by way of being born here.

60,000 babies born in Parkland Memorial Hospital in Dallas ALONE are ANCHOR BABIES - babies born to illegals and (wrongly) considered U.S. citizens. You do the math nationwide. This is an invasion, completely tolerated by both parties.

Blacks are irrelevant. This is entirely Mexican-driven. Millions every year invade or have anchor babies here. It is accelerating - by design.

I find that quite odd... they refuse to classify Hispanics as Caucasian. Some are mixed with Asian and Black... blended... but also “white”, as is my beautiful white blue eyed quarter black nephew..... Maybe there will come a time when the color of your skin will not make much of a difference. This will never happen under a Democrap administration.

Well, first of all, the way they are tracking isn't even accounting "white people" accurately.

But, what do you want to do? If "white people" don't want to have children, what do you propose to do?

That is patently the most ridiculous pronouncement I have ever read here

And if you believe that then you are wholly ignorant

Have I ever met an illegal?

I live in Nashville proper...they are likely 10% of our population and the only thing keeping Catholic parishes in attendance on Sunday. My neighbor stopped going to the local church here in Franklin because it's turned into a latino congregation>

Catholic clergy here caters to them...illegal or not...
