More white Americans are dying than being born for the first time in modern history—suggesting minorities and newcomers will play an important role in fueling the population growth America's recovering economy needs to thrive.
The number of non-Hispanic white Americans who died in the year ended June 2012 exceeded the number who were born during that period by about 12,400, the first "natural decrease" for this group. That's according to a U.S. Census Bureau report released Thursday and an analysis of separate data from the National Center for Health Statistics by demographer Kenneth Johnson at the University of New Hampshire. The white population edged up in absolute terms last year thanks to immigration, Census figures show.

The birth derth is a consequence of the Great Obama Recession.
Could abortion, destruction of the family, and unemployment have anything to do with this?!
I've changed the channel whenever I've seen him, since that statement.
George Lopez is a superlefty from what I know
Don’t forget to blame Protestantism for its ungodly embrace of contraception about 80 years ago.
It will be interesting to see what kind of a country the permanent victim class will produce once the major contributors die off.
High taxes would be mostly responsible. When taxes drive the cost of living high, people tend to prioritize living over having children.
That didn’t change as a consequence of Obama, but delayed marriage and child-bearing DID happen ~ just like in post famine heavily Catholic Ireland.
thats what i wonder too. who will pay for everything
For the younger generations racial distinctions are becoming a thing of the past which is a good thing
My son in law and grand kids may well be listed as hispanic.
We live in a multi racial melting pot, just like our white European ancestors became an ethnic melting pot of European mixed national origin.
This is a good thing unless the PC diversity pimps and racial balkenizers screw it up.
In addition to that whites are fertility-wise inferior to Hispanics, according to Jeb Bush, and cannot create the powerful economic engine the country needs.
Where is "Affirmative Reproductive Action" for whitey? : )
Yes, I know; but his sitcom did not shove that in the viewer’s face and was fairly funny.
Protestantism and humanists initially, with a majority of Roman Catholics belatedly, and Liberal Jews towing the line, too. Legalized abortion added to the dearth as well. Americans of European stock have no one, no one, to blame, but themselves. One of the Pope’s in the late 19th Century called contraception, race suicide. I guess he wasn’t so wrong after all. Hence the Pope’s subsequently condemning it for several reasons. End result, the dwindling white population around the world. The America I grew up in is long gone, I don’t hardly recognize it anymore. A tragedy of our own making.
Indeed. IMHO onerous taxes, particularly the federal income tax, have been the greatest destructive force to the American family.
The wonders of Catholicism produced the paradises that are Mexico, most of South and Central America, and the lazier half of Europe (the south).
We need population growth to "thrive"?
India and China have collectively about 3 billion people depending on whose estimates you believe, and neither of them "thrived" just because of their numbers.
It was only after they adopted property rights and free market practices that they started to go anywhere.
So per capita income - which is what is needed to go up - has nothing to do with population growth.
Straw man argument from the population pimps at the WSJ.
How are all those non-whites going to feed themselves when all the rich white people are gone?
Well, in case of a National Emergency such as this, I'm prepared to do my part ;-)
The living will come to envy the dead. Mercifully, it will be short lived. Sorry, boys. With any luck, I’ll be contentedly pushing up the daisies by then. I’ve done what I could for my progeny. The rest is up to them.
