Posted on 05/17/2012 5:53:01 AM PDT by Dysart
For the first time in U.S. history, whites of European ancestry account for less than half of newborn children, marking a demographic tipping point that is already changing the nation's politics, economy and workforce.
Among the roughly four million children born in the U.S. between July 2010 and July 2011, 50.4% belonged to a racial or ethnic group that in previous generations would have classified them as minorities, up from 48.6% in the same period two years earlier, the Census Bureau said Thursday. That was the first 12-month stretch in which non-Hispanic white children accounted for less than half the country's births.

the legend is all the same red.............what’s up with that
Anyone who really believes the government telling us that there are only 12 million illegals in this country needs to be riding in the short yellow bus.
More whites are required to work so that those on welfare can continue to procreate and pop out kids. White men such as myself are in the dubious position of having to work, pay taxes, pay my mortgage and bills, and then find time to have children. The “minorities” seem content procreating with little regard for the welfare of the child, so realistically, this report isn’t saying anything more than minorities are procreating at a faster rate than whites.
Minorities also tend to be incarcerated more and involved in more murders than whites, so the scales likely balance out over the span of decades.
I wondered also. Perhaps the legend didn’t want to appear raciss...
Clearly. Part of it is accounted for simply by the fact that whites *are* reproducing at a slower rt than other groups, and slower than in the past. IMO a five per cent share decline in white births within six yrs is dramatic. We're heading into JC Penney stock territory. I'll leave it to the sociologists to account for the drop-off, but it the answer is surely complex and to some extent predictable, I know that much.
In 50 years (or maybe less) the US will have become a Third World nation...all thanks to the immigration policies of the Rat Party,led by the likes of Ted Kennedy.
I’d like to see what percentage of GDP is created by white America? Hope these new ‘Americans’ aren’t too good to make refrigerators and drill for oil.
Gubmin’ jobs don’t count.
I wonder how many 1/32 American Indian's that percentage includes.... ;)
Last one out turn off the lights.
Lamestream media love to do this kind of alarmism, but it’s very misleading. To paraphrase Carville, “It’s the culture, stupid.”
Large proportion of Asians and Hispanics are assimilated to the mainstream American culture. Thus, they are not “minorities” in any meaningful way.
You could have done the same graphics years ago, including Italians and Greeks as “minorities,” and gotten the same kind of result.
You say that jokingly, but you are exactly right. Probably, the proportion is significant, and therefore, the data are meaningless.
The State has bought the new majority with the old majority's money.
Reform the social spending policies that reward poor, illiterate and largely illegal and watch the demographics quickly re-adjust.
UGH to much.... :>)
I blame the feminist movement, personally. More women working into their 30s and pushing their biological clocks further and further. When they do have babies, they have one, maybe two. Three-plus-child households are rare among whites.
Then there’s the media pushing this fake image of beauty, women become self-conscious and don’t want to have babies in fear of going all “fun house mirror.”
Meanwhile, those who do have babies young find out how difficult it is to raise a child with a lower income and don’t want to have another until they are “established.”
It’s become impossible to raise a child in a single-income household and still hold on to this ideal that life is all sunshine and butterflies. Reality is a cruel mistress, but minorities don’t care about that; many are content with sucking on the public teat.
“For the first time in U.S. history, whites of European ancestry...”
This is a completely bogus report!
What are Hispanics, but an artificially concocted ‘minority’ ethnic group that consist in large part of white Europeans of Spanish and sometimes Portuguese ancestry. If these “white Hispanics”, e.g. the Cameron Diazs or Ken Salazars, are included, then what happens to the numbers?
Additionally, at what point do mixed-race individuals become “white”? My infant son is 3/4 white, 1/4 Korean. Was he a white birth or a minority birth?
What happens to minority births when the middle class is unable to pay for any further welfare subsidies, and minority moms are informed that any kids they produce will have to be fed with what the moms earn themselves.
Don't be fooled. Plenty of Republicans/GOP wanted that cheap labor..and still do.
