Whites Are Minority in Texas: Texas officially a 'Majority-Minority' State
Houston News/Michael Berry Show ^ | May 25, 2012 | KTRH staff

Posted on 05/25/2012 7:44:17 AM PDT by Do Not Make Fun Of His Ears

With more than half the population being a non-white 55.2 percent, Texas joins New Mexico, California, Hawaii, and Washington D.C. with a "majority-minority" status, according to the U.S. Census Bureau.

Majority-minority is a legal term used to describe a U.S. state that has a racial composition of less than 50 percent white. The Census Bureau defines individuals who are considered 'white' as non-Hispanics who have family origins in Europe, the Middle East, or North Africa.

It has nothing to do with race. It has everything to do with voting patterns, and this is a bad omen.

These are U.S. Census Bureau figure. After the last census, I wouldn’t put to much stock in them. They counted all of the illegal aliens who are in the U.S. illegally. They are not Americans and are not supposed to vote. Of course, we know how that voting thing is going these days.

If this is conclusively proven, Governor Perry must immediately move to require all State, City, County and Town governments to realign any and all affirmative action plans, procedures, contract set-asides, etc. to reflect whites’ new minority status. Anything else is institutional racism. Free the whites from oppression and bias! We demand our due! We need to get ‘paid’ for a change!

That’s just the point. They DO vote. The fact that they are here and becoming the majority is not a good sign.

Headlines like this are just trying bait the worst in people.

Only Liberals care what race you are, so they can pigeon-hole you into a campaign demographic for pandering or smearing.

Texas is the canary in the coal mine. Do you think this is not spreading? Do you think illegals, who don’t respect the Texas border, will respect any other border?

Can you not see 20 years down the road? This is nothing to take lightly.

White women are too busy working and pursuing careers to have and raise children. Plus, it’s a lot of work to raise children and more women these days aren’t into that.

Let the third worlders do it!

In your haste to call this racist, please don’t miss the point.

The electorate is being watered down with illegals, to the tipping point, and this is not likely to stop until America is no longer America any more.

That is what happens when you allow illegals to overtake a state by breeding out the whites over decades.

Whitey cannot be a “minority”. “Minority” only has to do with who is the "oppressor in power" and that’s always Whitey.(at least that’s what they told me in college)

Yes, soon the “Gimmie” crowd will make it impossible for Right of Center politicians to win elections, which means you will be taxed and stolen from without any electoral say. That will make the Constitution, Congress, and this Union pointless.

Anybody know the racial demographics of Texas, both in 1836 (independence) and at statehood (1845)?

I wouldn’t be surprised if whites were in the minority then, too.

Does this mean the “minority” class can quit working and stay home and make babies while the “majority” group works to support us? Sounds good - I could lay around all day with my husband....uh, I mean my “fiance” (as the women on tv call their live in boyfriends/baby daddies even after 9 years)

That is when liberty was in the ascension and not in decline.

That is when America’s concept of individual liberty was strong.

It’s important to wake up and see the dynamics at work here, and not have our heads in the sand pretending this is just “more of the same.”

If this was happening in a different country, we’d call it ethnic cleansing. 60% of Hispanics vote for the more liberal candidate. Adding more and more means we lose Texas and any chance at the presidency. Anyone who claims this is a non-issue is fooling themselves. This is a fundamental change to the country in a very bad direction - the left.

I recall when whites became official minority in Cleveland ~1999, and blacks the majority ethnic group; it was suggested by some that it was time to do away with programs supporting blacks, since they were now the majority. Bottom line, legally the term "minority" is defined by statute as black, hispanic, and American-Indian... so whites can never be eligible for "minority" programs, and likewise even if they become the majority, those races will never become ineligible. Ain't life sweet!

Massively, almost totally American, like 84% to 97% American, remove the slaves from that count and you will see how the voters of early Texas created a nation, and then the greatest state in America.

Yes, and in some ways I wish we could live in that past. The reality in 2012 is that statism is overtaking America in the guise of “fairness” and “redistribution of wealth.”

The flood across the border is drowning America, and the sooner we wake up and recognize it’s not about race but ideology, the better off we’ll be.

As I stated in my first comment, it’s not about race but about voting trends. Don’t get so caught up in “race” that you miss the whole point of what is happening before your very eyes.

Perry can look out his office window to East Austin which is full of illegals. He’s done nothing to send them packing. In fact, he’s done everything he can to keep them here with all the perks. We’ve had his Dream Act for many years in Texas.

Well.... None of my friends or family labeled themselves as white on the census in a preventative redistricting measure. I wouldn’t put too much stock in that census. We are all hispanics now.

Yes, I will translate it for you.

When the demographics shift, through illegal immigration or rewarding welfare mothers for having children out of wedlock, or other means, which results in a flood of Democrat voters who will destroy America as we once knew it, that is a bad thing.

We can then wave bye-bye to liberty and the very reason America was founded.

America as we know it will no longer exist.

Is that simpler for you to understand? Apologies for your confusion.

So race has nothing to do with it, voting patterns are everything, and in that is a bad omen, I still don’t get that.

Isn’t the race and how the people of that race vote, connected in the voting patterns?
