Census shows whites lose US majority among babies
Good news to the social engineers of America – they are winning their anti-White America quest. For the first time, minorities make up the majority of babies born in the USA. Whites now make up just under half of all children 3 years old, compared to 60% in 1990. Racial and ethnic minorities will become the U.S. majority by mid-century (I think sooner). This is the result of ‘democracy’ – everyone acting PC – in words and in government – so as not to offend and thereby allowing Thabo, Muhammad and Pedro into the country willy-nilly. By allowing this to happen – and of course enabling and enticing this to happen through generous welfare handouts – the USA is allowing White’s to become the minority in the country they founded and built up. Sound familiar? Well, it’s happening all over the globe, to all White-founded countries. We are allowing ‘diversity’ to trounce our homogenous, successful societies and create ethnic enclaves and separate societies. Mexicans have their own country, yet millions enter over the porous USA border annually to grab their share of the American Dream – for free. Of course this wouldn’t be as big a problem if they brought skills, money and morals with them. However, what they bring are unskilled people who feel an entitlement to be there. Once arrived, they quickly find their nearest welfare centre so that they can partake in the national sport of Entitlement Seeker. The Hispanic females also tend to sit at home and breed….and breed…..and breed – all on the USA tax dime. White America has only themselves to blame. Between guilt over slavery and South-of-the-border invaders, they haven’t got a hope in hell of ever becoming the majority again. By 2050 there will be a Mexican in the White House; America will be bankrupt and there won’t be many Whites left – only a bunch of Hispanics, Blacks and half-caste Whites in a third-world hell-hole. So much for the American Dream….

Preliminary census estimates also show the share of African-American households headed by women – made up of mostly single mothers – now exceeds African-American households with married couples, a sign of declining U.S. marriages overall but also continuing challenges for black youths without involved fathers.
The findings, based on the latest government data, offer a preview of final 2010 census results being released this summer that provide detailed breakdowns by age, race and householder relationships such as same-sex couples.
Demographers say the numbers provide the clearest confirmation yet of a changing social order, one in which racial and ethnic minorities will become the U.S. majority by midcentury.
“We’re moving toward an acknowledgment that we’re living in a different world than the 1950s, where married or two-parent heterosexual couples are now no longer the norm for a lot of kids, especially kids of color,” said Laura Speer, coordinator of the Kids Count project for the Baltimore-based Annie E. Casey Foundation.
“It’s clear the younger generation is very demographically different from the elderly, something to keep in mind as politics plays out on how programs for the elderly get supported,” she said. “It’s critical that children are able to grow to compete internationally and keep state economies rolling.”
Currently, non-Hispanic whites make up just under half of all children 3 years old, which is the youngest age group shown in the Census Bureau’s October 2009 annual survey, its most recent. In 1990, more than 60 percent of children in that age group were white.
William H. Frey, a demographer at the Brookings Institution who analyzed the data, said figures in the 2009 survey can sometimes be inexact compared with the 2010 census, which queries the entire nation. But he said when factoring in the 2010 data released so far, minorities outnumber whites among babies under age 2.
Twelve states and the District of Columbia now have white populations below 50 percent among children under age 5 – Hawaii, California, New Mexico, Texas, Arizona, Nevada, Florida, Maryland, Georgia, New Jersey, New York and Mississippi. That’s up from six states and the District of Columbia in 2000.
At current growth rates, seven more states could flip to “minority-majority” status among small children in the next decade: Illinois, North Carolina, Virginia, Colorado, Connecticut, South Carolina and Delaware.
By contrast, whites make up the vast majority of older Americans – 80 percent of seniors 65 and older and roughly 73 percent of people ages 45-64. Many states with high percentages of white seniors also have particularly large shares of minority children, including Arizona, Nevada, California, Texas and Florida.
“The recent emergence of this cultural generation gap in states with fast growth of young Hispanics has spurred heated discussions of immigration and the use of government services,” Frey said. “But the new census, which will show a minority majority of our youngest Americans, makes plain that our future labor force is absolutely dependent on our ability to integrate and educate a new diverse child population.”
Kenneth Johnson, a sociology professor and senior demographer at the University of New Hampshire, noted that much of the race change is being driven by increases in younger Hispanic women having more children than do white women, who have lower birth rates and as a group are moving beyond their prime childbearing years.
Because minority births are driving the rapid changes in the population, “any institution that touches or is impacted by children will be the first to feel the impact,” Johnson said, citing as an example child and maternal health care that will have to be attentive to minorities’ needs.
The numbers come amid public debate over hotly contested federal and state issues, from immigration and gay marriage to the rising cost of government benefits such as Medicare and Medicaid, that are resonating in different ways by region and demographics.
Alabama became the latest state this month to pass a wide-ranging anti-immigration law, which in part requires schools to report students’ immigration status to state authorities. That follows tough immigration measures passed in similarly Republican-leaning states such as Georgia, Arizona and South Carolina.
But governors in Massachusetts, New York and Illinois, which long have been home to numerous immigrants, have opted out of the federal Secure Communities program that aims to deport dangerous criminals, saying it has made illegal immigrants afraid of reporting crimes to police. California may soon opt out as well.
States also are divided by region over old-age benefits and gay marriage, which is legal in five states and the District of Columbia.
