Non-white births outnumber white births for the first time in US

    Minority races – Hispanics, blacks and Asians and other mixed races – accounted for 50.4 per cent of births over the year to July, accounting for a majority for the first time in US history.
    The demographic milestone had been expected for years in a country founded by European whites and that early on relied heavily on the work of enslaved African populations, then went through a civil war and civil rights battle over issues of race.
    In recent years, the growth of Hispanic populations immigrating from Latin America has hastened a decline in the majority status of white births, the census data suggested.

    The milestone has been reached; though the milestone seems at this time more like a tombstone. In a short time, possibly as short as a quarter of a decade, the US will be indistinguishable, economically, culturally and criminally from Southern American countries like Brazil.

    Umm, there's no thread about native americans not outnumbering caucasians.

    Why the negs? I'm just telling the truth. America was stolen from the natives, it's just plain hypocrisy for people to turn around and complain at how caucasians are now being outnumbered!

    if you include hispanic whites the US population is 75% white. not sure why they even divide hispanic whites from non hispanic whites. seems really odd.

    these rapid ethnic changes will ruin america. america will balkanise and states will begin to succeed from the union.

    the future of humanity seems to rest with the mono racial cultures in south east asia like china, south korea and japan.

    People don't really seem to care about native americans. I wonder if it's because there's barely any left and they've lost their culture.

    In the US, the term 'Hispanic' refers to inhabitants of Latin America. These people are overwhelmingly mestizo (mixed European and Amerindian), which is why they aren't considered white.

    well, according to this 53% of hispanics and latinos are white and 36.7% mestizo, mulatto.

    Hmm, really? Mexico is 80% mestizo, so that doesn't seem accurate.

    None of this is true.

    American ''Whites'' are not racially homogenous at all, they are not like ethnic-Europeans who have zero to minimal mtDNA/YDNA non-Caucasoid race admixture. In contrast, American ''Whites'' have substantial Negroid and Amerindian admixture.... so although they self-identify as ''White'', there is little white about them.

    ''30% of all White Americans, approximately 66 million people, have a median of 2.3% of Black African admixture.''
    http://www.upi.com/Top_News/2002/05/...3561020909970/

    Then of course there is the fact many ''White'' Americans have Amerindian blood.

    Most who self-identity as ''White'' in America are in fact racially admixed and not White at all.

    Because people like Zimmerman are considered 'white hispanic' so you can't really say that white hispanic and simply white are one and the same.
    Also China, South Korea and Japan are not in south east asia but simply east asia.
    Southeast asian countries include the Philippines, Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand, Vietnam and other countries around that area.

    I imagine there may have been a similar debate in America when people of English & British heritage were eventually outnumbered by all the other ethnic groups - Scandinavians, italians, germans, blacks, native americans etc.

    Incidentally, how far are we from this same scenario in Britain with the explosion of babies of mixed race parents, and immigrant booms, we are heading down the same path.

    who gives a flying dam, are you prejudice against non-whites or are you simply an individual who is attention seeking on internet forums like TSR?

    These threads always go the same, a load of angry white people come in and say "the world is gone to the dogs, we're all going to die, black people are evils", and a load of angry non-white people come in and either say "the world is racist" or "yes we are going to take over the world muahaha" like they are single-handedly leading an army of mixed race people to world domination.

    And those of us who are normal watch and wonder what the heck is going on

    Unsubstantiated assertion. Does race/colour determine the economic success, crime rates and culture of a nation?

    Well I'm white but not a huge fan of racially stereotyping - does this make me abnormal?

    The world is going mixed raced. I have always said this and thankfully its happening.

    The only thing is that we need to make sure this happens to the UK. IMO it would be a great day when become a minority majority state like the US and this will ensure racial fairness across the country. No more white majority.

    We will have this day too and the faster it becomes the better. The UK needs this IMO.

    It is still the largest ethnicity however.

    While there are slightly less white births, 'non white' births are made up of Hispanics, Asians, Blacks etc.
