Minorities Account For More Than Half Of U.S. Births
PHOTOS.COM
America is becoming more of a minority Nation.

For the first time in history, racial and ethnic minorities now make up more than half of all of the children born in the United States.

According to new Census Bureau estimates, 50.4 percent of U.S. births in the 12-month period ending July 2011 were minority babies.

On the whole, the Nation’s minority population also continues to rise. Minorities increased 1.9 percent to 114.1 million, or 36.6 percent of the total U.S. population, due in part to waves of immigration that brought in young families and boosted the number of Hispanic women in their prime childbearing years.

More information from the Census Bureau:

  • The most populous national minority group remains Hispanics, who numbered 52 million in 2011; they also were the fastest growing, with their population increasing by 3.1 percent since 2010. This boosted the Hispanic share of the Nation’s total population to 16.7 percent in 2011, up from 16.3 percent in 2010.
  • African-Americans were the second largest minority group in the United States, at 43.9 million in 2011 (up 1.6 percent from 2010).
  • Asians, who numbered 18.2 million nationally in 2011, were the second fastest-growing minority group, growing by 3.0 percent since 2010.

  • Karolyn

    I bet that’s scary for a lot of people, especially racists and bigots.

    • MAP

      Karolyn, with all due respect, that is one of the most pathetic statements of leftist stupid talk I have ever seen. With such idiocy coming from the people, there is no wonder as to why this country is collapsing. Totally stupid!

      • Thor

        Hey, Karolyn…nice to see you up and at’em. Since it is a well-established historic observance that immigrants to any country—perhaps, especially the US—change that country, largely to be more like that country from which they came and in direct proportion to the numbers that immigrate, I’d be curious to know two things: 1) which of these countries you favor over the US and 2) just what it is about Mexico you so admire.

    • Sirian

      Karolyn, your true idiocy has escaped once again. Feeling wonderful? Probably so.

      • Karolyn

        All I have to say is “Get real!” You can bet that there are a lot of people who are upset by the fact that caucasians will be in the minority in another 20 years, and you can take that to the bank.

      • Thor

        Lessee…the stats pretty much indicate that Caucasians are in the minority globally…eh, and look at what fine shape the globe is in at the moment. Duh….what is so attractive about that to you, Miss K?

    • Nadzieja Batki

      Karolyn,why are you frightened?
      Is it that you know that the minorities that you slobber and gush over will be taking over your job since they won’t mind getting paid less. That you won’t be getting the government goodies because they will push you away to get their own share.
      Your handlers are looking over what you post and they see you failing to convince people to come over to your side. No one on this site has said,”Oh Karolyn, you wonderful creature let us become a Liberal/Leftist just like you”.

      • eddie47d

        I would say that the majority here are the ones scared to death of blacks and Mexican Americans since you all hash over it on a daily basis. There is nothing wrong with racial pride but some of you get carried away in what whites will lose not what this country can gain from our diverse nation. Bashing Karolyn didn’t help your outlook either. If some of you don’t learn to get along with diversity there may indeed become a day of reckoning. Where those “Magic Negros” and “Illegals” you call derogatory names won’t have short memories and they will remember how you treated their bretheran. The time for coming together is now in educating the good things America has to offer and stop excluding one race over another.

  • MAP

    The replacement of our population with that of abundant, cheap, third-world labor for the profit of corporate America and the international bankers continues at a break-neck speed. And we, the decedents of the pioneers that settled this country and carved a civilization out of a wilderness, what do get? We get to pay the taxes and foot the bill for this system of disinheritance.

    • Karolyn

      MAP – What do we get? We get to live whatever life we choose in the best country in the world. So you’re saying that everyone in the minority community (now) is “cheap labor” and won’t be paying taxes? Quite a narrow view, don’t you think? Why not see them as just like you, with children who will grow up and make something of themselves.

      • wandamurline

        So you say, but if the Republic falls and that is a possibility under the current regime, you will see that everyone will be poor….everyone will be at the hands of the government….take a look at Russia and some of the other communist countries. I don’t have a problem with Hispanics, Asians or anyone else who comes to this country to be AMERICAN, but I do have a problem with giving US citizenship to illegal aliens’ babies…no matter what race they are…Asian, Hispanic, Irish, Cuban, Arab…it doesn’t matter….two wrongs do not make a right and two illegals do not make a legal.

      • MAP

        Karolyn, the leftist dreamer. Visit a place in this country that is the multicultural paradise. They are wsr zones. People of different nationalities ae battling it out in the streets. There is mayham and murder on a daily basis. The blacks have been in this country as long as mine and the divisions still exist. You don’t live in the real world. Your entire argument is other-wordly, unrealistic and stupid. Typical leftist nonsense.

  • Chester

    MAP, most of these children were born to second, third, or more generation American citizens. In case you hadn’t noticed, we have been accepting LEGAL immigrants from all over the world and not just Europe for a long time now. Truth be known, this is EXACTLY the way we took over this continent, we out-reproduced the natives, then, instead of peacefully joining with them, the way our current group of immigrants are joining us, we proceeded to kick the bejeesus out of them and put what was left of them on reservations. We are still thumping on the Native Americans by lumping them all together under that description instead of acknowledging that many of the groups were totally separate and independent peoples until the white man came here.

    • MAP

      More leftist nonsense. We were colonies of England. All our institutions are english. Massive immigration began in the north as the corporate powers began exploiting cheap, foreign labor that could be exported into the country. With your bleeding-heart, nonsensical diatribe, you better start learning a couple dozen languages and ready to honor a half dozen diffent religions and gods. And keep some guns handy. Multicultralism is as stupid as anything else that comes out of the idiots on the left. Multiculturalism, another name for anarchy, chaos and yet another leftist disaster.

      • Daveh234

        What history lesson are you telling? Our forefathers immigrated here and “took” what they felt they had a right to. Someone else’s land and property.
        That has nothing to do with left or right

      • Fancyshawl

        MAP, you better thank any Native you know, specifically any of the iroquois confederacy, for the vision our people had for the basics of democracy. Otherwise you’d still be living under an English-style rule, and you wouldn’t be able to enjoy your freedom of speech(although you tend to put your foot in your mouth sometimes). Our people contributed more to the Constitution than you can imagine.

  • sabulaman

    Karolyn, just keep in mind that these new babies are the future of this country, and are the citizens that will provide the taxes necessary to carry on the entitlements, and safeguards for the needy in the years ahead. Do you really think that they are capable? Their parents are the same people receiving entitlements now. Where does that leave the old people 20-30 years from now. Tis is a serious matter, and something to think about.

  • Louis Lemieux

    I was born white, heterosexual and raised as a Christian in the US. If I had been born black, homosexual and raised as a Muslim, I would want people and society to treat me as well as I’m being treated right now. “Love your neighbor as yourself“ means to love and accept him for what he is.

    • http://http//yahoo.com sophillyjimmy

      Karolyn, I guess this statistic makes your liberal heart thrilled, but doesn’t it seem like a coincidence that this happened for the first time in American history since the king of welfare Obama has been in office, keep being happy that your tax dollars are paying for many of these minorities to pump out more kids like an assembly line or are you perhaps one of those that just keep having more babies to increase your public assistance income while your kids are running the streets at all hours of the day and night while you lay down with every man that supplies you with a bag of crack.

    • Nadzieja Batki

      Keep trying to convince yourself that all must obey you because you say so.

    • Nadzieja Batki

      Having problems convincing anyone that you are Christian?

  • sabulaman

    Louis, all people are born heterosexual. With just a handful of exceptions.

    • Louis Lemieux

      Somewhere between 10% and 15% of world population are homosexual.

      • Nadzieja Batki

        Instead of being a stupid and childish brat it may behoove you to reread the article if it is possible you even read it the first time.

  • sabulaman

    Louis, that’s 10% -15% of people that have chosen to be homosexual. They weren’t born that way. Enough of this nonsense.

  • http://http//yahoo.com sophillyjimmy

    Louis, I agree that we should all be treated equally which means treated as we treat others and there is no denying that many of the people you want treated equally are, since many are thugs, mugger, rapist, murderers and terrorists and they are treated as such.
    But in order to find out, they must be born, and I bet your equality doesn’t extend to the babies that are torn out of their mothers wombs limb from limb during an abortion.
    Would you care to let us know your stance on the equality of these poor babies that don’t even get the chance to breathes the air we all share or do you only believe in equality of people who are already out of their mothers wombs?

  • http://none Christy

    Within all races there are people who do better and integrate better than others. Here in Norway, we have been living side by side with many minorities for years now with more or less success.The problem now is all the Somalians and the people who we “rescue” from war, famine and natural disasters. They produce children “en masse”! The women will never be integrated, never educate themselves and never be able to get jobs within areas where hygiene is important due to the long robes they drag around in the streets. The minorities account for the high birth rate we have had the last few years. I think just in my town in just 5 years, 27000 people, we will see a very different picture. Integration is so difficult with people of such different background and with a much more strict interpretation of Islam than in other cultures. The goal of the extremists is to outnumber all the others. In that way, they will gain control in the end. Ok, Im not rascist or anything. I love diversity. Im myself in an interacial marriage. But personnally, I dont like the develloppment we see here and especially when I know that many of these people will never be a part of our society, speak our language, get work, and only produce children which they get handsomely paid for. Why should they work?

    • http://att.net mila

      Now U.S looks like third world country in some parts because of immigrants. Before, White Americans used to move into safe neighborhoods, but now economy is worse. I don’t believe that all White Americans can afford to move out so easily and they will face crimes, and other problems.

  • chuckb

    if you want to see the future of the u.s., then take a look at south af5rica. the bleeding heart liberals destroyed a self dependent prosperous nation, the same way they are destroying this country. it won’t be long.
    take a look at the nations these illegal and a few legal aliens are coming from, most of these countries like africa haven’t invented the wheel yet.
    we pay them to produce babies , grant them free education, our own citizens can’;t afford,
    we have a welfare class that is becoming a majority vote, we have one as president so if you think we are not on a downhill slope better think again. in the shadows we have a deceptive group of people who are power hungry and are using the welfare class to obtain their goal, complete destruction of the christian structure in this country.

  • JimH

    When they’re not a minority anymore, who will they blame for all their problems?

    • Nadzieja Batki

      When the message is not liked the messenger is blamed.

    Yee! Haw! Let’s teach’em to be conservatives!!

      rodney wolfe, how are you going to do that,you can’t teach them to read.

  • Louis Lemieux

    It’s never been easy for me to decide between pro-life and pro-choice. Has a woman a right to decide what she wants to do with a part of her body that is not viable by itself? Maybe and maybe not. Whatever the right answer may be, there’s no doubt in my mind this is a lot less serious than killing a fully grown person with a nervous system fully developed and who is fully aware of what’s going on. I’m talking here about the death penalty.

    We all have our reasons for thinking what were thinking and for being what we are. Why then support violence through words or actions? All of us humans on earth form one great family and that in spite of all our religious, political and ideological differences. No doubt we have to protect ourselves from those who’s purpose in life is to harm others, but happiness is peace and peace is love and kindness to all.

      Peculiar justification per louis: “there’s no doubt in my mind this is a lot less serious than killing a fully grown person with a nervous system fully developed and who is fully aware of what’s going on. I’m talking here about the death penalty.”
      An easy way to justify killing older people – infirm – mentally disturbed – those that hadn’t had much of life, those that had too much… Interesting.

      • Louis Lemieux

        Where did I say that!!!

      • http://folkartist.wordpress.com Libertytrain

        It’s your words in the quotes in my comment from your comment above mine. Unless that’s not you…..

    • Rebecca

      Here is a piece of information that may help you make a decision on how you feel about abortion:

      Look up “fetal development – Central Nervous System”. It develops very early on in the gestation process, somewhere between four and eight weeks. This would mean that the baby could feel pain as early as it is possible to know that one is pregnant.

    • GiveMeLiberty

      Hey Lou Lou, I’m two days late here but just have to comment. First, why do liberals struggle with this subject? Let me offer this, they struggle from the guilt of murdering innocence in the womb.

      Regarding the fully developed adult who is facing the death penalty….good riddens! That fully developed adult, with a fully developed nervous system, made a fully developed DECISION when they committed whatever atrocity their state deemed horrific enough to be punished so severely. Then after a trail by a jury of their peers, several hundred appeals later and ALMOST dead from natural causes anyhow, they have to take a long, pain-free nap! No pain to the nervous system, no undue physical pain as they probably caused their victims.

      I struggle with this question…how do libby’s advocate murder of innocence and then protect and defend the worst of the worst, guilty criminal slim balls? A true believer in humanity would protect the unborn and remove the filth from our house.

  • Patriot

    The reality is 53% of Latino births are out of wedlock, their teenage birthrate is the fastest growing segment of the U.S. population which fuel their high HS dropout rate which is close to 50% when middle school dropouts are factored. 70% of the prison population are dropouts and commit 75% of all crime.

    • Louis Lemieux

      To fully understand another human being we would need to have his exact brain 100%. We are all different and no one can think exactly like someone else. No one really knows in dept the problems one had and the problems he still has in his life and his mental capacity to deal with those problems. The functioning of a human mind is mysterious. Criminal responsibility has never been proven by science. We can judge and determine if someone has in fact killed another person or done something real bad, but we can never understand fully the complexity of the reasons that pushed him in doing it. Let’s hate sin, but not the sinner. Let’s hate crime, but not the criminal. HUMILITY IS ACCEPTING THAT WE ARE NOT OMNISCIENT, THAT WE SHOULD NOT TRY TO BE GOD. It’s only by changing the hearts of men and women towards kindness that we can make this world a better place in which to live. Let’s hate sin, but not the sinner. This is what the great psychologist Jesus has been teaching us for 2000 years.

  • Louis Lemieux

    Pheromone studies.Recent research conducted in Sweden has suggested that gay and straight men respond differently to two odors that are believed to be involved in sexual arousal. The research showed that when both heterosexual women and gay men are exposed to a testosterone derivative found in men’s sweat, a region in the hypothalamus is activated. Heterosexual men, on the other hand, have a similar response to an estrogen-like compound found in women’s urine. The conclusion is that sexual attraction, whether same-sex or opposite-sex oriented, operates similarly on a biological level.

    Studies of brain structure.A number of sections of the brain have been reported to be sexually dimorphic; that is, they vary between men and women. There have also been reports of variations in brain structure corresponding to sexual orientation. In 1990, Swaab and Hofman reported a difference in the size of the suprachiasmatic nucleus between homosexual and heterosexual men. In 1992, Allen and Gorski reported a difference related to sexual orientation in the size of the anterior commissure. –[ Wikipedia ]

      “Louis Lemieux,”

      I KNOW THERE ARE TWO BIO-SEXUAL ORIENTATIONS – HETEROSEXUALITY AND HOMOSEXUALITY. HOWEVER, YOU ARE ON THE WRONG SITE TO BE MAKING THIS ARGUMENT. PEOPLE OF FAITH WILL NEVER EXCEPT THE DATA YOU PRESENTED – ESPECIALLY, FROM A SEXUAL “FREE-FOR-ALL” COUNTRY LIKE, SWEDEN.

    Just in a few more generations the word minority may become obsolete.We may have grandchildren that would have the same type of background as Tiger Woods and the world will finally be at peace within without any of the racial profiling and slurs found in todays world.Just thinking.

    • chuckb

      yes, in a few more generations the word minority will be obsolete, in a few more generations at the rate we are going, especially four more years of barry and there will be no more usa, we will become a third world country and our scientific advancements will be wasted on a population of non productive people enslaved by an ideology of socialism.
      this country has been brainwashed since the 1960′s, civil rights is their battle cry, anti-semite and racist. we now have a man in the white house that couldn’t build a house, he couldn’t repair a car, he never served the country, knows absolutely nothing about the operations of a republic other than what they advise him over a teleprompter. yes that is what liberals have in mind they think everyone will be skipping down the freeway smokin dope and listening to rap. oh yes, the same kind of background as tiger woods or maybe o.j. simpson, wouldn’t that be the cats a*s. neither one of these guys could make a living if it wasn’t for a golf club or a football, they qre adept with women though.. that’s exactly why third world countries are starving and non productive.

    • Grumpy

      Yeah, Black daddy, white mommy (or visa-versa) will be great…….then I will be cool with both blacks and whites…..juss saying…..

  • ranger hall

    Simple, WHITE folks cannot afford to have Children,Maybe we should become more like the Blacks and Mexicans, Spend more time on welfare. Well we are only getting what we asked for.

    • eddie47d

      That is so untrue Ranger Hall. it is because white families learned a few decades ago that prosperity improves with smaller number of children. Those same Elites (usually white and Republican) will tell minorities to skip family planning. They tell them it’s a Democrat scheme to force minorities into abortion. Instead of those Elites being honest with minorities on birth control and wise planning they keep them “down on the farm” for cheap labor. Yes you are getting what you asked for.

      • CHRISTOPHER ALLEN HORTON

        “eddie47d,”

        BELIEVE ME, SIR, I AM NOT TRYING TO “PICK ON” YOU. NEGRO MALES IMPREGNATE FEMALES ON A FREQUENT BASIS BECAUSE THEY LIKE “UNPROTECTED” SEX. PERIOD. CONSERVATIVES DID NOT CONVINCE NEGROES TO BE “PRO-LIFE.” NEGROES HAVE ALWAYS BEEN “PRO-LIFE” – IT IS A PRE-COLONIAL-AFRICAN VALUE TO PRODUCE AS MANY BABIES AS POSSIBLE. MY FATHER TOLD MY MOTHER TO GIVE HIM AS MANY BABIES AS POSSIBLE AS FAST AS SHE COULD; I HAVE A BROTHER AND SISTER WHO ARE THE SAME AGE FOR TWENTY-THREE DAYS [THEY ARE NOT TWINS]. NEGRO MALES OF MY FATHER’S GENERATION (AND, EARLIER) BELIEVE IT IS A WOMAN’S DUTY TO BE “BABY-MAKERS” AND OBEY THEIR HUSBANDS.

    I think this is very good. Diversity of population is an excellent thing. And It would be nice if the population became more even demographically.

  • GiveMeLiberty

    Oh, here’s a bold thought…it’s a fact in our country today, certain minority groups feel oppressed and oh so profiled. Just wait until the Asians become the weathly majority in this country, they don’t care what your skin color, they just hate everybody who doesn’t work! When that happens, certain minority groups will yearn for the days of the gravey train when they enjoyed getting money for little or no work.
