Whites To Be Minority Within A Generation, Does It Matter For Race Relations?


Race is, and will always be, a divisive topic in American discourse. Controversial media coverage of the shooting of Trayvon Martin, a black teenager, by George Zimmerman — described as a “white-Hispanic” in certain news reports — is proof that the racial pains of America’s yesteryear are not going anywhere anytime soon.

But a new poll from The Associated Press presents a question for people who place the blame for challenges facing minorities today on an America of yesterday: What happens when whites no longer make up the majority of America’s population?

The poll indicates that whites will reach minority status in the United States for the first time in the Nation’s history by 2043.

While white-on-minority racism certainly isn’t completely dead in the Nation, it cannot be argued by any reasonable person that the Nation has not made great strides in terms of racial unity and equality — to the credit of a combination of grass-roots, legislative and individual efforts. Likewise, a degree of racial prejudice among minority populations is also alive and well.

In a Nation that has done so much in the name of racial equality and built entire institutions on the basis that white Americans have used majority status to vastly abuse minorities throughout history, AP’s findings indicate that policymakers will have to form a whole new understanding of how previously installed race protections may need to change in the future.

According to AP’s report:

  • The population younger than 5 stood at 49.9 percent minority in 2012.
  • For the first time in more than a century, the number of deaths now exceeds births among white Americans. This “natural decrease” occurred several years before the government’s original projection, a sign of the white population decline soon to arrive. For now, the white population is still increasing slightly, due to immigration from Europe.
  • As a whole, the nonwhite population increased by 1.9 percent to 116 million, or 37 percent of the U.S. The fastest percentage growth is among multiracial Americans, followed by Asians and Hispanics. Non-Hispanic whites make up 63 percent of the U.S.; Hispanics, 17 percent; blacks, 12.3 percent; Asians, 5 percent; and multiracial Americans, 2.4 percent.
  • About 353 of the nation’s 3,143 counties, or 11 percent, are now “majority-minority.” Six of those counties tipped to that status last year: Mecklenburg, N.C.; Cherokee, Okla.; Texas, Okla.; Bell, Texas; Hockley, Texas; and Terrell, Texas.
  • In 2012, 13 states and the District of Columbia had an under-5 age population that was “majority-minority,” up from five states in 2000. In 25 states and the District of Columbia, minorities now make up more than 40 percent of the under-5 group.
  • Among the under-5 age group, 22 percent live in poverty, typically in more rural states such as Mississippi, Arkansas and Louisiana. Black toddlers were most likely to be poor, at 41 percent, followed by Hispanics at 32 percent and whites at 13 percent. Asian toddlers had a poverty rate of 11 percent.

Could it be time for Americans to forever forbid legitimacy to people pulling the race card when there is no obvious indication of racial discrimination? And will it ever be possible to call the Nation “post-racial” with any real accuracy? Only time will tell; but in a forever-polarized society inbred with political correctness, probably not.

    Blacks are already targeting whites all over the country playing games like polar bear hunting where they find the biggest white guy, sucker punch him then gang up on him and beat the hell out of him, knock out, another game of hunting down whtes and beating them, and bleed white girl bleed, where black girls attack white girls and beat them until they bleed. The government and mainstream media ignore it. They dont report it hoping whites wont find out. Blacks and liberals are the minority now, what terrible things will happen to whites when they are the majority? And you want to take away my guns? Who will protect me when they come hunting for me or my family? Obama? For all you whites who voted for this, Wake UP before it is too late and life as we know it is gone forever.

    More hate and fear – fear and hate. Our country has always taken pride in being a melting pot. Throughout our history we have brought in, by force or not, other races; often to do the work that the established population did not want to do. That seems like a recipe for creating a white minority country.

    As for video games that have white people as victims, there are just as many or more that have minorities as victims. And in the real world our history has shown that minorities have been preyed upon at times by the majority and generally minorities have suffered more under the law.

    Where does it say that America is to be a white majority country?

    • Vigilant

      billy boy wasn’t talking about video games, Sarvis.

      Read it again (and furnish a comment if you will).

      • Doc Sarvis

        Okay then. But I stand by the statement in my next sentence in that paragraph; ” And in the real world our history has shown that minorities have been preyed upon at times by the majority and generally minorities have suffered more under the law.”

        • Vigilant

          Until the latter half of the twentieth century.

          Given the proliferation of highly discriminatory “affirmative action” programs and government reluctance to prosecute black on white crime (e.g., NBP and other voter intimidations), plus the passage of unconstitutional “hate crimes” legislation, I’d say the minority has been furnished the wherewithal to prey on the majority.

          Let’s also look at a true case of minorities “suffer[ing] more under the law.” I speak of the Democrats and other progressives seeking to keep blacks in chains through creating and perpetuating dependence upon government via social welfare programs.

          Wake up, Sarvis.

            Well stated.

    • jimbo124816

      Just look at the new sport that Black teenagers have thought up. The game is called “Knockout”. You play it by gathering your group together, sneaking up on a White man and seeing if you can knock him unconscious with one punch. If he doesn’t go down, then you and your friends get to beat him to death. This doesn’t have to be in a dark alley, they do it in a Mall, on the street, in a movie theater, or anywhere they want to.

      They also will go into a Mall and target a store to rob, go in as a mob, and take anything they want, while the store employees have to just stand there and watch. These thugs don’t even bother to hide their faces, because nothing is done to catch them.

      The government and the press neglect to tell you that they are Black thugs for fear of offending someone. They call them teens, or unemployed, or youths, or disenchanted people.

      Get used to it because unless we get some guts, it will continue.

        Have any backup info/link to info about this? I live in SC near Charlotte, and have not heard of this kind of thing going on; and Charlotte is a place where it would be happening, if it is. Actually, crime is down in Charlotte.

            Black on white crime has been on the increase in cities including Virginia Beach, Indianapolis, and the Pittsburgh, PA. suburbs, but MSM will not talk about it. All you have to do Karolyn, is google “Black on White Crime” and read the articles in the local papers.

          • Karolyn

            Why would I want to? How do you know it’s any different than it has been? There’s nothing new under the sun. Why perpetuate it by giving it any importance? What you give the most attention to grows.

          • Don 2

            Sorry Karolyn, “I thought you were interested in learning about something that you had just previously stated that you had not heard of going on.”

            Pardon my ignorance, but how does one perpetuate “black on white crime” simply by reading already published news articles about past crimes on-line?

            Pardon my ignorance again, but how will “black on white crime” stop growing if you don’t pay any attention to it?

            I would recommend that you google “40,000 blacks riot in Virginia Beach” though because it happened this spring, 150 were arrested, people were hurt, there is actual video available, and it is getting pretty close to home for you.

    • Roy Dahlin

      This country has always been a melting pot, but special interests like La Raza and LULAC would rather have something more akin to Jim Crow: separate media, bilingual signs, and enclosed communities parallel to mainstream American “gringo” society.
      It’s flat-out insulting to Americans by claiming “they don’t want to work” as they are being put out of business by illegal alien labor because they either refuse to break the law by hiring illegals themselves or work below legal minimum wage. This country was founded on the principles of honest work and self-reliance. Anyone will do that work if you pay them a decent, liveable wage. It’s absolutely disgusting trying to justify illegal alien labor that will work below legal minimum wage by saying “they do the jobs the fat lazy stupid Americans don’t want.”

  • Ben

    Unfortunately minority racist behavior happens often. I have two daughters, both blue eyed blondes who experienced physical assaults by minorities while in high school in California. We chose to move to a more “white” state and never had these attacks again. I recommend whites have more children and stop wasting time and energy on dogs, cats, pets, etc, and stupid toys like bigger boats, pickup trucks and endless sports TV shows. Make yourself a larger family. God will bless you with greater happiness.

            Speaking of believers:
            JOHN 1:12 But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name.

            Speaking of people who reject God:
            JOHN 8:44 Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him.

            Believe in God and you are a Child of God.

            Don’t believe and you are a child of the devil.

    One only needs to look at South Africa today. The ruling “Whites” were forced to turn over their country to the “Blacks” by the uproar about Apartheid. Today, if a Black South African wants your 200 acre farm, he gets some of his friends together, and they drive over to your house to let you know that the shooting starts in an hour, and you had best be on your way out of there, taking with you only what your car can carry. The Black Sheriff from the town with a Black Mayor assures you that help is on the way and should be there within a week.

    Now look forward about 40 years to the USA and substitute “Black” with “Hispanic” and “Muslim” or a combination of the two.

    You will be forced to speak in Spanish and to obey Sharia Law. So enjoy that new Mercedes and the house on a lake that you got instead of having another child.

    • chocopot

      Relative to South Africa, you forgot to mention two things. First, the crime rate, and murder in particular, is now several multiples of what it was when the whites were in charge. Second, what was once the most vibrant and advanced economy on the entire African continent is now an economic basket case, just like every other black-run country on this earth (check that out for yourself if you do not believe me).
      That is what Obama and his handlers want for us in the U.S.

      • jimbo124816

        I ran out of time.

        I have a friend whose family has lived in South Africa for 5 generations, has a French name, and is of Dutch descent. He still lives there but is making plans to leave because of the skyrocketing increase in the crime rate, particularly black on white crimes.
        He lost his job 20+ years ago because he worked for an American company that was forced to divest and move out of SA. I doubt he would be coming to the US because his children 20 years from now, will have to go through the same persecution he did.
        We are running out of places to go to get our freedoms back.

        • chocopot

          Very sad, but true.

    • Karolyn

      Do you blame the blacks the way they were treated all those years by the white in SA? I’d like to see you behave differently. What someone is born into is what they know.

      • jimbo124816

        I don’t blame anyone. I only say what I see.

        South Africa was spending millions of dollars a year on schools to bring the Black Africans into the 20th century. They actually spent more on the Black schools than the White schools. They taught them how to interact in business. People forget that they were natives from the interior of Africa. The plan was to bring them up to speed before giving them the vote, but they didn’t want to wait, and the mistake was giving the plan a name, Apartheid. Then other countries got involved to give them their “freedom” and with that freedom came the right to destroy their own country, which they seem to be very good at.

        When the US got its independence from England, they didn’t proceed to kill all the British citizens, steal their stuff, and ruin their own country? No, they built it up, formed a wonderful government of order, and continue to this day improving it. SA is being destroyed from within.

        My friend in SA showed me some pictures from 30 years ago of his son’s birthday party. There were White children and Black children sitting together around a table having cake together smiling and all having a good time. Then we would see pictures in the press of riots.

      Hispanic isn’t a race. If anything, White Hispanics in this country are more like the Boers. They were treated as second-class citizens for generations, and just when they were starting to get somewhere, La Raza and their “bronze race” propaganda moves in and takes all the credit.

      Hispanic does not mean brown, and it does not mean non-English speaking, and it does not mean illegal alien. If you’re going to complain about the left, stop mindlessly feeding into their lies. The way you’re carrying on, you sound more like the British imperialist rather than the resilient Boer.

      • jimbo124816

        Did I say that Hispanic is a race? NO!

        The biggest threat to this country is illegal immigration from Mexico and Central and South America. Many people from those areas are “White” or “Black” or a mixture.

        It’s not Race as you like to charge, it’s illegal immigrants who could easily be European, Asian, African, Middle Eastern, etc.

        You are calling me a British Imperialist or a Boer. You racist.

    I was not aware that Hispanics are non-white. Other than those of mixed-race, Hispanics are white. Aren’t Asians white also? Your headline is wrong. Maybe the term for “white” should be “people of European descent?”

    • Roy Dahlin

      This story is complete nonsense because Hispanic isn’t a race. Whites will still be the majority well into mid-century. I’m dumbfounded how anyone here can trust the Associated Press when they banned “illegal alien” for political reasons. The liberal media with their “cultural understanding” are either too ignorant to understand that Hispanic is not a race, or they lie on purpose just to claim that there is another “colored minority” being oppressed. If the former is true, then they are incompetent idiots, and if the latter is true, then they are conniving, hateful hypocrites who don’t care how many lives they ruin as long as they get their cheap votes and cheap labor. Either way, they are not to be trusted.

      Spanish-speaking heritage is not a race. This obsession with lumping it all into a single demographic and then giving it a brown face needs to stop.

  • CarlyBGood

    I was disappointed in President Obama when he racially injected himself into the Trayvon Martin case. It was wrong for him as President to rush to judgment and convict George Zimmerman in the court of public opinion. It was also wrong for our President to rush to judgment and publicly accuse the hispanic and white police of Cambridge of racism when they were just answering a burglar call. The police had a right to ask the man standing at the door trying to get in, who he was, and why was he there. They didn’t know that man but President Obama labeled the two police officers racist. And then when he realized that he showed his true racist colors, he invited them to the White House for a photo op to drink a beer with him. President Obama is always rushing to judgment when it comes to racial issues. Like the evil black slave traders of old knew, “You can control people when you play on their fears”. in the last election, .he even told voters to go out and vote, “Vote for revenge” he shouted out to a predominately black audience. Revenge? Revenge for what? Control and manipulation…classic slavery techniques!

    President Obama certainly had no trouble rushing to judgment to label the man that created the Anti-Islamic video a “hateful racist” and sent a Swat team of 6 to publicly drag the man out of his house at night, arrest him and jail him for pointing out details about Islam. Now we know that the man/video had nothing to do with the terrorist attack on Benghazi…but hey the Muslims are happy to see Obama label/punish anyone questioning Islam a “hateful racist” and Islamaphobic. That is the plan……frighten people into silence, or else face the wrath of King Obama.

    But President Obama has never once rushed to judgment when it comes to labeling an attack on our country caused by radical Islamic terrorists….”we don’t want to rush to judgment” ……the murder of our soldiers at Fort Hood was not caused by an terrorist extremist shouting “Allah is great!” but was very quickly labeled “workplace violence”…almost a full day passed before we heard anything from President Obama…….as of yesterday, no one from the White House can tell us who is heading up the investigation in Benghazi that happened last September 2012….”don’t rush to judgment on this”….no arrests have been made and the crime scene was ransacked by the Press looking for some (ANY) answers…..the IRS investigation into IRS Intimigate targeting/punishing groups that want to cut spending and reduce our debt ….”we are investigating and don’t want to rush to judgment” …..under oath Tuesday no one could give one name who was investigating the IRS scandal……no one can explain why the IRS chief visited the President 116 times in the last year….hmmmm….the National Security scandal leak that showed the scary, invasive collection of America’s private phone records, web search/meta data mining is a clear sign of President Obama’s careless disregard for the rule of law and a frightening glimpse of his dictatorial arrogance….anybody pointing out facts is labeled a racist…if oppose him on ANYTHING…you are labeled a hateful racist……say what???

    A person would HAVE to be deaf, dumb and blind not to see President Obama’s “JUST US JUSTICE”….me three and more…..

    Obama has set back race relations in this county by at least 50 years….



    Now Germany is publicly saying that Obama is worse than Hitler when it comes to protecting civil rights, and Communist Russia (yes Russia) is publicly chastising Obama for abuse of power and violating the privacy rights of Americans…you can’t make this crap up!

    The country is falling apart economically…..people are at each other’s throats…..my groceries cost me 35% more than 3 yrs ago…….gas that cost me $1.80 gal. five years ago, now costs me almost $4 for the same gallon…the number of people on welfare is three times higher than when he took office and growing every day…..though I am healthy with zero claims for six years my health ins. is 40% higher than a year ago,…..more debt created under his watch than all previous Presidents combined…..but hey….don’t bother us with this partisan motivated problems (say what?) ……”we are busy planning Michelle Obama’s 50th birthday party…..it has to be a lavish bash you know…..it’s gonna be such FUN.” The Obama’s tax return showed almost $7 million in income last year…that’s up from the $340K they were making when they took office….so have yourself a jolly good time!

    Our people are broken, scared, and in worse shape economically since the Great Depression…

    This is OK if the minorities have good Judeo-Christian values. Good work ethic, commit few crimes, low drug and alcohol usage, low gambling level, wait until marriage for sex, etc. Whites need more of this also.

    So, pretty much, minorities, especially black people, have become no better than white people; they’ve become their own worst enemy.

Stop living up to shallow racial stereotypes, and we won’t think ill of you in this manner. THIS coming from ME–a Puerto Rican!

  • ChuckS123

    I have a wild theory, maybe rooted in reality, maybe in thin air. Maybe black kids are taught the white world is very racist, against them. By their often very bad liberal schools and some black leaders. Also the media. Maybe some of them have a bad attitude when they encounter white people, and the whites react to the bad attitude. Then the black may see this as racist, making his attitude worse. I think they’re also told that anyone who isn’t pushing for more welfare and affirmative action is racist.
