Skip to comments.Non-whites to make up nearly 60 percent of U.S. by 2060: Census
Posted on 12/13/2012 6:43:44 AM PST by dennisw
The shift will largely be fueled by minority births that continue to outpace those of whites, the agency said, based on data from the 2010 Census.
Nearly one in three U.S. residents will be Hispanic by 2060, up from one in six now, it said. The Asian population is also expected to more than double over the next five decades.
"The U.S. will become a plurality nation, where the non-Hispanic white population remains the largest single group, but no group is in the majority," Thomas Mesenbourg, the agency's acting director, said in a statement.
The United States has been on a steady path to greater racial diversity, and experts have predicted for years that minorities would be the "majority" before 2050. The Census Bureau on Wednesday projected that would happen in 2043.
Such a shift may take decades, but the expected changes are already reshaping politics, public policy, the economy and consumer spending.
The looming changes are especially evident as the country grapples with controversial issues from immigration and gay marriage to Medicare reform and social safety net programs in the wake of the recent presidential election.
Last month, U.S. President Barack Obama won a second term with overwhelming support from Latinos, blacks and younger voters. Gay marriage - now before the nation's top court - has been legalized in several states, which experts say shows growing acceptance among younger Americans.
Companies and advertisers have adapted strategies amid changing U.S. demographics by targeting more shopping malls aimed at Hispanic shoppers.
Although the white population has already declined in several states like California and Texas, the report underscores the trend nationwide, said Steve Murdock, former Census director and a sociologist at Rice University.
"This is increasingly a pervasive diversification ... It's not a few areas," he said.

Why not just drop the whole white, black, yellow, brown, red, hispanic, asian, caucasian thing all together and just be male or female humans?
Margaret Sanger’s unintended consequences.
Women have contradictory makeups. One of these facets can be a subliminal hatred for white men even though married to one. So they cheer for those who would depose white men from their top position. More especially women who are working and some see white men as their rivals at work. So they vote for Barak Obama to get to us.
Women have submitted to conquerors (real and would be) since time began. A good example would be the many examples of French women under German occupation. Or the women in Europe who convert to Islam after marrying a Muslim.
American will eventually resemble Detroit sad to say.
I feel pretty much the same way. My country is being dismantled under my feet. There’s nothing I can do about it, and I see no one in public life with the ability to stop it.
At my age, I have no entrepreneurial or career ambitions. I will be content to live in poverty in Obama housing and get my necessities at an Obama store. I have a couple of hobbies.
OTOH: What I actually expect to happen is much, much worse. I.e., hyperinflation and random ObamaViolence against whites—Zimbabwe—rather than a gray, drab existence in the style of Communist Poland.
Some of these men go into homes and mislead weak-minded women who are burdened with sins and led by all kinds of desires.
2 Timothy 3:6
You gain the confidence (political or otherwise) of women through blatant emotional appeals... and the men follow along. Advertisers know this as well.
Been this way since Eve was seduced by Satan to take the apple... and Adam then went right along after her urging.
You have hit the proverbial “nail” squarely and precisely on the head. Being “anglo”, if I were a young person, say, in my 20’s, I’d be desperately looking for a way out to less hate filled location.
Plus it is getting where most immigrants (90% of immigration is from the 3rd world) can apply for affirmative action preferences in college and jobs etc and get the slot ahead of the native born white applicant with a family history in America of generations and hundreds of years
Hispanic immigrants can be white as snow and get in on the American affirmative action scam, So can Africans we get a ton of African immigrants and refugees these days. Asians are mixed. Some can get AA some cannot
To carry on, aside from the MBDA, minorities also have the SBA and its various programs like the 8(a) Business Development in which the SBA boasts that Under the Small Business Act, certain individuals are presumed socially disadvantaged: African-Americans, Hispanic Americans, Asian Pacific Americans, Native Americans (American Indians, Eskimos, Aleuts, or Native Hawaiians), and Subcontinent Asian Americans. An individual who is not a member of one of the groups listed can be admitted to the program if he/she shows through a preponderance of the evidence that he/she is socially disadvantaged. For instance, an individual may show social disadvantage due to race, ethnic origin, gender, physical handicap, long-term residence in an environment isolated from the mainstream of American society; or other similar causes. 
What do you mean drop? Should we drop "height" and just all be "medium"? Height is just a fact about people. For some things it's completely unimportant, for some other things it's very important. But either way it just *is*.
Despite the "social construct" people race is a real thing too. There are all sorts of things you can tell by people's race - whether they are susceptible to this disease or that disease, what there life expectancy is, how likely they are to go to jail. Sure, all statistical generalizations.
Culturally, it's an even more important marker, though. Meet a black man today and there is a 19 in 20 chance that he voted for Obama.
I think the longing for race to be invisible is a white pathology, based on misplaced white guilt. Blacks don't want race to go away. Go watch the Jamie Foxx video: blacks are (and again there is an exception to prove the rule out there) thrilled to be black, revel in their race.
All the Chinese I know are happy they are Chinese, and think the Chinese are the best race, the biggest race, the oldest race, the greatest of the Asian races, etc.
Whites used to think that way too. But now our kids are fed Sesame Street and "we're all equal" as little kids, and then Howard Zinn - the evil white oppressor, the history of Bad Things White People Did all through elementary and high schools, and so by they time they are 20 they either wish they were some other race (sometimes going so far as pretending that they are Indians like the Lady Senator from Massachusetts) or just wish that the "race would all go away".
Race isn't going away anymore than height - though the white race is certainly declining, and as so many of our markers are recessive the fashion for intermixing is certainly harder on whites than other races.
BTW: If we followed your thought, why should we have male and female - everyone should just be genderless. We should all identify as androgynous / transgender, eh?
My preference isn't for race to go away, it's for Whites to get a renewed sense of pride and racial solidarity, just like all the other races. Why no "white caucus" in the House? The black caucus is not going anywhere, that's for sure. Right now we alone, as a race, are unilaterally disarmed, and we are pushed around just like every other unarmed group in history. Not good. Time to arm up, man up and stand up!
Maybe after enough time here on earth, people will all be just one color and either male or female.
How do you think people are distinguished in heaven?
“The displacement and dispossession of Whites in the USA is not accidental, its a result of policy and politics. The result will not be Whites being one minority among many, and a big happy Rainbow Nation. The result will be Whites as a hated minority in our own nation. Something like the way Whites are treated in South Africa today.”
I was about to post something similar, but you beat me to it.
From North America to South Africa — a consequence of our own doing.
I sense that by then, a growing number of Euro-Americans will be leaving America for those places where they will make their “last stands” — places like Australia, New Zealand, and Canada. Perhaps by then Alaska may break off and become an independent nation, or in some kind of alliance with the western provinces of Canada.
“The vast majority of “Hispanics” in the USA are mestizo, not European. That is European-AmerIndian admixture. An increasing percentage of immigrants from Mexico and Central America are almost pure AmerIndian, many don’t even speak Spanish.
The term “Latino” seems more broadly descriptive.”
In some ways, it’s almost as if we were watching evolution in action (and not in slow-motion, either).
We are literally seeing the emergence of a new “sub-race” of people, who have similar physical characteristics, and (most importantly) who regard -themselves- as being a separate and distinctive “racial group” — hence, “La Raza”.
Most do not consider themselves to be “gringos” or “Anglos”. They consider themselves to be -something else-. Thus, “Hispanics” or “Latinos”. Not Indian, not black, not white. Their own, and new, group.
The “European-AmerIndian admixture” simply didn’t exist prior to the arrival of Europeans to the New World. Yet this -new- ethnic/racial group clearly exists today. It has literally “sprung up by itself” within the time frame of, say, 550 years. A drop of water in the “evolutionary ocean”, and all the more remarkable for having emerged in so short a time frame.
Unfortunately, these same young people largely support the politics that produced this brave new world. As Ronald Reagan famously said, freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction.
Future black/hispanic race wars will be epic. I’m glad I won’t live to see them.
Thanks Ted Kennedy. My favorite is how you assured everyone that the composition of Americans would not change due to the 1965 immigration act.
I see no problem with that as long as they adhere to American cultural values and traditions.
Is there any doubt anymore whatsoever among you that the USA was overrun by Communists after WWII foising the “Great Society” on us.
1964 Civil Rights Act
1965 Immigration Act - divide and conquer
1965 Social Security Act, (SS, Medicare) - dependency
1965 Affirmative Action - dependency
1966 Child Nutrition Act - dependency
1967 Public Broadcasting Act - propaganda arm
1968 Gun Control Act - disram the people
1968 Fair Housing Act - dependency
1969 National Environmental Policy Act - control
Coincidence? The Communists implemented the entire foundation for our downfall in the 1960s and it didn’t take long to bear fruit.
1973 Roe v. Wade
And the die was cast. National downfall assured in 100 years or less. We are 50 years on from the Great Society and our down fall is baked into the cake. It is just a question of how long it takes until the US gulags begin filling.
California is fast heading that way.
I have long felt like I am in a lifeboat with idiots shooting holes in the bottom of the boat, and for the life of me I can’t get them to stop it. We are all in the same boat and I am stuck with the consequences of their actions, shooting holes in the boat as the water rushes in. I’m bailing and screaming “stop shooting the boat” while they blast away with glee, completely ignorant why the boat is filling with water and what they are doing to cause it.
Yes, I feel helpless, hopeless and powerless. We are all only in God’s hands now. Man is our enemy. At this point,there is nothing to do but pray to God and apologize to your children for failing to preserve liberty.
