The United States is becoming a far more diverse nation, led by surging growth among those of Asian and Hispanic descent, while stagnating fertility rates slow overall population growth.
A new report from the U.S. Census Bureau shows America's population is 60.1 percent white, the lowest level ever recorded. Among those under 16 years of age, fewer than half are white, a sign that white Americans are having fewer children and doing so later in life.
"The nation is becoming more diverse, especially among the young," said William Frey, a demographer at the Brookings Institution.
But the number of Americans under the age of 25 actually fell over the last decade, driven entirely by lower fertility rates among whites. There are 4.7 million fewer white Americans under the age of 25 today than there were in 2010, and 3.1 million more minorities under the age of 25 than there were nine years ago an overall decline of almost 1.6 million.
The only age group in which whites are growing as a share of the population is among seniors as the baby boom generation ages into retirement.
The number of senior citizens in America, those over the age of 65, has grown by more than a third since 2010, the Census Bureau said. The median age of an American has grown by more than a full year, to 38.4 years old, over the last decade as people live longer and have fewer children.

For your interest.
Can’t be Asians. Little dick$.
In 1940 I think hispanics were counted as white... it was later that the Democrats created a grievance group out of them.
immigration moratorium NOW.
So it is all the incels fault.
immigration moratorium NOW.
Decades too late. That horse left the barn around 2000.
Culturally and economically, most of these folks are natural conservatives. But conservatives and whatever the R party thinks it is nowadays... have to reach out and communicate!
Otherwise, these new folks are exposed to the 24/7 commie leftist propaganda barrage and their voting will reflect it
About 65% of “Hispanics” self-identify as “white”.
You think multiculturalism is fun now just wait it gets even funner!
But the country is so much better...
We are so mixed in most areas. They only get these numbers by calling you a minority if you have one drop of blood. It’s nuts.
Because they are.
Hispanic is an ethnicity, not a race.
immigration legal, chain, illegal, and anchor baby tourism, H1B and visas.
In other words we’re balkanizing rapidly.
States with the largest share of their population being non-Hispanic white.
West Virginia: 92%
New Hampshire: 90.5%
it’s never too late to do the right thing.
The Democrat base Is now the dead mail in voters. No more interstate bussing. It is the Cuomo Co Vid death vote.
My wife is Japanese. I’ve instructed my daughters to identify as either asian or mixed if available. they are ornery and will check both white and asian if mixed isn’t on the list. this tends to create certain program issues for things.
Most US ‘asians’ I’ve met tend to be VERY traditional/conservative.
