5. ...
"Hispanics now comprise 23% of children, up from 12% in 1990, while whites now comprise just 53% of youth, down from nearly 70% in 1990...Not surprisingly, most of the states that experienced growth in populations of minority children are the ones where white children are in the minority: California, Nevada, New Mexico, Arizona, Texas, Florida, Georgia, Hawaii, Mississippi and Maryland."

27. That is why I did not give my daughters a choice
on the language they will study. I just wish our school system had been teaching Spanish from 1st grade on. At some point that needs to be a conversation that happens. The next conversation would be some sort of EU style organization for North America.

I wish I had stayed with my Spanish studies, but I was never very good at it.

7. this delights me
I remember back in the 70's a prediction (I think in Life Magazine) of "a day in the not too distant future" when White's would no longer be in the majority... people were scared

25. This fear of whites becoming the minority has been around for decades.
F. Scott Fitzgerald even cited it in The Great Gatsby. Tom Buchanon raved on about it to Nick Caraway after his polo game. He saw it as a real threat to the white race.

12. I used to have an account there. I started it the same day
I got an account here and for the same reason. It was a PolySci assignment. But I am bi-racial. Black Dad (ret Green Beret) and white German mother. I think the entire article is stupid. There is no race race. Actually, I don't identify with a race. I am me!!!

In one month, I will take a walk and get my ScD hood. I will not be Doctor Black or Doctor White. I did not use any advantage to get through school other than an occassional stimulant. I am sick of the entire issue. I came into this world cold and naked and landed on the same starting line and everyone else. I just ran harder.
Suck me!

14. Your right. The word "race" is meaningless.
It is purely a social construct with nothing biological about it. The sooner we get away from this idea of race, the better.

13. Well.
I guess that means more laws must be invented to insure that those non whites will have a criminal record. Can't have all those non white folks voting.

20. Only ten states?
I would've guessed a few more if I had to venture a quick guess. I know my state of California is one of them and has been for a long time. It's only a matter of time before half the states are this way, and indeed the country as a whole is this way.

21. And we are concerned about this?
Not you OP, but the people of this country who brag about being the place that all the "poor huddled masses" long to live in. We used to, or at least pretended to welcome all and respond with joy at our diversity.

32. And we come to the REAL REASON why the teapigs want to slash social programs.
Did we ever doubt the racism at their core?

36. Good.
Perhaps white people should have treated minorities better all along. Then they wouldn't have to shit their pants when the inevitable happens.
