1. Another thing for the right wing extremists to freak out over.

2. Pretty much explains everything, doesn't it?

 

These people are scared to death.

4. Cue White Nationalist violence in 3,2,1...

Iím guessing this will be the featured topic on an upcoming Tucker Carlson show in the near future.

5. Yep.

The country also passed two more milestones on its way to becoming a majority-minority society in the coming decades: For the first time, the portion of White people dipped below 60 percent, slipping from 63.7 percent in 2010 to 57.8 percent in 2020. And the under-18 population is now majority people of color, at 52.7 percent.


There it is. That's what is scaring the crap out of some of the white people in this country, especially older white people.

I am middle-aged and white, and it doesn't scare me a bit. Count me as one who so tired of the racist BS. We need diversity. The increasing diversity in the US is a good thing.

6. Given efforts to exclude and undercount, it's probably even lower

Communities of color were targeted with undercounting, etc. Add a pandemic, plus I think I remember the Trump Admin ended the count early
