CNN Story Title: White babies not the majority anymore . . .

http://inamerica.blogs.cnn.com/2012/05/17/census-2011-data-confirm-trend-of-population-diversity/?hpt=hp_t2

Asians remain the fastest-growing minority racial group, with a 3% increase over last year’s population, to 18.2 million. But the fastest-growing ethnic group overall was Hispanics (who can be of any race), expanding by 3.1% since 2010.



This thread at DU: http://www.democraticunderground.com/1014122950 - From NPR/Associated Press . . . Their title? Census: Minorities Surpass Whites In U.S. Births


And while watching MSNBC this morning - they flashed a huge graphic that addressed only Hispanics and black Americans.

More from CNN:
The total minority population grew half a percentage point between 2010 and 2011 to 36.6%, or 114 million people. The census defines "minority" as anyone who does not identify themselves as white (as a single race) and non-Hispanic.

Native Hawaiians and Pacific Islanders had the highest percentage of children younger than 18 in 2011, at 33.9%. Hispanics were a close second, with 33.5% of the population under 18. In third were American Indians/Alaska natives, a group whose children make up 31.6% of its population. Next were blacks, with 29.6%; Asians, with 25.9%; and non-Hispanic whites, at 19.9%.

Across the United States, 23.7% of the total population is under 18.



And yet - they keep telling the same story . . . over and over again. Careful with those comments at CNN - evidently we non-whites are ignorant breeders.

I have learned from experience that for the sake of one's health, it is advisable to steer clear of the comments section on any
Black-related articles or videos on the Internet.
