Look Out! The Minorities are Coming!

From the New York Times: In a Generation, Minorities May be the US Majority:

“The census calculates that by 2042, Americans who identify themselves as Hispanic, black, Asian, American Indian, Native Hawaiian and Pacific Islander will together outnumber non-Hispanic whites. Four years ago, officials had projected the shift would come in 2050.

The main reason for the accelerating change is significantly higher birthrates among immigrants. Another factor is the influx of foreigners, rising from about 1.3 million annually today to more than 2 million a year by midcentury, according to projections based on current immigration policies. “

Oh boy, I can already hear the chorus of alarmism and xenophobia ready to break out: I only wish that I had a TV in my apartment so I can watch Lou Dobbs go purple in the face about the threat to national identity.

I can only hope that we will not have a repeat of what is currently happening in Europe, with all this alarmist-sounding rhetoric about higher immigrant birthrates, and how minorities will destroy “America as we know it.”
