    Fun fact! 63% of Alabama high school grads go directly to college. That puts it slightly above the US average, and above states like Texas, Delaware and Washington.

    Good that's AWESOME news, diversity is king!!

    It also means we will have less Rednecks, and White Terrorism, I never heard of a Black Man blowing up a building killing 168 people, or a Mexican walking into a church wasting 9 innocent people, because
    he didn't like the color of their skin, or Blowing up Abortion clinics, and of course the Unabomber, etc..

    I'm not making statements about what is or is not typical.

    Nor do I think it's appropriate to refer to a purely hypothetical person as a "bitch" based on some hypothetical characteristics.

    But thanks for simultaneously completely ignoring my post, and proving part of my point. Cheers.

    I think you got my point, you're either being PC or are biased.

    The reversal in 2014 marked a milestone in a trend toward a more diverse U.S. that's projected to continue. Births outnumbered deaths for all ethnic and racial groups last year except for non-Hispanic whites, the new Census data show. A report earlier this year projected that by 2044, today's majority white population will be the minority.'

    Excellent.

    I am as WASP as it gets and I think it will be great for America to truly be a melting pot.

    Well one thing is for sure, when you are focusing on race numbers like a score card you sure as hell aren't a proponent of the melting pot ideal.

    And another thing that's for sure is that those minority babies will grow up to be minority voters.

    Can anyone say 'massive demographic change'?

    b : the population of such a place'

    America is multi-racial now...but it is far from 'cohesive'.

    I think 'whites' no longer being dominant will aid in that cohesiveness.

    I want a nation of mutts (ideally). No 'pure breads'...all 'mixed breeds'. No more 'pure' races - no more racism.


    And, once again, I am 'white' - as 'pure bread' as they come.
