    The Majority of American Babies Are Now Minorities

    'Racial and ethnic minorities now surpass non-Hispanic whites as the largest group of American children under 5 years old, the Census Bureau said Thursday.

    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.

    Apparently you're a racist just for saying "melting pot"

    What if hispanic whites are factored in?

    My dad's brown, my mom's white, I came out looking white as hell. Am I a minority even though I'm white (hispanic-white)?

    I enjoy increased cultural diversity. The different foods, music and customs really spice life up.

    But increased diversity is a double edged sword. As diversity increases more and more people of different cultures and ethnicities will have children together and over the generations of this we will all be blended into something more uniform. That is, of course, what a melting pot does. There are advantages and disadvantages to that.

    True uniformity would eliminate racism entirely so there is that. However, I seriously doubt we would ever, as a nation, that we would ever reach true uniformity.

    I'm all for diversity. The means by which this particular shift is taking place, however, are troubling.

    Speaking plainly here, whites simply aren't breeding. Our fertility rate is about as low as that found in most of Western Europe, and only barely above that of Japan. As such, our population, and therefore total stake in and influence over mainstream American culture and society, is declining. If that trend continues, we might very well wind up not with a "melting pot," but a culturally, politically, and socially marginalized white minority which has basically had its own nation hijacked out from under it by foreign influences.

    It's happened before. Just look at what happened to Lebanese Christians over the course of the 20th Century, for example.

    It used to be that first-generation immigrants would cling to their roots, while second-generation tried to forget it, and third generation tried to remember it.

    Today, more and more immigrant generations refuse to melt with the rest.

    Perhaps you'll be able to look forward to affirmative action programs in the future.
