Where in America (or elsewhere) should we live, or what should such people do.

me and my dog Fido are a little worried about white people becoming the minority. Some have accused me of raising a bigoted but isn't that a harsh accusation?


Also, is there anything logical about wanting a community to stay predominately white (such as, not wanting it to drop below 80% white). Its logical to prefer vanilla ice cream over chocolate if that's what you prefer, because your taste buds make you prefer it.
So , is it just as logical or necessary when it comes to race.

How exactly does one "oppose" a demographic trend? Does one take a vote?

I sort of lost it when I reread that your dog Fido was worried.

Try anywhere in Wyoming, Marin County CA, or Pittsburgh PA. None of which appeal to me as place to live. Marin is nice, but it's also about the most expensive county in the U.S. and the people there let you know that. You will eventually have to give up and adapt, the trend is not going to slow down.

If that trend is real then you as one individual moving away wouldn't do anything to change that trend.

As for seeking an area predominately white, try most rural areas and most suburbs. There are too many to list, find an area that interests you and go to their forum to see if a certain area would suit you. This link is a good tool as well;
Mapping America ? Census Bureau 2005-9 American Community Survey - NYTimes.com

Good luck with your "quest"

Wyoming is 85.9% white and in the 2000s saw a 10.3% increase in the white population. This is lower than the overall population increase of 14.1%, but not too much lower. Utah's white population increased by 16.7% while the state's overall population grew by by 23.8% in the decade. Utah is 80.4% white. Hawaii is one of the only state's where white population growth is about the same as overall population growth. The white-population of Hawaii grew by 11.6% while the overall population grew by 12.3%. Although Hawaii is a white-minority state.

Interactive map: 30 years of census data - The Washington Post

Going by county in McPherson County, Nebraska the white population appears to have increased, slightly, in the 2000s while other groups stayed stable or declined. McPherson is listed by that source as 98% white. Of course the whole county has around 540 people and it looks to have no incorporated communities. For a larger county Franklin County, New York had a white population that grew slightly in that decade. Not as fast as its Asian population, but other populations declined. Franklin County was listed by that source as being 82.6% white and just .4% Asian. Lincoln County, South Dakota looked to have a white population growth nearly equal to its overall growth rate and was listed as 95.3% white.
