Whats wrong with the country being less than 50% white?

Right now, the country is about 76% white, so its going to be a long time before its less than 50% anyways. I heard it would be at 2050.

In 1650 a Native American 10 year old boy wrote on the tribal wall of questions: "White man to become a MAJORITY by 1750? Is this possible? PLEASE ANSWER!!!!"

Things change. Who cares if whites become less prominent. Last time I checked it wasn't "I'm ok with diversity so long as whites still come out on top."

We just need to make sure to pass on the AMERICAN SPIRIT no matter who came to this country. Culture an people's mind shape a society. I am not a white. I love America, and its freedom and creative people.

Same here.... I love mixed nationalities, we need more of them. Although im not considered "bi-racial". I am half north african, half american (mixed european) and part native american. There is no such thing as a pure race. Some people need history lessons.

^ yeah, Iceland is about as close as you can get. They've been studying their genetics for years. There's actually a database researching all 300,000 people's blood.

It's most likely that Hispanics will become assimilated into American culture, the same way that other ethnicities have. Of course America will adopt some of their culture, such as food, some words/language, and mix blood. The important thing to remember is that their children, grandchildren, etc. will be American citizens so don't have an "us vs. them" mentality.

Thank you, that is well said.

I agree.

And look on the bright side: one day Caucasians will have their own wing in the Smithsonian.
