From The Daily Herald -

"White people will no longer make up the majority of Americans by 2042, According to a new government projection. That's eight years sooner than previous estimates, made in 2004..."

"...The nation has been growing more diverse for decades, but the process has sped up through immigration and higher birth rates among minority residents, especially Hispanics..."

"...The Census Bereau Thursday released population projections through 2050, based on rates for births, deaths, and immigration. They are subject to big revisions, depending on immigration policy, cultural changes, and natural or man made disasters..."

"...The U.S. has nearly 305 million people today. The population is projected to hit 400 million in 2039 and 439 million in 2050."

Some years ago; I met some English people who were 'Black'----------I still perceived 'em as Brits.

White Americans won't become a minority by 2042 - white non-Hispanic Americans will become a minority by 2042. However, I predict that sometime by the 2040 census the government will begin to group white Hispanics with the majority. In other words, "white" will replace "white non-Hispanic" as the descriptive term of this country's majority. I highly doubt the US's population will be any less than 60-65% white by before 2042.

If you go down to Mexico City the first thing you will notice is the media only shows White People on News Shows and ads. But most people that you see on the street are very dark skinned Indians. They have as little in common with the elite Hispanic (Spanish) than our Whites have with a dark skinned gang member who follows the BET Stereotype.

Mexican Indians may be good people but they should not be called white in the census.
