There was a topic recently closed in the Illegal Immigration forum (for not being an illegal immigration topic) that has some interesting premises put forward throughout the thread. I want to know how others understand the data on 2010/2011 births in the United States, and what the percentages the different broad ethnic categories had. Sources are appreciated.

It'd be interesting to see figures from 30 years ago. How quickly they've overtaken the blacks which used to be the 2nd highest group.

Hispanic poverty is also fast growing. Press one for Espanol, press two for English.

Well then Hispanics have no need to continue to brag that they will be the majority shortly, will they? Yet you hear that from them all the time.

We're talking about births...

The source I quoted goes back to 1990, and shows that "Hispanic (of all racial groups)" births have outnumbered "Non-Hispanic black" births since 1993...

4 million births in one year? sounds low to me.

I wonder when the number of white births first exceeded those of Native Americans.

But it is an interesting contrast to some odd numbers we saw on the Illegal Immigration forum....
