IMHO, not really. The Asian graph shows immigration mostly from China and India of college students who then stay and based on skills get jobs in the US.


The Hispanic chart shows the vast increase of illegal immigrant couples arriving with lots of children in the hope of getting better US education and welfare payments tied to family size.



Black graph shows the appalling health conditions and larger number of children encouraged by welfare payments tied to family size.


White graph shows the economic pressures on middle class people. Welcome to who voted for Trump in 2016 in one single line graph.

Seems impossible on the face. Check the chart.....

https://www.washingtonpost.com/polit...=.fa0f3e6890c1

As the article says, it also represents why we have "minority rule" to a degree because older Americans turn out to vote more often.

Another interesting chart there shows that white Americans were almost evenly split (D/R) at only two times in recent years - first during part of the Clinton POTUS and then after the Failed GWB Economy (2008/2009), but as the same chart shows they quickly go back to MaMa R.

Lots of interesting info in that article....no personal opinion here, just looking at data for what it is.

Aren't you the lucky one. (That's not a question.) But this is:

When the hell are the usual suspects going to stop posting links to sites with paywalls?

If you’re looking for a good breakdown as to where demographic change is leading to, check out a book called “Doversity Explosion” by William H. Frey, Chief Demographer for the Brookings Institute.

https://smile.amazon.com/Diversity-E...s%2C143&sr=8-1

In the future there are going to be states that attract newcomers primarily from other states (The New Sunbelt) and state that primarily attract newcomers from immigration (The Melting Pot) but there will be vast areas in New England and the Midwest (The Heartland) that will rapidly age and face labor shortages because they can’t attract workers.

There is a joke in that book title somewhere. Just can't point to it.

At one time you libs were all about ZPG. Now you all have done a 180 and are encouraging who don't have the resources to go ahead and bring children into the world. Why would anyone cheer on such irresponsible people when it comes to reproduction?
By those standards people should not have had children back when the era was the wild, wild, west. Life expectancy if the child lived passed the bullet ... 30 - 40 years of age. How irresponsible of them not to understand the damage they were doing to that poor child, having to grow up in that environment.

It's real easy to misunderstand numbers when you don't want to understand them.

I think we all understand the bigger picture here in 2019. Age is racist.

It is no coincidence that the “browning” of the USA is happening at the same time as the “dumbing down”. We keep falling further behind as we continue to kill the goose that lays the golden eggs

Numbers don’t lie

We are watching the fall of the American Empire. It's a slow fall that is only being accelerated now. The change in the demographics mean we are going towards socialism. The only question is how long until that happens. I would say that the vast majority of our governmental programs will resemble socialism within a decade. Two decades at most.

So many here crying about the changes in the country and blaming minorities because of numbers. Let's not ignore who controls every facet of American life since the inception of the United States. If white people don't like the policies of America then blame yourselves. White Baby boomer still control most of the government with a few Gen X, remember Republicans barely have minorities officials so I have no idea why they are complaining. I single out Republican because you control most governorships, state and local government positions. And have had complete federal control on many occasions, what are you doing with it?

The White Baby Boomer resume left undone
-The middle class decline
-loss of jobs overseas
-rising healthcare cost
-Politicians that rater argue than pass policy
-Worsening corporate influence and control of government.
-Infrastructure crumbling
-Mounds of debt
-Multple unnecessary wars
-No Healthcare plan, the black president at least had a plan and actually passed something. Might not like it but that is still more than any Baby Boomer was able to do.

Seems white folk could use some minority help to solve the problems white politicians have left for the future generations of America.
