    Looking at population projections for Texas, demographer Steve Murdock concludes: "It's basically over for Anglos."

    Two of every three Texas children are now non-Anglo and the trend line will become even more pronounced in the future, said Murdock, former U.S. Census Bureau director and now director of the Hobby Center for the Study of Texas at Rice University.

    Today's Texas population can be divided into two groups, he said. One is an old and aging Anglo and the other is young and minority. Between 2000 and 2040, the state's public school enrollment will see a 15 percent decline in Anglo children while Hispanic children will make up a 213 percent increase, he said.

    Can one of you liberals name ONE successful latin country? Just one! One country that isn't despot run, thug infested, poverty ridden, heck hole of populace ignorance and dictatorship rule.

    What latin country has done anything but have internal strife, civil wars, disease and national ignorance.

    Just what have they given to the world that lauds them to take it over? If they're so freaking great, why do they violate our laws to come here illegally to live off of the anglos they hate so much?

    Where's the great latin nations? Where are the marvelous latin civilizations? What are they going to do with this country if they take it over by nothing more than sheer numbers? Who is going to support them and their dozen each illegitimate kids?

    He's being honest. The reality is that the white population of America is not reproducing nearly as fast as the other racial demographics, and are not immigrating anywhere close to the same numbers. Whites as a % of population are going to only go down in future decades.

    The politcal map in places like Texas, which has always been a GOP stronghold, is quickly changing. I have seen some of those numbers and it is startling.

    Prior to Reagan, Texas was pure Democrat....

    Harris county voted for Obama in '08, yet in '10 it was Republican....

    Our southern border is being over run and our government not including the governor of Arizona isn't doing enough to stop it.When she tries she runs into opposition from our Attorney Genera and the White House.

    So you'd think, faced with a totally different GALAXY of reality (i.e., being the minority), whites would change their attitude from nonchalance to concern.

    But that would be "racist", so...

    Epitaph for Whites: Here Lies the White Race. They'd Like You To Know They Weren't Racist.

    And the rest just dance on the grave and laugh.

    In the 1950-1980 frame, Republicans won Texas three out of seven times (and two of the Democratic wins featured a ticket with native son LBJ).

    Why should people be concerned? If your existence is centered around your "racial pride", you have a pretty meaningless life.

    Here's the flaw in the so-called demographer's expertise: he is being inconsistent with his categorizations. Relatively speaking, until recently in the short history of the United States, there was a division among white immigrants. Germans, Irish, Russians, Poles and Italians were all seen as separate outsiders who had to "earn" their way into American society. Jews fell in a completely different category because there were German Jews, Russian Jews, Polish Jews and Jews from the various smaller European countries until post World War II when there were Israeli Jews.

    Long before the massive immigration of whites from Europe, there were already Latinos (predominantly Mexican), Asians (predominantly Chinese), Blacks (predominantly African) and the many different tribes of Native Americans. They weren't embraced as part of white American society, but they were accepted as already being part of the American culture. In other words, they were brought here (Chinese and Africans) or they were already here (Mexicans and Native Americans). The "outsiders" who were coming to this country were Germans, Irish, Russians, Poles, Italians and Jews.

    Now all whites are lumped together even though there was a bitter history of rivalry between them. That's the inconsistency, and that's the flaw in the demographer's statement. His argument is disingenuous at best and specious at worst. If he's going to make an accurate statement, then he should categorize it consistently either by religion (Baptists, Catholics, Protestants, Jews, Muslims, etc.) or by national origin (Mexico, Germany, Russia, Africa, Italy, etc.).

    The irony, and historical ignorance, that this so-called expert reveals about himself is that Texas is the original multicultural state. When the Spaniards first came into what is today known as Texas, it was called that because it was a multicultural mix of Native American tribes who referred to themselves as people in their own native tongue and collectively called themselves "Tejas" or "friends."
