    WASHINGTON — After years of speculation, estimates and projections, the Census Bureau has made it official: White births are no longer a majority in the United States.

    Non-Hispanic whites accounted for 49.6 percent of all births in the 12-month period that ended last July, according to Census Bureau data made public on Thursday, while minorities — including Hispanics, blacks, Asians and those of mixed race — reached 50.4 percent, representing a majority for the first time in the country’s history.

    "As the saying goes...Only The Strong Will Survive!" :lol:

    Census: Minorities now surpass whites in US births | General Headlines | Comcast

    For the first time, racial and ethnic minorities make up more than half the children born in the U.S., capping decades of heady immigration growth that is now slowing.

    New 2011 census estimates highlight sweeping changes in the nation's racial makeup and the prolonged impact of a weak economy, which is now resulting in fewer Hispanics entering the U.S.Minorities increased 1.9 percent to 114.1 million.

    How about capping decades of abortion?

    From the article:

    "According to the latest data, the percentage growth of Hispanics slowed from 4.2 percent in 2001 to 2.5percent last year. Their population growth would have been even lower if it weren't for their relatively high fertility rates &#8212; seven births for every death. The median age of U.S. Hispanics is 27.6 years."

    Geez, the Hispanics are popping them out like ping pong balls. High fertility and low abortion rate equals lots of habla.

    Hispanics tend to have very large families and don't care if they can afford them or not, they will get on assistance and live foot to mouth if they have to.

    I guess the conservative campaign for fewer abortions and less birth control is producing some positive results.
