Don't worry. If any of them grow up to shoot someone, we'll still call them white.

So what are we gonna call white people when white people are no longer the majority race? Plurality?

And eventually, the US will be mostly Hispanic, so will white people ever be called a "minority", or are people just going to blindly apply the "minority" label to everyone who isn't descended from European bloodlines?

Will the US end up looking like South Africa (or as I imagine the cultures depicted in Doctor Who look like) where white people are about 20% of the population and own 90% of the wealth?

Or we can finally just get to "people" and denigrate them by class instead of race.

I imagine the optimal model would be that intermixing between ethnic groups will continue to rise. We'll reach a point in another generation or two where even census data by ethnic group will be fairly useless.

Since Hispanics are not necessarily pure-blood Indian, they, too, are descended from a European bloodline.

Seriously, assimilation is an American specialty. Yes we're racist farks, as are most people, but give us a couple of generations and we're celebrating St. Patrick's Day or the Year of the Dragon with those dirty Micks and those sneaky Chinee.

This data vindicates Ms. Jodie Brunstetter's advocacy of prohibiting legal recognition of same-sex unions. I encourage individuals to write to Ms. Brunstetter and to thank her for her work; I would further encourage North Carolina Farkers to consider erection of a billboard in a well-trafficked location that reads "Thank You, Peter Brunstetter, for Protecting the Caucasian Race".

That will take awhile. And Hispanic is an odd term. If you blend it long enough, it just turns into Southern European, and you get lost in the wash of the 50-odd million Italian descendants already in the US.

If a person of eurpean background does soemthing bad to a hispanic person, it will be a "white" prson doing soemthing bad to a "minority".

If a hispanic person does something bad to a black person, it will be a "white" prson doing something bad to a "minority".

I guess this would be ideal... make it impossible for government to track a certain metric, and we will obviously have to use another metric. Or, there will be a selection on the census forms that says "check all that apply".

CSB,
When I was working the volunteer income tax assistance program, we were asked to ask if people spoke a language other than English in their homes. The site administrator said that it was so that the IRS could determine if forms in other languages were needed. I would get people who plainly spoke to each other in some other language, but they wouldn't actually list it. I guess for fear that saying they spoke another language could get them singled out for some sort of punishment. So, as long as folks will lie to the government about things that don't even matter, then we'll never really know who all is in our country and what's up.

This. Despite your recent history of pissing off the whole world the American dream is still alive and well in much of the world. Almost everyone who moves to America WANTS to be assimilated. That is why they go. Assimilation isn't a one way street either, American society and culture will be added to and altered as well. This is a good thing.

I am not a mathematician, but wouldn't it be 5% of 20, if the original number was 1% of 100?

Still, good point.

That would be nice. The same can be said for sexual orientation and religion. Until everyone finally realizes that we're here together, and the infighting does nothing to move us forward, we're all doomed to failure.

I would count this as a good movement. When we reach a point where ethnicity isn't a useful statistic, I think that demonstrates something fairly significant. We've pretty much mixed all of the white-ish ethnic groups into a single group. Time to start the real blender.

Now, this likely isn't a reality. Not yet, at least.

Because it is the first time in history, also given the differences in demographics it may mean a lot of changes.

1. It's an election year, and the conservatives may not be scared enough yet to vote in more white people.
2. We're seeing a surge in racism and bigotry, and nothing fuels controversy quite like "the minorities are outbreeding you!"
3. It's the AP, and they sell articles - thanks to points 1 & 2, that article sells.
 
2012-05-17 09:56:39 AM
Oh My! In a few short years, white people will be minorities. Do you realize what this means? Lots of white people will complain of profiling when they get busted Driving While White. Many of them will end up in the NBA or in prison. The few without a criminal record will spend their days listening to loud music, and eating fried chicken and water melon. Besides all of them looking alike, they will also have bad credit and live in the inner city. ....so sad for the cracker...

But the Muchachos on the other hand will finally get to live in the suburbs. They will also at last get to work and steal from big banks, which means they'll finally afford car insurance, and not have to work in the housekeeping depts.

Some people don't buy their kids new cloths from baby Gap and feed them 100% organic farm fresh arugula. Some of them make do with hand me downs and Frozen chicken nuggets. Some people don't drive $40k cars so they can afford stuff for their kids. Some work multiple jobs.

Also the implication that all Hispanics are poor is pretty scummy.
