Census: Minorities are the new majority

    Census figures now show that more minority babies are born in the U.S. than white babies. They also estimate that non-Hispanic whites will be a full-fledged minority group by 2042.

    As we were in 1620.

    My white persecution complex is tingling with anticipation at being statistically justified.

    Arnold Schwarzenegger says avoid the hot Latin blood, and especially avoid the ultra-hot combination of black and Latin blood. And he knows whereof he speaks.

    Did you ever think you were the crazy one? :)

    I've been forced to confront this idea on a couple of occasions as well.

    I've rejected it. I'm just attracted to the crazy.

    Your rejection is proof that you're crazy. :)

    But I'm betting the Census figures also would tell you that white men will still control the vast majority of wealth in the country regardless of changing demographics.
     
  9. These stories come around every so often, and it often makes me wonder why the media choose to identify Hispanics (most of whom self-identify as white for Census purposes) as a separate category when it suits the narrative and not when it doesn't.

    The notion that an immigrant from, say, Panama is automatically classified as a "minority" and an immigrant from, say, Romania or Pakistan, is classified as a Caucasian and thus is in the majority, is strange.

    It gets even more ridiculous when you have second- and third- and fourth-generation Americans from Spanish-speaking countries who have little or no connection to their Hispanic heritage other than, perhaps, a last name, and yet they are grouped differently for demographic purposes that have a questionable premise to begin with.

    This is a tangent, but I found it humorous that George Zimmerman (of the Trayvon Martin case) was constantly identified in the media as "white" when in any other context, he would be identified as Hispanic.

    I know a lot of you here think he's funny, maybe he is. I've never heard his act. But over here he's being willfully obtuse for a laugh, right? He can't be dumb enough to not get this.
