Uh oh. Looks like our poor Republican brethren and cistern are gonna have to dig even deeper into their bag of tricks. When your party is undisguisedly and single-mindedly about white rich guys, what do you do with information like this?
Deaths exceeded births among non-Hispanic white Americans for the first time in at least a century, according to new census data, a benchmark that heralds profound demographic change.
Over all, the number of non-Hispanic white Americans is expected to begin declining by the end of this decade. “These new census estimates are an early signal alerting us to the impending decline in the white population that will characterize most of the 21st century,” said William H. Frey, a demographer with the Brookings Institution.
The transition will mean that “today’s racial and ethnic minorities will no longer be dependent on older whites for their economic well-being,” Dr. Frey said. In fact, the situation may be reversed. “It makes more vivid than ever the fact that we will be reliant on younger minorities and immigrants for our future demographic and economic growth,” he said.
The viability of programs like Social Security and Medicare, Dr. Frey said, “will be reliant on the success of waves of young Hispanics, Asians and blacks who will become the bulwark of our labor force.” The issues of minorities, he added, “will hold greater sway than ever before.”
I guess you grin and say, heh heh we were just kidding. We liked you all along, see? Just pranking, you know, all in good fun. Now, will you like us back? Huh? Please?
