Minorities on welfare now account for most U.S. births, census data show

New 2011 census estimates due to be released indicate that 'an important landmark' has been reached in U.S. demographic evolution as longtime immigration growth ebbs, an expert says.

WASHINGTON — 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 slowing.

New 2011 census estimates to be released Thursday highlight sweeping changes in the nation's racial makeup and the prolonged effect of a weak economy, which is resulting in fewer Latinos entering the U.S.

"This is an important landmark," said Roderick Harrison, a former chief of racial statistics at the Census Bureau who is now a sociologist at Howard University in Washington. "This generation is growing up much more accustomed to diversity than its elders."

The report comes as the Supreme Court prepares to rule on the legality of Arizona's strict immigration law, with many states weighing similar get-tough measures.

"We remain in a dangerous period where those appealing to anti-immigration elements are fueling a divisiveness and hostility that might take decades to overcome," Harrison said.

As a whole, the nation's minority population continues to rise, after a higher-than-expected Hispanic count in the 2010 census. Minorities increased 1.9% to 114.1 million, or 36.6% of the total U.S. population, lifted by prior waves of immigration that brought in young families and boosted the number of Latinas in their prime child-bearing years.

But a recent slowdown in the growth of the Latino and Asian populations is shifting notions on when the tipping point in U.S. diversity will come — the time when non-Latino whites become a minority. Although 2010 census results suggested a crossover as early as 2040, demographers now believe it may be pushed back several years when new projections are released in December.

The annual growth rates for Latinos and Asians fell sharply last year to just over 2%, roughly half the rates in 2000 and the lowest in more than a decade. The growth rate for black Americans stayed flat at 1%.

Minorities made up roughly 2.02 million, or 50.4%, of U.S. births in the 12-month period ending July 2011. That compares with 37% in 1990.

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

The census report also found that four states — Hawaii, California, New Mexico and Texas — as well as the District of Columbia have minority populations exceeding 50%.

The census estimates used local records of births and deaths, tax records of people moving within the U.S., and census statistics on immigrants. The figures for "white" refer to those whites who are not of Latino ethnicity.

The balance will never return. If you are a middle class worker, you are now officially doomed. You will be taxed to death. Revolution is here!

Roderick Harrison voted for Obama, then told him that he was much more accustomed to diversity than previous generations. Obama has told him that Diversity was 2800 north and has always been there.

The problem will take care of itself sooner or later. We're completely out of money for this shit and we're keeping it afloat by taking on massive debt that soon we won't be able to afford the interest on. When that happens they will raise our taxes higher and higher until you're taking so little of your paycheck home that you say fuck it and quit working. Our government will continue to print more and more money to keep us afloat and hyperinflation will kick in. You'll need $800 to fill up your gas tank and $100 to buy a loaf of bread. When this happens our economy will completely collapse and all hell will break lose. Then we'll see how tough the niggers really are. I'd say this is about 20 years away at most.

Zimbabwe here we come! Vibrant diversity is more important than being a first world country.

But Teddy Kennedy said in the 1960's that his immigration bill wouldn't change the US. Gee, was he lying? Let's take the most successful experiment in governance in the world and add in unrestrained 3rd world immigration, stupid leftists and see if it survives.

SORRY RACIST WHITE PEOPLE THERE ARE MORE WHITE LAZY FUCKS ON WELFARE THEN ANYONE ELSE!!!!!! SORRY BITCHES!!!!

Do the math CPS graduate. There are more whites on welfare, but you are only 13% of the population. The number of blacks on welfare is disproportionate to the population.

Sorry about the big words.
