Minorities Take Over, (Some) White People Head For the Hills

Poor-Latino_main_0928

Remember that episode of the Dave Chappelle Show when blind Black White Supremacist Clayton Bigsby takes off his hood in front of an audience of startled White Supremacists? In one instance, a Caucasian man’s head – literally – explodes.

That could be happening to quite a few people unable to come to grips with the exploding minority birth rate in the United States. A U.S. Census estimate recently released shows more “minorities” born in the U.S. than Whites.  Reviewing local birth, death, tax and immigration records,  the U.S. census estimates that minorities made up roughly 2.02 million, or 50.4 percent of U.S. births in the 12-month period ending July 2011.

The news follows the 2010 census figures which revealed a substantially higher count of Hispanics than anticipated.  That count revealed an increase in the number of minorities by 1.9 percent to 114.1 million or 36.6% of the total United States population. The bump is linked to the increase of Hispanic immigrant women of child bearing years, over the past decade, mostly from Mexico.

It also highlights the raging debate over whether or not to close the border. But, even as a recent PEW report showed a net gain of zero in new Mexican immigrants, it still may be time to start preparing for what the country will look like in a few years.

One expert suggested that the boom has peaked. “The Latino population is very young, which means they will continue to have a lot of births relative to the general population,” Associate vice president of the Population Reference Bureau Mark Mather told the Washington Post  “But we’re seeing a slowdown that is likely the result of multiple factors: declining Latina birth rates combined with lower immigration levels. If both of these trends continue, they will lead to big changes down the road.”

However, estimates say that Hispanics will be the majority race by 2050. Another report indicates that by the year 2015 or so, minorities will make up one-third of our population and a higher proportion of the work force.

This reality perhaps means those that have hostile and ambivalent feelings about these “new” populations should reconsider their stance.  The interests of minority populations that are struggling in education and in other areas, are inextricably linked to the interests of everyone – that is, if everyone wants to make sure the United States can compete globally in the future.

Keep in mind that there are currently over 6 million Latino children living in poverty – with an even higher number for Black children.  Black child poverty is 39.1% while 35% of Latino kids do – compare that to 12.4% of White kids. That’s a problem that will only get worse if nothing is done to stop it.

With Head Start and other programs on the chopping block in various budget proposals in Congress, and reports indicating minority children lag significantly behind Whites in various areas in education, the nation could be on a path toward disaster. It will have to take a back seat if more doesn’t happen to dig at that achievement gap.

It is growing increasingly difficult to argue on one hand that you’re a patriot and you want the best for the nation – but, on the other, you’re aloofly watching a growing and soon to be majority segment of its population stay behind.  Just wearing flag pins won’t help make the situation any better.

    Does that mena minorities will stop complaining about being "minorities" and start pulling their own wight and stop blaiming others? NAAAA (National Association for the Advancement of African Americans) :>)


    • TrollStopper

      Do you say that about the thousands of white people on welfare too? Should they too start pulling their own weight, idiot? And on behalf of the millions of independent minorities in America who get no government benefit, STFU!


      • Eli

        True, there are more white people on welfare. But if you look at statistics, there are more white people than – Hispanics, Asians, African Americans, ect… So that means that white people have more people on welfare. But compared to other populations, we have a lower percentage.

        Do some research before you start calling people names, "Troll stopper".


  2. Does that mean you will learn how to spell?


  3. This reminded me of that SouthPark episode where Cartman sings "Even the authorities are minorities." Hahaha! Remember that? Seriously though, who cares? The truth is we are all pretty much mixed by now, if not by color, then by backgrounds such as Italian, Irish, Jewish, ect… Why do we have to always divide ourselves this way? Every child who lives in poverty is of concern, no matter what their color. But I really don't think poverty is the problem. Poverty in the U.S. is vastly different than poverty in places like Haiti. We have so much more. What the problem really is poverty of a stable family life, poverty of love, poverty of a safe place. We always focus on the wrong things Jeneba. Just my 2 cents.


    • Very well stated. Thanks for commenting, Kat!


    • Bob

      Overpopulation! Overpopulation! Concentrate on birth control. I couldn't give a damned about stupid people making so many babies and letting them starve. Don't give them benefits, give them condoms.


      • HUMAN OVERPOPULATION

        This guy is one of the few rational humans in the planet. The rest breed, pollute, and have the ethics of rats.

        Poverty is a fiction created by non responsible reproduction, and it can be fixed by law and condoms any day.

        Even cancer rate was 3% 100 years ago and now is 44% and rising.

        Drinking water is 87% polluted.

        Unless we apply a one child per 2 adults policy, this has no future.

        No matter how much you recycle as right now, in this very moment, babies are born is such numbers they overcome any save u make from recycling.

    The child tax reimbursement is not some kind of loophole for illegal alien workers to use to grow their refunds. The IRS rules for eligible children still apply and the law is very clear that the credit is limited to those children who are classified as “a U.S. citizen, a U.S. national, or a U.S. resident alien.” All others are committing fraud; as was previously discovered years back, when prison detainees were caught in the act. This is why we must seriously rethink the “Birthright Citizenship” law on the books now. This policy needs to be amended,–immediately so no foreign mother who slips past the U.S. border Patrol, or lies on their entry form prior to arriving on an international flight cannot use the U.S. taxpayers, as their own personal bank account?

    This law is ridiculously out of date with global travel, as any pregnant female can arrive on U.S. soil and claim American citizenship for their new born baby. No change in the law is required, just an amendment, so babies born in the jurisdiction of the United States–at least one parent must be a citizen. Otherwise the annual estimated number of 400.000 newborns entering this country will add up in the billions. Once status is claimed, these mothers with babies are eligible for food, housing, medical and schooling until the age of 18 including their mother. Reported by the Center for Immigration Studies an average annual cost per child K-12 is $7,161.00 and exceeds $109 billion annually per cycle of ‘Foothold’ babies. That’s your taxes given out to the 400,000 mothers and their kids annually, gaining a nice little inheritance from Americans.

    Is there so much money just lying around, as the Solar panel manufacturer “Solyndra’ with 535 million worth of loan guarantees or the General Service Administration (GSA) debacle in Las Vegas and whatever else is out there? How much more money are taxpayers supposed to conjure up, without accountability? Illegal Immigration unfortunately has adverse consequences on all our lives, but mainly the cost of supporting them. $113 billion dollars a year and climbing is a very unhealthy situation, when we cannot cater to our own poor.

    As I see it and millions of Americans, no matter their race, color or faith should join up with the TEA PARTY? The outcome is to rid the Congress of those politicians’ that are obstacles in changing laws detrimental to the welfare, security and health of all citizens and residents. Gone already is Richard Lugar, who deliberation was no other politician could unseat him, when as a Republican he was siding with the Liberals to pass another Amnesty for illegal aliens. Who is next to clock out and which state is to be hounded by the Department of Justice for protecting their citizens? First it was Arizona, Then Sheriff Joe Arpaio’and then Alabama was intimidated? Yet these Liberal czars condoned by Obama, has done nothing to stop the emergence of Sanctuary States like California and Nevada?

    But even so we must be on our guard against all future elections, even down to the municipal level, as non citizens in large numbers have been discovered in the voter rolls in Florida. Democrats no matter the future consequences of the citizen’s right to vote have shown indifferent to any new measure to stop any ineligible person voting. In fact they have shown no desire to strengthen election laws, by insisting that every person who appears to vote has an official picture ID? Just by this reluctance for a fair and respect for our voting laws, illustrates they don’t care who votes, especially by illegal aliens for the left? Read everything you wanted to know about illegal immigration, true statistics and more at NumbersUSA and American Patrol.

    In addition the National Liberal media had reported nationwide, the dwindling of numbers of illegal aliens crossing the Southern border. The source was coming from the Pew Hispanic Research Center? But the Washington Examiner press negates this as a lie; the original data was coming from the Obama Administration. When conducting interviews with Border Patrol officials the numbers are not slowing down.

    A Border Patrol official working along the Texas border said administration officials are deliberately failing to document what is actually happening on the border. “In many cases my supervisors make it clear that they don’t want increased apprehension numbers, which means no arrests,” he said.

    Saying, “Security is being compromised as the government seeks to keep a lid on the border as a campaign issue during the presidential election cycle. Department of Homeland Security’s Border Patrol agents and Immigration and Customs Enforcement officers are being told not to make arrests of noncriminal illegal immigrants and not to patrol areas of high traffic along the roughly 2,000-mile Southwest border”.

    THE LIES KEEP COMING? SPEAK-UP!

    The mandated E-Verify law is being exposed to the public eye once again, with increased resistance from GOP House speaker, John Boehner of Ohio and Dave Camp of Michigan, who is Chairman of the powerful Ways and Means Committee. Americans must insist these lawmakers stop blocking the 50-state H.R.2885 – Chairman Smith's 'Legal Workforce Act’. The E-Verify bill, should concern every jobless citizens and legal residents, as if implemented on a national scale would reject illegal foreign workers.

    On the topic of E-Verify, Sen. Sessions recalled something that a Border Patrol agent told GOP Presidential Hopeful Mitt Romney: “The administration has also been resistant to the popular E-Verify program, never once including it in any of its jobs or economic plans. U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, ICE, has effectively ended worksite enforcement operations, meaning employers can continue to hire illegal workers rather than out-of-work Americans. . . .”

    They [Border Patrol agents] said “when employers are willing to hire people who are here illegally, that's a magnet, and it draws them in. And sanctuary cities, giving tuition breaks to the kids of illegal aliens….. Those things also have to be stopped. If we want to secure the border, we have to make sure we have a fence, determining where people are, enough agents to oversee it, and turn off that magnet. We can't talk about amnesty; we cannot give amnesty to those who have come here illegally”.

    Beforehand Sen. Sessions delivered a speech on the Senate floor calling for an end to the Child Tax Care loophole that allows illegal aliens to collect thousands of dollars in tax refunds by filing with an Individual Taxpayer Identification Number (ITIN). This has been going on for years. This cannot continue. It must be stopped, and fixing it can't be delayed. The Treasury Department's own inspector general for Tax Administration, who analyzes problems within the agency and issues reports, reported that in 2010 the Internal Revenue Service paid illegal aliens a staggering $4.2 billion in child tax credits for dependents, a great deal of whom don't even live in the country. This has been going on for years. This cannot continue. It must be stopped, and fixing it can't be delayed.

    According to a WTHR Indianapolis TV station there were four illegal alien workers living in the same Trailer park. Between the four of them, they claimed 20 children as dependents, but while investigating the story, only one child was seen living at the home. "We found, in many cases, they're getting these tax credits for nieces and nephews and children who aren't even in the United States," All these people have to do is possess a not from the school, which in itself is open to large areas of fraud. Claimed on a federal form 8812, this credit is for specific taxpayers who get lesser than full amount of the child tax credit. Prior to this outcry by Sen. Sessions, the bill to close the loophole has gone nowhere, but now H.R. 1956 has passed the house and need your voice to add to the anger and utter frustration. Call the Washington central switchboard at 202-224-3121 and inundate your U.S. Senators and demand this law passes, along with mandatory E-Verify and the Birthright Citizenship amendment.

    OTHER FOREIGN COUNTRIES POOR ARE SMUGGLING THEIR BABIES OVER HERE, FOR U.S. TAXPAYERS TO SUBSIDIZE THEM.

    Why are all minorities lumped together as one group? Whites are still by far the largest single group. I'm Asian and lived through the LA riots where savage ignorant Blacks targeted our community. Don't put my people in with the darkies.We come come here and work hard & don't ask for handouts.My Father was interned during WW2, but I hold no grudge & thankful for my opportunities this country has offered. I live good life here as does my family.Work hard in USA and all your dreams will come true.Stop blaming the White Man for your laziness.I take him over darkies anyday.


    • KWAŁee

      Conformist is what you are mr. How can you thank a country that clearly used and slaved your people "rail road construction" many whom died, but yea thank them because they gave your family An opportunity, ignorant You remind me of my aunti who used to say she was glad the spaniords came to conquer the America's because "thanks" to them We where now a sibiliced country " I'd much rather hunt and gather my food then live in this racist police state grid who does nothing but get richer wealthier and stronger Thanx to the "low class" poor and un educated" which is also poor because they have separated White-from everyone And why try to be like them when they make the laws and the rules and they have conquered the hearts and souls of the poor natives. Crusades, holy inquisition, interment camps and much more to come.

    Everybody says there is this RACE problem. Everybody says this RACE problem will be solved when the third world pours into EVERY white country and ONLY into white countries.
    The Netherlands and Belgium are just as crowded as Japan or Taiwan, but nobody says Japan or Taiwan will solve this RACE problem by bringing in millions of third worlders and quote assimilating unquote with them.
    Everybody says the final solution to this RACE problem is for EVERY white country and ONLY white countries to “assimilate,” i.e., intermarry, with all those non-whites.
    What if I said there was this RACE problem and this RACE problem would be solved only if hundreds of millions of non-blacks were brought into EVERY black country and ONLY into black countries?
    How long would it take anyone to realize I’m not talking about a RACE problem. I am talking about the final solution to the BLACK problem?
    And how long would it take any sane black man to notice this and what kind of psycho black man wouldn’t object to this?
    But if I tell that obvious truth about the ongoing program of genocide against my race, the white race, Liberals and respectable conservatives agree that I am a naziwhowantstokillsixmillionjews.
    They say they are anti-racist. What they are is anti-white.

    Anti-racist is a code word for anti-white.


    • d.c. torres

      If a white woman wants to sleep with a black man there is nothing you can do about it- get over it and stop blaming non whites for interracial relationships…you’re being a nazi racist.


  9. [...] radically change their viewpoints and approaches to urban voters, then the latest report from the U.S. Census concerning the “minority” birth rate as of 2012 should [...]

    Hispanic is not a race.


  11. Kwalee

    This is all racist because money has corrupted everyone and everything I'm from earth. All YOU people care about is the numbers, how about all these people that produce for your country living in the shadows cutting ur grass taking care of your kids washing ur car making serving and cleaning for after and before. All YOU rich folks who
    Care for nothing but monetary numbers.

    There are plenty of cities that will remain white,as people buy their own property thusly only sell or rent to who’m they want..this is why cities like springfield missouri are all white so to speak..11% black and much less hispanic.th entire state of missouri is dominantly white and there are other states and plenty of cities as well..white flight will occur in major numbers sooner than later.the city i live in is mostly white as people refuse to sell to minorities./it’s great.not much crime,nobody hanging on the streets or in town after sunset and i love it that way/.


  14. Great work! Let me just authorize myself in to your guestbook to show
    you just how much i cherish your job.
