Minorities Overpower White Births In U.S. For The First Time
A Census data breakdown from July 2010 to July 2011 shows more than half the children born in the United States are racial or ethnic minorities. Of the 4.01 million births, 1.99 million were white, 1.05 were Hispanic, .61 million Black, .25 were two or more races, .19 were Asian, .07 were Native American and .01 were Pacific Islander.
The total shows 49.6% of births were white, 50.4% were minorities. The nation’s minority population continues to rise. The younger generation is growing up more accustomed to other races and ethnicities than older peeps.
A story by the Associated Press points out the growth in Hispanic population for increased numbers. The story also illustrates the belief that the Hispanic population boom has peaked, especially as the Supreme Court prepares to rule on the legality of Arizona’s immigration law.
