[quote:jeeez 9372445:MV8xODcxMTczXzMxMjE2MzAwXzQ1MzY5NTQ5] White, 39 year old Brit here. I used to consider myself a racist and I was right to do so. I've changed alot as a person in the last few years (leaving the UK to live in another country definitely made me rethink my immigration stance - what right did I have to close 'my' borders if I am now living inside some other person's borders?) and I'm learning to see other races, colours, whatever as different, but not necessarily overall superior or inferior. All races have strengths and weaknesses and it's often our weaknesses that make us jealous of other races. How many white people out there will admit to feeling anger to black atheletes, when they're dominating an event? That's how I used to feel. We all know our weaknesses as a race, if we're honest with ourselves. They're not important. Rejoice our strengths, which we never celebrate, except to use in 'racial superiority' arguments. That's how I'm starting to see things, anyway. Reading some of the comments in this thread, I'm glad I changed. I'm still racist, I have my prejudices, but I'm trying to be a better person and y'know what, it starts to make sense after a while. [/quote]
Statistics reveal a turning point in U.S. history. Less than half of the babies is of European descent.
U.S. census statistics, published on Thursday says that more than half of newborns belong to a minority. For the first time in the history Caucasian of European ancestry are a minority of new-born babies, the American news media say.
The calculation of the population were observed between July 2010 and July 2011. 50.4 percent of newborn babies belonged to ethnic minority. Two years earlier, during the same period minorities accounted for 48.6 per cent.
The newspaper The Wall Street Journal writes that a black president, Barack Obama's selection in 2008 was a symbolic change in the American people in the face. Now, the change is also a statistical fact.
Newspaper interview with demographer William Frey says that those generations who are over 50-year-old, blacks are the largest minority. Younger generations in turn, the largest minority after European whites are those of Latin American origin.
