New population projections by the US Census Bureau show that whites will become a minority by 2044. The US will be home to a youthful, growing minority population juxtaposed against an aging, slow-growing, and soon to be declining white population.
The new projections from the Census Bureau show two trends for American’s population: a long-term decline for the nation’s white population – which will make up 49.7 percent of the population by 2044 – and a growth of minorities such as Asians, Latinos, and multiracial persons.
In fact, the Latino, Asian, and multiracial populations are all expected to double in size over the next 40 years. Specifically, Latinos are projected to make up 25.1 percent of the US population in 2044, doubling that of African-Americans.
The pace of U.S. population growth is slowing, and the population continues to become more diverse,” Kenneth Johnson, senior demographer at the University of New Hampshire’s Carsey School of Public Policy, told Al Jazeera America. “This will produce a rich tapestry of demographic change in the U.S. over the next several decades.”

The other emerging trend is the aging of the white population, which by 2060 will make up just 44 percent of the population. Of that, 55 percent will be 65 years and older. And by 2027, more than half of America’s twenty-somethings will be racial minorities. During the 2028 presidential election, 40 percent of all eligible voters will be racial minorities.

The population changes are being brought about by higher birth rates among minority populations, mixed households, and more interracial marriages. Against those trends are the declining growth rates and rapid aging of the white population – the result of both lower birth rates among younger white Americans, and the advancing age of the Baby Boom generation.
Thirty percent all grandparents in America have a grandchild of a different race or ethnicity, and the diversity in this country is growing in so many ways, we are just starting to get a grasp on those changes,” Guy Garcia, president of New Mainstream Initiatives for Ethnifacts, told Latin Post.
Gay parents, when they adopt, there is a high rate of multicultural adoptions. We have all these new variation and permutations of the American family. It’s going to continue to happen, and the highest growth is coming from people of color, but they are mixing and merging and having children with people of every race, and it is going to continue to be that way.”

Garcia said that technology and social media, with its instantaneous speed and global reach, is enabling new ways of expression for inter-ethnic communities and communities that never existed before.
“That hyper-connected future includes Ambiculturals – people of colors who are retaining the values and flavors of their cultural origins as well as their American sensibilities, and fluidly exploring and advancing opportunities of both,” Garcia said.
Garcia said that in the 2010 US Census, nine million people checked multiple identification boxes. They might have checked white, Hispanic or other, and even the Census chief, Robert Groves, said they weren’t capturing how people see themselves.

Garcia said self-identification is starting to shift, with some people saying they are 100 percent Latino, Asian, or African-American, as well as 100 percent American.
Paul Taylor in his book 'The Next America' said the changes will produce generational competition in future decades over resources and government priorities. And according to the US Census data, later in the 21st century there will be no majority demographic group in the United States.

Yeah there is a certain amount of scaremongering involved in statistics like that because it assumes each individual is a set ethnicity which isn't the case, for example to the world I am a New Zealander however within New Zealand I am mixed race my grandmother on one side was Maori, my Grandfather on the same side was a New Zealander and on the other side I have a Swedish or Norwegian (cant quite figure it out) grandfather and an English grandmother.

So what am I, New Zealand Maori or New Zealand European?

The answer is simple I am a New Zealander I was born here the rest is irrelevant and it is the same in America I am prepared to bet that despite looking Asian, European, Hispanic etc. most of them see themselves as Americans.

yes all of them are American but the US you see now and the US which most of it's people will be Non-white race have a lot of difference. I think the point of this news is this matter.

Well I, for one, see Americans as Americans. I don't care about the color of your skin or which god you pray to. We're ALL Americans here.

well, it is OK but my question is what will happen when more than 50% of your Presidents, Ministers, Senators, Politicians, military, Judges .... are Latins race or Chinese race or black race or ... when more than half of your people are Non-white race ? It is the thing we don't have it experience before.

I agree it will take a bit of an adjustment in peoples thinking to accept the change but I do not think it is as big of an adjustment as is thought, the fact is the world is a very small place and in the end it will just be one big homogenous blob of human DNA because of constant inter-racial marriage and breeding.

I don't see it as good or bad but rather inevitable.

To be perfectly honest I could not tell you the "ethnic" make up of New Zealands government primarily because I assume they are all New Zealanders no matter what they look like and I really just don't care what they were in the past.

This whole thing probably should be in the Politics section. Liberals seem to be trying to end all aspects of "Traditional America" including busting "The Great American Melting Pot" where regardless of where you were from you were expected to become one of "us". Now under the guise of "Diversity" they're pushing that where you're from is more important than where you are now, Balkanizing America with the Democrats dividing the population up into groups competing to get govt. benefits.

Yes George, you're right, this thread should be in the Politics section.

13 percentage of the US people are black and 11 percentage of them are latino but what percentage of the US politicians are black or Latino? It should be 24% but it isn't.I think blacks+Latinos don't have the same as Jews power in the US which are 2 percentage of the US population. it seems that there is racism in the US. If the ratio of the different races in the US changes, I think you will have some problem in future.
It always was a question for me, why the black people in the US are successful in the things which are related to body power like basketball, boxing or athletics but in the fields which are related to mind power are weak like university degrees or politic or law??
