And the year is…………….2040 is syndicated radio episode on on our Blog Talk Radio Show. In the first episode, we will talk about the declining birth rate of the white population. For the first time in our history, the death rate of the white population has exceeded the birth rate. According to researchers, this will continue to the year 2025.
Several demographers have pointed out that no other racial group in the US experienced a similar drop. Such a natural decrease within the white population is the first of its kind and was not even observed in the US during wars or Depression, the Washington Post reported.
At current, the median age range for the white population is 42, Asians 34, African Americans is under32, and Hispanics is under 28. Demographer, William Frey (Brookings Institution) says the slow decline of the white population will characterize this century. The data also reveals the following:
That half of the America’s under-5 age group is made up of racial and ethnic minorities, amounting to 49.9 percent in 2012. If the current rate of growth continues, then the whites in the under-5 group will become a minority in 2013-14, the Census Bureau’s acting director Thomas Mesenbourg told AP.The Bureau also predicts that just in five years minorities will become the majority of children under 18.And after that mark the total white population will start to significantly decline as aging baby boomers will start dying.
So what is behind this?
Women with college degrees are having kids much later-thereby having fewer kids or none at all – or having difficulty. – The economic recession that hit the US in 2007 also had a negative impact on birth rates, as more white women believed that they could not afford to have more kids.
How does this change policy?
Many activist like myself are concerned about this.
Ethnic changes in the US are prompting activists to demand for amends to some of the civil rights programs in higher education, such as affirmative action in college admissions.
The Supreme Court is expected to rule on the issue this month. Activists are arguing that they should now be more focused on income rather than race and ethnicity, AP reported.
Currently there are more than 36 percent of university students that are minorities, up from 16 percent in 1980. And the black voter turnout was more than white turnout in last year’s presidential election. So as a caucasian, it is time we ask ourselves. Are the current civil rights laws in place to defend us? This this to include hate crimes. Have your legislators included the fact that if it is a black on white crime that it can be prosecuted as a hate crime? As a caucasian, you may experience reverse racism if you haven’t already.
Further, ask what the political landscape will look like. There will be many more minorities in the the government. Will the Republican Party still exist? Or, will we a bunch of divided ethnic minority groups. With the Left who excoriates any person for even being white-what chance of survival is there for this race?
Remembering Baby Antony West
This issue has come up because there have been a number of black on white attacks that go unnoticed by the Main Stream Media. Baby Antony was shot for the fun of it by two black teenagers in in a failed robbery in a Georgia suburb in March. The robbers also attacked the mom, leaving her wounded. The trial for the two black teens is held in August.
Why is this case brought up here?
Because a new study by Sociologists from Harvard and Tufts Universities reveal that White Americans feel they are more discriminated against than blacks,. .Sociologists from Harvard and Tufts universities asked 209 white and 208 black men and women to rate ‘racism’ against both ethnic groups since the 1950s on a scale of one to 10.The results showed that while both blacks and whites saw anti-black racism decreasing over the decades, whites saw race relations as a ‘zero sum game’ where they were losing out as blacks ‘gained’ the advantage.
The results, published in the journal Perspectives on Psychological Science, showed that on average blacks saw anti-white bias rising slightly from 1.4 in the 1950s to 1.8 today.
Blacks also perceived that racism against themselves had steeply declined from 9.7 in the 1950s to 6.1 in the 90s.
White respondents, however, saw a very different picture.
For the 2000s, 11 per cent of whites gave anti-white bias the maximum 10 out of 10 rating, compared with only two per cent of whites who did so for anti-black bias.
Whites believed that discrimination against them had increased from an average of 1.8 in the 1950s to 4.7 in the 2000s.
All those surveyed were asked: ‘Indicate how much you think blacks/whites were/are the victims of discrimination in the United States in each of the following decades.’
Responding to the results, researchers Michael Norton and Samuel Sommers said that despite predictions that Barack Obama’s election in 2008 would herald a ‘post racial’ America, this had not in fact occurred.
They concluded: ‘A flurry of legal and cultural disputes over the past decade has revealed a new race-related controversy gaining traction: an emerging belief in anti-white prejudice. The research was conducted by:Michael Norton (left) and Samuel R Sommers conducted the research into perceptions of racism to analyze theories about ‘post racial’ America (Credit Mail Online Daily Mail Reporter)
