America Has Just As Many Ethnic Minority Babies As White Babies So Choke On Your Cheerios, Racists
The U.S. Census Bureau released some figures Thursday that are going to make certain people in America just as pissed off as watching an adorable girl enjoy Cheerios with her mixed race family: for the first time, America has just as many ethnic minority babies and toddlers as white ones. From The United States Census Bureau:
The U.S. Census Bureau today released a set of estimates showing that 50.4 percent of our nation’s population younger than age 1 were minorities as of July 1, 2011. This is up from 49.5 percent from the 2010 Census taken April 1, 2010. A minority is anyone who is not single-race white and not Hispanic.
Oh nooooooes! Americuh’ is actually a melting pot and people aren’t basing who they fall in love and have babies with on things like race and ethnic background! The horrors! Nationally, the most populous minority group are hispanics and African Americans were the second largest minority group. For children younger than age five, 49.7 percent were a minority or mixed race last year. The new estimates illustrate that for the first time in well over a century, the death rate for white people in America outnumbers the birth rate. Poor whitey.*
I don’t know about you guys, but my own kids barely have any white friends, now that I think about it. I don’t even know what race any of them are, and I don’t even pay attention to them unless they leave their shoes on when entering my house. I’m joking, of course, but I’m just not shocked when one parent drops them off and another parent picks them up and they happen to be of a different race. I guess I find it sort of surprising that anyone actually still cares about junk like this, but then again, all I have to do is read the freakishly racist comments on certain You Tube videos to remind me that this sort of bigotry is still alive and well in Mericuh’.Oh and PS:
