Whites Are The Slowest Growing US Group; Will Lose Majority Around 2040

The median age in most areas of the US is rising, while the population is growing more diverse, according to Census Bureau data released Thursday. America’s median age - the age where half of the population is half younger and half older - rose from 35.3 years on April 1, 2000, to 37.9 years on July 1, 2016, according to the data. Meanwhile, the population of White Americans is growing at a much slower rate than most minority groups: The number of whites living in the US increased by 0.5% last year to 256 million. By comparison, the Asian population grew 3% to 21.4 million, the black or African American population grew by 1.2% to 46.8 million and the Hispanic population grew 2% to 57.5 million.

The US isn’t the only country struggling with an aging population. With average marriage ages rising, and economic circumstances making it more difficult for couples in developed economies like the US, Japan and Europe to afford children, many countries are facing a demographic crunch in social welfare programs. But nowhere is this more of an immediate problem than China, where – thanks to its decades-long one-child policy – the working-age population will soon fall off a cliff.

The Nation's Median Age Continues to Rise

In the US, the baby-boom generation is largely responsible for this trend, according to Peter Borsella, a demographer in the Census Bureau’s Population Division. “Baby boomers began turning 65 in 2011 and will continue to do so for many years to come.”

Indeed, the number of US residents aged 65 and over grew from 35 million in 2000, to 49.2 million in 2016, accounting for 12.4 percent and 15.2 percent of the total population, respectively.

With growth rates for white Americans expected to remain subdued, the Associated Press says they will cease being the majority ethnic group some time after 2040, though they will remain a plurality of the population.

The youngest cohort of America's population is also one of its fastest-growing: The Census report showed that children in the US born from 2001 through 2016 were the nation's fastest-growing age group, with a 6.8 percent jump in the year beginning July 1, 2015.

Putting its own spin on the census data, The New York Times compared each of the US’s 3,000 counties with the national population at different points in America's history - as well as its future. The Times found that counties with populations that are about 75 percent white tend to reflect the America of the 1970s and 1980s. Those where the population is half white and more diverse tend to reflect the (projected) America of the 2040s and 2050s.

For example, Sioux Falls, South Dakota, which is 84% White, resembles America in 1989. Meanwhile, Tooele County, in Northwestern Utah, more closely resembles America from 1971, when the population was both less diverse and younger. Seminole County, near Orlando, Fla., most closely matches the nation’s current mix, followed by Richmond County, aka Staten Island, in New York City.

Urban counties, which tend to be more diverse than suburban or exurban areas, more closely resemble the America of the future. Cook County, Ill., closely resembles what demographers believe the US will be like in 2047. Maricopa County, Ariz., resembles the demographics of the nation in 2020.

The numbers add up to 390 million. If we back out 8.5 million for the people who profess two races, and back out all the Hispanics, we are left with 198 million whites, and a total of 324 (still higher than actual population). 198 is quite different than 256 and many whites do not consider Mexican mestizo's as part of their own group. The evil white ruthless majority is actually less than 62%

Jeezus time to find out where some of them were buried and start digging up the bodies.

Lucky me I was vaccinated for small pox twice: once as a kid and another time in the US Army. And don't fucking tell me "no you were not" because I have my WHO shot records with the Doctor's signature, the vial, and the fucking brand that was used.

And it is by DESIGN, not CHANCE:
It’s Just a Cohencidence

Sam was fired from National Review by Bill Buckley for telling the truth about a certain group:

Mass Immigration Eats Through The Melting Pot
March 04, 2004 Sam Francis

It's also interesting he acknowledges the Jewish connection, since it's becoming increasingly obvious. Mr. Karnow, as he makes sure to tell us at the end of his column, is Jewish himself, and so, he also made sure to tell us, was Kallen. And one reason they like immigration so much is precisely because of what it does to the "Anglo Protestant core" of American civilization.

A couple of years ago, the Forward, the principal Jewish newspaper in the country, reported a remark made by Leonard Glickman, president and CEO of the Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society, in explaining why his organization was promoting the resettlement of Somali refugees in the United States: "The more diverse American society is the safer [Jews] are." Mr. Glickman is not alone.

Perhaps for much the same reason, Jewish John Podhoretz, David Brooks and several others don't much like the very concept of an "Anglo Protestant core."

Unlike most conservatives, almost all of them rushed to endorse President Bush's amnesty proposals as soon as he announced them, and some like Mr. Brooks have rushed to denounce the Huntington article.

Jewish Americans played a crucial role in pushing for mass immigration throughout the last century, and there's no more reason that should be a secret than there is that Roman Catholics have pushed hard for banning abortion.

Unfortunately, there is a secret about it—because people who mention it tend to get smashed as "anti-Semites."

Safer in diersity until ...Blacks know who the culprits are ...Whites know who the culprits are ...All other ethnics know who the culrpits are ...Everybody knows who the culprits are ...Then they got the worst problem of all ... all those that know who the culprits are will join forces to eradicate them again.The whole concept is by design but amazingly the outcome is always the same too ...

It can be demonstrated that high status (and thus high IQ) was highly correlated with child birth in Western society from at least 1000 BC to around 1850. The poor didn't have that many offspring. It was around the industrial revolution and the availability of cheaper industrially produced foods when the poor started to breed more and more and more. This basically removed genetic selection from our society.

Higher IQ's equals more incomeHigher IQ's equals more taxes to feed the low IQ's people, they grow kids like rabbits they don't care:         a) kids get sick (they obomocare)         b) have a good education         c) give them the good part of life         d) they feed them EBT cards plastic foodHigher IQ's equals less income, you must have few kids to give them         a) good health insurance         b) money to attend a good private school and not the public nightmare school with those low IQ's from above         c) feed  them properly         d) pay for one or two good nannies to take care of children when they go to work.If Higher IQ's don't have conditions to give their sons a good life they won't have kids, instead low IQ's have children because they get more money from welfareSocialism is a "Beach"Big government/welfare state taxes are killing white society

Hillbillies and country folk need to get off the oxycotin and get back to fucking.

Every white male should be married by age 18.

Every white female should be married by age 16.

Every single white household should have six or more children.

White grandparents should be no older than mid 40's.

White Great grandparents should be mid sixty's.

Allow any white European, disgusted by EU immigration policy, to freely emigrate to the USA, learn English, and assimilate.

Keep this up for a hundred years and we keep our country.

Well that is going to be a bloody fucking nightmare. No way do I want to live anywhere with a majority of niggers and spics. No way in hell. I would rather move to Greenland or Iceland than live in a place with a majority of fucking niggers.
