Executive Summary If current trends continue, the population of the United States will rise to 438 million in 2050, from 296 million in 2005, and 82% of the increase will be due to immigrants arriving from 2005 to 2050 and their U.S.-born descendants, according to new projections developed by the Pew Research Center. Of the 117 million people added to the population during this period due to the effect of new immigration, 67 million will be the immigrants themselves and 50 million will be their U.S.-born children or grandchildren. Among the other key population projections: • Nearly one in five Americans (19%) will be an immigrant in 2050, compared with one in eight (12%) in 2005. By 2025, the immigrant, or foreign-born, share of the population will surpass the peak during the last great wave of immigration a century ago.
Study Sees Non-Hispanic Whites Shrinking to Minority Status in U.S. By SARAH GARLAND, Staff Reporter of the Sun | February 12, 2008 * COMMENT * | * SHARE * | * PRINT * | * EMAIL * Add to del.icio.us * Add to Digg * Add to Facebook * Add to Newsvine America could come to resemble New York City by 2050, when one in five residents will have been born in another country if immigration flows hold at the current rate, a study published yesterday by the Pew Hispanic Center said. The study's projections found that non-Hispanic whites will become a minority in less than 50 years, while both the Hispanic and Asian populations will have tripled in size.
Don't you know that the whitey is the minority now.. recheck your demographics.
Only 36 of the 2,380 delegates seated on the convention floor are black, the lowest number since the Joint Center for Political and Economic Studies began tracking diversity at political conventions 40 years ago. Each night, the overwhelmingly white audience watches a series of white politicians step to the lectern -- a visual reminder that no black Republican has served as a governor, U.S. senator or U.S. House member in the past six years.

I have read several comments how the audience in the Republican Convention were or are basically white. This is a true statement and I don't expect it to change.
Republicans have a real crisis on their hands if they don't find a way to attract more minorities in the near future.

Reasons why republicans are unable to gather minority voters is because what you just witnessed in during the RNC belittling community organizers. Community organizers are people like :
Martin Luther King Jr.
I can go on but it would just be easier if people would search on wikipedia on what a community organizer does.
The irony is that John McCain is trying to appeal to the average middle class, the people who are suffering the most with the economic troubles, and these are the people that I listed above are the people who fought for them. It shows that the GOP doesn't understand, that they are out of touch, and not only that but they are the ELITE!!!
Obama has been involved with the working class and has served their interest. The GOP confirmed it last night.
the gop was founded as the anti-slavery party
martin luther-king was a republican
all the original black senators were republicans
