Ethnic minorities now make up the majority of babies in the United States, official figures revealed today.

It is the first time that this has been the case and the change reflects a growing age divide between mostly white, older Americans and predominantly minority youths that could reshape government policies.

Preliminary census estimates also show the share of African-American households headed by women - made up of mostly single mothers - now exceeds African-American households with married couples, a sign of declining U.S. marriages overall but also continuing challenges for black youths without involved fathers.

The findings, based on the latest government data, offer a preview of final 2010 census results being released this summer that provide detailed breakdowns by age, race and householder relationships such as same-sex couples.

Demographers say the numbers provide the clearest confirmation yet of a changing social order, one in which racial and ethnic minorities will become the U.S. majority by the middle of the century.

Currently, non-Hispanic whites make up just under half of all three-year-olds, which is the youngest age group shown in the Census Bureau's October 2009 annual survey, its most recent.

In 1990, more than 60 per cent of children in that age group were white.

This is very disheartening. Just imagining what the future will be like makes me sick and fearful for the children in my family whom I love dearly. I myself am not even in my 20's yet, but will be in a few months.

What is the problem ? If we deport the Mexicans back to Mexico, it'll go down. Obama doesn't have that common sense.

I suppose the ethnic are the majority now in the USA, and whites are the minority of the 311M.

Globally, whites are the minority. China has 1.3B people, India has 1.1B, Indonesia has 237M, and all of Europe has 837M.

Whites have a slower birth rate than ethnics (why do we call them ethnics anyway?).

I'm an Ethnic Minority yet my parents are only able to make two kids(me and my sis) That's a bad stereotype. Plus I know a white lady who has seven kids.

The major problem IS the government refusing to enforce immigration laws. Not to mention the liberals who gladly hand over our country to non-whites and have no problem with European culture being wiped off the face of the earth.

We're talking about the stats here. Cultures reproducing at least enough to replace themselves is NOT a bad 'stereotype'. What's bad is the self-hate that whites have been indoctrinated with and the fact that we are supposed to buy into the idea that whites are the only ethnic group that do not have their own culture or heritage.

I would have an easier time with this disturbing people if the commentary was accompanied by discussion of culture, language. But to just be upset, I don't get it. If white people want more babies they should have them. I, as a white person, have trouble with the two sides of our face thing where we regularly tell young women that having a baby will destroy their world and then turn around and are suprised and upset when there are fewere white births.
My generation was told to wait. We, for the most part, waited. Now I know a ton of women who have had to resort to expensive medical intervention to have a child and others who haven't been able to even with intervention because they waited too long.
I think white people could stand to be less racist. I also think we don't really know what we want. Do we want our girls to grow up and get an advanced degree and wait until they meet the right guy and are financially stable to have kids or do we want them to get to business early enough to ensure large families?

I'm sorry, but when did this become the United States of the KKK?
Caucasians are not reproducing as quickly as other races, so how does that calculate out to equal anything other than what it is? I understand that immigration is an issue, but as another poster pointed out Caucasians are a global minority, and this is a country which is a melting pot of all the worlds races, so how is this information absurd?

I was specifically told by several ethnic group of races that they had learned to use the welfare system specifically to breed out the whites and that this was the only true way to get rid of us. i was actually kind of shocked in way, but then the more i thought about it if i had breed 100,000 women from everywhere on the planet, i could control the global gene pool

You seem to make it a white thing.

Have you not thought that other factors are involved?

Take Hispanics. Most are Catholics and Catholics don't believe in birth control. Wouldn't this belief lead to more pregnancies?

Europeans are oppressed on every level imaginable while non-Whites breed out of control. If things continue at this rate, we will indeed soon be nothing but a distant memory.

What is the ratio of working parents and non working parents of these children born?
Does the benefit system encourage more pregnancies?
Or is it the lack of sex education and birth control?
Which of these families are poor?
What education have these families attained?
All of these points are common in an expanding race.
In today's society, having babies of whatever ethnicity, is confounded with the moral fact that the wealthfare system has to cough up money to keep them alive.

My mother is Native American and has 7 living children. While she CERTAINLY doesn't fall into the immigrant cliche, as she is descended from the aboriginal Americans, she shares several traits with most immigrants that just may play a part in explaining why she bred indiscriminately: poverty and lack of education. When a person is well educated and is taught how to reason for themselves, they often will realize that having too many children not only places a heavy burden upon themselves, but also society as a whole when they live in a socialist country like America.
Personally, I applaud anyone who makes the conscious decision to breed responsibly. Anyone who has more children than they can support comfortably, even if it is only one, is committing child abuse, and usually becomes a parasite on the system, and usually passes that trait to all of their children, exponentially exacerbating the problem.
I just thought I'd use a person I care for as an example of someone unwittingly adding to the problem so I didn't get instantly labeled a racist for my statements.

Classy.

Naive? Hardly.
