White is the New Black
First of all, this phenom actually seems to be a swinging back of the pendulum. Certainly before the country was "founded", the Native Americans (people of color) were the majority. And much later, a large part of the southwest of the US was inhabited by people who we now term Hispanics. Second, given this shift the conversation about a "post-racial" America will become more and more ridiculous. What is really happening is that we are all figuring out new worlds, new demos and new values and perhaps a new concept of race/cateogrization, overall. One thing is certain, watch for more and varied seats at the table to be demanded as time goes on given what is now the new "majority." But the real question is, given the new status, do you think white people will now have trouble getting a cab? LOL
Big media buzz today over the latest Census Bureau stats which show for that first time in U.S. history that white births are in the majority. Hispanics, Blacks and mixed races are said to be creating a new hue in the country. The general population weighs in with comments.

...Get use to us.....we will move into YOUR Neighborhoods !
We should stop counting. It should only really matter when you are picking out your outfit or if you need sunscreen.
I saw this story as soon as I woke up...flipping through stories on my phone... I knew there would be a few wingnuts upset about this, but I seriously thought that no one but the KKK would really care. How wrong was I.
