It finally happened. For the first time, of all the babies born in America, white babies were a minority.
For the year ending July, 2011, white babies tallied just 49.6% with the remaining 50.4% being those of colour whether Hispanic, black, Asian, native American or mixed. With the increasing popularity of mixed marriage and the influx of non-white immigrants and a somewhat higher, non-white reproductive rate, white America is slowly breeding itself out of existence. Crackers is gonna be hard to come by 'fore long.
But if the financial bastion of white America, a.k.a. corporate America, is any indication, they won't go down without a fight. One thing I suspect we'll see, and sooner rather than later, will be an effort by white America to recruit a non-white group to bolster its numbers. Who is the least worrisome, wealthiest and most attractive group to white America? Why, I'm thinking that'd be the Asians - Japanese, Chinese, Korean-Americans, the lot. And did I mention they're really good at math?
It won't be a matter of lowering walls for Asian-Americans. They're already pretty much down. The focus, I suspect, will be on raising walls to insulate White/Asian-America from the riff-raff. I think that white-America wants Asian-America in its camp at least as much out of fear of what the alternative would mean.
