Nation’s Youth Trending Toward Diverse Majority

Mario Garrett, Sign On San Diego, August 16, 2011

By 2050, minorities will account for 54 percent of the U.S. population. Today, those Americans who identify themselves as Hispanic, Black, Asian, American Indian/Alaskan Native, Native Hawaiian, Pacific Islander or mixed race account for 34 percent. Among the nation’s children, ethnic diversity will be even more pronounced–jumping from 44 percent today to 62 percent by 2050. It will no longer be accurate to refer to these ethnically diverse groups as minorities.

Immigration plays a leading role in both the growth and changing composition of the U.S. population. Immigration is the single reason why the United States has not aged as fast as most European countries.

The Pew Research Center finds that immigrants and their descendants will account for 82 percent of the projected population increase from 2005 to 2050. Nearly 20 percent of Americans will be foreign-born in 2050, compared with 12 percent in 2005, the Center projects. On the other side of the age continuum, by 2050 one in five people will be 65 and older and 59 percent of those will be white. That same year, when 19 million people will be age 85 and older, 67 percent of them will be white.

These changes signal that America is changing color while aging. Although older adults are becoming more diverse, for the next four decades, we will have a predominantly white older group, and a predominantly ethnically diverse younger group following. This seems to create social tension, especially when older adults express less tolerant views of an ethnically diverse population.

A popular view holds that older adults hold more narrow views than younger adults because they grew up in a less tolerant era. However, recent research shows that–even though they might have ethnic biases–older adults are less able to regulate associations. For older adults, implicit racial biases–which we all have–are likely to be acted upon.

    Seniors are a legally protected class along with other minorities and women. So seniors becoming a minority will mean double extra rights!

    The only concern is who is going to pay taxes to support the lower socio-economic groups in the manner they have become accustomed to as they grow in size with disproportionate social needs?

    “And older whites probably won’t like it, says professor.”

    Well, it would probably be a shock to the good professor if he were told that nobody is going to like it, especially since it increases the possibility of tribal internecine warfare by a factor of about 100.

    If the ongoing racial extravaganzas don’t give him a wee bit of warning of what we will be the norm shortly, I guess he’ll just have to wait and see for himself.

    being an older white, I don’t care so much about us. I care about my children, grandchildren and after them…… blacks, mexican indians (most of the illegals) may be fine people (?) but I question their ability to build and maintain civilizations………. If Aztec and Watusi are the future of America, then I’m glad I won’t be here.

  • Whiteness: Endangered Species

    For older adults, implicit racial biases—which we all have—are likely to be acted upon.”

    Or, for younger adults, implicit racial biases are not likely to be acted upon, causing severe psychotic disorders such as interracial dating and mongrel mulatto baby making.

    Older adults should spend all their money before they die, because if they pass it on to the younger generation, any that is left will be spent by their mulatto progeny on bling.

    It’s so bad now, folks, that you can’t invest in the future. Why contribute to anything that will be stolen and destroyed by America’s Diversity Majority?

    And the 2050 year is a trick. Whites will become minoritized in their own country long before that. We are at the end of a great idea, ruined by a great injustice: allowing blacks to stay in our America long past their usefulness.

    We are paying the price for our ancestors mistakes. They cursed us by bringing the blacks here, and they multiplied the curse by keeping them here.

    So how do you manage the curse?

    You pray for, learn about, and defend at all costs your last little bit of White Privilege.

    First step, DO NOTHING THAT HELPS BLACKS!

    Stop giving your church, your alma mater, and your community. Keep it all close to home. White Privilege is too fragile to leave to chance. Insure it with good decisions. Giving money to anybody who will use it to foster Diversity and help minorities is the worst decision you can make. Contributing to a hostile and dangerously anti-white America is treason against your own cause.

    The new giving equation: When we give, does it maintain or diminish our White Privilege?

    Transcend diversity, embrace Whiteness, beware and prepare, because you really do know what’s coming next… you see it in your worst nightmares…. and you are extremely right!

    Michelle Bachmann is on TV yelling about “Take our country back!”

    Rubbish. That’s a lie. She’ll never do what is needed to take it back. She’ll never abolish Affirmative Action and hold hearings into why there is no Congressional White Caucus.

    Once again, we see the “celebration” of the demise of the White race, and those who are chomping at the bit to get to a point where non-Whites are the majority (that “magical year: 2050).

    Unless something genetically changes within me, I will more than likely be dead by 2050, and if American society will be so third-worldish then, I am happy about that.

    The most frightening thing about that future is being an eldery White person who may become institutionalized for health reasons and depending upon blacks and hispanics, who are ecstatic with their majority status, for care. I know it’s nearly that bad now, but at least a majority of health administrators are still White.

    I think this trend mainly means that there will be no Social Security or similar programs for old people in 2050. Can you imagine a majority-minority working class supporting an idle, White geriatric leisure class?

    I have heard some rumblings from the liberal grapevine that the older population that has a larger white percentage is going to be the new whipping boy for the cultural Marxists. For example, they are looking to cut Medicare and raise the retirement age for SS benefits that have paid for by older, more white, taxpayers. However, Medicaid, money for schools and all varieties of social programs that primarily benefit, younger, non-taxpaying minorities will not be cut at all. And the left would love to bring the “death” inheritance tax back.

    In effect, the left will be attempting the largest wealth transfer in history from the whites to their favored minorities.

    I wouldn’t count on it, folks. Anybody who has been paying attention to the upcoming earth changes is going to realize that whites and Asians are going to be among the most likely to survive and start over. Check the Zetas newsletters – all free, and pretty darn accurate thus far….

    For older adults, implicit racial biases—which we all have—are likely to be acted upon.

    And for younger minorities, explicit racial biases are likely to be acted on. That’s why we’re seeing so much racial mob violence from urban yoofs.

    So what they are saying is that there will be an uptick in VIOLENCE against Seniors. Love this Orwellian statement:

    “For older adults, implicit racial biases—which we all have—are likely to be acted upon.”

    In other words, your housing, SSI,medicare, will be at risk if you show any ‘outward’ signs of racism.

    As one of those who will be over 85 in 2050, I worry. Even now, all you see are senior citizens being pushed around in wheel chairs by jamaican and haitian nurses who look angry or disinterested. Is this my future?

    I also believe that in the absence of whites in most places, latinos and blacks will be killing each other left and right. The asians will wall themselves off in gated communities. Isolated bands of white will exist in the hinterlands – and they will still be blamed for every wvil of the last 1000 years!

    Given my age now, most likely I won’t live to see 2050–but my White racially-aware children will still be in the prime of their lives at that time. And the way things are going, I don’t think they will be alone in their views, as I have most of my life.

    There will be blowback against this destructive anti-White racial agenda, and when that happens, this country won’t be the paradise for non-Whites that today they think it’s going to continue to be. Whites unfortunately have a long history of suffering quietly during adversity, but whenever they’ve been pushed too far, they do wake up and take charge, as they did beating back the Muslims at the gates of Vienna hundreds of years ago.

    And if you think Blacks are more dangerous than Whites, just wait until Whites have been pushed to their limit, and watch how they react. Enoch Powell had it right, and non-Whites are going to be in utter shock at how that once docile, accommodating White population suddenly started acting like those Spartan warriors in the film “300”–yet with a much different outcome. Keep the faith.

    Perhaps the whites will rise up and assert their superiority again. It would be against the plans of an orderly Universe to have this planet be over run with inferior genes which would lead to regression in the evolution of man toward a higher level of spirituality. Past advanced ancient civilization have fallen and others have risen over the course of mankind. For this country, its civilization is a continuation of Europe’s 5,000 year old civilization. Of course, this country’s advanced civilization will not survive once the whites become the minority. But the biggest threat is to prevent the dilution of the superior white gene pool. The young have been poisoned to regard breeding outside the race as non-racist and the reverse racist. This social engineering is done thorough the schools and media.

    I believe it has already been established that the magic 50% population number will be achieved long before 2050 It could happen by 2030. it is not far into the future it is coming sooner than you expect. Now is the time to act to get rid of the illegals not some point 20 years in the future Look at Brussels and what is going there as blacks have increased in numbers. Brutal crimes and white flight. Wake up American now

    Exactly. Churches have gone starkers! All civic organizations likewise.

    A few years back, I did the right thing (the WHITE thing), by returning some coin- change left at a register at the supermarket. I gave it to a checker, (white brain dead lady) , who did NOT thank me for my honesty, and dropped it immediately in a can labeled AID FOR HAITI. I could not help saying: “Well, I sure as hell did not want it to go for THAT: I hoped the person who lost it might have a chance to get it back.”

    That’s what your efforts get …aid for Haiti…

    I too, have thought of this, and if it came down to it, would take my own life in dignity, rather than to be put in their charge and be abused by them, or even affronted by their presence in my dotage.

    That’s NO way to end a good life! Better to go out of this world, face toward the sun, with my boots on!

    And I’m only 46, and in good, extremely active health! I’m just entering middle age, more fit than most 20 year olds, but I see the possibilities, and they are grim.

    No, I’d sooner starve. Or put a .45 in my mouth.

    Not that I’m a defeatist. But I would not condescend to be tended to (and pissed on) by Third Worlders who hate me.

    What is this fantasy that the United States will exist in 50 years after following the same patterns of today. The crash is coming sooner than later and all of these 50 years projections will look pretty silly.

  • Bill Harzia

    Legislation may soon be passed that makes it possible to kill off old folks to preserve their “dignity” or “prevent needless suffering.” Think Terry Schiavo.

    If people lose hope, they may decide to make their deaths mean something, to strike a final blow against all those who have destroyed their lives.

    The only thing that may prevent a wave of geriatric suicide bombers is the widespread belief that suicide is a sin.

  • Dave

    Actually the minority of all minorities will be the anti racist whites. Because by then they will be redundant, unneeded, and probably beaten over like the rest of us. So I guess as much as I’m dreading the cloudy outcome for whites; there is always a silver lining to be had somewhere. At least us ‘knuckledraggers’ and ‘rednecks’ will be wide awake as what to expect.

    2050? How about in 10 to 20 years?

    Remember the baby boom generation is now retiring and in their mid 60’s. Time they will start dying off. The 60 and over generation of Whites are about 50% of the TOTAL White population! When they die off, there will be less than 20% total Whites left in America. There is no time left for Whites to take back their nations. NOW is the time.

    I am above 65 years and what I fear for is my kids, my grandkids who will have to “survive” in this hell on earth, called America. My grandkids will all be absorbed (forced) into the “rainbow” race. No more White genes left is the deliberate agenda of our enemy. We all fell for their lies to a certain extent and now we are paying for it through the willing genocide of our own stupidity and the “murder” of our young left behind.

    Yet, the churches are so worried about BLACK abortions and BLACK orphans? They have aided and abetted our demise. God will NEVER forgive them nor our enemies. That is my prayer.

  • California Was Once a Dream

    Yeah, I remember reading these predictions twenty-five or thirty years ago when California still was Great and had the fifth largest economy in the world.

    Secure the border! STOP the illogical and unethical importation of more third-world African, Hispanic, and Asian parasites! Encourage–through pro-White legislation–young White Americans (whose forefathers built this nation)to start families and adhere to the time-tested true Amercian virtues. And don’t make a show of the above. Do it immediately, furtively, and most sincerely.

    And if we absolutely must import immigrants, European immigrants have proven themselves to be assets, not blood-sucking leeches.

    I suggest that WE all do our work on the “down low”. Just support Whites, spend your money at White establishments, vote for Whites who truly support Whites, and do it all under the radar. And, once again, young White Americans–MAKE NEW WHITE BABIES!

  • Lakeview Senior

    I agree with most of the comments on this subject, especially #4, Whiteness who wrote about what our churches are doing to futher along the demise of Whites. Every summer our church asks us to buy backpacks for the underprivleged kids in our area who will be going back to school in September. The good ladies of the parish usually prompt us by listing the things we should buy to put into the backpacks. I was all set to buy one until I read the bulletin and it asked for hygene supplies such as “hair care products for ethnic hair.” I figure that these non-White minorites are already receiving enough from my tax dollars without adding any more goodies to them. Our church never talks about underprivliged White kids and their shoddy treatment by the Chicago Public School elites(mostly Black and Hispanic overlords running things)or how little attention is paid to those White kids whose paretns cannot afford to send to a parochial school such as our church provides. I pity these White kids growing up in what will surely become another 3rd world dung heap.

    When I was a Spanish language major in college one of my profs. nominated me for a Rotarian Graduate Scholarship which included a year’s study at a University in Buenos Aires.

    I passed the Spanish speaking and writing test with flying colors, my undergraduate grades were very good but unfortunately I didn’t pass the oral interview which included a question about whether I would participate in a civil rights march in the South; the year was 1965. I answered negatively and when asked why I stated that I wouldn’t support a group of people who spent most of their time idle and when not just hanging out were victimizing White people and each other.

    Too bad. I refused to lie.

    I am a young white and I will tell you, our instincts have not been diminished, only suffocated. We are told from a very early age to embrace all things non-white and whenever someone does something “racist”, we are taught to destroy them socially. We aren’t allowed to have pride, we aren’t allowed to even make notice of our race in any positive way, and we are expected to take the blame for the problems blacks and hispanics place upon themselves. It is brain washing, plain and simple.

    Many young whites see the writing on the wall and we realize the severe problems we face. We have learned to lie to make it in such an anti-white society. At the end of the day, I would say about 3 quarters of white youth are lost, but it is the remaining quarter of aware and thinking Euro-Americans who will be our future.

    The people who have an almost erotic fixation with the destruction of all things European will eat their words when they find themselves in a third world hell. It is easy for many upper class white liberals to support fashionably egalitarian ideas because it doesn’t go home with them, at least not right now.

    Whites who live with blacks (and are not absorbed into black culture) know better. People call us prejudice as they drive to their all white neighborhoods and leave us to the darkness, but we know.

    It will not be the whites in Oregon or South Dakota that save the European race, it will be the whites that have lived with and seen what most blacks do.

  • sbuffalonative

    The THEORY is that when whites become a minority, America will be a racial Utopia. The exact opposite will be true.

    Each racial group is going to be fighting for their share based on their own ‘historical injustice’ scale.

    There is going to be no peace in multiCULTural America’s future. Only anger, accusations, selfish, self-interest demands.

    “Younger Whites don’t like it, either. ”

    I agree. Children are born with the natural tendency to discriminate and identify by the very criteria required for survival. That is why so much propaganda is aimed at youth in the media and at school. They are being conditioned into accepting an environment that is actually dangerous to them and “tribal” survival, while minorities use all those same instincts to defeat whites with the blessing of our government and its bureaucracies.

    I see some signs that some young whites, the ones that don’t do drugs, are beginning to see through all the media and educational propaganda. They know whites are being targeted by flash mobs, etc. The Diversity programs at their schools have become so forceful and blatant that they illustrate the contrast of claim and reality. I think more are also beginning to feel the results of Protected Groups, and other academic selection rules, and how it is working to harm them. They seem to be more opened to hearing the other side of the argument. They aren’t missing website discussions such as Amren,either.

    ‘This seems to create social tension, especially when older adults express less tolerant views of an ethnically diverse population.’

    Since those ‘older white’ adults pay all the bills, I believe that should give them the right to not like any of this. People who take, without gratitude, from those, who worked a lifetime for retirement and end up trying to live on a thousand dollars or less and are taxed twice on the same dollars, so that those who didn’t work can have cell phones, cable/satellite TV, big ole shoes and jeans, and eat every day. The Bible said it best, “He who does not work, neither shall he eat.”

    I’m with #22.

    There won’t BE the same geographical United States in 2050 – probably not even in 2030. Hopefully there will be a large chunk that is right back at 90-plus-percent white, with Asians comprising most of the rest, and with no single ethnic group greater than 2%.

    In that new world, border control will be paramount, to protect against failing non-white neighbor states.

    “By 2050, minorities will account for 54 percent of the U.S. population. Today, those Americans who identify themselves as Hispanic, Black, Asian, American Indian/Alaskan Native, Native Hawaiian, Pacific Islander or mixed race account for 34 percent. Among the nation’s children, ethnic diversity will be even more pronounced—jumping from 44 percent today to 62 percent by 2050. It will no longer be accurate to refer to these ethnically diverse groups as minorities.”

    ***********************

    These projections and statistics are patently false. The non-White groups mentioned DO NOT, repeat DO NOT currently account for 34% of our population. They account for a FAR HIGHER PERCENTAGE. These “statistics” do not account for the at least 25,000,000 illegal aliens currently here. These illegals must be factored into the equation. If we add at least 25,000,000 non-Whites to the stats then non-Whites account for about 41% of our population – RIGHT NOW IN 2011! White people will be a minority in less than 15 years. They can take their 2050 nonsense and shove it where the sun don’t shine. This is just another attempt from our enemies, at making us think that we have more time than we really do. They’re trying to lull us into a false sense of security. Most of our people, I’m sorry to say can’t see more than a short period of time ahead, and our enemies take advantage of this lack of foresight and preparedness for the future. The media is instrumental in conditioning the minds of each succeeding generation of White kids to think only of the present, and to sacrifice whatever racial identity that they have – very little at this point in time – at the altar of diversity.

    The USA will evolve into an advanced police state, far beyond what it is today.Surveillance will be total. Even worse than that, in my opinion, is what I call the “de-aesthetic” quality of our lives then. Ugly street crime, deteriorated public spaces, poor nasty public discourse, hatred everywhere. The loss of the democratic consciousness – the sense that the governemnt does not respond to the popular will – will precede the most grevious loss, which is the sense of a permanent disconnection from an advanced culture. People formerly proud of themselves are to be replaced by migrants from disaster zones who of course don’t want to re-animate their wretched lives, but at the same time hate the USA (doesn’t everyone?) and don’t want to succeed since that would imply affirmation of the culture they have invaded. This dissociated, disaffected mass is going to zoom past the challenge of the Asian powers?

    The real tragedy of this is that it was brought about by deception and lies of a few traitors. If there would have been a referendum in 1965 it would be about 80% to 20% against this type of racial change.

    I am currently traveling in South America. This is my fourth time here. There are nice people and beautiful scenery. However non-Whites down here always ask me why in God’s name are we changing into another Latin American country. You guys were the ones with all the beautiful women. The one country in the W.Hemisphere not all f—-up.(They do not really think about Canada) They admire almost worship Whites. All television has White actors despite being a tiny part of the population of most (but not all) of the countries.

    They think we are insane! America represents to them almost a place of miracles. True there is a lot of anti-Gringo sentiment, but this is political not racial.when they talk to me I do not give them the truth of who and why destroyed our country what is the point, I do not know if they would believe me that the all powerful Gringo is so weak. They also sense of an all powerful China will be worse for them than the Gringos.
