Census Data: 78 Counties Shifted to Majority-Minority Since 2000

Curtis Tate, McClatchyDC, April 10, 2015

From the nation’s capital to South Florida to southern California, 78 counties across the country lost their white majority from 2000 to 2013, census data show.

According to a Pew Research Center analysis of the data, the counties are concentrated on the East Coast, the Southeast and in California, while relatively few are in the country’s middle sections.

A total of 266 majority-minority counties with at least 10,000 residents account for 31 percent of the U.S. population, according to Pew.

Minorities are now the majority in 19 of the 25 most populous counties in the country, according to Pew. Those now include Clark County, Nev., which surrounds Las Vegas; Broward County, Fla., which is Florida’s second-largest; and Sacramento County, Calif., home to the state’s capital.

Some of the shifts have been dramatic: Broward, which includes Fort Lauderdale, went from 58 percent white to 40 percent white. Mecklenberg County, which includes North Carolina’s largest city, Charlotte, went from 61 percent white to 49 percent white. Sacramento County dropped from 58 percent white to 47 percent white.

Montgomery and Charles County, Md., and Prince William County, Va., are densely populated parts of the Washington, D.C., metropolitan area, and they’re now majority-minority.

    Until not too long ago, I thought there was a chance to turn things around in this country but not any longer. Republicans sitting on their hands have really painted white people into a corner. It’s apparently going to have to get a lot worse before it gets better.

    • Rustler

      Many people feel the same way. When the Tea Party started a few years ago, it seemed like maybe it would evolve into a real nationalist movement. Conservatives have become more aware on immigration in the last few years, but they have not been able to do much to change the GOP. ALL of the GOP candidates for 2016 are pro-amnesty.

      • MooTieFighter

        2 party system is dead. they are all in bed together.

        • OHDeutschePolkaConfederate

          Yes they are. The Republicrat regime is anti-White and pro big business. They want the borders open so that there is a ready source of cheap, unskilled laborers who will not organize to form Unions, clamor for better wages and decent health care. Naive Hispanic and Asian arrivals willing to work like slaves is just what the Republicrat elites want.

          • American_cavalier

            The Republican Party will likely have to be broken up for a real American voice to be heard. Taking it over from the local level and securing enough delegates at a national convention to secede into a new party is the most likeliest method of securing that voice. Consider putting a motion forward at state and local conventions for disbarring money at primary elections. That would eliminate much of the corruption in GOP elections and help secure enough delegates to finish off these criminals who have captured the leadership making sure they don’t come back.

          • Jason Lewis

            Don’t break it up. Keep voting in primaries. We’ve flushed a ton of RINOs out already.

        • bilderbuster

          I’ve been telling anyone who will listen that Republicans and Conservative Inc. pose the most danger to the US as they have been buying time for the Anti-White traitors pretending that they can or will change things when their job has really been to stall the public until it’s too late.

    • listenupbub

      Come to Russia with me. It will soon be our “Motherland,” too.

      • OHDeutschePolkaConfederate

        It is tempting. The language barrier is a major one, though. I want to stay where my native tongue is the dominant language. I also want to stay in the land that is home. My German/Swedish forebears came here beginning in the 1850’s. Why should we European Americans abandon the land our forebears toiled to build? It is bad enough the certain cities and blocks of counties are now Africa in our Midst, and South America in our midst. I am committed to spending the rest of my days in rural, red county America. Appalachia is a stronghold of White culture, and remains largely White. Interest in European ethnic culture is experiencing a resurgence, and is not going away anytime soon in Appalachia.

        • listenupbub

          EDIT: I had not seen your comment earlier about secession, but I’ll leave my original comment anyways.

          The reason not to stay in America is that, in the worst case scenario, we could be like South Africa. I’m sure there are South Africans who want to not “abandon the land their forebears toiled to build.”

          Even if our minorities are more civil than blacks in SA, there is a massive loss of self-determination when you are a minority. Your culture is not represented on the TV your kids watch. Your kids cannot go to college without losing their culture and becoming outsiders. Your kids grow up with inferiority complexes. Your cultural identity becomes bound in your minority status, which inhibits healthy cultural evolution, as cultural evolution requires massive social capital.

          As an outsider, you cannot take advantage of all the social institutions such as universities, theatre, etc., and this restricts your ability to express your cognitive and creative capacities to their fullest extent. Your limited industry/economy is extremely unstable, and you have little other options in your mountain village. You will basically be the economic equivalent of the Amish. This is a depressing way to live.

          This is not the way we are supposed to live. Humans, as social animals, have evolved to have a people and work together with their people to determine our own fate. It is against our psychological health to be ruled over by a competing alien people who work against our interest.

          I refuse to hole up in a boring mountain village with a bunch of flannel-wearing hipster dinguses, listening to the same old “folksy” music, like some white version of a hispanic town. I want to have an exciting world at my fingertips, to enjoy the greatest that humanity offers. I want to move to Russia.

          • Sid Ishus

            I’m not sure Russia is the way you think it is, but good luck.

          • Jason Lewis

            We don’t need to abandon America. It’s not going to be like South Africa anytime soon. Moving perhaps out of areas like the southwest and southeast would be more prudent.

          • listenupbub

            Well, the SA part was not the crux of my argument.

            What I am saying is why do you want to keep a national identity that does not serve you? Our more brave ancestors forged their own nations for their own cultures and people. If a nation did not serve them, they broke off or revolted.

            I think that, rather than fighting a bloody war, we could potentially join into Russia. I think that Russia is an option.

          • puffdaddy

            I actually think the Ukraine might be more hospitable to America. I’m not interested in the KGB and Communism Lite. We already have that here.

          • Charles Martel

            We have an advantage over south Africa. Our non Asian minorities cant feed themselves if the power went down. The food stamp system went down on 10-12-13 in 16 states with massive chimp outs.

        • American_cavalier

          You have hit upon a zeitgeist. Appalachia will be a redoubt. You must begin organizing now. The people there must lay aside their differences and begin cooperating against all outsiders.

      • Mangosteen, $1000 chair

        How are you going about this? I have always thought the only chance for white survival is Eastern Europe (the parts influenced by Russia) and Russia and I am a huge Russophile so I’m ready to go!

        You might laugh at this, but Edgar Cayce said that out of Russia will come the hope of the world, and true freedom. Something to think about, if you believe in, or have any interest in, prophecies and the like.

        • InAFreeCountry

          Cayce thought Obama was going to be a Russian? LOL

          I mean they can’t be white can they? AMIRITE?

    • OHDeutschePolkaConfederate

      The only sensible answer for White racial realists is secession. Movements such as the Western Maryland statehood movement. Blocks of counties that form mostly White sections of states, such as the 5 Western Maryland counties, seceding to form new and independent states. Once a group of such newly independent states exists, succession from D. C. so as to not be subjected to the tyrannous multicult overlords who are refusing to close our borders.

      • Michigan Patriot

        Then the commies will nuke us !

      • Irish

        I am assuming Hagerstown , and possibly Fredrick are included in those counties. If so they’re bringing plenty of “diversity” with them.

      • InAFreeCountry

        Western Maryland has as much in common with the rest of the state as Northern Virginia has with the rest of Virginia. The Beltway has grown and taken a different character. I can understand why this would be popular.

      • American_cavalier

        That is only a temporary measure. Because of anti discrimination aka anti white organizing laws, the movement of vast numbers of organized non whites into atomized white communities will continue. Temporarily secession of counties might be beneficial but only in the sense of reducing corrupt central government men’s captured by Treason Inc. Medium term only densely populated white semi rural and small town counties offer hope. Long term only massive and most likely violent resistance like what occurred in Reconstruction South will end the tyranny.

      • Charles Martel

        The refugee resettlement program dumps Africans in white (high social currency) areas. The left is trying to target Trey Growdy’s district to dump Somalis in. See Refugee Resettlement Watch for details.

    • Mangosteen, $1000 chair

      The unvarnished, honest truth is: Nobody cedes power voluntarily (well except whites, apparently). This will not be reversed by the ballot box, politics, or anything of the sort. There’s only one way and nobody has the stomach for it. Not advocating anything, just stating a fact. If whites refuse to fight, they will be slaughtered, one way or another.

      • We are no different than any other species on Earth. We will fight, or we will die out. Personally I’m prepared to fight. I owe that much to my white ancestors, who sacrificed so much for me to even exist, let alone live in such unparalleled comfort and luxury compared to their own brutish and often very short lives.

        • Mangosteen, $1000 chair

          Absolutely agree with you, and sometimes I wish it would just get started already…the longer it simmers, the worse it gets for whites. But I also have small children and the sensible side hopes it holds off until they’re old enough to fight alongside.

          • I understand and feel similarly. Incidentally, I know the origin of your username and am not surprised to find a fellow…critic…posting here. We’re everywhere in the alt-right, it seems.

          There was a time when most of this nation was “Indian Country” and that didn’t stop our forefathers, so I’m going to stay and fight.
          Besides, I’m going to enjoy watching the traitors when it’s time for them to pay the piper.

      It is not going to get better.. If you have money you’ll be alright.

I have rental properties, investments & a business here.. (plus 3 Kids) But there’s loads of room Down Under for people of Western European ancestry in particular to find a new homeland..All this asinine talk about setting up a N.W. U.S. White homeland just makes me tired..I’d not move to that part of the States no matter what the incentive..And no folk-state would ever be sanctioned/allowed in our beloved, rapidly declining Country.

  • Race Heretic

    Ethnic replacement in progress.

    • LS Wight

      White genocide

    • Canadian Friend

      Race replacement is a form of genocide, it is a soft genocide, yes, but still a genocide, and the only race being replaced is the white race.

      And we whites are expected to celebrate our own demise…

      I’m too old to be part of any revolution and frankly I hate violent conflicts, but I hope one day white people will stand up and fight this race replacement program that is destroying our nations, our culture and our race.

      I can not believe white people have not yet started the revolution, what the hell will it take ???

        • OHDeutschePolkaConfederate

          We need a stronger political voice. In the 2012 Presidential election here stateside, only one party took an explicit pro-White stance. A3P. A3P was only on the ballot in three states. Tennessee, Colorado, New Jersey.

          • Mangosteen, $1000 chair

            Sorry to say but it’s too late for voting and politics as usual. They’re not going to hand it all back to us.

    • Charles Martel

      White flight is called ethnic cleansing when it happens to anyone else.

  • JohnEngelman

    I wish the advocates of diversity would explain how American citizens benefit from the influx of more non Asian minorities.

    • MooTieFighter

      They can’t. It’s why they resort to meaningless clichés.

      • JohnEngelman

        While trying to silence other points of view.

    • Manaphy

      They don’t benefit from Asian minorities either.

    • OHDeutschePolkaConfederate

      We don’t benefit that much from Asian immigration either. Poor Asian immigrants are willing to work for next to nothing. As far as violent crime, massage parlors with prostitution are not exactly the kind of thing America should be importing.

      • Charles Martel

        They are far less of a problem than any other minority. You forgot cheating o tests as their other habit.

    • listenupbub

      Answer: It helps fight white privilege. Once white privilege is gone, the world will be Heaven. Period. Don’t ask questions.

  • MooTieFighter

    Just sit back and watch these counties financially collapse, crime increase, and property values drop. Slowly corrupt minority politicians will seep in and suck the remaining life from these areas. Always plays out this way. Why can’t people understand it?

    • Canadian Friend

      What you describe is what the dictionary should have as the definition of multiculturalism, as everywhere it is tried the same happens.

      Multiculturalism and diversity are civilization destroyers, it is true
      in the USA, in England, in Norway, In France, in Australia

      yet we are bombarded from every sides with the lie that ” diversity is our greatest strenght”

      every tv show, every hollywood film, every news story has embedded in it the message that whites are bad but colored are good, and the more colored the better it is for everyone,

      but informed people know the exact opposite is true

      the truth is diversity is a gigantic weakness in any society where it is being tried, all the bad statistics go up with diversity from crime rates, rapes, drug selling, prostitution, street gangs, school dropouts, vandalism, houses losing value etc etc

  • Wyandotte County, Kansas (Kansas City, KS et al) is listed as a county that turned upside down in the last 13 years. That’s surprising to me because I always thought that it was majority non-white. Mainly a troublesome stew of black and Hispanic.

    • John Smith

      It’s sucked for far longer than that, but that was probably just within KCK city limits. It used to be places like Edwardsville, Bonner Springs and unincorporated areas were nearly all white, but I believe they’ve become significantly minority since 2000.

  • LS Wight

    This is white genocide and it’s Europe too! Intentionally changing the demographics of a nation to be non white and non Christian.

      the white Holocaust.

  • DJRicin

    Funny how those pushing for diversity themselves choose to remain in all-white (plus Asian) enclaves. The Clintons live in Chappaqua, New York, a town that is 97.5% white and Asian.

    Diversity for thee, not for me.

    • American Tax Payer

      china towns and little india’s started out as “all-white plus asians”. Are they still “white” when it’s full of asians and asian culture?

      • phillyguy

        No

        • American Tax Payer

          Ya never know these days. Some people consider asians to be white (natural allies/okay to breed with) and some people like me, do not.

          • DJRicin

            I do not consider them White in any way. Although, I will concede that I consider certain Asian groups to be less of an existential or cultural threat. Regardless…in the context of diversity Clinton et al are especially pushing for underrepresented minorities (blacks, Hispanics)–the two groups they most avoid.

          • American Tax Payer

            You can’t expect asians to come here and not be able to have families. Or, expect whites to breed with them or for the asians to breed out their asian blood via breeding with whites.

            The only way for asians to emigrate and still maintain themselves is more asian immigration which means less land, resources and opportunities for us.

      • Ringo Lennon

        No way. Huge differences between Asians and White people physically.

        • American Tax Payer

          There are huge differences in ethics and morals as well. There’s plenty of news to show a pattern for that and while you can always pluck out a few good ones, I’m still not willing to share my Town only to end up watching it turn into asia like so many other American Towns.

          Hopefully, not all White People will be so willing to hand over their Country and Culture to non-whites just because they’re alleged to be “model”. Check out the crime they commit and you’ll see that they’re not so “model” after all. They just hide it better than the others, that’s all. They’re not intelligent, they’re crafty.

        • LexiconD1

          Look at Kate + 8, on TV. Those kids are only a quarter Korean, and three fourths White, they don’t look white at all.

    • OHDeutschePolkaConfederate

      Exactly. Any mention of the crooked Ashkenazi bankers who earned the ire of not just the German people, but all of Central and Eastern Europe?? I think not. Genocide is wrong. Even so, the media should at least treat the Jewish question in Europe, on the eve of WWII, with honesty. Usurious money lending had a long history in the European Jewish community. This surely did not justify The Holocaust. It did justify the righteous anger felt by millions.

    • John Smith

      Many peoples died of genocide, yet they get only a fraction the attention. Even the other groups that died in the camps during WWII, like Gypsies, the feeble-minded and homos, are mentioned only in passing when mentioning the Holocaust.

      Though I hate the notion of another Civil War with Whites killing Whites, it may come down to this. Plenty of White Lefties would fight side by side with Negroes and other non-Whites I am afraid. Let us hope that non-violent secession can occur. Areas such as Western Maryland, Central PA, and Appalachian Ohio are not likely to be fought over by multicult types. There is little money in these areas. Leftists also hate these areas.

      • John Smith

        I’d have no problem with giving them what they deserve for their betrayal.

        You’re right about those areas, yet Leftists claim to be concerned with the working man and the impoverished and some of these areas are the poorest in the nation. Yet no one ever sees liberal whites taking much notice, like going to build houses and clinics or volunteer to teach like they would in Africa or the inner city. Poor whites especially aren’t “cool.”

        • Praise God for that. The last thing Appalachia needs is a massive, festering, multikult infection.

    Whether Hillary or Jeb Bush take office in 2017 will not matter. Neither will do anything to close the border. Most Repubs now are anything but Conservative on race issues. Hopefully, American Freedom Party, formerly A3P, will at least make the ballot in all 50 states, so White racial realists at least have a chance to vote for a candidate who represents our interests.

  • libertarian1234

    “From the nation’s capital to South Florida to southern California, 78 counties across the country lost their white majority from 2000 to 2013, census data show.”

    Yes, and add those to the ones which were minority majorities to begin before 2000 or at least minority dominated, and the picture is one where many urban areas are blue, while the surrounding counties are deep red.

    And if we look at a map of red and blue areas we will see that the entire country is overwhelmingly dominated by red with little spots of blue representing the urban areas.

    What that means is that if the dollar loses its status as the world’s reserve currency, and the GDP to Debt ratio continues to grow, and China and Russia continues to pull away member nations from the World Bank and the IMF in favor of the BRICS and AIIB, and more nations begin buying and selling oil in currency other than dollars, then the US economy will suffer a collapse as rapidly. ……but more disastrously….than in 2007-2008, which is bound to result in the restless natives in the blue urban areas fighting to the death over food and water.

    And, in the face of all this depressing news of our demise, keep in mind that it is the red area population that controls who goes into the blue areas and who comes out.

    If I were the leftist geeks now gleefully applauding our destruction, I don’t think I’d be celebrating just yet. In fact, if they’re smart, they’ll be looking for a good place to hide.
    This economic situation is DEFINITELY getting worse, and it has probably already reached a point where it is irreversible.

    • Indeed. How many gloating leftists have ever grown so much as a cucumber? They do not live where food is grown; do they expect those terrible red state flyover Christian redneck bigots to welcome a wave of starving, panicked urban flotsam into the countryside? More likely they’d find sabotaged roads, destroyed bridges, and country boys who grew up hunting deer and boar waiting for them in the trees.

      Liberal hubris is truly amazing.

    I can first hand testify to the abrupt, and awful changes in both metro D.C. & Broward County.

Virginia.. That’s where the largest numbers of people live in both States..Immigration has consequences, and Demographics are Destiny.

    • Mangosteen, $1000 chair

      The DC area makes me absolutely ill. My mother’s family is from there, actual natives of the area (which as you know, is rare nowadays as everyone there is from somewhere else). I started noticing it around 2000, it started in Arlington/Falls Church and spread like a cancer from there. There are ethnic/racial enclaves now, those two places are mostly Hispanic, Falls Church has a huge mosque, Annandale is nicknamed “Asiandale” because it’s literally ALL Korean. I remember when it used to be a nice, white area less than 20 years ago! Sterling was almost all white in the early 00’s, last time I was there in ’10, it was all foreign. When I was a kid, Prince William County was where all the working-class whites lived, same with Stafford. Now it’s all foreigners and blacks. Potomac Mills Mall is like a third world country and I remember when it was all white! Alexandria, Fairfax, Chantilly, Centreville, Manassas, Lorton, all gone. Ruined.

      I could go on and on, but it makes me terribly sad. I can never go home again, I can never take my kids to see where I lived, where I hung out, it’s all gone. Replaced by a taqueria or a Korean BBQ or God knows what. Whites have been ethnically cleansed from the area and nobody cares!! The only places where whites remain are rich enclaves like Clifton, Great Falls, and Old Town, and they’re all true-believing liberals. It’s sickening.
