this reminds me of a radio segment that was on a few months ago about white flight...first they left the urban areas cuz the blacks/latinos/watever minorities were moving in and "ruining" their schools...now they're leaving the asian areas (i'm talking specifically about cupertino and lynnbrook high and i think another high school in palo alto) cuz asians are making the schools too "competitive" (read: too good)...  :D :D :D

that was probably gunn high in palo alto (the better one)...i went to paly, the still-good other one and it was mostly white but pretty heavily asian as well. i go to uc davis now, where the newly admitted class is like 43% asian or something. ASIAN PEOPLE ARE TAKING OVER THE WORLD! but damn, most of them could whip my ass in school...

U.S. minority population tops 100 million
Hispanics are largest and fastest growing ethnic population, census reports


ATLANTA - The number of people in the United States from ethnic or racial minorities has risen to more than 100 million, or around one third of the population, according to a U.S. Census Bureau report on Thursday.

The minorities figure stood at 100.7 million, up from 98.3 million a year earlier. Within that, the Hispanic population was the fastest growing at a rate of 3.4 percent between July 2005 and July 2006.

Hispanics were also the largest minority group, accounting for 44.3 million people on July 1, 2006, or 14.8 percent of the overall U.S. population which, according to census data released in October 2006, stood at more than 300 million.

The United States prides itself as a country built on successive waves of immigration, with the Statue of Liberty in New York a powerful symbol of the welcome to immigrants. But the country remains divided over the subject.

President Bush supports a comprehensive approach to immigration reform but an attempt to pass legislation failed last year.

Struggle over legislation
Members of a bipartisan group of senators are pushing to reach agreement on immigration reform that would offer some illegal immigrants a chance to become citizens.

Lawmakers have been struggling to come up with a formula providing tougher border and workplace enforcement while addressing the status of some 11 million illegal immigrants who live and work in the shadows.

“About one in three U.S. residents is a minority,” said Census Bureau Director Louis Kincannon.

“There are more minorities in this country today than there were people in the United States in 1910. In fact, the minority population in the U.S. is larger than the total population of all but 11 countries (on the planet).”

The black population grew 1.3 percent in the year from July 2005 and reached 40.2 million in 2006, the census said, while the number of native Hawaiians and members of other Pacific islander groups reached 1 million.

Asians were the second fastest-growing minority group at a rate of 3.2 percent, with their numbers standing at 14.9 million.

The population of non-Hispanic whites who indicated no other race grew 0.3 percent during the one-year period.

New York state had the largest black population with 3.5 million people, followed by Florida at 3 million and Texas at 2.9 million. The median age of African Americans was 30.1 years, lower than the 36.4 for the whole population.

Four states and the District of Columbia now have more minorities than members of the majority white population.

Hawaii has a population that was 75 percent minority in 2006. The District of Columbia stood at 68 percent, with New Mexico at 57 percent, California at 57 percent and Texas at 52.

According to the US Census, White Hispanics constitute roughly 45% of the Hispanic population.  So...  whites are still 72-75% of the US population.  At one time, Irish and Italians were not considered white.  Now, they blend into the great American melting pot.

Not that it should matter, people should be judged by their character and ability, not their race.  There is no reason for whites to panic, the white population isn't shrinking, we're just getting more multicultural.

I don't want to start a whole thing here, zack, but the Irish have ALWAYS been considered white, they were just viewed as outsider whites in predominantly Protestant USA since they were Catholics. I get your point, but let's not go overboard here. Same (to anyone with any intelligence) with Italians.

I'd just like to take the oppornunity to reiterate that Americans are way too hung up on race when ethnicity is the classification of any value. When rednecks or any other half-brained Americanized white person (as an example) discriminates against white Cubans or white Argentinians or even white Mexicans (yes, they do exist), they are not showing off their racism, they are showing off their intolerance of a perceived ethnic group (as opposed to racial).

The real racists are the governments and politicians in Latin American countries.  They refuse to help the poor and Indian blooded people.  They support illegal immigration to the U.S. because it gets rid of poorer, uneducated and mostly Indian people (btw, they are poor and uneducated because the government refuses to provide all but the most basic services-like roads and such).  Additionally, but sending their poor to the U.S., the poor make and send BILLIONS of dollars in REMITTANCES back to their countries.  This money makes its way back into the system and eventually makes it into the pockets of the corrupt, racist leaders.  America isn't the problem.  Latin American governments are the problem.  They are the intolerant, bigoted, racist, corrupt scum.  No wonder one million people a year cross the border illegally.  What a sucky place Mexico and those other countries would be to live in if you were the "wrong color".

Who is it that advocates the destruction of the black race , and poor people by systematically destroying the children before they leave the womb? >:(

Whomever it is, they have successfully convinced almost half the nation that the unborn poor, and unborn blacks aren't even worth the trouble and have no "life" worth living. :'(

That's actually not totally true.  The Irish were likened to monkeys.  Wasn't just because of being Catholic.    I once saw an "evolutionary" chart which was meant to be offensive and was done at the time many Irish were coming over.  The chart had a Protestant English looking gentleman in a suit, ..., Irish man... then a black man, then a monkey.  There were cartoons where the Irish were drawn to resemble ape like features.   

<---- Black, Irish, and Catholic.  LOL,

Nearly half US murder victims are black: report    
Aug 9 04:22 PM US/Eastern

    African-Americans are victims of nearly half the murders committed in the United States despite making up only 13 percent of the population, a report published Thursday showed.

Around 8,000 of nearly 16,500 murder victims in 2005, or 49 percent, were black Americans, according to the report released by the statistics bureau of the Department of Justice.

Broken down by gender, 6,800 black men were murdered in 2005, making up more than half the nearly 13,000 male murder victims.

Black women made up 35 percent, or 1,200, of the nearly 3,500 female homicide victims.

Young black men aged between 17 and 29 bore a disproportionately high burden in the grim statistics, making up 51 percent of African-American murder victims.

The percentage of white male murder victims in the same age group was 37 percent.

More than half the murders of blacks took place in densely populated urban areas.

Firearms were involved 77 percent of the time in homicides involving black people and around 60 percent of the time in murders of whites.

Most murder victims -- 93 percent of blacks and 85 percent of whites -- were killed by someone of their own race.

Gang violence was involved in around five percent of homicides with black victims against seven percent for white victims.

In percentage terms, whites were twice as likely to be killed by a current or former partner than blacks -- 12 percent of whites were murdered by a life partner against six percent of blacks.

Blacks were also at greater risk of rape or sexual assault than any other ethnic group except American Indians, the report showed.

DIVERSITY: Demographic change exposing fault lines

By Jonathan Tilove
Newhouse News Service
Published on: 08/13/07

Manassas Park, Va. —- According to new U.S. Census Bureau estimates, Manassas Park has crossed a demographic threshold. Largely because of a recent influx of Latino immigrants, this little city of 12,000 not far from the Bull Run battlefield is now less than half non-Hispanic white.

For Patricia Mauck, 25, who has lived here since she was 4, it's time for her family to beat its retreat.

"We're moving," Mauck, a white married mother of two small boys, told a reporter during the community's National Night Out event last week.

Why? "My issue is being a minority." She doesn't like it.    >:(

Culpeper, Va., here she comes.

But Rachel Kirkland, a white elementary school librarian who moved here with her husband and two young boys five years ago after they were priced out of a closer-in Washington suburb, is used to being in the minority. She's staying put. "I don't have a problem," she said. "I was raised in Southern California."

Manassas Park is in the balance between its Maucks and Kirklands, trying to keep its cool while facing rapid demographic change that, in one community after another, has produced increasingly acrimonious conflict over immigration.

The Census Bureau says nearly one in every 10 U.S. counties is now majority minority. Seven counties along with Manassas Park —- which as an independent city in Virginia is considered, for census purposes, the equivalent of a county —- crossed the majority-minority Rubicon between 2005 and 2006.

Replicating a pattern

In an analysis of the new estimates by demographer William Frey of the Brookings Institution and the University of Michigan, Manassas Park ranked third nationally in the decline of the white share of its population between 2000 and 2006.

Six of the 10 jurisdictions experiencing the biggest decline were suburbs of Atlanta, which changed mostly because of the movement of blacks —- both those leaving Atlanta proper and those arriving from other parts of the country.

Nationally, Frey said, blacks are replicating an earlier pattern of white suburbanization, while it appears Hispanics more often move to the suburbs to take the jobs, from landscaping to construction to retail, created in these booming communities. Northern Virginia has emerged as a central battleground over illegal immigration.

Manassas Park is located in Prince William County, even though, legally, it is a completely separate jurisdiction. In 1990, Prince William was 81 percent white; in 2000, 65 percent white; in 2006, 52 percent white. Frey's analysis put it 10th nationally in the decline of the white share of its population.

Last month, the Prince William Board of Supervisors unanimously approved a resolution requiring the county executive to determine in what ways the county can legally crack down on illegal immigration and deny public services to the undocumented.

Calls for a crackdown

That action prompted an immigrant organization known as Mexicans Without Borders (Mexicanos Sin Fronteras) to convene a series of mass meetings to plan a counteroffensive. It chose a one-week boycott of all Prince William businesses not owned by immigrants, beginning Aug. 27 and culminating in a protest march Sept. 2.

Greg Letiecq of neighboring Manassas City —- which has gone from 67 percent to 54 percent white since 2000 —- is a founder of Help Save Manassas, an organization leading the call for a crackdown on illegal immigrants in Prince William. Letiecq also writes a local politics blog, Black Velvet Bruce Li, that has pressed the immigration issue. He believes the boycott will backfire.

"It's going to outrage everyone," he said, though, he observed, many on his side of the issue may find it a welcome respite. "They will be able to go through a grocery store or Wal-Mart that doesn't look like it was plopped down in the middle of a some Central American country."

Neighborhood exodus

Both Maulk and Kirkland know plenty of white neighbors who have left —- headed toward, and into, West Virginia, which remains among the most homogeneously white states in the country. Both Maulk and Kirkland worry about severe overcrowding as single-family homes bulge with 10 or more occupants. Kirkland said there are 11 Hispanics living in the townhouse next door, but they are quieter than the Irish Catholic family of eight who preceded them. "They had a band," she said.

Among Night Out speakers was Manassas Park Vice Mayor Bryan Polk, 41, who has lived here since 1972. To him, anyone who ignores the public health and safety consequences of what is going on is "deceiving themselves."

But, he said in an interview, "we want to be prudent," and don't want to plunge the community into a costly, losing lawsuit.

"There are the pros and cons of diversity," he said.

"It's different than when I grew up," he added. He believes his children's generation is "reaching a point where they truly don't see race or ethnicity."

Just after the immigrant boycott and march, Manassas Park will hold its Latino Festival, begun a couple years ago to draw the community together.

"I don't see ethnic groups squaring off here," Polk said. But he knows there are longer-term residents uneasy about the pace of change. And, he said, "They're getting louder."

This is nothing new, it is called white flight.  I has been happening for a while.  Some leave because they "don't like being the minority" and others leave not because of the increased number of minorities, but because of the decline in the neighborhood (which makes housing more affordable).  A decline in the quality of a neighborhood is not the result of increased minorities to that neighborhood, but rather the decline is property/housing costs.

The question for the public and policymakers, the center asks, is whether it's in the national interest to have a much larger population and more densely settled country.

Heck, the blacks of urban Chicago fled downtown for the 'burbs when a wave of southern blacks moved in around the turn of the 20th century. This phenomenon isn't necessarily a racial one.

Funny, it's not the conservative rednecks that like to abort black babies.

No, they insist they be allowed to be born.  Being able to eat after they're alive though, not a real concern.

They should experience anxiety if they are illegal.  If they aren't, but are worried for their friends who are--whose fault is it?  No one made them illegally come into the US.  I am tired of people crying when they finally have to pay the consequences for their actions.  Your choice, your problem.

No, those things could have caused a great incentive, but in and of themselves they did not make anyone come to the US illegally.

Yes.  And, by the way, Mexicans do not live in "insane" poverty. (I would reserve that title for the people living in war torn and famine ravaged parts of Africa). Rather, there is more money to make up here than down there.

Not judge, but make an educated opinion.  Either way, they weren't made or forced to come up here.

Gun or no gun-they were not forced.  If anything they are as guilty for the state of their economy as their government is.  They have done nothing to try and reclaim their civil rights or to demand an fair and accountable government.

Not at all what I said.  Good job cramming a whole lot of words into my mouth.

Illegal? The land once belonged to them, and but for war, theft and illegal purchases the entire south/southwest (at least) would belong to Mexicans and other Latinos. Yes, we have "laws" that forbid their immigration w/o permission. Based on the history, are those laws just?
