Deaths exceeded births among non-Hispanic white Americans for the first time in at least a century, according to new census data, a benchmark that heralds profound demographic change.There was still a net increase in non-Hispanic white people because of, ironically, immigration. But by railing against immigrants, Republicans are pissing those white people off too.
These developments were unexpected.
The disparity between deaths and births in the year that ended last July surprised experts. They expected that the aging white population would eventually shrink, as it has done in many European countries, but not for another decade or so.So we're 10 years ahead of schedule of the extinction of the white race, or the "demographic winter" as the white supremacists see it. Boy will this give them reason to freak out even further! And you want more irony? Demographers speculate that the reason for the accelerated timeline is ... people have no money.
He attributed the precipitous shift in part to the recession [...]Republican policies are literally killing off their strongest supporters. The more they weaken the safety net, the harder it is for white seniors to survive. That's some serious fucking irony right there for you. If Republicans wanted to delay their extinction, they'd be for the best freakin' medical care for seniors possible, plus assorted goodies to keep them healthy and happy.
In other words, give everyone whatever health and diet plan they've got Antonin Scalia on to keep him eternally alive.
Between July 2011 and July 2012:
Asians: +530,000, 2.9 percent. 60 percent from immigration
Latinos: +1,100,000, 2.2 percent, just 24 percent from immigration
African Americans: +559,000, 1.3 percent
Whites: +175,000, 0.09 percent, ALL of that from immigration
Update: Fun with math! Last fiscal year, the population grew by 2.364 million among these four groups. (There are others, but weren't included in the story.) Whites made up just SEVEN percent of that total. And remember, those were all immigrant whites.
