    WASHINGTON — Demographers sifting through new population counts released on Thursday by the Census Bureau say the data bring a pattern into sharper focus: Young Americans are far less white than older generations, a shift that demographers say creates a culture gap with far-reaching political and social consequences.

    Mississippi, Virginia, New Jersey and Louisiana all had declines in their populations of white residents ages 18 and under, according to the bureau’s first detailed report on the 2010 Census.

    That drove declines in the overall white population for the decade in three of the four states. Only Virginia, whose northern suburbs have been growing fast, had a rise.

    Growth in the number of white youths slowed sharply in the 1990s, up by just 1 percent in the decade, as the number of white women of childbearing age fell, according to Kenneth M. Johnson, a demographer at the University of New Hampshire.

    More recently, it has dipped into a decline. The number of whites under the age of 20 fell by 6 percent between 2000 and 2008, Mr. Johnson said, citing countrywide census estimates.

    Instead, growth has come from minorities, particularly Hispanics, as more Latino women enter their childbearing years. Blacks, Asians and Hispanics accounted for about 79 percent of the national population growth between 2000 and 2009, Mr. Johnson said.

    The result has been a changed American landscape, with whites now a minority of the youth population in 10 states, including Arizona, where tensions over immigration have flared, said William H. Frey, a demographer at the Brookings Institution.

    “This is a huge demographic transformation,” Mr. Frey said. “A cultural generation gap is emerging.”

    The growing divide between a diverse young population and an aging white population raises some potentially tricky policy questions. Will older whites be willing to allocate money to educate a younger generation that looks less like their own children than ever before? How will a diverse young generation handle growing needs for aging whites?

    The rapid change has infused political debates, and they have been noisiest in the states with the largest gaps.

    "In contrast, the number of mixed-race children doubled, Hispanic children doubled, and Asian children were up by more than two-thirds, according to Mr. Johnson."

    I am guessing the black pop stayed the same so it wasn't worth mentioning...

    less white does not mean more black...or less discrimination/racism.

    My cultural geography prof. said it took Italians 100 yrs to become "white" so I am sure most of the people mentioned in the quote will be granted "white" status someday if they look/act right, esp. lations.

    Here's a REAL article that actually tells the truth of whats been on the docket....LOL....smh....from the book Brazil: Mixture Or Massacre.....you'll find it interesting compared to the illusionary garbage:

    The illegal invading white populations in the United States and in Brazil faced the same problem at the end of the 19th century. Both had a large African population as slavery ended. They worried about what to do with these Africans. The two elites created two different approaches to their "problem."

    The United States chose to get rid of the "negro problems" by segregation, overt segregation. Brazil (and other "Latin" American countries) chose absorption or assimilation of the African into the European population, with certain limits. Neither could conceive of the notion of cultural or ethnic democracy. Neither recognized or respected African people of African culture as legitimate.

    In 1914, Theodore Roosevelt wrote an article in a popular magazine describing what he had seen and heard in Brazil.

    He was told the following by one observer, "Of course the presence of the Negro is the real problem, and a very serious problem, both in your country, the United States, and in mine, Brazil. Slavery was an intolerable method of solving the problem, and had to be abolished. But the problem itself remained, in the presence of the Negro...

    "Now come the necessity to devise some method of dealing with it. You of the United States are keeping the blacks as an entirely separate element, and you are not treating them in a way that fosters their self-respect. They will remain a menacing element in your civilization, permanent, and perhaps even after a while a growing element. With us the question tends to disappear and become absorbed through mixing."

    They CONVIENTLY don't tell that to you.....:em3700:

    If we look at the genetic makeup of blacks in Brazil and in American comparatively, they either will be close or the same..the admixture is the same whether you chose or want to believe it.. they've just fool you all (once again..lol) with terminology...

    so much for being ''conscious''..:qqb009:
