The multi-racial presence in America has changed dramatically and that is partly due to the fact that minority populations are continuing to grow at amazing rates, but the Census Bureau is saying that this increase has finally begun to slow down.

According to the Census Bureau, it looks like Whites will be the majority in America for one year longer than expected.

The country’s changing demographic mosaic has stark political implications, as seen in last month’s election that gave President Barack Obama a second term – in no small part due to his support from 78 percent of non-white voters.

The non-Hispanic white population, now at 197.8 million, is projected to peak at 200 million in 2024, before entering a steady decline as the massive baby boomer generation enters its golden years

As recently as 1960, whites made up 85 percent of the U.S., but that share dropped after a 1965 overhaul to U.S. immigration laws opened doors to waves of new immigrants from Mexico, Latin America and Asia.

By 2000, the percentage of U.S. whites had slid to 69 percent; and it now stands at roughly 64 percent.

“Moving forward, the U.S. will become the first major post-industrial society in the world where minorities will be the majority,”

Suarez-Orozco said. “With the white baby boomer population now leaving the work force, the most fundamental challenge will be connecting with this fast-growing U.S. group in terms of their education.”

The point when minority children become the majority is expected to arrive much sooner, 2019. Last year, racial and ethnic minorities became a majority among babies ages 1 and younger for the first time in U.S. history.

Change is coming, probably not for another 30 plus years, but it’s on the way. The real question becomes how will people handle race relations when Whites are the minority? Will racism still exist?
