Minority births have surpassed white births in the United States

1 post / 0 new

Somewhere, right-wing politico – and champion for White America – Pat Buchanan is hiding in a closet. According to new census data – for the first time ever – minority births have surpassed white births in the United States. The minority population rose to over 36% - and is now projected to surpass America’s white population by as early as 2040. This might explain the rush by Conservatives to pass radical anti-immigration laws that deny young Latinos an education and a job – as well as the rolling back of social safety net programs that lift minorities up giving them a shot at the American dream. White racists around the nation are seeing their privileged position in our economy under threat – and are working to keep surging minorities down.

The Death of the Middle Class was by Design...

Even in the face of the so-called Recovery, poverty and inequality are getting worse in our country, and more wealth and power is flowing straight to the top. According to Paul Buchheit over at Alternet, this is the end result of winner-take-all capitalism, and this destruction of the working class has all been by design.
