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.

GOP Blocks Equal Pay...again.
