Only 8 years sooner than previously estimated. How soon before street signs change from English to other languages too?

Stiletto, I`m not racist against whites. I don`t believe in a "master race". I`m not violent against whites, black, Asians, or any ethnicity. That is what makes my comment different from that of a racist person.

Some people just forget that the US was not a `white` country before Europeans invaded it...

It is just getting back to normal at the end of teh day.

octillion: ya i agree. i suppose my point may have gotten lost in the sarcasm. the world would be a much better place without a difference in race at all. and i don`t think it`d be a weird "unique like everyone else thing". our features would still have a lot of variety.

According to the Statistics they presented, 46 Percent of the Population will be White and 30 Percent will be Hispanic, unless their stats are wrong, that still indicates a White Majority.

Besides, who gives a Rat`s Ass, it will be Mexicans Married to White People Married to Black People, Married to Asian People. Thankfully we`ll actually have No Reason to be Racist because EVERYONE will have mixed heritage. Even now in the U.S. The White Population has a largely Mixed European Descent, few people are 100% English, or German or French or what ever.

America will still be populated by Americans.

This data probably doesn`t include the illegal immigrants. Unlike most of you, I live in Ontario, CA (SoCal) so I can go miles and miles and MILES and MILLLEES before I see another white person. I`ve gone a month before seeing one, probably more.

In response to whyaskwhy`s comment: I think it would be kinda nice to have one global race...although that would be creepy and kind of like "You are totally unique...just like everyone else." type thing. My dad also speaks about one super-currency that will dominate the world one day.

I have no problem with this under certain conditions. If this soaring minority population conforms to American culture, fine, I`m not racist, no problem here. Everyone was created equal. But if they try to change the face of America to reflect their own traditions, I`ve got a damn big problem. If you want to be an AMERICAN, come to America. But if you just want to be a Mexican, Arab, Asian, etc. that just happens to be permanently living in America, stay home. The US is the "melting pot" for a reason. All people melt into a single culture.

Also, does this mean that whites would get the benefits that come along with being a minority group (scholarships, clubs, etc.)? Somehow I doubt it. Double standard to the max.

what`s gonna happen when all the races have babies with each other and we can`t tell which race dominates? how will we victimize ourselves to blindly oppose eachothers` morality for personal gain then?

You`re not racist? Okay, how about I say the same thing, but about black people? Then is it racist? Of course it is. You`re racist against whites. At least be honest about it.

ok...
*for that comment on the first page...

"umm...yeah I live in Vermont. Over here, we are 97% white... soooo it would take a LOT of other races to make us the minority in this state!"

...about 5 people live in vermont, total. o_o

*for all the people crying about the language:

...the language has evolved and will continue to evolve. if you resist it that`s your own (stupid) choice. i suggest getting over it.

*concerning the future stats of america:

is everyone who isn`t black/white/asian/hispanic gonna die with all the baby boomers? i`m native and would prefer to live beyond the year `42. we don`t even get like a 1% "other"?
that being said, i`m puerto rican too. and plan on spreading puerto rican babies all over the country. and teaching them all spanish.

Where do they get these statistics from? Sorry, but I don`t buy into predictions about something that is 40 years from now by simply assuming current trends will continue. For all we know, white people could get really horny around 2020.

As for the language, the US doesn`t have a national language, and it probably never will. More and more people as a result will either have to deal and become bilingual, or be unable to effectively communicate with one another.

Wow I`m suprised so many people are only attracted to guys of a certain colour skin. I`ve dated guys of all types of skin colours and they were all FREAKING sexy.

I`ve gone out with a Native American guy, a Puero Rican Guy, a Philipino guy, an Indian guy, and Japanese guy who was pure eye candy but didnt speak a word of english (why did he leaaaave me????=[)

I just like guys okay.

It isn`t really about race, because race doesn`t really exist in humans.

Seriously - it`s just made up. There`s nothing in the biology, just some negligable differences that don`t deserve separate classifications.

It`s about self-identification, groupthink and nationality.

Which is a problem. The posters talking about assimilation are behind the times and missing the point - it`s about there being an increasing number of people who don`t assimilate and don`t want to. Hence the language issue, a dead giveaway. Immigrants change to match their new country and language is a key part of that. Conquerors require their new country to change to match them, and language is a key part of that too.

It`s a very clever way to conquer a country, much better than war.

White isn`t really a majority now...

i`ve been saying for years, everyones a minority, theres a lot of every race now-a-days...my high school was 40%black 40%white 15%hispanic 5%other...thats pretty evenly spread, especially with the growth of hispanics....

so quit with the affirmative action too!! seriously, dont take a `minority` when there`s a `majority` who`s better for the spot dang it!

All of you people who are saying they`re tired of seeing white people or Mexicans are not looking at the whole picture. It`s not the F**king color of someones skin that makes them who they are. I personally don`t give a flying v guitar what color skin someone has just as long as they don`t cause trouble. Some of you people on here are saying that you`re tired of looking everywhere and seeing white people? What do you know about those white people you see? Do you know what they do for a living? Do you know who`s life they have loved for? I`m not so sure you do. This goes equally for everyone else always.

I think it would be awesome if we get a sort of mixed language in the future that is a result of the close proximities of the many languages that will be spoken more and more profusely(is that a correct usage of the word?). That would be cool. Unlikely though...

Fools! All of you people don`t seem to understand it: There will still be more "white people" than any other group of people, all that will change is that if you add up all the other groups of people, they will combined be more than the white people. But of all races, caucasian will still be the most populous in america, until long after we are all dead.

Its all about signs! No. Signs will remain in English, you should speak English in America. I`m all for the melting pot, but in America, English is the primary language and staying the primary language. I understand its hard to learn a language, but its hard when no one understands you!

Race is all pretty fuzzy anyway. There`s more genetic diversification within one race than there is between races.
