White births are now the minority in the U.S.5/17/2012
America has long known this moment was coming, and now it's official. According to the Census Bureau, white births are now the minority in the United States. Data released today shows that white births represented 49.6 percent of all births between July 2010 and July 2011, with births of minorities tipping the scale at 50.4 percent. Overall, white Americans are still the overwhelming majority (63.4 percent), but, as the population ages, it's expected their proportion will ebb rapidly.
