The Census Bureau has done some number crunching and found that white births are no longer a majority in the United States.
Hispanics, blacks, Asians and other minorities accounted for 50.4% of births in the U.S. in 2011. This group also accounts for 49.7% of children under the age of 5, and more than half of the 4 million kids under 1.
Exciting news, but not all that surprising if you read my earlier post The Next Generation Name Game. What will be quite a shocker is the impact this new diverse group will have on education, politics and the economy.
Education is key to the success of this diverse generation and the success of our great country. One out of every three Latinos does not graduate high-school, an alarming number when you consider the growing number of Hispanics in the U.S. Everybody deserves and needs an education. It’s the best way to grow, prosper, and become productive members of society.
So, in some ways this makes the minority now the majority and vice versa. A little confusing, huh? Here’s an idea, let’s just call everybody an American.
