Minority babies set to become majority in 2010

Minority babies set to become majority in 2010

WASHINGTON – Minorities make up nearly half the children born in the U.S., part of a historic trend in which minorities are expected to become the U.S. majority over the next 40 years.

In fact, demographers say this year could be the “tipping point” when the number of babies born to minorities outnumbers that of babies born to whites.

The numbers are growing because immigration to the U.S. has boosted the number of Hispanic women in their prime childbearing years.

Minorities made up 48 percent of U.S. children born in 2008, the latest census estimates available, compared to 37 percent in 1990.

“Census projections suggest America may become a minority-majority country by the middle of the century. For America’s children, the future is now,” said Kenneth Johnson, a sociology professor at the University of New Hampshire who researched many of the racial trends in a paper being released Wednesday.

I just have to ask, at what point in time do they drop the term minority from their description?

When do WE, the WHITE Americans, demand the rights that ILLEGALS have been given and how do we go about becoming at least an EQUAL race in America?

The numbers are growing because immigration to the U.S. has boosted the number of Hispanic women in their prime childbearing years.

I am going to offend some folks with this one, but here’s the truth, they breed like cock roaches, and we keep right on letting the ILLEGALS in and allowing them to stock America up with an endless supply of anchor babies.

And the number of white women of prime childbearing age is on the decline, dropping 19 percent from 1990.

For example:

  • In Gwinnett County, Ga., an Atlanta suburb, the population has shifted from 16 percent minority in 1990 to 58 percent minority in 2008. The number of blacks and Hispanics nearly doubled, while the number of white young people stayed roughly the same.
  • The population of Dakota County, Neb., increased from 15 percent minority in 1990 to 54 percent in 2008, due largely to an influx of Hispanics who came looking for work in meatpacking and other labor.
  • In Lake County, Ind., a suburb of Chicago, the minority population grew from 43 percent in 1990 to 53 percent in 2008 as the number of white children declined, the number of blacks stayed stable and the number of Hispanics increased.
  • The 2008 census estimates used local records of births and deaths, tax records of people moving within the U.S., and census statistics on immigrants. The figures for “white” refer to those whites who are not of Hispanic ethnicity.

The 2008 census estimates used local records of births and deaths, tax records of people moving within the U.S., and census statistics on immigrants. The figures for “white” refer to those whites who are not of Hispanic ethnicity.

So, let me get this straight, I want to fully understand this, they have become the majority but they are still called the minority?

How can you be a minority if you’re a majority? Are they simply using overall demographics to describe these people or are they really a minority? I don’t see how you can be both if regional statistics are taken into consideration.

Reeling Mexico hopes travel deals bring back the tourists

Reeling Mexico hopes travel deals bring back the tourists

During a visit to San Diego in April, Pratik and Priti Chavda thought they’d slip over the border into Tijuana just to do a little shopping, have a quick meal and say they had made it to Mexico. But upon hearing the plan, staffers at their hotel sounded the alarm.

“Swine flu! Drug cartels! Don’t go!” Pratik Chavda, 32, recalls them warning.

Six months later, the Chicago couple have finally made it south of the border, where they’re enjoying a meal of grilled shrimp with a panoramic view of a golden sunset. And they didn’t even have to wait for a table.

What started out as a gangbuster year, with international tourist arrivals up about 6% in the first quarter, came to a screeching halt in late April when Mexico became the first to report an outbreak of the H1N1 virus. The flu scare, coupled with news accounts of gruesome drug-related violence, caused visitors to stay away in droves. From April to June, tourist arrivals plummeted by more than 19% over the previous year.

Reeling Mexico hopes travel deals bring back the tourists

I lived in El Paso many years ago. I did a lot of business on BOTH sides of the border. It was common to cross the border, go to Juarez and have dinner, drinks, do some shopping and so forth. But I’m talking about 25 or 30 years ago. I wouldn’t go to Juarez today for anyone.

I was in Nogales, AZ. about 22 years ago, a business trip, and a friend of mine wanted to go across the border to eat lunch. He claimed that there was a place he knew that had the best Chinese food you’ve ever eaten. He was RIGHT! It was delicious, and cheap too. We have several courses and drinks and spent about $6.00 each.

We were walking back to the border when the gunfire started. The Federales and some drug dealers were engaged in a running machine gun battle and it was coming our way. We broke into a dead run and were less than 50 yards from the border, screaming at the top of our lungs, “U.S. Citizens!” because INS and Border Patrol were in place, waiting for this gun battle to head their way and were in the process of shutting down that particular crossing.

Needless to say, we made it over the border, took cover behind some *Jersey Barriers* that were set up, and we waited. The Federales either caught the guys or killed them, the gun battle never made it that last city block to the border. And that was the last time I ever went to Mexico as a tourist.

It was also about the time I began to develop a serious attitude concerning border security and the HUGE influx of ILLEGALS we were seeing at the time. It was nothing compared to the surge of ILLEGALS today, but even 22 years ago, it was a concern for me. And sadly, nothing has been done, by ANY U.S. president to remedy this situation.

And then there’s this;

MEXICO CITY (Reuters) – Gunmen killed fifteen people on an isolated ranch in northern Mexico, including a prominent farmworker leader, in the latest grisly attack in an area overrun by drug gangs, local police said on Friday.

Margarito Montes, a well-known organizer of agricultural laborers, was among the bodies found riddled with bullets in trucks in the town of Hornos in southern Sonora, a state bordering the United States, a police spokesman said.

The cause of the crime was unknown but the killings had many of the hallmarks of hits by drug cartels, who often use automatic weapons to murder people in groups to send a message to rivals.

Mexican schools close as children are threatened

Mexican schools close as children are threatened

CIUDAD JUAREZ, Mexico (AP) – Fourth-grader Ricardo Ivan Ortega knows he is a target in this violent city. His school closed temporarily last month after an anonymous note demanded teachers hand over their year-end bonuses – or students would be kidnapped.

Ricardo has a plan.

“I will just hide,” the shy 9-year-old said in late November, waiting in the family car while his mother inquired when Luis Urias Elementary would reopen. “My mom told me not to get near the front gate, and if I need to, to run out of my classroom.”

Across Ciudad Juarez, parents and students are stricken by reports of kidnapping and extortion threats, starting with a sign that appeared Nov. 12 on the front door of another school, the Elena Garro kindergarten, demanding: “Either give us your bonuses, or we will start to kidnap the children.”

Police removed it before the children arrived.

Some speculate that cartels now are targeting schools to supplement income with the Mexican government’s crackdown on drug trafficking, much as they’ve already extorted businesses. Others say common criminals are trying to cash in on the fear that pervades border cities, where terrified residents are seeing ever more brutal murders – more than 1,300 so far this year in Ciudad Juarez.

Ya know, I DO have a bit of sympathy for these folks, they are too frightened to do ANYTHING, but they can’t stand up to the *bad guys*, their government took all the legal guns away years ago. The only ones with guns now are the outlaws, cartel guys and the Federales.

The Federales are scared too. The *bad guys* and the cartels have unlimited income and some really nice weaponry, lots of U.S. dollars, narco-dollars buys you nothing but the very best. Yeah, our dollars. Drug money, from the poison the cartels smuggle into America!

I wonder when the people of Mexico are going to grow a set and put an end to this BS? Oh, I know when, about the time the American electorate grows a set and dumps all the crooks in THIS nation. There’s only one good thing about our situation, our troops and police aren’t bought and paid for like the Federales are.

I also wonder, WHEN does this exact same violence spill over, openly, to U.S. border cities? And when does it come inland a ways? To major cities not ON the border? And just for giggles, what the hell is the U.S. government going to actually DO to stop ANY of this?

Yeah, that’s right. The exact same thing they’ve been doing, pretty much nothing!

I hope you’re locked and loaded, I hope you’re in possession of ammo and magazines, that is where it’s going to happen, that is where the disarmament of the American people begins. And soon we’ll be in exactly the same boat as Mexico, the military will have guns, the *bad guys* will have guns, and we’ll be wondering what the hell happened to America!
