The End of White America is now assured. The only question is the fate of the remnants. The lack of response by white Americans to their demonization as they decline as a percent of the population demonstrates their lack of concern with their fate.
It seems as if the West is dead in every way.
The rule of law is dead throughout the West. Democracy is a scam. There is oligarchic rule. Everything is done for organized interest groups. Nothing is done for the people. Putin just declared: “The West’s leading role is ending.” How right he is.
The Brookings Institution is not a racist white supremacist outfit. It is a neoliberal/neoconservative “think tank.” One of its members, William H. Frey, has authored a report, “Less than Half of U.S. Children Under 15 Are White, Census Shows,” based on the recently released 2018 U.S. Census Bureau report. The information in Frey’s article is fascinating. It shows a disappearing white population. https://www.brookings.edu/research/less-than-half-of-us-children-under-15-are-white-census-shows/
The number of white children, that is, the group of the next generation of parents, is not only declining relative to the populations of non-whites but also absolutely. During 2010-2018 the number of white children shrank by 2.2 million.
Overall, the white population of America has declined from 80 percent of the US population in 1980 to 60 percent in 2018.
The American middle class, which is largely white, bears the brunt of income taxation which means that white Americans bear the brunt of the cost of the welfare support systems.
The white middle class also bears the brunt through property taxes of the public school systems. Many middle class members pay again in private school tuition for the education of their children in safer and more ordered environments. The cost of university education is exorbitant. All of these costs are rising faster than middle class incomes, and this limits white procreation.
The decline of people of European descent as a percentage of the US population can only accelerate as the child-bearing ability of the white population evaporates.
The median age of Americans of European descent is 43.6 years. The median age of Hispanics is 29.5 years, and the median age of multiracial residents of the US is 20.7 years. Over the past seven years, Americans of European descent experienced an excess of deaths over births.
White political influence will decline more rapidly than the white percentage of the population as politicians pander to the rising majority. One wonders if the white minority will be given minority preferences.
Frey concludes his article:
“These demographic trends make plain that, as racially diverse younger generations become part of the labor force, tax base, and consumer base, the nation will need to balance these groups’ distinct interests and needs in areas such as education, family services, and affordable housing with the health and social support requirements of a large and faster growing older population that will be entering its post retirement years. Indeed, the youthful ‘minority white’ tipping point shown in the new census statistics needs to be duly noted. It has important implications for America’s future.”
