US will be a nation of minorities by 2024 December 12, 2012

America is changing.  And it was obvious in this year’s election as the African American and Hispanic vote beat the majority of White vote (70% of it) to elect Barack Obama as the President. By 2024, it is projected to become a country of minorities, when the Whites will lose the majority status, if the current trends keep up.

United States will become a nation of minorities in 2043 when whites will cease to make up a majority of the population, theUS Census Bureau said on Wednesday.  In its first set of projections based on the 2010 census, the federal agency said the non-Hispanic white population is expected to peak in 2024 at 199.6 million in 2024 and then slowly decrease.

Other racial and ethnic groups will meanwhile keep growing.  Hispanics will double in numbers to 128.8 million in 2060, or nearly one in three US residents, as will Asians, to 34.4 million or 8.2 percent of the projected total population of 420.3 million. (Source)
