the ultimate minority-- or, 'quick, think of a new euphemism'

By Diogenes (articles ) | Jun 11, 2010

Non-white babies accounted for 48.6% of all the births in the United States between July 2008 and July 2009, the Census Bureau reports. That figure was up 1.8% from the previous year. If the trend continues, this year, for the first time, the majority of American newborns will be from racial groups classified as "non-white."

In other words, minorities will be the majority.

    It's interesting: when I point out to people that barrenness is not the path to the future (even on a secular, natural level), there is really nothing that they can, or do, say. But, of course, it is RELIGION which is disappearing from the face of the earth (we are told): not the secular, sterile mindset. Sure.
