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