Census shows US growth driven by minorities; white population falls under 60 percent

The good news for liberals is that the US is becoming more diverse ethnically and otherwise. The good news for conservatives is that many Hispanics are becoming the “new white ethnics,” comparable to the descendants of Southern and Eastern Europeans who started moving rightward in the aftermath of the 1960s cultural revolution.

The growth in the American population over the last decade was driven entirely by minority communities, according to new data released Thursday by the U.S. Census Bureau, as the number of white Americans declined for the first time since the nation’s founding.
