What will be the largest minority in the United States in the year 2015?

Posted by Ria, 16 Apr 07

Racial and ethnic minorities are geographically dispersed throughout the United States, with Hispanics and Asians being the fastest growing minority groups in the United States as a whole.

What do you think may have caused such an increase in immigrants? Being Brazillian-Italian raised in America, I think am reason enough. I am a product of procreating immigrants :-)

Below are your votes to the poll Question:

Your perfect partner could be online right now...

What are you looking for?

Answer: European- Americans

Below is a graph to support the answer.

Given the growth rate above, it means that, the Non-Hispanic White (European- American according to our polls) population seems to be having the lowest growth rate hence the answer.

With such racial diversity in the US, one tends to wonder why there still is racism. And with most of the immigrants having relationships with native Americans, and procreating with native Americans, why is it that interracial relationships and moreso mixed race individuals are still being looked at with such prejudice?

Although racism has become increasingly salient in the context of the dramatic increase in racial and ethnic diversity in the United States, it’s my hope that in years to come, we will have to learn to live adventurously and courageously in human relationships, as we are learning to do in the realms of international relations and interplanetary space.

    sensible article but let me stray away from the main topic am utterly disgusted by the way westerners create words to suit their tastes and others tag along. i hate that phrase "minority" just as i hate the word 3rd world country they ridiculously have "4th world countries now)!. pretty soon they start identifying people that are not from the so called "majority group" as animalis or some crap like that, people need to start using their freedom of speech to correct nonsesical grammars/terms like this instead of uttering arrant nonsense or racial slurs against one another.

    Since my last post here on the 24th, Homesteader, you have made 3 more posts to me!!!!! Go read my post that I left earlier this evening for you. It's obvious you have a serious mental condition. Obsessive compulsive behavior disorder can be treated, seek treatment. Post away Homesteader, I'm done with you. You're hopeless (unless you get treatment). Go ahead, call me all the names you want. You forgot to call me a racist, prejudice, right wing extremest, radical, or white supremist to name a few. Just trying to help you out.

Fits your Personality better as You in the Year - 2009 . Still continue to talk of " Slaves and Slave Traders " Like you are Proud of the injustices of our past . Any Woman that will Date you from this site , must do so out of Pity for you or Moneys you pay up front for her time . In the United States of America , Slavery was Abolished long before you were Born . Grow up Bigot . You are Correct about one thing / You don't Understand and Our Intelligence level differences means that I would never be able to teach you any common sense / So I have Litteraly Wasted my time talking to You .

    Once again Homesteader I have to read your post again and again to decipher what the #$%& it is that you're trying to say. I have never ever seen anyone post such ignorant and incoherent comments as you do but at the same time claim to be such an expert. Then deride someone who posts an opposing view. Sometimes I think you must just be a troll trying to pick an argument with anyone. Thanks for posting the copyright date of your dictionary, as that is also the last time you opened it. I guess you know nothing about the issue of slavery either. I guess you don't know that the heritage of blacks also contains slave traders did you? Did you really think the slave trade was an exclusive white industry? Yes, I guess YOU probably did. While you have found your dictionary, look up the word moron. Don't feel bad if you feel that it describes you, hopefully I'll be around in 2015 to give you a hand. No why don't you go spend some time WITH YOUR WIFE!!!

    Okay , in order to simplify the point that I have been trying to tell you two - fearless crusader and glock about what I am seeing in your comments . Please allow me to use another word ; Forefather / which in the same dictionary as my prior comment States. 1: ancestor 2: a person of an earlier period and common heritage . Adam and Eve being the only two created by God on this Earth / means to me that we all came from them . glock when you finish telling Ladies all over the world that you know about your forefathers that had enslaved their forefathers and then ask them . Would you really like to date me knowing how my mind works . I read about this in government schools , but I do not believe what I learned . I just repeatedly wish to remind everyone in Worldwide Internet Blog Topic comments . Things that I shall never cease to write about . fearless crusader ; as much thread as you use / I will imagine that the Trade of Seamstress would make you a living . Are you trying to tell me that our forefathers came from another planet ? Come on Christian / Read your Bible and tell me where your forefathers were originally from . If Adam and Eve were not them . Or ask your Pastor , he might have an opinion . You truly May Learn something next Sunday . Or take your tin cup and stand on the corner with Bible inhand and repeat after me " Alms for the poor in the name of Jesus " Please you two fellas stick around to help with the Largest minority in 2015 . Thank you .

    My Websters Seventh New Collegiate Dictionary [ copyright 1972 ] lists Ancestor as " one from whom a person is decended " . Fearless Crusader , where else did we come from if they were the only two that God created ? and I don't really feel that your postings hold water any better than an old boat with holes in the bottom . glock ; if I had been alive 2 thousand years ago / I wood probably be able to inform you Who this person was . Duh . Meanwhile to stay on Topic , I feel that uneducated people will be the Largest minority in the year 2015 .

    Hey, he thought Adam was Black just because his neighbor said so, so he must think his neighbor was alive long enough ago to have seen Adam in the flesh. He also said that Adam coulnd't have been a Red Indian because he died before color television was invented...which makes about as much sensse as everything else he's said.

    Please inform us who this person is?? Who complained a few thousand years ago about poverty in his fellow man. I can remember recently when I spoke about the 1700's you questioned my right to speak about it because I wasn't there. Were you alive 2 thousand years ago?

    If indeed / We are all ancestors of Adam and Eve . We as a people would be immigrants through a long Heritage of Time from another Land called " The Garden of Eden . Living in a Country that is Broke and indebt to the world , with those who set the rules . Each living in the terrible poverity of a yearly payroll in Excess of a Quarter of a Million Dollars and I wonder if they pay their own Jet Fuel out of their Back pocket in the travels they make to contribute to the Poor of peoples around the World . With checks that they no longer have enough Gold stashed to cover their Penmanship . This being Sunday / I hear Preachers talking on my radio . Send your money to God ; in Jesus name - Here is my address is what they say . Let us be careful how much we complain as we know what happened to one , who also complained a few thousand years ago about Poverty in his fellow men and women .

    Hello: As a 5th or 6th generation Caucasian male descendant of immigrants of European descent, to the extent that I can, I apologize for those intolerant Americans that resort to racist, condescending comments because they are otherwise unable to express themselves. Please give me the consideration and respect I give you. I participate in this discussion to promote reasoned dialogue. I am not against immigration, I am against illegal immigration. As for colors, I only discriminate on one color, green - If you have the long green (money). it is all good, if you do not, it is not so good. I am for immigration for 4 reasons: I am for immigration for the very fact that the original writer pointed out in generality. The specifics are that a civilization, culture or country needs a couple fertility rate of 2.1 to maintain its population. And the US has less than a 2.1 couple fertility rate. If we don't allow immigrants to offset that decline, the American culture will decline. 2) Cultural diversity increases synergy. Different cultures think about things different ways. Sometimes another culture offers a perspective that is a better way to solve a problem. And, their may be scientific, intellectual, cultural or just plain trade skills that immigrants can bring to the USA to increase the overall competitiveness of the USA. 3) Genetic Diversity - Without departing from decorum may I just suggest you research hybrid vigor and the increasing detrimental effects of the lack of genetic diversity in all the worlds organisms, including humans. (Cloning could be the end of mankind yet) 4) I just like the idea of preserving the American Dream for legal immigrants so that they might come to our country and try to achieve a better life. All that having been said, in frightens and saddens me that these new immigrants do not blend into America as past immigrants did. I am sure my original American immigrant ancestors did not speak english, but they learned it. They learned it so well, that 5 or 6 generations later, I can't tell you what their original language was. Am I terrible to think immigrants to the USA should learn to speak english within a year or 2 of arrival? Somewhere along the way, my relatives and I, came to identify ourselves as Americans, rather than by some foreign affiliation. Am I wrong to want to hold onto my American heritage? For you folks of foreign descent and allegiance, how would feel if I went to your home countries and demanded that you become more American and give me handouts? Further I am concerned that various ethnic groups are sticking to themselves in unofficially designated communities. Immigrant behavior in the past caused American at one point in time to be referred to as the great "melting pot" The self-imposed segregation I see among the new immigrants causes me concern about the potential developing over time for political rifts to occur along cultural lines resulting in the Balkenization and breakup of the USA. Am I wrong for desiring to anticipate this problem and wanting to implement policies to prevent it? I love the American Culture i grew up in; Is it wrong for me to want to preserve my heritage? Now I have heard all of the heartfelt beliefs of how it is not fair that we Americans don't let everyone in. I have heard it argued from the perspective of that being the right thing to do as a god fearing people. I have heard it argued from the perspective of living up to promises of the Statue of Liberty beckoning the huddled masses. But there is something else to be considered; Whoever or however this world came to be, there are limited resources facing potentially unlimited human demand? If we just open the borders, their will be anarchy. If we let everyone in, our sewage systems will be overwhelmed, government resources will be strained to the point of breaking, the land will become crowded and fouled, and the resources will soon be exhausted? Are we really required to allow everyone to have everything we have out of some sense of fairness? Now some will say that I am being selfish. To them I paint this analogy. How would you feel if I came to your house, broke in and took your cell phone, ipod, flat screen TV, raided your refrigerator and drove off with your car? Would you feel justified in telling me I am wrong for doing that because those were your things and you need them? Would you feel it was unfair that you no longer had those things and had to replace them again? If you understand and agree with those sentiments on the micro level, then it is equally applicable in the macro level. Now, I know that many travesties involving separation of families, etc. occur. I empathize, but I do not see a solution, so long as people choose to break our immigration laws. And I freely admit that perfectly law abiding immigrants get a raw deal sometimes because of the issues with government bureaucracy. Any American Citizen will tell you that we also often get the shaft from our own bureaucracy. They truly are equal opportunity in their uncaring arrogance. Your can read more about my thoughts and other persons thoughts on this subject at : http://www.nowpublic.com/world/obama-sets-wh-immigration-reform-meeting-june-8-2009-no-amnesty-0 May I leave suggesting to those of you that can vote, that the politicians use all of these disagreements between us against us, to divide and conquer us while they steal us blind. The real battle should not be race v race, religion v religion, ethnicity v ethnicity, Republican v Democrat, nor Rich v poor. Stop letting them turn us against each other while they steal us blind. The real battle should be average voter v corrupt politician. I have written about issues i think we can all agree on here : http://donmashakschallengetouspoliticalparty.blogspot.com/ An introduction to understanding my thought process can be found here: http://bit.ly/fOsT7 That TEA Parties are about addressing the corruption and lack of accountability of our politicians, and you are welcome to attend regardless of race, creed or religion. If you are legally here in America and you want to get to know good, patriotic Americans please join us for the 4th of July Tea Parties. I think you will find many friends. If you come I think you will discover the things that we can agree upon far outnumber the things we disagree on. Stop listening to the crackpots, the corrupt politicians with an agenda, and major media and come and meet us one on one. May I respectfully suggest that the first time you come, that you don't come to cause trouble, nor push your agenda. Come to listen and get to know your real American Citizen neighbors. Come to let them get to know you and that you share common values and concerns. Make some friends. Make some allies. After 2 or 3 gatherings, people will be more comfortable and willing to listen to you as one of us, instead of one of them. I know it can be uncomfortable to meet new people, more so when you are from a different culture or race. But the longest journey, begins with a single footstep. From my interactions with Tea Partiers, they tend to give as they get. Be Respectful and you will tend to get respect back. The Tea Party movement is focusing on the issues that the majority of us can agree on. We are trying not to get involved in those issues that the politicians use to divide and conquer us.

    Hiltono5 im assuming your Native Indain American and very upset with all the Irish and Germans and English and Swedes or JaMaicans or Mexican or Cuban etc in this country, Originally Native American country, we all come from Adam Eve. All different people whether Irish or African American or Mexican or Phillipino or Chinese etc, were all immigrants, and built this country. And all have the same thing in common, Once agian, come from Adam and EVE if you believe in God and the good Book. If, just saying your anglo-saxon, it kinda sounds funny when your relatives were Immigrants, whether Legal or Illegal, and came here on a boat.

    The reason there are so many Hispanics in North America is because we have ALWAYS been here. Unless you are a Native American, those who we used to call American Indian, then you are a foreigner no matter how many generations your family has been here. Most Hispanics from North, Central, South America have some level of American Indian heritage in their blood because our ancestors were the natives of these lands. You can't get on this board and say that you are a "Real American" just because your ancestors came to our lands and Raped and enslaved all our natural resources. African Americans are here by no fault of their own so in reality I would say they have a higher right than any non-Native American to call themselves "Real Americans" if they choose to.

    To add to my comment above, I think I need to clarify suppressed economies. I'm really thinking of countries like Argentima, Latin America and Brazil, where there have hyperinflationary issues with their currency. In Other words, the currency has bottomed out. Many of these Hispanics have come to the U.S. in order to survive economically. Also, they are willing to work any job in order to take care of their families. We have many U.S. citizens whom feel it is beneath them to work in certain types of jobs. In Summary, Economics is the driving factor for the phenomenal growth of this ethnic group in the U.S.

    America continues to be the land of opportunity. I think the suppressed economies of many of these hispanic countries has been the catalyst to come to America. Also, I think U.S. immigration might have a more lenient policy toward hispanics compared to those from African countries.

    Kizzoom, it is disturbing to read that you do not like being White. You and everyone else has no control over what race they are. It is something you are born into. There is no such thing as a better race. I do believe in becoming a better person. Unfortunately, we live in a society that thrives on racial division and making one race envious of the other. You should be proud of your accomplishments as a person.

I also have another job where my boss speaks french all the time. But my boss and I do not always get along so well and when I tried to speak it to her she became contrary. French speakers are like that. Very impatient. lol What's a girl to do?

I am against all the Hispanics coming to America ILLegally It Is time to stop it. I don`t feel I should have to learn spanish. They should pass a law making it illegal to come to America if you can`t or Don`t want to learn English. I am tired of everyone catering to them in Spanish. If you want to live here learn English or go back to your Latin country or whatever planet you came from. They come here and take all of our Jobs an they are not American Citizens that is wrong!!!
