The Brookings Institute published an article citing a press release from the US Census Bureau detailing estimated population analysis of 2018 US census data.

For the first time, non-Hispanic white residents now make up less than half (49.9%) of the nation’s under age 15 population.

Well, it is here. Whites are quickly moving to make up less than half of the nation’s residents. The youth is where it begins.

Oh yeah, William also wrote this… fine piece. 

America is not full. Its future rests with young immigrants.

But the fact that white children under 15 have already become a minority in their age group puts an exclamation point on the fact that the nation’s diversity is percolating from the “bottom up” as the white population ages. This phenomenon, which is projected to continue, emphasizes the need for institutions that focus on children and young families to proactively accommodate the interests of more racially diverse populations, as the latter will be key players in the country’s demographic and economic future.

In 2018 the combined non-white population (13%ers, Asians, anchor babies, sleeper cells, the terminally beige, etc.) made up the dominant share of the youth. This makes Gen Z unsurprisingly the most DIVERSE generation. 

Not all sections of the country exhibit this trend thankfully. Just the border states for some reason... 


But it's spreading. Census stats reveal that 14 states (completely) and the District of Columbia contain a young white minority. This is led by states you'd never guess: California, Texas, Florida, and New York. Non-white populations continue to grow in majority white states as well. These include Connecticut, Washington, and Colorado. 

Declines in white children are countered by gains in other groups 

- William H. Frey, article author

Just as the Founding Fathers intended.

Remember the 2 milliion

This decline in white youth reflects lower white birth rates. But more importantly for the long term, it reflects an aging of the white population that has led to proportionately fewer women in their childbearing years. Census projections show white child losses for decades to come, with more young whites aging past 15 than being born or immigrating to the U.S. Thus it is the youthful gains of several other racial groups, especially Hispanics, Asians and persons identifying with two or more races that will serve as a counterweight to nationwide losses in young white populations. 

- William H. Frey, article author

Along with this, 28 states experienced overall child population loss, and all of them had white losses. 

WHITE CHILDREN DECLINED IN 46 STATES

America’s diverse youth and the future … These demographic trends make plain that, as racially diverse younger generations become part of the labor force, tax base, and consumer base, the nation will need to balance these groups’ distinct interests and needs in areas such as education, family services, and affordable housing with the health and social support requirements of a large and faster growing older population that will be entering its post retirement years. Indeed, the youthful “minority white” tipping point shown in the new census statistics needs to be duly noted. It has important implications for America’s future
