A massive demographic upheaval in the United States – Book forecasts


Today’s selection — from delanceyplace.com:…. Brown is the New White by Steve Phillips.

Each day, the United States population increases by more than 8,000 people, and nearly 90 percent of that growth consists of people of color:

“People of color now comprise more than 37 percent of the U.S. population, greater than triple the 12 percent in 1965. The two fastest-growing groups have been Latinos and Asian Americans. In 1965 there were fewer than 9 million Latinos in the United States; by 2013 that number had soared to 54 million. During that same forty­-eight-year span, the Asian American population has grown from 2 mil­lion to more than 18 million people. …

    Surprise surprise !
    Hitler foolishly tried to genetically
    modify the human race…
    Today it is naturally happening
    for the benefit of mankind.
    Mixing of the DNA enhances
    the species ..Darwin reincarnate.
    Political unity still my dream.
    One people
    One nation
    One destiny
    As per LFSB dream some decades
    ago. Hope it is still the American Dream…dream on USA it’s free
    and freedom.

    With inequality still rising, the growing brown population makes no difference.

      Let’s hope this mix will be the future
      middle class USA so desperately need. The 1%ers still wield power
      on the 99%ers….Every empire has
      imploded …will the American empire
      be next…hope not.!
      Not long to go before a woman becomes next CIC.
      Am forever the optimist !
      Let’s see how the “wicked witch”
      cast her spell … chuckle chuckle
      and turn the frogs into a princes.
      Sorry cannot take Americans
      The alternative is even more scary !
      Quack quack🐧

    What does “progressive people of color” mean? Anyway, Asians are going to be the majority progressive people of color. When the American govt looked at the statistics and realized that Hispanics, though not a race, will be the majority demographic group in the US by 2050. The govt was not too keen on the “quality” of Hispanics that they were going to get, so in the past few years, the govt has been generously granting Asians visas in order to change this demographic shift. It remains to be seen how this change plays out.

    A look at interracial marriages in America shows that Oriental Asians and Whites have the highest rate of interracial marriages followed by non-Black Hispanics and Whites, although the percentage of Oriental Asians are smaller than this group of Hispanics.

    My husband recently had his DNA analyzed and found out that 47% of his DNA is of Nordic descent , 2% Native American, and 2 % Iberian Peninsula – Spain, Portugal, Andorra. The remaining percentages were British and Irish. His 2% Iberian DNA is technically Hispanic since Hispanics/Latin Americans are categorized as descendants of peoples from the Iberian Peninsula. I suspect many Americans DNA have similar ethnic markers.

    Phillips spoke to Street Roots about the book prior to his engagement with the Colour PAC Action Fund in Portland. We started by clarifying, for the purpose of his new book, what he defines as progressive:

    Steve Phillips: The definition of progressive is admittedly elusive. I felt the best data set are the exit polls. So I used the 2012 exit polls as data – both because it was after the “hope and change” enthusiasm had worn off, but also because President Obama had a record: UNIVERSAL HEALTH CARE; IMMIGRATION REFORM; EQUAL PAY FOR WOMEN; MARRIAGE EQUALITY.

    People voted for his record, so he had gone on the record and those were the elements. That’s why I define progressive on lines of universal health care, immigration reform, equal pay for women, marriage equality – that was an agenda that he was clear about and people voted for four more years of that. So that gives us the data set, so who wanted four more years of that is 81 percent of voters of colour and 39 percent of white voters. And when you apply those percentages to the entire eligible voter population in the country – that’s 51 percent of the country.

    That is the urgency of this book at this time. Which direction are we going to go? And to fuse a sense of urgency into the Democrats that this structural advantage can be very fleeting if they don’t invest heavily in it. – Street Roots News

    “This leads me to the contention that both race and gender are not inevitable and fixed categories; but rather historically constructed ones that are not created through biology as much as they are normalized through biological discourses.”
    – On the Edge of Empire: Race, Gender and the Making of B.C. by Adele Perry

    Whiteness is about political expediency NOT DNA

    Remember the West Indies cricket team to South Africa? Honorary Whites, they were?? How do they do dat – They were white because the white man said so!

    • De castro  On 04/30/2016 at 6:56 pm

      Sorry beg to differ…
      They were white because they wanted
      to be white (more acceptable) in white
      ruled SA…B4 Mandella.
      Did not Michael Jackson suffer this
      “Inferiority ” complex.
      Whiteness or Blackmess may not
      come from the DNA but it surely
      depends where you were “created”
      and by whom.
      If your parents were white and black
      you are not born Grey…
      You are of mixed race/DNA
      Bar China India our world will
      become mostly peoples of mixed
      races ..hopefully a better mix.
      A more “colourful” world.
      Mixing can only enhance our species
      improving our survival.
      Ways I see it

        Mixing of races is a “biological” fix.
        However mixing of culture will benefit mankind more.
        Religious beliefs the “stigmata”

        Religion has divided our world
        hopefully “culture” will unite it.
        The politics of Music,food,arts etc etc.

        Kamptan, your capacity to mislead the public is reaching epic proportions. The apartheid government, having to do business with certain non-white peoples like the Japanese gave a special status of “honorary whites” to particular groups. Nothing to do with anyone’s desire to be white. Many moons ago, I had a Chinese pen-friend from Port Elizabeth who was hoping that her people could be designated “honorary white” and not be discriminated against. She even wanted to know if I could do anything to help out the Ian Smith government in Rhodesia. But not for a moment did she not want to be Chinese. She wanted white privilege. Just like Gandhi for Indians. Michael Jackson, like so many others, basically had an inferiority complex. If he really wanted to be white he would have sung like Pat Boone and danced like Prince Phillip.

    Just let us remember that we are all Africans.

      DNA evidence cannot say much about nationality with any precision but keep on wasting your money, folks.


      • De castro  On 05/07/2016 at 4:41 pm

        Nice one
        Sing like pat Boone
        Dance like prince Philip
        Hey I like pat Boone !
        He sang Romantic songs.
        Prince Philip can do neither
        Sing or dance..ha ha !
        Neither can Charles ..chuckle chuckle

    Thinker: Thanks for helping out with de Castro – President Obama said that his Grandmother always said to let Fools speak, we must allow them to advertise their ignorance.

    The President was referring to political rallies – do NOT disrupt or interrupt them. But, reading stuff that de Castro writes here boils my blood ….. Let him speak …

    • De castro  On 05/08/2016 at 3:18 am

      Sarcasm is the lowest form of wit !
      GOL allows the freedom of expression
      so let our imagination wonder.
      My writings may not be as informed
      as others and my opinions may
      irritate others. So be it.
      However if the facts are
      given in disagreement I am
      humble enough to accept
      even apologise for my mistake.
      It is by expressing of opinions
      that we can learn by not repeating
      the mistakes in history.
      My opinion is not written in stone
      and is subject to change.
      Our world is changing
      Will change
      Must change

      Saying comes to mind
      Where ignorance is bliss..tiss
      folly to be wise.
      Que sera sera
      Lord kamtan

    • De castro  On 05/08/2016 at 3:26 am

      Ignorance teaches fools…
      Even fools also have opinions.

      We never stop learning…opinions
