2/11    Whites to be minority in US by 2050: study - Yahoo! News:
        http://www.csua.org/u/kqm
        Obama can still get minority support after 2050 -- he'll be calling
        himself a white presidential candidate.
        \_ Minority or not plurality?
           \_ Non-plurality: 47%.
            \_ You don't know what plurality means do you?
               \_ Actually, I do, but I'm tired. Plurality at 47%, no majority.

        "I hope no one uses the term 'illegal immigrants' here today," said

        of status."

2/26    I have dual citizenship. If I leave US and enter country Z, is
        there a way I can make the immigration booth "stamp" both passports
        (not necessarily stamp, but electronically record) such that both
        countries know that I left US for country Z. Then, when I depart
        country Z and head back to US, only provide the US passport? I'd
        like to do this so country Z thinks that I am permanently residing

        http://www.nytimes.com/2010/08/30/us/politics/30orange.html
        \_ and the state is slowly turning conservative. Meg 2010!
           \_ We will see. Seems unlikely.
        \_ Yeah, because CA sure has a problem with not enough dems in power!
           If only dems had been running the state for the last 40 years!

        Hispanics do, are trumpeting their own write-in campaign because the
        Census by default counts them as white ... Ironically, part of the

9/14    Does anyone have the controversial book Bell Curve? I know
        it has the political incorrect [and perhaps flawed] data that
        shows certain race have higher IQ than other race and I'm
        wondering how smart Russians are relative to white Americans
        and East Orientals. I can't seem to Google for this information.

AFP Whites to be minority in US by 2050: study Mon Feb 11, 11:50 AM ET WASHINGTON (AFP) - Immigration will drive the population of the United States sharply upward between now and 2050, and will push whites into a minority, projections by the Pew Research Center showed Monday. kWTVvr83xETQI4Vvw 1eRTfow0ew5W0AA9k_/B=QE56uNGDJHg-/J=1202775405299888/A=4919452/R=0/* "If current trends continue, the population of the United States will rise to 438 million in 2050, from 296 million in 2005," an increase of nearly 50 percent, the study by the Washington-based think-tank said. More than 80 percent of the increase will be due to immigrants arriving in the country and their US-born children, who will make up nearly one in five Americans by 2050 compared with one in eight in 2005, it said. Whites, who currently make up around two-thirds of the US population, will become a minority (47 percent) by 2050, the report said. The Hispanic population, currently the largest minority group, will triple in size and double in percentage terms from 14 percent in 2005 to 29 percent in 2050, the report said. The Asian population will roughly double in percentage terms, from five percent to nine percent, while the black population will remain static at around 13 percent. The projections are based on trends over the past 50 years, during which legal and illegal immigration have played an increasing role in US population growth, the report said. From 1960 to 2005, new immigrants and their US-born descendants accounted for 51 percent of population increase, and for 58 percent from 1980 to 2005, the report said. But, the report warned, "possible future changes in immigration policy" could impact the projections. Illegal immigration has become a top issue in the race for the US presidency, especially among Republican candidates, most of whom favor of a crackdown.
