Pew Research reported that in the United States, the white share of the population has been declining as Hispanic, Asian and black populations continue to grow. The shift displacing whites as the majority in the US is happening more quickly in some places than in others.
From 2000 to 2018, 109 counties in 22 states, from California to Kansas to North Carolina, went from majority white to majority nonwhite – that is, counties where non-Hispanic whites are no longer the majority https://t.co/FPgu2fx3Oc pic.twitter.com/7lsPdP6rhW

“From 2000 to 2018, 109 counties in 22 states, from California to Kansas to North Carolina, went from majority white to majority nonwhite,” Pew noted. That means counties where non-Hispanic whites are no longer the majority, according to a Pew Research Center analysis of Census Bureau data.
The analysis includes only counties with a minimum population of 10 000 in 2018. These counties represent 77 percent of the nation’s 3 142 counties and include 99 percent of the American population.
Overall, 293 US counties were majority non-white in 2018. Most of these counties are concentrated in California, the South and on the East Coast. Only a few are situated in the middle of the US.
Moreover, more majority white counties with large populations may see the same racial displacement phenomenon in coming years. Fairfax County, Virginia (total of 1,2 million), Pima County, Arizona (1 million), Milwaukee County, Wisconsin (948 000) and Cobb County, Georgia (757 000) currently have populations that are less than 52 percent white.
Last year, however, The Washington Post claimed that white displacement was “a myth”.
Corporate America’s campaign of white displacement has been forcing white vendors to implement ambitious minority supplier recruitment programs – from templates created by the Fortune 500 customer. They are required to report progress on racial quotas in excruciating detail and excuses are not accepted.
This has had the collateral effect of imposing burdensome compliance costs on productive whites. Anti-white racial preferences thus permeate the supply chains of virtually all Fortune 500 corporations in the US.
Social science research, public polling and other data consistently show a deep divide in America between how whites and nonwhites see racism.
American political pundit Pat Buchanan told journalist Laura Ingraham last year in an interview that whites were facing demographic danger: “This is the great issue of our time. And, the real question is whether Europe has the will and the capacity, and America has the capacity to halt the invasion of the countries until they change the character — political, social, racial, ethnic — character of the country entirely.”
He continued: “You cannot stop these sentiments of people who want to live together with their own and they want their borders protected.”
A few days earlier on his blog, he had expanded this notion of immigration: “The existential question, however, thus remains: How does the West, America included, stop the flood tide of migrants before it alters forever the political and demographic character of our nations and our civilization?”
Buchanan continued: “We are truly dealing here with an ideology of Western suicide. […] But on the mega-issue — the Third World invasion of the West — he is riding the great wave of the future, if the West is to have a future.”
Stephen Miller, one of Trump’s closest advisers, shares Buchanan’s concern about a America “under siege” by waves of “inassimilable” immigrants. Another Trump advisor, Michael Anton on Fox News said: “The United States has a huge heart. We’ve welcomed millions of people, including my ancestors, but we’ve got to have limits or we don’t have a country.”
Anton, Trump national security staffer, and author of The Flight 93 Election, has argued that the “ceaseless importation of Third World foreigners with no tradition of, taste for, or experience in liberty means that the electorate grows more left, more Democratic, less Republican, less republican, and less traditionally American with every cycle”.
White people constitute the majority of the US population still today, with a total of about 75 percent of the population. The non-Hispanic white population of the US is expected to fall below 50 percent by 2045.
In 2017, the American birth rate remained well below the replacement level needed – at least 2,1 children per woman so as not to experience population decreases – as White American births fell in all 50 states and the District of Columbia.
Among non-Hispanic white women, no states had a fertility rate above the replacement level. Among non-Hispanic black women, 12 states reached above the replacement level needed. Among Hispanic women, 29 states did.
Due to the aging and low birth rates among white people, deaths now outnumber births among white people in more than half the states in the country, the New York Times reported.
