The Beginning of the End of a Civilization: More Whites Dying Than Being Born

New data from the US Census Bureau:

More white Americans are dying than being born for the first time in modern history—suggesting minorities and newcomers will play an important role in fueling the population growth America’s recovering economy needs to thrive.

The number of non-Hispanic white Americans who died in the year ended June 2012 exceeded the number who were born during that period by about 12,400, the first “natural decrease” for this group. (Source)

I’m sure its no better in Europe (probably worse). So globally, it would appear that whites are beginning a slow but steady decline.  Granted, the current decline is very modest and partly due to the economic slowdown. However, demographic trends are so hard to change, much like moving tectonic plates. Once they get going, they’re hard to reverse.

You’ll see those numbers accelerate in coming decades as the population ages and more white people kick the bucket.
