In the mid-1800s, there was a mass migration to the United States.According to U.S. Census Bureau data, the "non-Hispanic white" population, which accounted for almost 90 percent of the population in 1950, at present accounts for around 60 percent.More alarming to many, was that the white population was losing its political hegemony. In the presidential election of 2008 Obama received only 45 percent of the white vote and made it to the presidency. He promised to reverse the march of history, as I wrote last year (The Daily Star, Dec. 7). He was going to rid America of illegal Hispanic migration, build a wall on the border with Mexico, stop Muslims from entering the United States, and, in return, invite white Europeans to come and settle in the United States. The fertility of the whites (less than 1.8 children per woman) is considerably lower than that of nonwhites, especially that of Hispanics (2.1 children per woman).The median age of the white population is around 42 years, compared with 32 for blacks and 27 for Hispanics. No significant group would be able to claim that America was made by it and for it exclusively, since America will be a country of minorities, a more balanced multicultural society, at least for the foreseeable future.
