According to the U.S. census, America will become a nation in which white people are no longer that majority faster than people have expected. The Huffington Post reports:

The data shows a declining number of white adults and growing under-18 populations of Hispanics, Asians and other minorities. Nationwide, 67 percent of adults are white, but just 54 percent of children are.

“Were it not for Hispanics, the nation’s child population would have declined,” the report’s authors wrote. According to the analysis, Hispanics saw the largest absolute increase in children, at 4.8 million. The nation’s white population grew by only 1.2 percent, far lower than the national growth rate of 9.7 percent and well below the 43 percent growth rates for Hispanics and Asians.
