I have visions of a cobwebbed Bill O'Reilly on Fox claiming the immigrants have destroyed the establishment and screaming 'pinhead' at the gay, atheist Latino GOP candidate Señor 'Che' Gonzalez.

No big deal, really. It's a multi-cultural nation after all.

Goodbye republican party! Except in the south and even that will be changed in time. Angry white folks are slowly fading into the sunset in the USA. That of course is one of the reasons why they are angry.

2012 was their last shot at the White House. They nominated the whitest guy they could find and he lost big time.

The Republican party used to be the party of the North, and the Democratic party that of the Old South. Over time that shifted as party platforms changed. Parties come and go.

This is old news - and the best reason to end affirmative action sooner rather than later. The sooner America gets out of the government sponsored discrimination business the better it will be for everyone.

" The Republican party used to be the party of the North, and the Democratic party that of the Old South. Over time that shifted as party platforms changed. "

The Democrat party has hit on a formula that will continue to win, as demographics turn the US into another 2nd world nation: Bribe voters with promises of free money. Like Benjamin Franklin said: " When the people find that they can vote themselves money, that will herald the end of the republic".

The Republican party that campaigns on responsible spending and limited government is indeed finished. In the future, it will have to turn into Democrat Party II, competing with the Democrats about more promises of bread and games for the ignorant masses. This is the way the Roman civilization ended, too.

The article talks about increasing numbers of mixed marriages, increasing numbers of Americans describing themselves as 'mixed race' - at last the first steps on the path to the realisation of the much-vaunted yet so far imaginary 'melting-pot', surely a reason to celebrate - and the thread degenerates into Rep vs Dem?

Very sad.

How true!

Buying votes with largesse.

Read a study a while back that showed children are better able to remember shades of colors than adults - probably because adults tend to memorize colors as simple words ("black," "orange") while children memorize the shade itself ("Obama," "Boehner").

The trend towards eschewing catch-all "color" or "racial" categories in favor of nuanced cultural descriptions bodes well. My son has been asked recently his heritage by his college applications, and he has been encouraged that they allow multiple answers.

It has been a pleasure to see America elect its first Hawaiian Oreo president, for example.

Bill never said anything racist about Latinos or Gays, not one time. He said, on many occasions that he supported LEGAL immigration and could totally understand why illegals enter into the states, he often said, if he were them, he would do the same thing. As for Gays, he often supported Gay adoption if the child cannot find an adequate home and instead of the child growing up in the system and no one wants the child, but you have a Gay couple that are financially stable and can provide and care for the child, then why not? I think he refers to pinheads that can't understand his message or are too myopic in their...ahem...personal viewpoints.

A shame indeed. I don't see why people play the democrat republican game, both parties are against the white man, just one a little more than the other.

When Mexican and Filipinos married, the result is usually more than 5 children. Mexicans and Filipinos, though an arch-rival in the world of boxing, are very compatible and really love each other a lot. In 2043, Mexican and Multi-racial (Mexican + Filipinos mixed blood) will comprise the majority in the state of California

Mexican alone has an average 4 children, compare to 2 for Whites. Even with Filipinos and other Asian group, the average children is 4, double than that of the Whites.

Big Deal.

This is not a big deal. Just a sign of how effective globalisation is. It changes nothing. The West will remain the West, and the East will continue playing catch up of our way of life, no matter what colour the people are, involved in either side of the developments.

This is the way the Roman civilization ended, too.

I thought it ended due to resources being stretched and the enemies closer to Rome becoming better organised and attacking the borders of the Empire? Enemies such as the Goths.

The Republicans have been messing with voting districts to tip the balance back in their favor. It didn't help.

They ultimately lost the presidency because they think their America is still dominated by the white male. Sure, they got an overwhelming majority of white men voting for them, but they are so narrow minded that they even made white women angry at them.

When will they wake up and see the world for what it is.

America is a great country, this is why millions and millions of poor, hungry tired thirsty boat people stumbled off the May Flower and said, Cool! And under populated part of the world! My guess same as what the white folk who hit pay dirt in Australia, New Zealand etc... Can we blame anybody for trying to get ahead in life??

Doesn't square at all with reality.

Barack Obama Never Had A Problem With White Voters

In the key Rust Belt states that pushed Obama to victory, the president out-performed his national average with white voters. Those numbers helps explain why Obama wiped out Mitt Romney in the Electoral College, despite a narrow lead in the popular vote.

Nationally, Obama won just 39% of the white vote, down from 43% in 2008. But in every Rust Belt battleground — Ohio, Wisconsin, Iowa, Pennsylvania, and Michigan — Obama performed well above average with white voters.

In Ohio, Obama won 41% of the white vote. In Wisconsin, an astounding 48%. In Iowa, he actually captured the white vote with 51% to Romney's 47%. In Michigan, it was 44%, and in Pennsylvania, it was 42%.

Native Americans are not white anyway. When US was founded as 13 states, it was a melting pot of Europeans. The melting pot has changed color due to the immigration from Asia, Latin America, Africa. The root cause of Romney loss was he could not chased the Latino votes. There is no problem for legitimate immigrants. However illegal should be discouraged due to domination of political landscape.

Lame that they plan to keep sorting the cattle by leather color in 2043.

Moving forward, the U.S. will become the first major post-industrial society in the world where minorities will be the majority

Hmmm, something is not right with this sentence.

Yeah. What they should have said was:

the U.S. will become the first major post-industrial society in the world where A FORMER MINORITY will be the majority

All the minorities aren't all going to swap places with the caucasians at the exact same time.
