War, it will be – sooner or later (probably sooner); even the media is beginning to admit the reality.
Why it matters: The U.S. faces two possible futures: A thriving nation that embraces its new demographic makeup, or an escalation of fighting, racism and xenophobia.
By the numbers: Since 2010, non-Hispanic white people have become the minority in 32 more U.S. counties — for a total of 372 counties, according to U.S. Census Bureau data. The trends are largely due to a rise in Hispanic and Asian immigrants as well as slightly higher birth rates among non-whites.
Next year, the entire under 18 population will be majority non-white, according to William Frey, a Brookings Institution demographer and author of “Diversity Explosion: How New Racial Demographics are Remaking America.”
In less than a decade, the population under 30 will be majority non-white.
The demographic shifts are already having an impact on our national identity, politics and the generational gap, according to sociologists and demographers who have studied the trends.
National identity: The U.S. has made significant strides toward structurally equal rights, but in practice, there’s still a long way to go.
The key part of this whatever it is article is: “an escalation of fighting, racism and xenophobia.” I strongly suspect the escalation will lead to heavy bombings of the larger cities. I don’t mean car bombs or crude IEDs. I mean B-52s doing what they do. I suspect a decent chance of nuclear conflict. High. Death. Toll.
Odds are, we’ll find out how this works within the next 10 to 15 years. Consider vacating the urban areas or any place with any high-value targets. Get away from the people.
