No changes, whatsoever!

For the generation of Americans not yet old enough to drive, the demographic future has arrived.

For the first time, nonwhites and Hispanics were a majority of people under age 16 in 2019, an expected demographic shift that will grow over the coming decades, according to figures released by the U.S. Census Bureau on Thursday.

“We are browning from bottom up in our age structure,” said William Frey, a senior fellow at The Brookings Institution. “This is going to be a diversified century for the United States, and it’s beginning with this youngest generation.”

This is fantastic news! But, we’d better get those reparations paid sooner than later or else, you know…

Thank you, Unsung Hero!

Representative Emanuel Celler (D-NY, 1888-1981) was the longest-serving Congressman from New York (1924-1965). During his first term in the House, Celler was present when Congress completed legislating the highly restrictive “national origins” system limiting immigration to the United States to under 400,000 a year based on country of origin. The goal of the legislation was to keep America an Anglo-Saxon country. Celler spent the next 40 years seeking to overturn the Johnson Acts and finally did so in 1965 as a co-sponsor of the Hart-Celler Act.

He finally did so! The (positive!) results are showing up, belatedly.

I’m not sure if there’s a statue of the Great Hero anywhere in this dying country. If not, we need to build one quickly so the mob can tear it down and behead it. (Celler’s 1965 Act was not that LGBTP friendly – especially to the “Ps.” And, he was (finally!) cast from office for not being sufficiently feministic.

The start of the now torturous venture of deciphering the census numbers, HERE. Previously, in the last century, this information was kept in bound form in libraries, copious but straightforward. Around 2000, when the interwebs hit their useful stride, it was available in an easy to use format online. Now … dig. It’s a done deal; there’s no reason to try and hide it anymore.
