White Americans no longer a majority by 2042

WASHINGTON - White people will no longer make up a majority of Americans by 2042, according to new government projections. That's eight years sooner than previous estimates, made in 2004.
The U.S. has been growing more diverse for decades, but the process has sped up through immigration and higher birth rates among minority residents, especially Hispanics.
It is also growing older.
"The white population is older and very much centered around the aging baby boomers who are well past their high fertility years," said William Frey, a demographer at the Brookings Institution, a Washington think tank. "The future of America is epitomized by the young people today. They are basically the melting pot we are going to see in the future."
Is this the right course for the United States? Do white Americans feel comfortable with becoming minorities in their county? How will this affect American society? Will it destabilize it? Will it pacify the American military juggernaut and the foreign policy that guides it? Perhaps noting will happen at all and it will be politics as usual.
What should be noted here is that it is uncontrolled immigration that is changing American society. The United States, like Canada, has lost control of its borders and the evidence for this is clear. Black Americans used to be the second largest racial group in the United States. Now they are third being surpassed by non-white Hispanics due in large part to illegal immigration from South America, predominately Mexico exporting it's surplus population to the U.S. In Canada, Black Canadians (not to be confused with African-Canadians) and First Nations Peoples were the second and third largest racial groups. Both are now surpassed by Asians and South Asians because of mass immigration.
Canada, in fact most white majority societies, is becoming a white minority society. Canada, as is the United Kingdom, is becoming more Asian whereas the Untied States is becoming more Hispanic. Whites are on the fast track to becoming minorities in countries where they once constituted the majority. Is this a good thing? Do the white majorities in these countries have no say in the demographic changes that are occurring in their countries? Whites are already a minority in the global village. Is it reasonable to render them minorities in every country in the world? Is it unreasonable to allow whites in countries where they are the majority to shape society where they stay the majority?
Immigration is not only about nation building and populating vacant lands. It is also about population replacement. The European component of North America is being replaced by Hispanics in the United States and Asians in Canada due largely to mass immigration. A public discussion is needed to address this issue. Do we really want this to happen? I, for one, am opposed to an immigration policy that is more akin to neo-colonialism than it is with nation building and this is the immigration system Canada currently has. Because of mass immigration Toronto and Vancouver are increasingly becoming less recognizable as culturally Canadian cities and more so as immigrant, mostly Asian, cities. To be more blunt Toronto and Vancouver are becoming Asian cities on Canadian soil. Within a generation Toronto went from majority white/Canadian born to minority white/foreign born. How is this a good thing and why should we continue to allow this unchallenged?
Canadian demography is being altered in ways many Canadian are uncomfortable with and disapprove of yet they have no means to voice their opinion. It is time for a national discussion on the effects mass immigration is having on Canadian society and its demographic future.
The demographic future Canada and the United States face is not inevitable. We can change it but we must speak up.
