Minority Babies Are Now The Majority In The U.S.!

Times are a-changin’!!!

For the first time in the history of the US, census figures are revealing that MOST of babies being born in this country are non-whites, although minorities make up just about 37 percent of the U.S. population!!!

Estimates show that 50.4 percent of babies younger than a year-old are Hispanic, Black, Asian American or belonging to other minority groups.

Whoa!!!

That’s almost a full percentage point higher than the 49.5% of minorities up from the last count in April 2010 and researchers predict whites will be the absolute MINORITY in the U.S. by 2042!!

The figures have a lot to do with the largest immigration wave that started 40 years ago, and the aging of whites, who are by far the oldest peeps with a median age of 42, while the average age for Hispanics is under 28, and Blacks and Asians average out in their early 30s giving them MANY more years of baybay making!!

Interesting!

Although these are the current figures, researchers aren’t clear if the baby boom will continue to rise, as immigration to the U.S. is actually DECLINING.

Guess we'll have to wait and see till the next census!

Thoughts?!!!

Filed under: Gay Gay GayLove LineInspiration

This is EXACTLY what we like to hear!

According to state census data just released, the number of gay and lesbian households in California have grown SIX times faster than those of heterosexual spouses between 2000 and 2010, climbing 36.2% as compared to the latter's 5.7%!

William Frey, a demographer with the Brookings Institution in Washington, attributes this to the growing acceptance of the LGBT community, and explains:

Gay Adoption On The Rise In U.S.!

Filed under: Gay Gay GayBaby BlabberInspiration

gay adoption on the rise

This is exactly what we like to hear!

According to the latest census, gay adoptions in the U.S. are increasing, despite all the legal issues that gay couples must contend with in at least half of the states in the country.

Here's what executive director of the Evan B. Donaldson Adoption Institute Adam Pertman had to say about the trend:

"The trend line is absolutely straight up. It’s now a reality on the ground."

And here's what Moira Weir, the director of job and family services dept in Hamilton County, Ohio had to say about it:

"The reality is we really need foster and adoptive parents, and it doesn’t matter what the relationship is. If they can provide a safe and loving home for a child, isn’t that what we want?"

We 100% agree! More from Bryan Samuels, the commissioner for the Administration on Children, Youth, and Families:

"The child welfare system has come to understand that placing a child in a gay or lesbian family is no greater risk than placing them in a heterosexual family."

This is SO wonderful to hear! Let's keep those numbers going up, and let's keep providing children with loving and caring families!

EQUAL RIGHTS FOR ALL!

You Go, George Takei!

Filed under: Gay Gay GayPolitik

George Takei and his hubby Brad Altman star in a new PSA put out by the Equal Roots Coalition.

The happily married couple urge those filling out the census this year to acknowledge their same-sex relationships and marriages however they deem them, regardless of how the goverment views them.

To really pull in the Trekkie support, George dons his complete StarFleet uniform, which he still looks damn good in!

Check out the message above!
