Texas Case Study – A White Minority Reality
“Whites will be a minority in 20XX” is something that you stumble upon from time to time when you listen to or read demographic related news or if you read about immigration online.
This is a trend that we see in all Western countries with an open border policy, and what was regarded as a “neo-nazi conspiracy theory” is today widely acknowledged among many official governmental institutions. This is especially the case in countries such as the U.S. where it is still legal and not so controversial to talk about race or to make statistics relevant to demographic trends among the population.
While it is troublesome to know that whites are on the way of becoming a minority on a national level, many forget that whites are already a minority depending on where you look.
For example, regarding the U.S., whites are already a minority in certain states, which are ironically sometimes referred to as “majority-minority” states. According to the U.S. Census Bureau, whites are now (apart from Hawaii) a minority in New Mexico, California, Nevada and Texas, which will be the showcase example in this article. The reason we chose Texas for this case study is not only because the demographic change is evident in that area, but also because Texas is generally perceived as being a quite traditional, Christian and Republican state of the U.S.
A closer look at Texas demographic statistics
Before the The Immigration and Nationality Act of 1965
According to the Census Bureau, 87.4% identified themselves as white in 1960, five years prior to the The Immigration and Nationality Act of 1965. Sometimes Hispanics or other mixed raced non-whites can be included into the “white category” whenever you look at US statistics, but even if some Hispanics were to be included into that statistics it is clear that the white population undoubtedly constituted the majority of the population in the state of Texas. This was before the multicultural era and immigration act imposed in 1965 so it makes sense that the population was still majority white.
How has the trend been since the The Immigration and Nationality Act of 1965?
In order to get an insight on the demographic situation in Texas one can simply visit the official website of the Texas Department of State Health Services.
If we start by looking approximately 30 years past the establishment of The Immigration and Nationality Act of 1965, we can already see a drastic change in the racial demographics. In 1998, whites constituted 57,6% of the population in Texas. Even though they were still a majority back then no one can deny that a roughly 30% decrease in 33 years is a radical change. One of the main factors behind this change was of course a liberal immigration policy and a major increase of the Hispanic population who by this time consisted almost a third of the population (28,3%).
It is not a coincidence that the states that are closest to the Mexican border are the states that are the first ones to experience the consequences of mass immigration in terms of demographics. If we fast forward to 2017, almost 60 years since The Immigration and Nationality Act of 1965, we can now confirm that whites are not only a minority, they are not even the biggest minority group in the State of Texas (whites consist of 40,9% compared to the Hispanic population of 41%).
This goes to show how rapidly opening border policies can change an entire population. Not even a century has past but the white population now make up less than half of the population, compared to 87,4% in 1960.
Of course, Texas is just one showcase example, we can observe the same trend occurring not only in pretty much all states in the U.S. but in all white majority countries in the world that adapts to the multicultural agenda. The only difference is the rate, i.e. what year this demographic shift is expected to happen. Whether that be in 2050, 2060 or later is of less importance.
Texas is a good example of how “The Great Replacement” is not an ambiguous “conspiracy theory” or something that might happen in some distant future in theory, it is actually a phenomenon that is not only real but is happening here and now.
