Hispanics, Blacks, Asians and other ethnic groups comprise the other 38%.
However, where these groups live is not evenly distributed around the country.
StatisticalAtlas.com has some interesting charts on where Whites have large percentages of the population and where minorities have a large presence.
Let's look at state data on the percentage that Whites are in each state's population.
Maine, Vermont, West Virginia and New Hampshire all are over 90% White.
On the other hand, Minorities are already the majority in Hawaii, California, New Mexico and Texas.
How about the Non-White percentages in 50 selected cities?
Detroit is more than 90% Non-White. Miami and El Paso are not far behind.
Portland, Oregon and Colorado Springs are only about 30% Non-White.
What about Metro areas? These are the White percentages in various large metro areas.
The Pittsburgh and Cincinnati metro areas are both more than 80% White.
By contrast, the LA metro area is now only 30% White.
I also found it interesting that the Detroit metro area is 67% White even though the city of Detroit is more than 90% non-White.
What about counties? These are the counties with the largest non-White populations.
The Bronx is over 90% non-White. This might help explain how a 27-year old Hispanic woman, who was working as a bartender. was able to defeat Joe Crowley in a Democrat primary for one of the Congressional seats in the Bronx. Crowley had been in office for 10 terms and was also the Chair of the House Democratic Congress.
The United States is more racially diverse than it has ever been in history and this trend will continue into the future based on current demographic trends.
Will that increased diversity result in a stronger nation?
For that, we will have to wait and see.
