New numbers from the Census Bureau project whites will stop being the majority in the U.S. by 2043.

First, let’s take a quick look at the breakdown as it stands (MAP VIA NATIONAL ARCHIVES):


 

- 63.7% WHITE NOT HISPANIC OR LATINO

- 16.4% LATINO

- 12.6% AFRICAN AMERICAN
- 4.8% ASIAN

But by 2043, the Census Bureau says, no more white majority, and by 2060:

- 43% WHITE
- 31% HISPANIC
- 14.7% AFRICAN AMERICAN


- 8% ASIANS


Among the reasons, the Census Bureau cites, is a higher birth rate among minorities. There are already major cities in the U.S. with non-white majorities, like Honolulu, Atlanta and Miami. And the changing demographics nationwide could see other changes.

VIA WRC: “The shift is reshaping school, the workforce and traditional voting blocs.”

Already analysts are discussing whether the projections have political implications.

This past election cycle, 78% of nonwhite voters went for President Obama’s reelection, sparking a discussion about how Republicans plan to reach out to minorities.

Today the U.S. population stands at nearly 315 million people. The Census Bureau predicts it’ll reach 420 million by 2060.
