As reported in an article by Christine Simmons,"Bill Clinton: United States Growing More Diverse" :
Former President Bill Clinton said Saturday that Americans should be mindful of the nation's changing demographics, which led to the election of Barack Obama as president. He told an Arab-American audience of 1,000 people that the U.S. is no longer just a black-white country, nor a country that is dominated by Christians and a powerful Jewish minority, given the growing numbers of Muslims, Hindus and other religious groups here.Clinton looks forward to the day when America's historical majority is no longer the majority:
Clinton said by 2050 the U.S. will no longer have a majority of people with European heritage and that in an interdependent world "this is a very positive thing."" A positive thing?" Sez who?
Did we ever get to vote on this drastic demographic transformation?
Why is it OK for it to be celebrated but not questioned?
Does the country's (still) white majority have the right to decide its own destiny?
Despite Clinton's assurance , the non-European majority is not a foregone conclusion. There is still time (though not much time) for a bold politician to make it a political issue. If a Republican doesn't have the courage (and it currently looks as though none do) is it time to look elsewhere?
