2045. This is the year, the U.S. Census Bureau now projects, that whites will be in the minority.
According to information released Wednesday, the non-Hispanic, native-born white population “will become less than 50% before 2040,” Brookings Institution demographer William Frey told Al Jazeera America. “Overall, there is white decline and minority gain for most of the projection period. […] The majority-minority tipping point date is 2044,” meaning that by 2045 the white population will become the racial minority.
