America hit a demographic milestone last year, with new census figures showing for the first time more than half the children born in the U.S. were minorities.

That percentage just barely eked over the halfway mark, with minorities making up 50.4 percent of U.S. births in the 12-month period ending July 2011. But it marks a steady trend –– minorities represented 37 percent of births in 1990.

As a whole, the nation's minority population continues to rise, following a higher-than-expected Hispanic count in the 2010 census. Minorities increased 1.9 percent to 114.1 million, or 36.6 percent of the total U.S. population, lifted by prior waves of immigration that brought in young families and boosted the number of Hispanic women in their prime childbearing years.

So?

Changing reality? Not too long ago Italians were considered minorities. Not anymore, and many Hispanics and Asians I know are completely assimilated. I have Hispanic coworkers who know less Spanish than I do.

The US has always had a high number of immigrants, many who weren't assimilated, New York used to have a dozen foreign language newspapers.

Hispanics are not a race and were not counted before 1970.
