  • The Best Story of Our Lives

    By Bobbi Bowman
    Diversity Director, ASNE

    If you like telling stories, spinning yarns, crafting narratives, then you should love demographics -- they are the best story of our lives. Demographics, you see, aren't just about numbers. They're about covering how this country changes from white to brown over the next quarter-century. That's something no other country has ever done.

    Demographics are about power. They're about people. When you look at a white baby, you are looking at the new minority in this country. When you look at black, Latino, Asian or Native American toddlers -- you're looking at the baby face of the country's new majority.

    California's non-Hispanic white population is 43 percent. Less than one-third of those younger than 5 years old are non-Hispanic white.

    Florida's non-Hispanic white population is 62 percent. Less than one-half of those younger than 5 years old are non-Hispanic white.

    Texas' non-Hispanic white population is 49 percent. Just a little more than one-third of those younger than 5 years old are non-Hispanic white.

    The nation as a whole has a non-Hispanic white population of 67 percent. Just more than one-half of those younger than 5 years old are non-Hispanic whites.

    This is the best story of our lives.
