Summary In April 2011 a New York Times headline announced, ""Numbers of Children of Whites Falling Fast."" As it turns out, that year became the first time in American history that more minority babies than white babies were born. The concept of a ""minority white"" may instill fear among some Americans, but William H. Frey, the man behind the demographic research, points out that demography is destiny, and the fear of a more racially diverse nation will almost certainly dissipate over time. Through a compelling narrative and eye-catching charts and maps, eminent demographer Frey interprets and expound.
