For the first time in history, there are now more minority babies being born in the country than white babies, according to an article on Yahoo.

“This is an important landmark,” said Roderick Harrison, a former chief of racial statistics at the Census Bureau who is now a sociologist at Howard University. “This generation is growing up much more accustomed to diversity than its elders.”

I wonder if “people of color” will stop being called minorities if their numbers surpass those of the the white population.
