I presume you are talking about the US? White is a minority worldwide right now. I don't think 2050 will be the year, but soon enough. No, I see no reason for it to bother me. Perhaps some white people should consider how they deal with minorities now....

Vote Donald Trump, save the whites from the minority! Cant stump the trump
dietorangesoda says2015-10-01T18:13:23.1479881Z
Yes this is the US and this is what national geographic is saying that picture of the girl is what they believe the average american will look like by 2050
TBR says2015-10-01T18:48:45.9436449Z
For what its worth, you can be a majority minority. Plurality. I would guess that is what they are saying.
TBR says2015-10-01T18:49:24.6313969Z
Does it bother you?
dietorangesoda says2015-10-01T18:54:49.7266060Z
Yeah it bothers me particularly cuz i'm blonde and blue eyed which is already a minority same goes for redheads they will probably be extinct soon i guess that makes me racist but i do prefer my race as does everyone else and want it to be the majority
cludwig says2015-10-01T18:58:35.4629470Z
@dietorangesoda - I am also blonde and blue eyed, but feel that the less of us there are, the more special (and dare I even say desirable) we become. Is this a bad thing?
TBR says2015-10-01T19:03:23.3664835Z
Well, make more babies.
dietorangesoda says2015-10-01T19:36:44.9941756Z
Not a bad thing but eventually we become extinct
TBR says2015-10-01T19:58:54.0496714Z
Well, we are all going to be extinct at some point. That's not even a question.
triangle.128k says2015-10-01T20:26:34.4406288Z
@TBR Not if we colonize other planets and become an interstellar species.
dietorangesoda says2015-10-01T20:27:17.7147600Z
Yeah but u wouldn't want something about your people to go away i don't know your hair color or anything but if it's dark your already a majority and so don't have to worry but if we blondes overtook you you might think differently
triangle.128k says2015-10-01T20:31:54.6783760Z
@dietorangesoda Nothing will happen to whites or any people with your hair color. It's not like whites are going extinct anytime soon.
TBR says2015-10-01T20:34:53.9923344Z
Even colonizing doesn't give us a pass from extinction. It will happen, just a matter of when.
triangle.128k says2015-10-01T20:35:56.9863458Z
Not if we become an inter-galactic (maybe an inter-universal) civilization...
TBR says2015-10-01T20:36:53.4282312Z
Yea, I can't see how I would be worked-up if brown hair became a minority. Regardless, it's happening. Blue eyes will go at some point. Meh.
TBR says2015-10-01T20:39:10.9292754Z
@triangle.128k - Intergalactic too. The universe will end, the stars burn out. We are not going to escape this no-matter what.
TBR says2015-10-01T20:42:02.7821802Z
My guess (and hope) is we will make it off this rock. We may make it out of this solar system. We will most certainly not outlive our galaxy's death. I think that is about the best hope we could have. The reality is much more grim. It is much more likely we will go extinct before really making any real efforts outside our own solar system.
ButterCatX says2015-10-01T20:42:09.5816348Z
I have multi-colored eyes does this make me a minority and should I only pro-create with others that match my eye colors to prevent extinction of my eye type?
TBR says2015-10-01T20:43:45.4696202Z
Like one eye one color, and the other... Wait... Are you a wolf?
Wylted says2015-10-01T20:45:35.3986689Z
Yea it bothers me. It's not so bad when everybody who hates you is a minority, but when they're the majority and still saying you oppress them, it will be tough.
jkeastt says2015-10-01T20:54:00.0995745Z
It depends if whites are as discriminated against as blacks when the white race are a minority. Will the blacks receive supremacy over the whites or will the blacks still be discriminated against due to the past? Interesting concepts.
ButterCatX says2015-10-01T20:54:55.1637273Z
Both of my eyes are green at the center and turn to brown as they get farther away.
TBR says2015-10-01T20:56:38.0370117Z
Its really not like that. Blacks will never be the majority (baring mass immigration). At some point, as the picture notes, there will be a blend of race and ethnicity.
dietorangesoda says2015-10-01T20:57:22.0835855Z
You guys are completely missing the point it's not about blonde hair or blue eyes it's about the fact that people want their race to be the majority face it everyone does people feel more comfortable around their own race and own culture not to mention the lack of diversity that's going to happen
TBR says2015-10-01T20:59:37.3780605Z
I don't know about that.... I could use some time not being the majority. Again, we are living in a world where we are a minority already, and its not causing me much trouble now.
TBR says2015-10-01T21:01:20.3712411Z
http://www.prb.org/wpds/2014/index.html Asians are kicking our a$$s
ButterCatX says2015-10-01T21:06:42.7257917Z
Also there would be many benefits for whites becoming a minority. i.e. colleges, race issues, etc.
komododragon8 says2015-10-01T21:16:46.5163218Z
I just came from a place where my race was the majority, to an area where my race is a minority, and I couldn't care less. To me we're all just people.
TBR says2015-10-01T21:38:16.7682511Z
Where would that be? How to train your dragon land?
TBR says2015-10-01T21:45:52.1871323Z
Again thinking about it. When this happens, it's not like you wake up some day and everything has changed. "Crap, I'm a MINORITY". It will happen over time, be very natural and normal. More hispanic faces, more Asians etc. Why would it be something to worry about? Unless you want to start doing the diugger thing. And start popping out a dozon kids, not much you can do about it
dietorangesoda says2015-10-01T21:46:00.2843769Z
Well we'll see how you all feel when that time comes
ButterCatX says2015-10-01T21:48:31.8687087Z
I'm telling you, it will be like christmas
TBR says2015-10-01T21:50:41.8012758Z
No you wont. You will be dead or on your way. If your an old grump lady in a nursing home talking about being the minority, take solice, the other grumpy old ladies will be about the same mix as they are today
TBR says2015-10-01T21:52:19.3952502Z
I think you wanted to say "like kwanza
Sciguy says2015-10-01T23:11:50.2310698Z
It is unlikely that whites will ever be the minorities. Overtime however, with population increase, all minoritys may be greater or equal to the population of whites.
dietorangesoda says2015-10-02T00:59:44.2793284Z
Sciguy read up on it this is what scientists are saying a lot of it comes from the fact that were mixing races so much now
TBR says2015-10-02T01:40:16.4885381Z
@dietorangesoda - RIght. And that is why the conversation is gravitating to things like hair and eye color. No big deal.
ButterCatX says2015-10-02T21:37:45.1252231Z
The kwanza wolf has returned, bow down to me and the Royal order of don't give fvck that we are gonna be a minority
TBR says2015-10-02T22:20:06.0690609Z
I prefer the company of symmetrical colored eye wolfs, sorry
ButterCatX says2015-10-04T14:09:10.6994239Z
Does it bother you that by the year 2050, weird colored eye wolves will be the minority???
krayracker says2015-10-06T22:09:00.6296170Z
I'm not white, but I kinda like being the minority.
