White Deaths Outnumber Births in America
A new milestone in the gradual decline of white people in America occurred this week. The number of non-Hispanic white deaths outnumbered births for the first time. Significantly, several demographers have said that they are not aware of another time in American history when the dominant racial group in America has shrunk in this way, even taking into account such events as the depression and the two world wars last century.
A New Royal
It appears that there will soon be another Royal addition to the world with the much anticipated news that the Duchess of Cambridge is expecting a baby. According to the BBC, one historian reported it as being the first "duty and ambition" of someone in Kate’s position to produce an heir because “marriages and births are crucial to the very survival of the ancient institution” which is the Royal family.
