More Than Half Of U.S. States Have Higher Rate Of White Deaths Than White Births, Study Finds

By Vanessa Nix Anthony

A new census data brief by Applied Population Lab and published in the New York Times yesterday is being chattered about all over the interwebs and is sure to make your garden variety white supremacists break into a sweat and start immediately canvassing for new recruits. 

That's because the data shows Fewer Births Than Deaths Among Whites in a Majority of U.S. States. In fact, caucasian deaths outnumbered births in 26 US states in 2016, up from 17 just two years earlier.

And while there are no doubt many contributing factors to this sensational little factoid, those are hardly being discussed at all, with most conversation mainly focusing on how freaked out the demographer who found this out was ("he thought it was a mistake," according to The New York Times) and how this all could be signaling "a faster-than-expected transition to a future in which whites are no longer a majority of the American population."  

Cue the Alt-Right looking like an Edvard Munch painting right about now, "Oh NO!!!"
