Whites on LI are dwindling!

New census data shows racial, ethnic growth on LI
Data shows half of Nassau residents between the ages of 25 and 29 are Hispanic or non-white, marking decline of Long Island's white majority
Newsday Staff Writer

August 21, 2006

For a peek into Long Island's future, take a look at someone in his late 20s.

In Nassau County, for the first time in modern history, chances are less than 50 percent that the person will be white. According to new U.S. Census data released last week, non-Hispanic whites make up 49.5 percent of Nassau residents aged 25 to 29.

People in their late 20s, it turns out, are on the cutting edge of a national trend toward racial and ethnic diversification, a pronounced phenomenon on Long Island. In Suffolk, whites make up 63 percent of the age group -- this on an island that, overall, is still 73 percent white.

Some say the main cause is immigration. More newcomers are moving directly to suburbs, where ethnic communities are now well-established.

"The parts of the region that appear to have grown the most in terms of foreign-born residents are the older suburban counties," said Chris Jones, vice president for research at the Regional Plan Association, a Manhattan-based group. "People in their 20s are more likely to come here for work than someone in their 40s and 50s."

Jose Carvajal is one of those people. Carvajal, 28, fell in love with New York City when he watched TV in his native El Salvador. But when he immigrated to the United States in 2000, he chose Long Island because he already had friends there. He now lives in Westbury with his wife and their 1-year-old daughter.

"I like the beach, I like the malls, I like it for the jobs," said Carvajal, a maintenance worker.

People in their late 20s and early 30s are more likely to have been born in another country than any other age group on Long Island, according to the Census data. Twenty-eight percent of 25- to 34-year-olds were born in a foreign country, compared to 16 percent of Long Islanders as a whole.

At the same time, Long Island has seen a decline in the number of white residents. The island was home to 62,000 fewer whites in 2005, compared with 2000, a 3 percent decrease. In the same period, the number of Hispanics grew to 57,000, a 20 percent increase. Blacks and Asians have also grown in number. While the most recent data don't show why whites are leaving, some say the rising cost of living, especially home prices, is driving middle-class whites out of the region.

Many native Long Islanders -- the majority of them white -- leave for college and don't come back, said Pearl Kamer, chief economist for the Long Island Association, a business group. "They look at housing and the cost of living on Long Island and they probably make their career elsewhere," she said.

Some demographers also point to the "baby bust" -- the time in the 1970s and 80s when fewer babies were born in the United States.

Patrick Young, chairman of the Long Island Immigrant Alliance, said some of the Hispanics in this age group are also second-generation Central Americans, many of whose parents fled civil war in the 1980s. "You're really seeing the confluence of two different groups," he said.

While twentysomethings are among the most racially diverse age groups, young children are even more racially and ethnically diverse nationwide. Children under 5 years old are 55 percent white in the United States, compared to 60 percent white among people aged 25 to 29.

However, the same is not true for Long Island. The young children, as a group, are far less diverse than people in their 20s. Whites make up 60 percent of children under 5, and 68 percent of children ages 5 to 9.

Experts say this could be because of the high cost of living and few housing options.

"It's not mom and dad and the kids coming over," said Young. "It's very typically young men coming to the United States and arriving on their own."

Long Islanders, like New Yorkers as a whole, tend to marry later than those in the rest of the country. By age 30, 41 percent of Americans are married, according to the Census data. On Long Island, only 30 percent have wed by age 30.

This slice of the population offers a peek into the future of Long Island and the nation, many say. As people in their 20s grow older, they are likely to stay on the island, get married and have children. At the same time, new young people will move in, further diversifying the region.

"What we are seeing with the under-40 population -- and even more so with the under-30 population -- is going to be the face of America when we look down the road not too far," said William Frey, a demographer at the Brookings Institution.

That change is likely to have a mixed impact. On the one hand, immigrants traditionally reinvigorate depressed neighborhoods and work hard to attain middle-class status. But at the same time, Kamer said, Long Islanders should expect to see a greater demand for services, such as English as a Second Language classes and vocational training.

Although the new faces will undoubtedly transform Long Island's cultural life, Young points out that immigrants are equally changed by their new environment. "They become Americans, and Americans become a little like them," he said.

Whites are dwindling all over! The main purpose of an hispanic is to spread his seed, to produce another warrior-breeder, corona slugger, Malta maven, fried pork rind eater, and an expert on 'lucha libre'. They breed without any regard to care and nutruing of their children since they know that whitey will pay the taxes to support these low IQ proto-humans. It is a big thing in their culture to show that they are (the men) are not shooting 'blanks'. They will strive and strive to make as many males of their species as possible. They live 35 or more to a rented house, where the toilet backs up, so like a true primitive they relieve themselves in the yards, sidewalks or wherever they feel the urge. The vile filth in congress, thunder hips hillary, teddy kennedy, the ladykiller and the rest of these traitors think that if they can get enough of these congenital idiots they will stay in office forever. For all practical purposes these primitives are ineducable. They will be ignorant forever, turning Long Island into a mexican group squat that will fester in disease, bed bugs (no kidding, you can get bed bugs on the subway or bus because they will jump from the host, (primitive) to the person sitting next to them. When your child goes to school they will sit next to creatures that are riddled with new strains of TB, aids, and all new plagues that we were given shots to prevent. When I went to college two and a half years ago, there were posters that urged these aliens to get their shots, as though we were a third world country. Watch public access TV and see what these creatures are and what they want to do. It will open your eyes. They hate us, they hate our country and they want to kill and replace us with the same culture that has turned everywhere they have been into an unlivable slum, even for them.

El Cabong,
In response to your posting...Are you insinuating that we should give in?  Please take a look around you next time you are out on LI.  Roosevelt Field used to be a nice mall where you could spend the day walking around with your family.  Now it is Vermin Field Mall where you can go and catch some awful disease, especially if you have the misfortune of needing to use the restroom.  Jones Beach, the Rockaways, Riis park et al were also nice places to spend the day in the summer.  Now they are riddled with litter and degenerates.  The whole south shore is turning into a ghetto.  I fortunately reside in Manhasset with my wife and children.  I pay exorbitant property taxes in order to have a nice place to live and good schools for my children.  If this immigration problem persists I fear that even the north shore will feel it soon.  When that day comes I will not take la bamba lessons nor will I buy stock in a television station that I can not watch.  Instead I'll find a place where "whitey" is still the majority (even if it means leaving this state) to relocate to.

It is not only on Long Island that they have taken over. Read this and the next time a mexican smiles at you run this article back in your mind.


Augustin Cebada, Brown Berets; "Go back to Boston! Go back to Plymouth Rock, Pilgrims! Get out! We are the future. You are old and tired. Go on. We have beaten you. Leave like beaten rats. You old white people. It is your duty to die . . . Through love of having children, we are going to take over.

Richard Alatorre, Los Angeles City Council. "They're afraid we're going to take over the governmental institutions and other institutions. They're right. We will take them over . . . We are here to stay."

Excelsior, the national newspaper of Mexico, "The American Southwest seems to be slowly returning to the jurisdiction of Mexico without firing a single shot."

Professor Jose Angel Gutierrez, University of Texas; "We have an aging white America. They are not making babies. They are dying. The explosion is in our population . I love it. They are shitting in their pants with fear. I love it."

Art Torres, Chairman of the California Democratic Party, "Remember 187--proposition to deny taxpayer funds for services to non-citizens--was the last gasp of white America in California."

Gloria Molina, Los Angeles County Supervisor, "We are politicizing every single one of these new citizens that are becoming citizens of this country . . . I gotta tell you that a lot of people are saying, "I'm going to go out there and vote because I want to pay them back."

Mario Obledo, California Coalition of Hispanic Organizations and California State Secretary of Health, Education and Welfare under Governor Jerry Brown, also awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom by President Bill Clinton, "California is going to be a Hispanic state. Anyone who doesn't like it should leave."

Jose Pescador Osuna, Mexican Consul General , "We are practicing 'La Reconquista' in California."

Professor Fernando Guerra, Loyola Marymount University; "We need to avoid a white backlash by using codes understood by Latinos . . . "

Are these just the words of a few extremists? Consider that we could fill up many pages with such quotes. Also, consider that these are mainstream Mexican leaders.

On February 15, 1998, the U.S. and Mexican soccer teams met at the Los Angeles Coliseum. The crowd was overwhelmingly pro-Mexican even though most lived in this country. They booed during the National Anthem and U.S. flags were held upside down. As the match progressed, supporters of the U.S. team were insulted, pelted with projectiles, punched and spat upon. Beer and trash were thrown at the U.S. players before and after the match. The coach of the U.S. team, Steve Sampson said, "This was the most painful experience I have ever had in this profession."

Did you know that immigrants from Mexico and other non-European countries can come to this country and get preferences in jobs, education, and government contracts? It's called affirmative action or racial privilege. The Emperor of Japan or the President of Mexico could migrate here and immediately be eligible for special rights unavailable for Americans of European descent. Recently, a vote was taken in the U.S. Congress to end this practice. It was defeated. Every single Democratic senator except Ernest Hollings voted to maintain special privileges for Hispanic, Asian and African immigrants. They were joined by thirteen Republicans. Bill Clinton and Al Gore have repeatedly stated that they believe that massive immigration from countries like Mexico is good. They have also backed special privileges for these immigrants.

Corporate America has signed on to the idea that minorities and third world immigrants should get special, privileged status. Some examples are Exxon, Texaco, Merrill Lynch, Boeing, Paine Weber, Starbucks and many more.

Did you know that Mexico regularly intercedes on the side of the defense in criminal cases involving Mexican nationals? Did you know that Mexico has NEVER extradited a Mexican national accused of murder in the U.S. in spite of agreements to do so? According to the L.A. Times, Orange County, California is home to 275 gangs with 17,000 members; 98% of which are Mexican and Asian. How's your county doing?

According to a New York Times article dated May 19, 1994, 20 years after the great influx of legal immigrants from Southeast Asia, 30% are still on welfare compared to 8% of households nationwide. A Wall Street
Journal editorial dated December 5, 1994 quotes law enforcement officials as stating that Asian mobsters are the "greatest criminal challenge the country faces." Not bad for a group that is still under 5% of the population.

Is education important to you? Here are the words of a teacher who spent over 20 years in the Los Angeles School system. "Imagine teachers in classes containing 30-40 students of widely varying attention spans and motivation, many of whom aren't fluent in English.
Educators seek learning materials likely to reach the majority of students and that means fewer words and math problems and more pictures and
multicultural references."

When I was young, I remember hearing about the immigrants that came through Ellis Island. They wanted to learn English. They wanted to breath free. They wanted to become Americans. Now too many immigrants come here with demands. They demand to be taught in their own language. They demand special privileges-- affirmative action. They demand ethnic studies that glorify their culture. The schools have rewritten US History to accommodate these demands.

What is wrong with making it mandatory that everyone receiving social benefits such as welfare, food stamps, health care, unemployment insurance, etc., be UNITED STATES CITIZENS!

American white people we are at the fork in the road on this one. Time has run out. The illegal wetbacks are here in numbers that would stager your mind and more are overrunning the frontera as they call it each day. The government isn't telling us the true number of illegal roaches that have already invaded the country. American citizens would be outraged.  I can see it easily being double the reported number. Every place you go you see this shiftless filth hanging around on the corners and walking on foot with their trademark back pack on. We need to get politicians who are willing to take a stand on this tough issue. I was always a strong proponent of deportation of this filth however I am starting to see that that would be an impossible task. The key here is to  make it a severe crime to employ, rent housing, or even harbor anyone who isn't legally documented to be here in our country. ALLOW POLICE DEPARTMENTS TO ENFORCE THE LAW and then PROSICUTE AND DEPORT THIS TRASH OUT OF HERE. They wont come back if they know they cant get work, housing or sponge off the system.  I really believe this is the only solution. Even this solution will not be available much longer.
He who overlooks one crime invites the commission of another.        Syrus.

A light on to the nations for 60 years

Somebody needs to send this article to all the union minority leaders in NYC who keep complaining that NYC police officers and NYC firefighters are not "sensitive" to them becasue they all come from "lily-white" Long Island. Right!
