From tonight's BBC:

"White people are projected to no longer be in the majority in the United States by the year 2042 - eight years sooner than previous projections.

"The US Census Bureau's latest figures - based on birth, death and immigration rates - suggest that minorities will soon make up 55% of the population.

"Hispanics who now make up about 15% will, it says, account for 30% by 2050.

"It is projected that black people will make up 15%, a small increase, while Asians will grow from 4% to 9%. "
