So it’s official: the U.S. Census Bureau says non-whites constituted a majority of U.S. births in 2011.

How long do you suppose we will have to wait for a Victor Davis Hanson column warning Americans that they can glimpse their dystopic future by visiting California? Will the great racist classic, Jean Raspail’s Camp of the Saints, a vision of Europe being overrun by black and brown looters, be reissued and climb the best-seller lists?

Oops, sorry, I forgot. There is no “racism” on the Right. Laments about the declining hegemony of the White Man are just “politically incorrect.” So I amend my prediction: the news from the Census will spur an awful lot of “politically incorrect” talk.
