Great Replacement Facts

June 15th, 2022

There’s been much talk about the replacement of White people in America. Many claim it’s a myth, and a conspiracy theory. I would like to provide our readers with the facts.

According to the U.S. Census Bureau, the number of people in the USA who identified as non-Hispanic White has dropped from 85.4% in 1960 to 57.8% in 2020. In 2010, 196.8 million people identified as non-Hispanic White. In 2020 that drops to 191.6 million- a loss of 5.2 million despite the US population having a net increase of 22.7 million in the last ten years. If we used White instead of non-Hispanic White, we get a loss of 19.2 million. These figures include the persons of Middle Eastern and North African descent that the Census Bureau considers to be “White”- so it’s difficult to get an exact figure for the number of people of European stock in America.

Joe Biden might be able to help with that, via his 2015 opening speech at the White House Summit on Countering Violent Extremism:

“An Unrelenting Stream of Immigration. Nonstop, Nonstop. Folks like me, who were Caucasian of European descent, for the first time in 2017 will be in an absolute minority in the United States of America- absolute minority. Fewer than 50% of the people in America, from then and on will be White European stock. That’s not a bad thing, it’s a source of our strength”

Sitting next to Joe Biden (and grinning along) was Alejandro Mayorkas, who is now Secretary of Homeland Security. I can’t imagine he would be very happy if Biden had said those things about his people in Israel.

What about Manistee County, Michigan? The Manistee News Advocate published an article by Scott Fraley titled Census 2020: What demographics changed in Manistee County. In it he says our counties population has grown by 1.2% (roughly 300 people) since 2010. Despite this growth, the White share of the population has gone down, from 90.6% in 2010 to 87.2%.

In order to sustain a population in a western country, an average fertility rate of 2.1 children per woman over her lifetime is required. According to Statista, the non-Hispanic-White fertility rate in America is 1.61. Only Asians are listed below that at 1.51. The leaders are Native Hawaiian / Other Pacific Islanders at 2.178, followed by Hispanics at 1.94. On average, Americans don’t produce enough children to sustain the population- with Whites, Native Americans, and Asians reproducing the least.

For decades environmentalists and science publications have been telling people to have fewer- and even no children in order to save the planet. Unfortunately people in non-developed countries didn’t get that memo. On Wikipedia there is a list of sovereign states and dependencies by total fertility rate, which can be sorted by rank with 200 results. It’s not until one goes down to number 87 on the list that we find a White land, the Faroe Islands with a fertility level of 2.3. The first White country is Georgia, which is number 107 on the list with a fertility rate of 2.05. There is not a single White country on this list at or above the replacement level of 2.1 births per woman- only the Faroe Islands which is part of the Kingdom of Denmark, with a population of approximately 53,882 people. By contrast the top 25 places on that list are all African, with the lowest of them at 4.32 births per women for the Republic of the Congo.

Because Whites do not have enough children to sustain their population, any non-White immigration to our countries reduces the White share of that countries population. This has more impact than merely changing the racial and ethnic makeup of our countries. There are also social, economic, and political ramifications.

White people created western civilization. Without us there would be no Enlightenment, Magna Carta, or U.S. Constitution- including the Bill of Rights. Humanity has our people to thank for enormous contributions to its cultural and scientific development. A tiny fraction of these include the Printing Press, Steam Engine, the Airplane & Automobile, as well as Telephones, Computers, and the Internet. It’s nearly impossible for anyone on the planet to spend a day without benefiting from our gifts to humanity.
