America Is Moving South, Turning HispanicS

What further nuggets of sociology-lite can be wrung from the trickle of data that continues to issue from the U.S. Census Bureau like so much pre-cum? Simply this: everyone's fleeing the frozen North and turning brown.

In the past decade, U.S. metropolitan areas grew by 18% in the South and 13% in the West, but only 5% in the Midwest and by a measly 3% in the Northeast. And for the first time in recorded history, Hispanics now outnumber black people in U.S. metro areas.

White people, of course, still control America's cities.(And everywhere else.) But for how long? If you, a white person, can take away one message from the new U.S. Census, it is this: fear. Fear everything. Happy weekend.
