US: Census shows white decline, nonwhite majority among youngest, by Mike Schneider.

For the first time, nonwhites and Hispanics were a majority of people under age 16 in 2019, an expected demographic shift that will grow over the coming decades, according to figures released by the U.S. Census Bureau on Thursday. …
