DAILYKENN.com --White people are being out bred.
The fertility rate for white women in every state fell below the level needed to sustain the white population at the current level. 12 states recorded an increase in fertility rates among black women and 29 states recorded an increase in fertility rates among Hispanic women.
Overall, fertility rates are down across the board and in all but two states: Utah and South Dakota.

Fertility rates for white women were down in every US state in 2017 - below the rate needed for the population to replace itself, a new report from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reveals.
However, among black and Hispanic women, fertility rates were up in 12 and 29 states, respectively.
When researchers looked at fertility rates for women of all age groups and races, they found that the nationwide rate was 16 percent lower than what is considered the level for a population to replace itself.
Experts say this is likely due to the fact that the large proportion of native-born women are having fewer children than before, while the much smaller proportion of immigrant-born women are having more children.
Additionally, the US white population has been hit hard by the Great Recession of 08-09, and is aging.
The overall fertility rate was only above the level in two states: South Dakota (with a boom in jobs for white Americans in the energy industry) and Utah (home to a high concentration of Mormons).
Demographers and public policy experts say if the rate continues to decline, there will not be enough healthy, young workers to keep the economy going and replace an aging population.
