Soon to become a minority in the US, whites express declining support for diversity, psychology study finds

October 3, 2014 by Stuart Wolpert
Doctoral student Felix Danbold and professor Yuen Huo found that white Americans' favorable views of diversity tends to diminish if they understand that whites will soon be a minority in the U.S.

(Phys.org) —White Americans may view diversity and multiculturalism more negatively as the U.S. moves toward becoming a minority-majority nation, UCLA psychologists report.

As part of their study, the researchers divided 98 Americans from all regions of the country—half male, half female, with an average age of 37—randomly into two groups. One group was told that whites will no longer be the majority in the U.S. by 2050; in fact, this is likely to be true as soon as 2043, according to some projections. The second group was told that whites would retain their majority status in the U.S. through at least 2050. All participants were then asked a series of questions about their views on .

"Whites feel lukewarm about diversity when they are told that they are about to lose their majority status in the United States for the first time," said Yuen Huo, UCLA professor of psychology and the study's senior author.

Using a seven-point scale—where 1 meant "strongly disagree" and 7 meant "strongly agree"—subjects were asked how much they agreed or disagreed with statements like "One of the goals of our country should be to teach people from different racial, ethnic and cultural backgrounds how to live and work together" and "Americans should understand that differences in backgrounds and experiences can lead to different values and ways of thinking." Those who believed whites would continue to be the majority gave an average response of 5.67, while those who believed that whites would no longer be the majority gave an average response of just 5.15.

"We see a significant reduction in the endorsement of diversity when white Americans are exposed to current projections of future demographics," said Felix Danbold, a UCLA psychology doctoral student and the paper's lead author. "Most Americans view diversity in positive terms, but many white Americans who see the actual demographic projections, and the loss of their majority status, end up being less enthusiastic about it."

Those in the study who identified themselves as Republicans gave average responses of 4.5, compared with 5.8 for Democrats and 5.7 for independents. Thirty-six percent of the participants were Democrats, 21 percent were Republicans and 31 percent were independents.

Support for diversity was also higher among women, with an average response of 5.7; men's average response was 5.1.

The researchers say the results are related to whites feeling threatened in a way that is distinct from their concerns about economic competition or clashing cultural values. They concluded that the demographic changes are threatening whites' sense that they best represent the American identity.

"Whites have long benefited from being seen as the ethnic group that best represents what it means to be American," said Huo, a faculty member in the UCLA College. "Thinking about a future in which whites are no longer a numerical majority threatens this claim to the American identity and, we have found, results in a reluctance to embrace diversity and greater support for newcomers to assimilate to American society."

The "threat to identity," Danbold said, is often overlooked in discussions about why whites are uneasy about changing demographics.

In a second study, researchers showed that whites who perceived that the relative size of their ethnic group was rapidly declining also expressed a greater interest in having other assimilated to their own. The researchers again explained this reaction as whites defending their group as "best representing what America stands for."

In this study—involving 194 white Americans, with the same gender split, same median age and geographic profile as the first—researchers also asked how well different ethnic groups represent the values and ideals of America.

Seventy-three percent rated whites significantly higher than other ethnic groups as best representing America. Just 27 percent viewed African-Americans, Asian Americans, Latino Americans and white Americans—America's four largest ethnic groups—as equally representative of American values and ideals.

Those who felt that all ethnic groups represent America equally well supported diversity even when thinking about their group's declining share of the U.S. population.

Participants were also asked how strongly they agreed or disagreed with statements including "The growth of other ethnic groups has increased the tax burden on members of my ethnic group" and "Social services have become less available to members of my ethnic group because of the growth of other ethnic groups." On a scale from 1 to 5, where 5 represented the strongest agreement, the average score was 3.04.

I care. Trust me, you cannot trust the minorities, especially those who you took land from. You want to be generous, but you also have to be careful. Right now, the one thing that the Chinese rely on is probably for the Hispanics to take over.

You cannot assume that everyone has forgotten the past, that's why I propose that we block immigration, or White having more kids.

The same thing happened in Europe. Uncontrolled immigration, then integration, and when that didn't work Multiculturalism was invented, and that doesn't work. Once functioning societies have become riddled with ethnic conflict. None of these majorities were asked if they wanted to give away their culture. They were only told that they were evil racists if they resisted change.

This is bad news for dependent cultures because they will have no where else to flock to.

A country that does little to preserve it's cultural identity through rational immigration with assimilation, is a degenerating one.

The authors are typical liberal dolts. They deliberately neglect to quantify WHY whites are concerned,.. being satisfied instead in wrapping their study around the already mindless conclusion that "whites are racist". Not all cultures are desired and one can even quantify the degenerate nature or threat or incompatibility with western culture amongst them.

For example, 70% of black babies are born out of wed lock, young black males are eight times more likely to commit homicide despite occupying only 14% of the population, then there is welfare, education rates, etc. This isn't about race it's what happens when you have an actively anti-white culture. Muslims are intrinsically anti-diversity for the most part, even amongst their own factions.

"Diversity" never includes Whites. Whites are not part of the "diversity rainbow". The mainstream media (i.e. Yahoo) views whiteness as a malignancy. If an institution (i.e. a school, a business, a community, etc.) is mostly white, then that institution is deemed to be "racist" and in need of "diversity". If all of the Whites disappear, no one cares because only the presence of Whites is an issue.. Whites have become a kind of sub-human category. Every other race or ethnicity is granted the right to a racial or ethnic identity, except Whites. Those who truly value "diversity" should recognize that the presence of Whites denotes diversity.

What this article fails to see is that a white Hispanic is as white as any other white in the U.S. or any other country. So when a white Hispanic has children from a "white" non-hispanic the children will be white, so my point, whites will always be the majority. This bring to mind the girl that was just found in Mexico. The mother is Hispanic yet the girl is white with blonde hair. Now wouldn't she be considered white because her mother is Hispanic? People lets not be so ignorant about ethnicity and race. I am of Hispanic descent, yet I have blood from Britain, Ireland, Italy and the Iberian Peninsula ( Spain, Portugal, France and Italy) and also Native American.

Regardless of a person's skin color, it is their education and the economic status that will define who controls the power in the country. The wealthy and elite of any societal group will eventually end in the same place because it is advantageous for them to be around others who have the same ideas. There are less Black, Chinese and Hispanic wealthy in this country only because there are fewer of them. This study is about playing to the Tea Party than it is about making any statement on the changing dynamics in any society.

Diversity translated means "hatred of Caucasians." This liberal propaganda is designed to condition a culture to accept what it normally would not accept. If you do not believe this will happen then it will not happen. If you accept this as fate it will happen. Why do think that this is a subject that you hear more and more about? Maybe it is also a boost to non whites. Don't allow liberals to control your lives any longer. What they have done to this country in 6 years should convince any thinking person that they aren't competent.

Why does the article refer to only "whites" by skin color, but other groups by demonym + "American" ("African American" or "Asian American"). If you're identifying by skin color, then the equivalent would be "black" and "yellow" respectively, and if you're identifying by continent of ancestry, then "European American" should be used.

Otherwise, you're comparing different groups (there are whites who are Asian... I know, since I live in Asia).

Such an anti-American statement:

The USA was once a place where it didn't matter where one was from or what family one belonged to.
Now, the socialists have encouraged and promoted divisiveness to promote entitlement empower race baiting socialist politicians like Obama and his fellow travelers.

The best way for any minority to become an American is to proclaim his support for the US Constitution. At that instant, the socialist race baiters will no longer see the color of their skin or their economic status. They will become enemies of the socialist sate and must be viciously attacked.

There was no breakdown by age. I wouldn't be surprised if the younger the participant in the study the less relevant this race/culture diversity topic. The people running the study would then also have to distinguish between those feeling threatened by diversity and those who for whom it's not particularly important. The example questions presented in the article and the context in which they were given didn't seem to do that.

According to my DNA, I happen to be WHITE. Hispanic comes from Hispania the Roman name for an area in EUROPE, same as both my bloodlines: Spain and Ireland. Guess what? I'm still white same as my children. My one grandson was born with blond hair same as his dad and very light blue eyes. Can anyone guess he is half Hispanic? Sure, his last name. I've posted in many articles that if most Hispanics are actually white based on DNA, which is what counts, how will the USA stop having a WHITE majority? Answer: it's not. I also have a niece with orange hair, probably because one of our ancestors nickname was "Red". I lived in Europe and went to school in Germany and was never treated as if I was something else but here in the States (born American citizen same as great-grandparents, etc) I'm somehow not white because I'm bilingual?

My European ancestors were here before yours, unless you are Native American, which obviously you are not. Second, you can bet that all the white illegals in the USA also have anchor babies.

'Liberals' needed to make 'Hispanic' and 'Latino' a special group in order to make excuses for the failure of their culture.
Same for 'Filipino'. Filipinos are a special class of Asians. Can't have Filipinos competing for special privileges with Chinese or Koreans.
It's really not race, its culture. Blacks from Africa or UK that come to the USA seem to do much better than those blacks who have been in the USA for generations.
Compare the cultures of Ireland, Scotland, England and how these cultures have performed in the US. Same for Scandinavian cultures. All 'white', too.
If the culture is limiting people, that culture can be rejected by the individual.
But if 'race' is the excuse, then the socialists can bribe those groups and help them make excuses.

The dishonesty of the drive-by charge of "racism" by the political left, has diluted that term to the point where even having a natural reaction to, or even mentioning factual attributes of another culture or race, is insinuated as "racist".

This corrupting of the term generates itself artificial racial animosity where there was none before, and prevents honest discussion,.... and is the leading cause of tensions between cultures.

Racism means the belief in inferiority in behavior or abilities that are intrinsic to a particular race. The term should not be expanded so that it is convenient as a label for your political opposition.

The study is bias, and likely deliberately so, because it only surveyed whites. Had they surveyed any other culture as well they would likely have found similar results. It is purely natural that one culture would want to be the dominate one. Furthermore the implication is that whites are uniquely anti-diversity and so racist. Again this is a fallacy. A diversity of cultures itself implies that one culture rejects the assimulation of itself into another culture.

In this survey blacks admit racism amongst their own demographic.

From the U.S. Census Bureau, 2013:
"White alone... 77.7%"

This tells me that the study is automatically flawed, since any white person who participated is evidently a moron for believing that whites will "soon become a minority."

Also, it would be interesting to see how other races in countries where they predominate would react to an analogous study. I would argue that the phenomenon exhibited in this study is a human phenomenon, and not merely a "white" one.

For example, I am white, and have lived in Japan for 10 years, and I think it's reasonable to say that many Japanese are already threatened by the miniscule number of foreigners already living and working there. And I don't think it's from sheer racism, mind you, but maybe some of the same stuff that was at play in this study.

The US population plateaued in the 1970s and then, with the advent of liberal immigration quotas and mass amnesties foisted by all the parties in power, we grew to 320+ million and now are on our way to overpopulating. Instead of being like Switzerland, small, smart, sustainable, we are on our way to India, overpopulated, overcrowded, and unsustainable.

Along the way the loudest, stupidest voices cried out for believers in the apocalyptic cult religions of Islam, Christianity, and others, to come here, and make a buck or two, because that's all we care about. Making a buck, working your butt off, riding high on the smooth asphalt put down by the greatest generation, and making sure the revolving doormat that the US people and nation have become continue the process of degrading the land-base and dishonoring its inheritors, by electing the stupidest people possible, and rewarding the rapacious global rich set and excoriating the hard working average citizen until politically neuter.

Yes, like why do socialists care so much about race?

Egalitarians need to first identify and classify the inequality before they can 'fix' it.
Egalitarians (socialists) don't know how to crate wealth so the only way they can 'fix' it is to plunder the wealth of others or discriminate one group to assuage another.

Why won't anyone discuss 'the why' this study was conducted.

When Whites become a minority, can we then get special consideration through Affirmative Action? Just trying to plan for the future.

Whites will become a minority but will remain the largest minority for many decades, to be replaced by "other", the blend of many nationalities.

lol, funny watching the older "white" generation struggle with their identity of being some sort of "pure race" that was "always white".

Hmm, what is a "white" anyway:

" From the 1970s to the 1990s, the Republican Party flipped the votes of Southern whites—but they neglected and comprehensively lost the black vote. Now Democrats are hoping to hold onto their death-grip on minority voters, and they are counting on this vote to rise—but they are pursuing this strategy at the expense of throwing away the white vote. I'm not sure that this quite captures the awfulness of the whole "coalition of the ascendant" strategy. Because it hitches the Democratic Party's future to voting based on racial and ethnic loyalties, it is basically a strategy that consists of playing the race card from now until the end of time.

As despicable as this strategy is, it is also contains the seeds of its own destruction. The more dependent Democrats become on the racial vote, the more vulnerable they are if they lose any of it."

"Elbert Guillory has just shown us the way forward.

Guillory is a Louisiana state senator who caused a stir last year when he switched from the Democratic Party to the Republican Party. That would not have been news if Guillory were white; in fact, he would have been pretty far behind the curve. But Guillory is black and represents a poor black district, which makes his spirited defense of the Republican Party much more significant.

Now Guillory is back with a stunning new ad which doesn't just criticize incumbent Senator Mary Landrieu—Guillory supports her challenger, Bill Cassidy—but also dismantles the Democratic Party entire claim to the black vote."

Apparently the "non-white majority" troll didn't get the message and is a victim of liberal race-baiting.

It's not about race, ...it's about culture and class level.

The traditional culture of the USA created the various conditions for which minority immigrants desired to flock to, even leaving their own failed cultures behind. The loss of traditional American cultural identity is not a good thing for anyone, regardless of race.

The same is the case with muslims flooding into Europe. I don't see many Europeans flooding into the failed cultures of the middle east, for example.

For some reason this comment reminded me of the gentrification process that occurs in cities...

"If there are two things MSNBC host Chris Matthews is known for, they're his love for President Barack Obama and his knack for assuming that everyone who disagrees with him is a racist. It's a bit shocking, therefore, to hear him tell Obama to lay off the racial politics not once, but twice."
