Digital and Radio Facts: In a report released by ABC News, the number of radical hate groups and militias has exploded in recent years in reaction to the changing makeup of America. Experts that track hate groups warned that new census figures showing the majority of babies born in 2011 were non-white could fuel those simmering tensions.”White supremacist groups have been having a meltdown since the census bureau predicted that non-Hispanic whites would lose the majority by 2050,” said Mark Potok, spokesman for the Southern Poverty Law Center, which monitors hate groups. “The demographic change in this country is the single most important driver in the growth of hate groups and extremist groups over the last few years.”The data released this week revealed a tipping point in the country’s demographic shift. For the first time in the country’s history, more minority children were born than white children, setting the stage for an eventual non-white majority in America’s population.
