Brown Is the New White

A NY Times op-ed brags:
“Brown Is the New White: How the Demographic Revolution Has Created a New American Majority”

The demographic revolution of the past 50 years has transformed the United States from a predominantly white country into a truly multiracial nation. People of color have grown to 38 percent of the population today from 12 percent in 1966, and that metamorphosis paved the path to electing the first African-American president.

In November, Democrats have the chance to secure a decades-long electoral majority for decades, ...

The target audience for ads, swing voters, is dwindling. A 2015 study by a Michigan State University assistant professor, Corwin Smidt, shows that voters are more polarized than at any time in the past 60 years, and just 5 percent — about six million people in the 2012 electorate — are swing voters. By comparison, the number of eligible minority voters in 2012 who didn’t make it to the polls was more than 25 million. …

In 2016, there’s still time to redirect resources to what we know works: mobilizing voters of color.
I think that is correct. It is hardly worthwhile for the Democrat Party to bother trying to persuade white swing voters. Its policies have been bad for those voters, and it has little to offer.

The Democrat strategy is to just keep flooding the country with non-whites and non-Christians, and sell then with a message of white hatred and identity politics.
