Mary Kenny: Who breeds wins: falling birth rates pose challenges
A remarkable cultural shift was apparent in the US over the past week: the 'New York Times' disclosed that white Americans are now destined to be a minority in the future of the US.
Fewer than half of American births are now to white mothers: more than 50pc are to black, mixed-race or Hispanic families.
For some people, this might seem an alarming change: the US was constructed, historically, on its White, Anglo-Saxon, Protestant basis. The founding fathers were white Protestants who pioneered a new democracy with Bible and gun.
