When were Caucasians ever 100% of the American population? Another question asked by an ignorant racist.

KTJoe 08/10/2018 at 04:52.

Due to the great melting pot of America "I Have a Dream" speech, Race being a thing of the past. White people never 100% of population more like 60.99%.

Huh? 08/10/2018 at 01:52.

White people have never made up 100 % of the American population. The premise of your question is wrong.

"White people" were never 100% of the American population and as recently as 2013 Caucasians still made up 79% of the US.

White people were never 100% of the population. What history lessons have you had?

JG 08/10/2018 at 05:52.

They never WERE 100% of the U.S. population. NATIVE AMERICANS, ALASKAN NATIVES (ALEUTIANS, INUITS, etc.) and HAWAIIAN NATIVES were HERE before anyone else.

White people have never made up 100% of the American population.

Andy F 08/10/2018 at 04:52.

Since the first slave ships brought black African laborers to Jamestown, VA in the 1600s, there have been fairly large numbers of African Americans in America -- first in the various British colonies, then in the newly established United States following the Revolution.

So white people have never been 100% of the American population. In addition, Florida, Texas, California, New Mexico, Colorado and Arizona all were Spanish-speaking at different times in the past, and when white Anglos conquered and acquired these states in the wake of the Mexican-American War, neither the "white" Spanish speakers nor the mixed-race Spanish speakers were completely driven out. The continental US, Alaska and Hawaii also all include sizeable pockets of Native Americans, who in some cases form "nations" within the framework of the USA. Puerto Rico also has been "American" since US troops conquered it during the Spanish American War, and not all Puerto Ricans are white.

In the West, especially, significant populations of Japanese and Chinese immigrants were present by the late 1800s.


So your question is wrong about white people EVER making up 100% of the American population. And whether you love us or hate us, we're not down to only 40% of the population now.

Why this question, then?

The population, according to the US census is 80% of the population who have identified themselves as Caucasian, 13% Black, 1% Asian, 2% Native American and 4% bi-racial.

Anonymous 08/10/2018 at 00:52.

It was never 100% and native Americans were not dead from 400 years of wars and settlers.

Europeans moved here by huge numbers to avoid continental wars and economic downturns; plus Africans and Asians were brought here as slaves.

They were never 100 percent since there were " Native Americans " here before the conquest

(among other unflattering terms) of white man's behavior in this part of the world.

John 08/10/2018 at 12:52.

Whites were never 100% of the population and they are 72% right now. Not 40.

There was a time when white people made up 100% of America? I guess Native Americans are WHITE people, LOL! Just don’t tell THEM that!

Deliberate government policies to change the demographics.

Kevin7 08/10/2018 at 03:52.

It has been 100 percent.Native Americans,Blacks and some other non-Whites have been in America since 1776 common era if not earlier

LEFT 08/10/2018 at 02:52.

It was never 100% even in the 1950s whites were 90% of the USA.

CogitoErgoCogitoSum 08/10/2018 at 00:52.

White people make up closer to 65-70%.

White people have never made up 100% of the American population.

White people are also the only tolerant race on the planet willing to allow immigration en masse. We are the only race that doesnt believe in or hold an ethnostate of our own. We are the only societies who do not put ethnic limits or immigration limits on foreigners, and have no laws or institutionaluzed discrimatory practices that regulate such things.

Also, "White" is a broad, racist term that fails to grasp or appreciate the nuance and diversity of the many European cultures. The Dutch are actually a small minority in America, grossly under-represented, but you wouldnt know that if you group all "whtie people" together into one category.

Jerry 08/10/2018 at 00:52.

Newsflash! Just a few hundred years ago the white population of the American continents was ZERO percent. And it has NEVER been 100%. Jeez.

Gypsyfish 08/10/2018 at 00:52.

Even a Russian troll should not be just making numbers up. The US population has been mixed since the very beginning- slaves from African, Native American, immigrants from China, Japan, etc.- all kinds of people. And "white" people are still the majority in the US.

Foxhole 08/10/2018 at 00:52.

By you imagining it happening.

Ethan 08/10/2018 at 16:02.

they never did funny person. there were always real americans living in the country. they are called Natives.

Eliezer 08/10/2018 at 11:52.

Never was 100% white. You forget that there were Native Americans living here when Columbus lost his way and showed up here. Then the Spaniards came, British came and then the settlers from Europe, slaves, Chinese, Japanese. You missed a whole lot of people! :) Check your history books again.

Anna D 08/10/2018 at 08:52.

Huh? You realize that the Native Americans are not caucasian, right? And there's still a way higher percentage of caucasian people in the states than your ridiculous stat impLIES.

David 08/10/2018 at 05:52.

Because: 1) White people were never 100% of the population; and 2) White people foolishly support the butchering of unborn babies. "Thou shalt not kill" (6th Commandment).

White people were never 100% of the population. When the Europeans came to America, there were already Native Americans living here. How could the population ever be 100% White anyway?
