When the population of a region has their population go under 50% "white-non Hispanic" (wNH is a census category self defined) then the region is said to be "minority -majority"(MM). According to the latest census, Nevada has become the fifth state to become MM.

White Non-Hispanic population by state (estimate as of July 1, 2016)
22.1% Hawaii
37.7% California
38.1% New Mexico
42.6% Texas
49.9% Nevada
51.5% Maryland
53.4% Georgia
54.9% Florida
55.5% Arizona
55.8% New York
55.8% New Jersey
56.9% Mississippi
59.0% Louisiana
61.2% Alaska
61.3% United States

Probably by the 2040 census will the USA become MM.

In all 50 states the minority population is growing faster than the WNH population. But in ten states, the WNH population is declining (2010-2016) in absolute terms as well.

Why are you saying "population decline' of WNH instead of 'excessive breeding' and 'illegal immigration' by opposing categories?

The WNH population is estimated to have increased by 7.4 million from 2010-2016, while the minority population increased by 7.0 million.

I changed my summary statement to:
In all 50 states the minority population is growing faster than the WNH population.

There is no value judgement in this summary.

But in ten states, the WNH population is declining (2010-2016) in absolute terms as well.
Decline in WNH population
Illinois -182,954
Pennsylvania -99,306
Connecticut -80,906
New Jersey -78,949
New Mexico -34,634
West Virginia -27,919
Rhode Island -22,838
Michigan -11,364
Vermont -3,590
Maine -1,005

By 2020 nine states are projected to lose one congressional seat.
Illinois
Pennsylvania
Connecticut
West Virginia
Rhode Island
Michigan
New York
Wisconsin
Alabama

Oregon, Colorado, New Mexico, and North Carolina are projected to gain one seat. Florida is projected to gain two seats, and Texas three.

I don't think so. I am willing to bet if you ask someone which of these 14 states is minority-majority most people will think they all are. In fact only five of them are MM, but all 14 are skewed below the national average.

Alaska may confuse some people as they don't think in terms of native Americans.

The lamestream media was goo-goo a few years back when white births fell below 50% of births for the first time. They go goo-goo pretty much any time some news of white demographic decline happens. They have done this all my life, no reason they will stop now.

The fact that Nevada's minority population just passed 50% is probably not big news, because most people assume that happened a long time ago.

Yeah, I"m not picking up on what your saying? Maybe not enough caffeine yet. There are many places in Alaska where whites are definitely the minority.

All I was saying was that if you give that list of 14 states to your average person and ask them which ones have "white-non Hispanic" population in the minority, most people will say all of them except possibly Alaska. I think a lot of people don't have any idea who lives in Alaska.

In reality only five states a minority-majority and Nevada just joined the club this year.

Mostly Eskimos and native Indians or Eskimo ancestry and Native Indian ancestry with some white people?

It does occur to me that of the five states with minority majority, that they are all conquered territory. Hawaii has an predominately Asian, Polynesian population, and four states that USA took in the Texas Revolution and the Mexican American war.

The four states with over 30% African American population are Maryland, Georgia, Mississippi, and Louisiana

It may be a more newsworthy event when some of the original 13 colonies become minority majority.
