Study: America becoming less white, turning gray

Posted: Updated:
The United States of America is in the midst of a major shift.  Caucasians are becoming the minority at a time when a record number of people are aging.  The latest Pew Research study shows the shifts are happening at the same, which is not only rare but putting stress on everything from politics to purses.

The study shows by 2060 the U.S. will be home to as many 85-year-olds as kids younger than five.  The report also shows that by 2060, our country will be only 43% white, referring to a population once black and white transforming into a rainbow.
