What's All That Buzz 2-7-11

According to a Brookings Institution analysis of the census data released Monday, whites continues to decline as a portion of the American population in 2009. Whites are now the minority in nursery schools, preschools and kindergarten in eight states- Arizona, California, Florida, Hawaii, Mississippi, Nevada, New Mexico and Texas.
