    If we are truly color-blind, then the composition of our population now shouldn't matter.

    And the composition of our population in 2035 shouldn't matter.

    So, moving whites to a minority position in the future shouldn't be something to cheer.  It should be something that becomes irrelevant.

    The goal should not be to replace one power group with a new power group.

    The goal should be to create a society in which all people can follow their dreams without facing bias.

      And I'd like to live there, but it doesn't exist. We've tried to create the society you envisioned, but it hasn't happened. JFK spoke well of this:

      ...those who foolishly sought power by riding the back of the tiger ended up inside

      This "Chrisshun Nayshun," (thank you Lawdy Jaysus),  built its entire empire on the backs of the poor, disenfranchised, and people it often derided as sub-human (the Three-Fifths Compromise is an example).

      Gleeful that "white culture" (thank you Glenn Beck) will experience a setback, and teabaggers heads will explode as their Euro-centric "superiority" fades into oblivion?

      Yup!
