Interesting, as I know people who just moved down from Maine ... according to them, that scenario is rapidly changing.  I have no issue with Hispanics, Blacks, Asians, etc., as long as they are here LEGALLY ... not through asylum, not through being classified as 'displaced'  not through illegal parents giving birth, etc., and most importantly are willing to assimilate to the American culture and don't expect to be labeled and given special perks as a hyphenated American!!
"I believe in the United States of America as a Government of the people, by the people, for the people; whose just powers are derived from the consent of the governed; a democracy in a republic; a sovereign nation of many sovereign states; a perfect union one and inseparable; established upon those principles of freedom, equality, justice and humanity for which American patriots sacrificed their lives and fortunes. I therefore believe it is my duty to my country to love it; to support its Constitution; to obey it laws; to respect its flag; and to defend it against all enemies." -William Page

There has been a significant change in the demographics in North Dakota as well, at least in the NW part. Far more blacks and Latinos than before, but we got people from all over during the oil boom, and most I have met seem like decent folks.

Kentucky doesn't get any more snow than any other Midwest state. 
I suppose I did my part to contribute to this horrible, horrible statistic, though.  I gave birth to five white children. Sorry, not sorry.

All largely rural states. The only one with a substantial city in its bounds is probably Kentucky (Louisville).

That used to be the predominant sentiment, but the question rapidly is evolving into do they have an issue with us.

For example I constantly hear my little community being criticized for being whiter than the surrounding metropolis, as if there's something wrong with that.

Eastern W.Va is being over run with VA and DC liberals who commute or use the metro train and they are changing the state.  Plans are for more metro rails  in W.Va for folks who work in VA or DC
The rest of W.Va is dirt poor.

Drove down I-77 last year through W.Va  could not believe the poverty.

I've seen maps with data like this on them before, at least, 9 of those states have relatively small populations, maybe one can say every single one of them do. Come on? North Dakota and Wyoming? I know ND doesn't even have a million people. That is part of the equation too.

This is how some see demographics in the long term. So, if minorities continued to vote Democrat, unfortunately, a lot of what DC rules on will come down to each of us.  A more central government if everything is controlled by one party.

 It does not mean though, that necessarily, people will continue to vote democrat. That could change.  It's been the trend for minorities to vote democrat, conservatives must try to get their message across more to minorities.

One could also say, a number of those states are not leading in prosperity, new businesses moving in. That is unfortunate but just the facts.

I thought the Whitest state in America was the state of oppression, at least that what I keep hearing from Blacks, Hispanics and SJW's.  :whistle:

WTF? ND is the nation's second largest oil producer, second only to Texas. That doesn't even consider the agricultural production. that Bakken Oil boom extended to Montana, Wyoming is a major in the oil and gas community, too. Thats WHY the demographics of these states are changing --people looking for work--and finding it!

We're impressed by your knowledge, but no, I doubt if ND is much whiter than before, in fact people of all colors have gone there. And I doubt if the population is over 1,000,000.

No, the population is not over 1 million (we like it that way, frankly). We produce more barrels of oil per day than we have people, by a significant margin.

My point was that the economy is what attracted people there from all 50 states, multiple provinces of Canada, a bunch of other countries (besides Mexico and central America), even Puerto Rico. We counted all 50 states' license plates in the local Walmart parking lot, including Hawaii (it was a game for us). Because the Obama Administration could not stop an oil boom that mainly happened on private land, for a while, western North Dakota was THE shining economic beacon in a dark economy.

The change in demographics with a smaller population is marked. When twenty years ago whites made up 95+ percent of the population, now the complexion of the State has changed. Thankfully, the folks who came there for the oil boom and who have stayed, came to work, to get jobs, for the most part, and seem like a pretty decent lot over all.
I have worked with people from all over the US, Mexico, Serbia, Moldova, Cape Verde Islands, Canada, and other places, not just the usual influx of Texans and Rocky Mountain oilfield hands. Solid folks. So in our case, the change in demographics isn't such a bad thing because most of the people who came in were not looking for a handout, just an opportunity to make something of/for themselves. You don't deal with our winters just to get a welfare check when you can do that in a much nicer climate.

But when a town of 14K triples in size, the demographic changes are striking.

Skin color doesn't matter, the character does, voting blocs matter too. That gives people apprehension.  It's a bit of a shame, things work out this way. I can be good friends with a person who is "X" but he's going to vote a certain way, it kind of cancels my vote out. You just have to look at certain states, perhaps all states to see that at work.

It's not just ethnic groups, check out for example on how you expect the vote to go on in Utah and that is our heavily Mormon state in the Union.

Tom, character counts. Most of the people I have met who moved into our region are hard working people who don't generally buy into the victimhood bit--or are getting over it. They moved into an area untouched by race riots, Social Justice warriors, where what you do is a measure of who you are. While there were some lingering prejudices from the Indian wars (yes, they go back that far), even those are generally lost. The result has been folks from all over coming into a place where your character and accomplishments outweigh anything else, where honest, hard working people are welcome, pretty much regardless of what color they are or what language they spoke where they originally came from.
If we are going to have that 'melting pot' and retain/regain the Republic our founders envisioned, we have to lead by example. That is the America people should crave, not a welfare check, food stamps, and public housing.

Funny thing, though, "White" isn't just a skin color, but a whole range of cultural values which epitomize (what I think) is the best of American culture--get back to wanting better for your kids, and we all have that in common. All we need to do is agree on the best way for everyone to achieve that.

Exactly!  Western, American, Enlightenment values are being attacked on a racial basis.  To better understand the fight, you have only to identify the opponent to see what is being fought here and what the stakes are.
