Whites are now minority in Texas

Unread post by SWblocks-Veteran » August 16th, 2005, 5:54 pm

A July 2004 population estimate placed the number of non-Hispanic whites in the nation's second-most-populous state at 11.2 million, or 49.7 percent of the population.

Texas joins Hawaii, New Mexico, California and the District of Columbia as a "majority-minority" state, the Census Bureau said.

Arizona, Georgia, Maryland, Mississippi and New York have white populations of about 60 percent, and the Census Bureau said they are in line for majority-minority status.

Nationwide, non-Hispanic whites comprise 67 percent of the US population.

Hispanics have overtaken blacks as the largest minority group, with a population of 41.3 million, or 14 percent of the US population. California had the largest Hispanic population at 12.4 million people, while New Mexico had the highest concentration of Hispanics at 43 percent.

Blacks comprise 13 percent of the US population at 39.2 million people. New York State has the largest black population with 3.5 million while the capital, Washington DC, has the highest proportion of blacks at 59 percent.

There are 13.9 million Asians in the United States, representing 4.7 percent of the population. California, the nation's most-populous state, has the largest Asian population at 4.8 million. Hawaii was the state with the highest concentration of Asians at 58 percent.

whites will soon be a minority in the US as a whole, but they will still hold political power for many years because many of the immigrants will not have citizenship or be too young to vote.

Also, Blacks are the only minority group in the US that seems politically engaged at all. Latinos are jaded about politics and Asians don't seem to care much about it.

Blacks ought to be involved in Politics. Even if Law freed them just before the Civil War most couldn't vote until the late 60's.
By the way Blacks are around 13% of Tx.

that whole Texas white count has been korrupted since days old
raza was not allowed to claim anything but white on birth certificate records back then
if you were anything but negro, you had to sign white on that certificate, "fact!"
so this b.s. about blancos going minority are long overdue
blancos where a minority even back when tejas was overtaken my mercenaries from the u.s.
they just like to claim that the mexicans where few and far between
puro pedo
