Hispanics in 2013 will become the majority in the 8th largest economy in the world
According to U.S. Census Bureau data, in 2013 Hispanics will overtake non-Hispanic whites or “Anglos” as the largest ethnic group in California. This is more evidence proving the United States of America is quickly transforming into a minority majority country.
Census data shows:
California had 37.69 million residents last July 1, 353,000 more than a year earlier. Hispanics and Asians accounted for virtually all of the growth. The white population fell by 37,000.
At that rate Hispanics will eclipse whites, who have dominated California since statehood, sometime in 2013. Since 1990, the white population has declined by 2.1 million while the Hispanic population has grown by 6.3 million.
Hispanics will soon have the power to shape their future in the state of California. Controversial national legislation; such as the Dream Act, used as a political football to divide the electorate will be irrelevant. Hispanics in California can use their voting power; along with a strong coalition, to pursue the passage of the Dream Act soon than later.
Currently, minorities are only 37 percent of the US populations. Majority of demographers had projected non-Hispanic whites or “Anglos” wouldn’t become a minority by 2050, but has been updated to 2040.
New Census data also concluded for the first time ever; non-white babies accounted for over half of all U.S. births last year. The United States is almost the melting pot everyone predicted it would be in the past
