Hispanics will soon overtake whites in California

SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) — State demographers say California’s Hispanic population will equal that of whites within six months and exceed it early next year — a milestone in the country’s racial and ethnic shifts.

Population projections released today by the state Department of Finance show that Hispanics will become the dominant ethnic group in California for the first time.

By 2020, demographers say Hispanics will be about 41 percent of California’s population, with whites less than 37 percent.

The white population will fall to about 30 percent by 2060 from the current 39 percent, affecting politics and public policy in the nation’s most populous state. Whites currently lack a majority in only Hawaii and New Mexico.

The report says California’s population will hit 50 million in 2049.

At what point will Hispanics not be treated as a "minority" and given many advantages?

Do you think this was part of the plan when we won California from Mexico. It might take decades after we win a war with a foriegn country, but sooner or later we get all there trash and they begin to sucks off the system and brings this country down. We do not need their 3rd world type of living where they live 20 in a house and decay the neighborhoods that our great grandparents built after coming to this country with nothing, expecting nothing and working hard to achieve their upward mobility. The new imigrants comes to this country to take benefits that we compasionately give them and only bring a decaying, violent and baby making type of society that will evently destroy this great nation.
