By ALICIA A. CALDWELL

EL PASO, Texas (AP) - Texas has become the fourth state to have a non-white majority population, the U.S. Census Bureau said Thursday, a trend driven by a surging number of Hispanics moving to the state.

According to the population estimates based on the 2000 Census, about 50.2 percent of Texans are now minorities. In the 2000 Census, minorities made up about 47 percent of the population in the second-largest state.

Texas joins California, New Mexico and Hawaii as states with majority-minority populations - with Hispanics the largest group in every state but Hawaii, where it is Asian-Americans.

Five other states - Maryland, Mississippi, Georgia, New York and Arizona - aren't far behind, with about 40 percent minorities.

Public policy analysts said these states and the country as a whole need to bring minority education and professional achievement to the levels of whites. Otherwise, these areas risk becoming poorer and less competitive.

William Frey, a demographer at the Brookings Institution in Washington, D.C., said lawmakers need to start with immigration reform, while striving to bring minorities' education and salary levels in line with Anglos.

"Immigration is good for the United States ... it's important for us to keep our doors open, but we need to keep an eye on the people coming in," Frey said. "While initially it will be a state problem, eventually it will be a national issue, and education is the best way to deal with it."

Complications from the cultural shift aren't likely to be exclusive to states that already have majority-minority populations, Frey said.

Nevada, for instance, has seen a massive influx of minorities in the last 15 years, reducing the percentage of Anglos since the 1990s from nearly 80 percent to about 60 percent. Such a rapid shift is likely to cause growing pains that include trying to balance the needs of a bigger and younger minority community with an aging Anglo community, Frey said.

"That's the kind of state that is going to have to deal with quick transition," Frey said.

Though some areas may never see this shift, the country as a whole is expected to continue the trend first noticed more than a decade ago.

The nation should be more than half minorities by 2050, said Steve Murdock, a demographer at the University of Texas at San Antonio.

"If you look in the 1990s, in every one of the 50 states, non-Anglo Hispanic populations grew faster than Anglo populations," Murdock said. "It's a very pervasive pattern."

w00t!

That's fucking great! I can't wait until Arizona gets there. It seems real close already.


At what point then, do current people classified as minorites stop being refered to as such and that lable then given to Whitey?

When whitey is finally gone, it's going to be a much better place to be.

about 50.2 percent of Texans are now minorities


Are you familar with the robot expression "does not compute"?



PS: I understand what they're saying, it's just a poor choice of wording.

Am I the only one that finds Majority-Minority an oxymoron?

Either it's one way or the other!

I'm now a minority, the mexicans are the majority. Simple as that.

No your ethnocentric.

You don't hate people because of their skin color, but because of their culture.

It is all good, as your 'judging' them by their character.

The only reason you'd care is if you are racist.

The other reason to care is because of specialized government subsidies going to "minorities" that are no longer minorities.

Other wise its only an interesting statistic.

No. You're just a racist if you weren't born brown.


It'll be REAL interesting to see the racist cheers from the La Raza shitbags.

Obvious racists would cheer this news as it would underscore their racial-superiority ideas and their aim of having "bronze-power" overtake "white society" - just as much as the KKK and Aryan Nation would cheer anything that promotes "white-power" over minorities.

It's not much of a surprise. I don't need to read about it, all I have to do is look out of a window. I doubt many here in Texas will give a damn anyway.

I'm sure that the statistical demographics in 1870's AZ, New Mexico and Texas were majority of 'minority' - the only reason you guys can't bitch about those days is because only white males were counted, and therefore there's no data.

Yeah, but again. How many are hispanic? How many hispanics want a secure border? Afterall if they are the majority then they have the power to get things done. So what are they going to do to secure our borders?

Nothing, as a matter of fact they want it wide the fuck open.

Interesting...Mexicans are constantly cheering about the fact that they are becoming the majority in the U.S. and that's considered the right thing to think, whites that don't necessarily feel the same way about it are racists.

An old chinese proverb...paraphrasing here.."may you live in interesting times".

It will be interesting to see what the next few decades hold for the good ol US-of-A. Especially in the minority-majority states. Will it bring us prosperity or a slow and steady decline? Regardless, a significant event is the racial & cultural change taking place right now. We'll have to wait and see. According to some, initial results don't look promising.

I don't believe that concerning ourselves over racial demographics has any bearing on "America staying strong". I'm most definitely not liberal, and I'm also most definitely not Republican.

The current illegal immigration issue IS problem I want resolved, but I am not going to stoop to racism over it.

Well, you know the Aztec's weren't the kindest folks on planet earth. They did tend to actively slaughter their own and others in brutal and inhumane pagan sacrifices. They also were not very popular with the surrounding indian tribes, who actively fought along side Cortes against the Aztec Empire. Food for thought.

Well truth is America became what it is based on a belief in God and White men taking care of business. If you think that hispanics can do a better job with it ,then you are mistaken. Look what we have done as a country so far. Now go look at everything south of our border. Ancient people who have yet to make their shitholes into anything. If we can do it, why can't they? They had a head start on us even. All they will do is try and turn us into the same shithole they came from.

Most illegal immigrants have brown skin;

Most illegal immigrants do not contribute as much to the economy as they take;

More brown on the map means a decline in the socio-economic composition of an area;

I prefer a higher socio-economic influence in my area.
