Some Hispanic folk told us a long time ago they were going to take back their land—including California and Texas. While the arrogant powers that be scoffed and put their trust in superior firepower, they apparently never saw this population and political revolution coming. The conquest of Florida is nearly complete. Texas? Hmmm. (You might get a kick out of the Tea Party candidate commercial. Do folks really think people of color are that naive that they would ALWAYS go for the okie-doke?
Hispanics in California now outnumber whites
Hispanics were projected to become the largest ethnic group in California in March, overtaking whites for the first time in the state’s history.
That makes California the second US state – after New Mexico – with more people of Hispanic origin than any other ethnicity.
And where California leads, America often follows, as Alastair Leithead reports from Los Angeles.
