Whites, Latinos hit population parity in Calif.
San Francisco Chronicle ^ | July 1, 2013 | JULIET WILLIAMS

SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) — State demographers estimate that whites and Latinos are now an equal share of California's population, with Latinos poised to become a plurality by early next year.

Latino leaders planned a modest rally Monday at the state Capitol to mark the milestone, which researchers at the state Department of Finance had previously projected would be achieved mid-year.

"At this point, the numbers are very, very close," said Bill Schooling, head of the demographic research unit of the State Department of Finance. He said officials do not plan to estimate the exact date when Latinos begin overtaking whites, but they are expected to become the state's largest ethnicity in early 2014.

Whites and Latinos each comprise about 39 percent of California's population after a long-running demographic shift that already has altered state politics, the economy and culture.

Monday's rally was intended to mark the occasion and remind state lawmakers of Latinos' increasing clout, said Orlando Fuentas, president of the Latino Democratic Club of Sacramento.

This should be expected when half of the population of Mexico moves to California. It’s not rocket science.

Unfortunately, disadvantaged minority benefits will continue until the percentage equals 110%.

Why are they celebrating?

As more Latino’s come into California and the White population continues falling, who do they think will pay the welfare, the taxes, the healthcare?

They are celebrating the demise of the freebies they came to Californian for.

White people keep this country afloat. Without white people working the country cannot survive. Sooner or later just printing mo’ money aint gonna cut the mustard.

When non Latino Whites dropped under 50% of the state's population, Gray Davis and Hispanic leaders stood on the capital steps of Sacramento to celebrate the event.

Imagine the reverse, Latinos dropping below 50%, and Whites meeting to celebrate the event. You'd never hear the end of it.

Now would be a good time to throw California out of the union before it’s too late. 49 states ain’t so bad. We can easily fix the flag.

53% of Hispanics self-describe themselves as white.

Milestone? It is a good thing whites don't care about race because we are getting our asses handed to us because we don't. Yeah for colorblindness!

So according to the administration, things should be much better now, right?
After all, the whites were a constant obstacle to progress, and with a whites now a minority, they are no longer a problem. Can't get much more diverse than this.
The goal is met. California is now the Democrats paradise on earth.

How often will this milestone be reached? It seems to newspapers announce this same news every year recently.

My wife and I left California, taking with us her County pension and healthcare benefits, and we moved to Arizona (7.5% pay raise, via state income tax savings, is nice as well).

Guess our departure tipped the scales in favor of the fiends of the Grupo de Ocho.

“...who do they think will pay the welfare, the taxes, the healthcare?”

The rest of America will, when CA goes totally bankrupt, in 5-7 years.
