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

Posted on 07/02/2013 6:13:14 AM PDT by artichokegrower

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.

Latino leaders planned a modest rally Monday at the state Capitol to mark the milestone,...

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.

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.

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.

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

Problem not limited to CA. Texas not far behind. We’ve seen this in Europe as well with their native populations declining vis a vis immigrant groups in that continent. The problem is very simple. White populations across the globe are ageing and have low birthrates.

Boy you said it.

I don’t buy the “a revolution is coming” BS ... but can we just let CA go? Please? I’ll move back to the real world. I promise.

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

The rats never care about the longterm sustenance, but only the immediate benefit they can obtain for themselves over the next parasite. It has always been a selfish race to get their own share first before the system collapses!

I’ve stated this before here. The more they come in, the more freebies they take out. The real people propping up the state are the rich guys, especially the Jews.

Since the Dems decided to create another victim group they can provide with minority business set asides and affirmative action. There are non-Hispanic whites and Hispanic whites (Hello, George Zimmerman.)

So then Whites should take their place on the hierarchy of victimhood.

A “modest” celebration of racial supremacy.

Mexicans: Do all your celebrating now.

In just a few more years, after all of the Chinese have been moved into the houses bought for cash, the Asians will be the plurality.

Mexifornia will soon be Chinafornia.

I hope California can serve as a magnet for invading illegal hordes much the way San Fransicko serves as a magnet for perverts.

It was estimated a decade ago that 1 in 8-10 people living in America was illegal. One can only imagine what that ratio is today. Expect the number to flip after amesty for all. Wanna bet the Mexicans will be wishing they hadn’t pushed this when they’re kicked out by middle easterners in 5 years?

>>>53% of Hispanics self-describe themselves as white.<<<

It means they are literate enough and have a knowledge in anthropology.

Hispanics aren’t a race but ethnicity and they are predominantly Caucasian.

But they have no problem being considered an aggrieved minority that deserves special rights and entitlements.
