Whites Are Minority in Texas: Texas officially a 'Majority-Minority' State
Houston News/Michael Berry Show ^ | May 25, 2012 | KTRH staff

With more than half the population being a non-white 55.2 percent, Texas joins New Mexico, California, Hawaii, and Washington D.C. with a "majority-minority" status, according to the U.S. Census Bureau.

Majority-minority is a legal term used to describe a U.S. state that has a racial composition of less than 50 percent white. The Census Bureau defines individuals who are considered 'white' as non-Hispanics who have family origins in Europe, the Middle East, or North Africa.

If this was happening in a different country, we’d call it ethnic cleansing. 60% of Hispanics vote for the more liberal candidate. Adding more and more means we lose Texas and any chance at the presidency. Anyone who claims this is a non-issue is fooling themselves. This is a fundamental change to the country in a very bad direction - the left.

No, the “bennies” are just the carrot on the stick to bring America into full blown Communism, where we are all peasants and slaves, and serve no purpose but to serve the state.

If this is conclusively proven, Governor Perry must immediately move to require all State, City, County and Town governments to realign any and all affirmative action plans, procedures, contract set-asides, etc. to reflect whites’ new minority status.

I recall when whites became official minority in Cleveland ~1999, and blacks the majority ethnic group; it was suggested by some that it was time to do away with programs supporting blacks, since they were now the majority. Bottom line, legally the term "minority" is defined by statute as black, hispanic, and American-Indian... so whites can never be eligible for "minority" programs, and likewise even if they become the majority, those races will never become ineligible. Ain't life sweet!

Brave and valiant folks, those Texians of 1836, hispanic and caucasian alike.

They fought off totalian rule, much bloodshed, freedom fighters all. I honor them.

Then the word ‘minority’ should be officially replaced with ‘undeserving privileged person’.

Anybody know the racial demographics of Texas, both in 1836 (independence) and at statehood (1845)?

Massively, almost totally American, like 84% to 97% American, remove the slaves from that count and you will see how the voters of early Texas created a nation, and then the greatest state in America.

Yes, and in some ways I wish we could live in that past. The reality in 2012 is that statism is overtaking America in the guise of “fairness” and “redistribution of wealth.”

The flood across the border is drowning America, and the sooner we wake up and recognize it’s not about race but ideology, the better off we’ll be.

As I stated in my first comment, it’s not about race but about voting trends. Don’t get so caught up in “race” that you miss the whole point of what is happening before your very eyes.

Hence the old joke:
What do you call a Texan?
A Mexican on his way to Oklahoma...

Perry can look out his office window to East Austin which is full of illegals. He’s done nothing to send them packing. In fact, he’s done everything he can to keep them here with all the perks. We’ve had his Dream Act for many years in Texas.

Well.... None of my friends or family labeled themselves as white on the census in a preventative redistricting measure. I wouldn’t put too much stock in that census. We are all hispanics now.

It has nothing to do with race. It has everything to do with voting patterns, and this is a bad omen.

I don't understand your post, can you translate it?

Yes, I will translate it for you.

When the demographics shift, through illegal immigration or rewarding welfare mothers for having children out of wedlock, or other means, which results in a flood of Democrat voters who will destroy America as we once knew it, that is a bad thing.

We can then wave bye-bye to liberty and the very reason America was founded.

America as we know it will no longer exist.

Is that simpler for you to understand? Apologies for your confusion.

So race has nothing to do with it, voting patterns are everything, and in that is a bad omen, I still don’t get that.

Isn’t the race and how the people of that race vote, connected in the voting patterns?

What is "the whole point of what is happening before your very eyes."?
