It's like the 1850s in reverse.

In fairness, white folks are going to dip below the 50% mark relatively soonish. 2030-2040 looks to be the target date, if current population trends continue. Not just by immigration, but birth rates as well. White folks will still be the largest racial group--both born here, and immigrants--but white folks will be outnumbered by black, brown, yellow, and all the other colors of the rainbow. Mixed folks like myself are going to be even more populous as well. So maybe folks might want to can the race stuff, because it's only going to bite you on the ass...

FTFA: There are roughly 15 million Latinos and 15 million non-Hispanic whites in California and the state Department of Finance said that the two populations will be officially even by mid-2013. By early 2014, the department projected, "the Hispanic population will become the plurality in California for the first time since California became a state."

Yeah, that's the qualifier. San Francisco was founded in 1776, and it wasn't founded by the British. Latinos have been traveling between North and South LONG since before Mexico was a nation.

We will correct this problem the way we always have by making white hispanics into regular white people.

Yep... well, partially we'll accept them, partially they will abandon it as a cultural identifier as they become more "native" by the 3rd generation or so. "White culutural identity" identity in this country is ver good at slowly absorbing most minorities that used to be "the other" in our minds.

Esperanza Gomez reminds of the porn version of Sofia Vegara.  So... you know.. that's pretty hot.

Also, they are both Colombian which I find interesting.  Colombian women are pretty hot.  What's up with that?

Not really. -- "The results of  The Children of Immigrants Longitudinal Study conveyed that 17 percent of third-generation Mexican-Americans speak Spanish, while 5 percent of the fourth generation speaks Spanish."

I know several bronze dudes with names like Gomez and Garcia who speak Spanish worse than I do.  People come up to them and try and use Spanish all the time..

It's an article of faith among some people - that there is no such thing as a Latino with any desire or inclination to learn English.

There you go again with your facts.

It's almost like the United States has tremendous economic incentives for using English as your first language, so children born here voluntarily learn it instead of opting out of 80% of the job market, and 99% of the high-paying job market.

You mean all the guys whose ancestors came from a place that was just 200 miles from where the rest of our ancestor's came from?  Yeah, sooner or later they will just be another generic white group in this country just like the Italians, Irish or Germans.

Well, yes, but in my experience, tend towards crazy a bit more than average.  I don't know... still hot though.  Yes, that's a generalization, perhaps an unfair one, but there you go.

Only some of their ancestors. See, when the Spanish told the rest of Europe how easy it was to fark the natives over here, some of the meaning got lost in translation.

...they didn't JUST mean you could take their land and goods, they meant you could bang them too.

No, it won't. Had you been paying attention to culture and trends and history and stuff you'd be aware that 1.) historically, immigrant groups have always adopted the language of their new home after a couple generations, and 2.) there's lots of evidence that this is happening right now with the children and grandchildren of Spanish-speaking immigrants in the USA.

Geez. I'll never understand why people choose to think like you do, all outraged and miserable all the time.

Nonono, see, white people treat minorities as equal to them, but Blacks, Hispanics, and Asians all have a long history of subjugating whites to unequal protection under the law and allowing double standards of law enforcement against them.

Somewhere out there is a photograph of Ronald Reagan shaking hands with an illegal alien employee at his Rancho Cielo.

3.5 million illegals owe that photographer big time.
