California's Hispanic population to outnumber whites by end of 2013
Like a guest who boorishly arrives two hours early for dinner, the inevitable-but-oh-so-delightful Hispanic future has dropped in on California a tad prematurely. And, yes, California officials are surprised, but happy:
California's Hispanic population is slated to become the state's majority ethnicity by the end of this year according to a new report by the governor's office. New ethnicity trends outlined in Gov Jerry Brown's 2013-14 budget proposal revealed the state's expected new majority while reasoning the state’s declining birth rates and increasing migration as causes. It's a swap that comes earlier than experts had expected.Since Governor Moonbeam's working on the California budget, has he factored in this demographic upheaval? Yes, he has:
Gov Brown, responding to the outlined future of his state, has since proposed shifting more school funding to those schools with more students in poverty and/or don't speak English. Currently 40 percent of the state's students are living in poverty and 20 percent are non-native English speakers he said.Wait - I thought only those bad, bad people at VDare and American Renaissance thought Hispanic immigration meant importing poverty. Does this make Jerry Brown an eeeevil white supremacist? Yes - because noticing certain facts is racist.
