You're right. The projection is only 29% Hispanic.

U.S. Hispanic population to triple by 2050 - USATODAY.com

The White House website ( whitehouse.gov ) was bilingual the whole time Bush was in office.

It changed back to English only when Obama came in.

Update: I just looked again. It is bilingual again, apparently.

Disgusting.

I doubt that any Hispanic nation has its official government websites in English.

Does a Spanish version prevent you from being able to read the English version?

That is not the point----------I see no reason to kowtow to a bunch of Spanish (or any other language) speakers. If living here: assimilate or leave.

I'm not sure about that, there are approximately 50 million hispanic-americans that are us citizens, and approximately 25 million undocumented, spanish is an integral part of our society, there are also millions and millions of students in the u.s. that opt for spanish at school, spanish is by far the number one choice in school among U.s. students, Spanish is here to stay and grow.

Hand on to your dying delusions-----------the party is over of the mostly Latino illegal alien losers.

As it is; the pendulum is starting to swing against this multiculturalism nonsense.

It' a proven fact that Multiculturism does not work in this country. That's the main reason the US was considered a melting pot. Likewise to Amnesty.
Do you realize what would happen if either of these take place? Or does that even matter to you.

Do you consider yourself an "American citizen"?
If so:
How would you like to see this country in say, 20 years from now?


Just a frienly gesture, I don't want to label you as a "Race Baiter" or a racist and I don't want sound like a moderator, because I'm not. But in some of your posts your about to cross the line.
