This is an interesting Map.

USA Population: 1790 to 2000 and beyond

Pick a year and see what the population is... then click another and see how its changed.

How did that site come up with the estimates 2010-2090? Adding exactly 5 percent every 10 year? Whoa, thats pretty sophisticated.

Yes because if there's another mass amnesty, there's going to be another big shift, not the straight line that graph shows. Mass amnesty that legalizes 20-30 million illegals and then allows them to bring in their extended families will drastically shift this graph.

The numbers are loaded.... When was "Hispanic" introduced as a category separate from Caucasian? Places like New Mexico have always been "Hispanic"...it is not like they took over in one night...

I guess Hispanic is only to be counted separately from Caucasian when it suits the needs of Affirmative Action? Or whenever it's convenient?

Absolutely! The classification of “Hispanic” by La Raza, serves as their bread and butter to justify collecting federal funds. What a farce!

Maybe...but that is the way it is now. So this numbers didn't magically change...people simply started filling in Hispanic when that is what they saw themselves as...Yes, we all know that "Hispanic" is the fastest growing group. When we dump the illegals it will still be the fastest growing group..in population, in higher education, in increased wealth...

When did this happen. I really haven't researched it. I always remember Hispanic being separated from White...maybe someone on the board can remember otherwise. I'm 35 and I don't

Think we'll see Affirmative Action for white people in 2040?
