Looking at population projections for Texas, demographer Steve Murdock concludes: "It's basically over for Anglos."

Two of every three Texas children are now non-Anglo and the trend line will become even more pronounced in the future, said Murdock, former U.S. Census Bureau director and now director of the Hobby Center for the Study of Texas at Rice University.

Today's Texas population can be divided into two groups, he said. One is an old and aging Anglo and the other is young and minority. Between 2000 and 2040, the state's public school enrollment will see a 15 percent decline in Anglo children while Hispanic children will make up a 213 percent increase, he said.

The state's largest county - Harris - will shed Anglos throughout the coming decades. By 2040, Harris County will have about 516, 000 fewer Anglos than lived in the Houston area in 2000, while the number of Hispanics will increase by 2.5 million during the same period, Murdock said. The projection assumes a net migration rate equal to one-half of 1990-2000.

Most of the state's population growth is natural, Murdock told the House Mexican American Legislative Caucus today. About 22 percent of the growth comes from people moving to Texas from other state...About 6 percent of the state's population is not documented, he said.

B y 2040, only 20 percent of the state's public school enrollment will be Anglo, he said. Last year, non-Hispanic white children made up 33.3 percent of the state's 4.8 million public school enrollment.

The problem isn't race. it is the values that are being crapped on by the illegals and their willing butt kissing liberal enablers in the USA.

SO which is it comrade? You appear to be cheer leading the demise of our government and values in the above quote yet the one below it from a preceding post you were lecturing us (needlessly) that the race wasn't important unless values weren't passed down.

Newsflash genius:
Socialism IS NOT AN AMERICAN VALUE!:mad:

As always, the source materials would be more interesting than the opinion of them.

Hispanic is a loosely defined word. The US census makes it clear that it is not a racial category, and most would assume it means of a Spanish speaking subculture or ethnicity. However, demographers can't go through the phone book and tell who speaks Spanish and who doesn't, or in the case of Texas who speaks Spanish well and who doesn't.

If you go by surnames then Mel Martinez would be of Mexican ancestry, but George Prescott Bush wouldn't when in fact Martinez is a white Cuban and Bush's mother is white Mexican born.

This is all part of academia's war on the caucasian race. Their primary agent in this war is to stop using the standard racial classifications (caucasoid, negroid, mongoloid) even going so far as to claim that negro/negroid is "offensive". Instead, they divide the world into "white people" and "brown people" which reduces the caucasian race to a fraction of its actual size and makes it look like the last dinosaur.

I have no doubt that the demographics of Texas are cause for concern. When 6% of a state is illegal aliens, there is a huge problem. That's a 1,500,000 illegal aliens in Texas alone, and they are known to breed like rabbits. Clearly time is of the essence. They must be rounded up and driven back across the border.

We need to speed up the construction of the rabbit fence too.

Race is both real and unreal.

It's reality is not grounded in anything physical, biological, mental or spiritual, but in it's social effects. It's real because the conceptions and categories of race impact the real physical/mechanical actions performed by people. It is a social construction that functions on the social level, but it is not grounded in physical material reality.

This is why many academics reach conclusions that are paradoxical, and to the passing observer appear contradictory
This leads to the

As Nova has pointed out, academics are very far behind the curve in racial identity. Every Hispanic I know considers themselves "white" in terms of race but "Hispanic" in terms of culture. Even that is breaking down as people of Mexican descent bump up against Colombians, Cubans, and others. Spanish may be a culturally shared language but the kitchen table culture of all these groups is as different as the gap between the English and the Germans.

Being American is more important than any allegiance to a culture your parents or grandparents left.

Go down to Miami and ask a Hispanic looking guy if he is Mexican.
If he smiles, he probably is. If he tries to kick your ass he is probably Cuban or Puerto Rican. If he tries to slice your throat, he is probably Colombian or Honduran.:D

I personally consider Hispanics generally white. If an Italian can be considered white, why not a person of Latin descent?

What happened to considering them just plain old American if that is what they are?

Hyphenating by race only serves to keep the flames of racism alive on both sides.

Rather, when the shit goes down due to decades of liberal stirring, said liberals will be seeking refuge from us "teabaggers" who don't shirk our Second Amendment rights.

What, do you think your Obama sticker is going to save you when you are stuck at Florence and Normandy during the "uprising"?

There is a movement alive to convince most Mexicans and other South Americans that they are "indigenous" or "Native American" and that any European ancestry, including cultural ancestry is due to the conquest and rape of their Native American ancestors by the "Europeans".

It's an attempt to claim that the border between the US and Mexico is not legitimate, and that the "Mexica (pronounced mesheeka) " are the rightful owners of this continent. Now why they think they are entitled to this entire continent, when their tribe if any never controlled this continent, I don't know, but it's their line of BS not mine.

It's not really all that different than having some blond person or black person tell you he's an Indian. There is a guy around here who has long blond/grey hair, and wears some desert southwest crap, and calls himself a Cherokee. I've been waiting for the best time to ask him if he's a Cherokee, then why is he dressed up like a plains Indian, but it's really none of my business. We have people around here who think they are witches. I myself am the Grand Duckess of Luxembourg but it's not all it's quacked up to be.
