Hispanics are officially the largest minority in the United States according to the Census Bureau. Whites still make up 70% of the population nationwide, although I doubt the numbers are that high for California. Clouding the numbers is the fact that the Census Bureau considers “Hispanic” an ethnicity and not a race. People of Hispanic ethnicity can be of any race, or even multi-racial.

  1. Just recently (in the past couple years), California became the first state where whites are not a majority, but are “just” 49% or so.
