Have you heard? Latinos now outnumber whites in California.


Scary, right?  There are now 14.99 million Latinos in California, edging out 14.92 million whites. Although it was announced this year, the Census Bureau says the scales tipped towards Latinos in July of 2014.

They’re all probably celebrating their takeover…

Pretty soon, they’re going to start naming streets after Latinos.

Wait –– Romualdo Pacheco was elected governor of California in 1875?

Looks like these Latinos have been in California for a very long time.
