Whites, Latinos Hit Population Parity in Calif.

Juliet Williams, San Francisco Chronicle, July 1, 2013

State demographers estimate that whites and Latinos are now an equal share of California’s population, with Latinos poised to become a plurality by early next year.

Latino leaders planned a modest rally Monday at the state Capitol to mark the milestone, which researchers at the state Department of Finance had previously projected would be achieved mid-year.


Whites and Latinos each comprise about 39 percent of California’s population after a long-running demographic shift that already has altered state politics, the economy and culture.

Monday’s rally was intended to mark the occasion and remind state lawmakers of Latinos’ increasing clout, said Orlando Fuentas, president of the Latino Democratic Club of Sacramento.


Gov. Jerry Brown signed legislation Monday that dramatically changes the way California funds its public schools, including directing more money toward districts with a high proportion of students who are not proficient in English. At a news conference after the signing, Brown was asked to comment about the state’s shifting demographics.

“That’s part of the dynamism of California,” he said. “It’s a great opportunity, and this bill, by directing more money toward low-income families, families where English is not spoken, will respond to the various challenges.”

In the new year, California is expected to become the second state, behind New Mexico, in which Latinos are the largest racial or ethnic group.


In 2060, Hispanics will make up 48 percent of the population compared with 30 percent for whites, according to state projections. {snip}

    “It’s a great opportunity” says Governor Moonbeam.

    A great opportunity for what Moonbeam? The complete destruction of (the once golden state of) California, or the complete destruction of White people – or both?

    • The__Bobster

      Gov. Moonbeam burned out his brain a long time ago.

        When I watch old movies or shows set or filmed in California, I can’t believe it is the same state where Mestizos currently outnumber Whites. Back then, it seemed like the perfect place to live, sun, surf, nice cars, pretty people…

    • Watching old TV shows, Emergency!, Adam-12, Dragnet …. it’s hard to believe that is what California used to be like. I know it’s TV and only the best was portrayed but it was so perfect.

      • newscomments70

        I notice that as well. And there was always one well-behaved minority in the group. Even then there were problems…LA actually had a black mayor since 1974. 1974 was the year LA, California’s biggest city, ceased to be American.

      They held a rally to celebrate the milestone,
      A rally! To celebrate, finally, I guess, the ascendancy , and next week the dominance, obviously, of their RACE.
      That’s it? La Raza?
      It’s enough, really, to give even this dedicated Am-Renner pause.
      California could not be more dead to me.
      What hath God wrought?

    • JackKrak

      Any politician that refers to anything as an “opportunity” is surely talking about something that normal people recognize as hopelessly destroyed.

      • Greg_Deane

        Not only politicians. Anyone in power who uses the word ‘opportunity’ is issuing a warning that the blessings or sensible practices of the past are about to be stripped away, and there’s nothing you can do about it.

    • Steven Bannister

      What a disappointment Jerry Brown has been. Back in the Nineties he was running for president against Bill Clinton and he showed real promise. He was a maverick and a truth teller – watch the old debates and you’ll see what I mean. I supported him and sent him money for his campaign.

      Now I can’t stand him – or any politician that sells out his own people.

  • So when does BAJA California reach parity?

    • Bossman

      What do you mean by that? Baja California is in Mexico. Fantastic climate and potentially rich.

  • Luca

    The Reconquista is now in full bloom. As most of the Whites leave, so goes the tax base and the infrastructure management. The once “Golden State” is now a bit more beige and circling the bowl.

    Until I can leave, I must watch it further transform into a third-world cesspool while Liberal lunatics like Moonbeam Brown tell us how dynamic and vibrant diversity is.

    • WR_the_realist

      Eventually the only whites left in California will be be the rich billionaires who favored the invasion in the first place. They will deserve the 60% state income tax rate they will wind up having to pay.

      • Greg_Deane

        Where will the unbreasted Angelina Jolie taker her rainbow ‘family’ when she feels overburdened by the crippling taxes. I pity Brad-I think at heart he has some sense.

  • dmxinc

    These politicians had no right to give away the country our forefathers fought and died to create, build and defend.

    A new generation will be tasked with doing it all over again, under more difficult circumstances. If they fail, American is gone.

    Is there a betting line anywhere on when California is officially surrendered to Mexico?

    • mobilebay

      Too late, it’s already happened.

      • newscomments70

        I take the train into LA on occasion. As soon as I leave the small enclave of whites and Asians, I am immersed in the ugliness of Mexico. If you don’t know the area, it’s really bad. When I first moved here, I was somewhat liberal and I even liked Mexico. I didn’t realize their level of racism and their ultimate goal of “reconquista”. It’s not a theory, it’s real. You can see it with your own eyes. Blacks and Mexicans told me in their own words what is going on. They warned me not to be a “naive liberal”.

  • The__Bobster

    Gov. Jerry Brown signed legislation Monday that dramatically changes the way California funds its public schools, including directing more money toward districts with a high proportion of students who are not proficient in English.

    Great. Moonbeam just accelerated White flight from his state.

  • For those of us who do NOT live in that dump, it is imperative to make fleeing white Californians UNwelcome in your state.
    Once the white liberal cancer arrives in your state, they will be appalled that there is not enough diversity in your town.

    The displaced white California liberal will:
    Start off as the only democrat in your town.
    Inform their fellow liberal scum about how great your town is, and they should join them.
    They will reach out to minorities in your state, and support new Section 8 housing.
    They will complain to your school board and demand the Christmas decorations be removed.
    They will lobby for gay marriage in your state.

    YOU will fight it by fleeing, but “they” will follow you, won’t they?
    I say that all fleeing white Californians should settle in Detroit, Harlem, or New England. Stay away from the red states.

    • Jefferson

      White liberals from states like California and New York have transformed once red states like Florida and Colorado into blue states by migrating there.

      The majority of White liberals in Florida have ZERO family roots in the South. They are not true Southerners by any means. They are transplants from Non Southern states.

      • Bossman

        White liberals who choose Florida are professionals who can afford to live there. As for the retired crowd, they could be from all parts of the USA.

  • Spartacus

    I think it’s time for a strategic retreat…

  • mobilebay

    Churchill wrote a book about the German rearmament after WW 1. It’s title was(is) “While England Slept.” Perhaps we need someone to pen another called: While Americans Slept, Their Leaders Sold Them Out to Every Third World Country on the Planet.” Lengthy title, but it tells the story.

  • OhWow

    Latino leaders planned a modest rally Monday at the state Capitol to mark the milestone

    This was the line that had me finally realize how ridiculous this all is. Can you dare imagine white people in Africa becoming a majority displacing blacks then celebrating with a rally? Can you imagine the reaction? This is nothing more than Hispanics rubbing everything in our faces laughing at us. They knew they’d get their way with their illegal immigrant friends getting citizenship, now they know they will dominate many areas of America with their high birth rate. They know they are displacing whites and they are proud of it. The Civil War part II will be a racial one. You can book it.

    • bubo

      These people are as base as you can get. It is the limits of their intellect to celebrate the fact that “there’s more of us than you.”

  • jeffaral

    More lies! Arabs,Iranians, Jews are now considered White. At most 25% of Californians are White.

    • dukem1

      sho’ nuff.

    • Bossman

      Lots of rich Iranians and Arabs have settled in Southern California.

      • jeffaral

        Lots of poor, criminal bent Iranians and Arabs have settled in Southern Mexifornia and elsewhre.

  • OhWow

    I guess this means the end of the “California Girls” stereotype. The beautiful beach blonde blue eyed knockout. Pretty soon that term will bring Mexican women to mind.

    • Bossman

      Was Southern California ever like the TV series “Baywatch”? Was that just a Hollywood fantasy?

    • GeneticsareDestiny

      I already immediately imagine Mexicans whenever anyone mentions California. It’s a damn shame.

    • Jefferson

      If you go to high income zip codes in California, you will still see a lot of blonde women.

      High income zip codes in California on average tend to be less vibrantly diverse than the state as a whole.

      • Bossman

        Yes, high income men still marry blondes and maybe they always will.

        • Jefferson

          That is because blonde women are seen as trophy wives, which is why a high percentage of powerful wealthy men have blonde wives.

        • WR_the_realist

          Until all those blondes marrying rich men of any race results in there being no more blondes. Heidi Klum — the future of blonde women.

  • Erasmus

    “That’s part of the dynamism of California,” he [Brown] said. “It’s a great opportunity, and this bill, by directing more money toward low-income families, families where English is not spoken, will respond to the various challenges.”

    Translation: “We are in some deep s**t.”

  • ViktorNN

    I saw this story posted on Facebook earlier today by acquaintance of mine who is much like me: white, middle aged male, father, lifelong SoCal native.

    He shared the article and “liked”it.

    I had to shake my head. What the eff is wrong with this guy? Why on earth would a white California native “like” this news? What could be possibly good about this for him, and especially for his white children? What is it about upper middle class “progressive liberal” whites that they not only suffer such news in resigned silence, they must actually go out of their way to celebrate their impending minority status? Celebrate it! They’re happy about it.

    It boggles my mind. How can we save ourselves when so many of us are apparently happy and excited about and even working towards our slow-motion suicide, our steady march towards non-existence as a people?

    • Tinfoil A22hat

      Wow I feel bad for his kids. I hope they don’t grow up hating themselves for being white. Sounds like dear old Dad is a lost cause.

    • Ngati Pakeha

      He “likes” it because he is probably unencumbered, or thinks he is, by the reality of having these people in his immediate midst. I’m not presuming to know your friend but I am sure you have noticed most of these libtards live in the most homogenous of suburbs.

      • ViktorNN

        I know exactly the sort of liberal you’re talking about – I have a few friends from the Pacific NW who fit your description perfectly. They at least have the excuse of ignorance.

        This guy I’m talking about, however, lives in one of SoCal’s ground zeroes for white dispossession. He’s from the San Gabriel Valley – he’s seen old white Pasadena invaded by Asians. It’s so sad to see beautiful craftsman houses with Asian families living in them. These neighborhoods were built by whites – whites deserve to live in them. And then of course, this guy must have seen Los Angeles go from a city that’s always had a significant Hispanic minority to becoming a northern suburb of Tijuana.

        And still he hits the “like” button on FB. “Likes” being edged out and elbowed in on. “Likes” his children becoming minorities in their own country. The lies this fool must be telling himself…

        • Ted

          Unfortunately, this attitude seems all too common these days. I had a former high school classmate with a mulatto child post on fb her disappointment with all of the backlash directed towards the Cheerios commercial. To top it off, other classmates commented on how right she was. This is in a lilly white midwestern town in a red state. Truly sickening.
          I live in the ‘Chan’ Gabriel valley and work in Pasadena so I’m familiar with the Asian hordes droning around. Makes my stomach churn and I didn’t even grow up here.

          • For people who want to leave California for Texas, Texas is going thru this as well. Houston is known to even have an Asian section and of course it has lots of Mexicans and Blacks. Blacks are even much worst in Texas since it gain 87,000 versus only 78,000 for whites. You can live in nice white suburbs like the Woods if you want to moved but its getting a lot of the multicultural stuff as well in Houston, Dallas and both San Antonio or El Paso I would not live in since the Mexicans are pretty heavily in both towns.

        • I have mixed feelings about the Asians, they kind of slowed Hispanic growth in an area and usually have more schooling. On the other hand, whites leave, we need an immigration policy that brings in wealthy Russians or low skilled Polish.

    • Nathanwartooth

      He is told constantly by the media to love it.

      To not love it would make you a bigot and a hater.

      He just wants to be part of the “in group” and not have the witch hunters come after him.

      Remember, admit to saying the “n” word once 30 years ago and there goes your career.

    • JDInSanDiego

      News reporters have a big smile on their faces as they report stuff like this, as if we should be proud that we finally “made it”, whatever “it” is. They look like little kids who just used the potty for the first time.

  • John Smith

    A great opportunity for what? More welfare? More gangs? More degradation of a public education system that has fallen from first in the nation to almost last place and is rife with a homosexual agenda and race symbolism instead of academic studies? Etc…

    They don’t call him “moonbeam” for nothing.

  • Bon, From the Land of Babble

    A party at the state capital to celebrate the dominance of Latinos over Whites.

    So things should be much better now, right, with evil Whites out of the way — California will again become a paradise on earth– a workers’ paradise!!

    And, according to the Gang of 8 Thugs, all those Hispanics will now be voting Republican in gratitude, right?

    Who could have predicted that?

    Of course, Hispanics will still claim aggrieved minority status for benefits and claim victimization and oppression by Whites.

    So little do they know that when we Whites are gone, the EBT cards will stop working…

    After that, they can complain to California’s new class of Hispanic oppressors — the Chinese. Yeah, good luck with that!!


    • Jefferson

      I am lucky that I live in one of the few pockets of California where Hispanic people are still a Minority.

      The reason why Hispanics are a Minority where I live, is because the median household income in my zip code is over $70,000 a year.

      Not many Hispanic households make over $70,000 a year. My zip code is mostly Asian and White. Hispanics make up only 4 percent of my zip code.

      • Bon, From the Land of Babble

        Good luck with that.

        I am from a wealthy area in Ventura county – a place where Hispanics can ill afford to live — yet the government is forcing them in through Section 8 housing via a particularly disagreeable group that goes by the name “Many Mansions.” They do the heavy lifting and scout out wealthy White areas for third world invasion. Section 8 is the exact way the San Fernando Valley and Palmdale/Lancaster were ruined.

        Nowhere is safe any longer for Whites in California.


        • Well, San Juan had the old Mexican barrio areas but you problem sounds similar to what Mission Viejo is having to do. I recommend that you moved to the new Rancho Mission Viejo but probably your job is way to far. Also, Placer County in Northern California is still mainly white and is wealthy and not that much liberal. Its out of Sacramento.

  • AllSeeingEyeSpy

    “That’s part of the dynamism of California,” he said. “It’s a great opportunity, and this bill, by directing more money toward low-income families, families where English is not spoken, will respond to the various challenges.”

    It’s as if Gov Jerry Brown is a regular AmRener and intended his statement to be a joke.

    • JDInSanDiego

      We should be directing those “low income families where English is not spoken” back to the other side of the border.

  • WR_the_realist

    Whites are not allowed to bemoan their ever dwindling numbers and influence but Latinos are allowed to celebrate their ever increasing numbers and influence. We must all cheer on La Reconquista or be declared non-persons.

    • Bossman

      As far as I can deduce, if Whites are dwindling, they are doing it to themselves and Latinos are not responsible for that.

      • kjh64

        You are absolutely correct. Whites are stupid.

  • Bossman

    So what happened to all those white people on the beaches? Why didn’t they have any children? Were they just tourists? They lost their jobs and couldn’t afford those house prices?

    • Jefferson

      And you want the entire United States to racially look like downtown Los Angeles, don’t you ?

      • Bossman

        No, I don’t want that at all. Too many Koreans there, for one thing. But I could tolerate a healthy mix of Whites and Hispanics.

        • Jefferson

          You can tolerate low I.Q Mexicans who commit the majority of the the violent crimes in Los Angeles, but you can not tolerate high I.Q Koreans who commit a minority of the violent crimes in Los Angeles ?

          • Bossman

            Southern California has always been home to a large Mexican population. I don’t live there so I don’t know about crime statistics. In Miami which is overwhelmingly Hispanic, Blacks still manage to commit the most violent crimes.

          • Jefferson

            Blacks used to commit most of the violent crimes in Los Angeles, but now Mexicans have surpassed Blacks in Los Angeles in terms of who commits most of the violent crimes.

            All Mexican neighborhoods in Los Angeles now have a healthy dose of gang activity.

        • WR_the_realist

          “Some” Mexicans in L.A.? Sure, it would make sense for 5% of L.A.’s population to be Mexican. But they’ve taken over the place.

  • Big Blue 11

    Re- directing money from you know who. Good bye Cali

  • Jefferson

    Anything south of the Bay Area is majority Hispanic.

  • Greg Thomas

    “Latino leaders planned a modest rally Monday at the state Capitol to mark the milestone, which researchers at the state Department of Finance had previously projected would be achieved mid-year.”

    Whites being replaced by illegal invading latrinos is celebrated as a “milestone.”
    Unbelievable. And they say reconquista is just a fragment of our imagination.
    Wake up White people.

  • Greg_Deane

    Yes, look at Brazil, or any number of countries in South America. Argentina and Chile almost made it because of their European populations. But they were undermined by mestizos and Indians who white-anted the economies.

  • me

    A country, state, county, city, or town is only as good as the people residing in them. The only ‘dynamism’ that’s going to happen is the further ghettoization and barrio makeover that California is going to receive. Way to go, Brown, you Baby Boomer, drug-addled, Marxist scum….

  • Bon, From the Land of Babble

    I can’t think of a more ruthless, cold-blooded enemy than the Chinese — except perhaps the Soviets. The Chinese aren’t known for human rights, after all, and have a habit of dispatching dissenters via a quick bullet in the back of the head with the bill for the bullet sent to the surviving family members.

    The Chinese have no empathy for any but their own — and they have been known to have no empathy for their own as well.


  • You have to go to places like Coto De Caza for whites in California. In fact South Orange County is one of the few places not as Mexican but there are a couple of bad towns for Mexicans in South OC, San Juan Capistrano and Lake Forest about 35 percent and L F at 23 percent. If you live in Calif So the new Rancho Mission Viejo means you could get away from Mexicans. Ladera Ranch the whites had more kids than even Mexican Santa Ana.

  • FalkoBaumgartner

    The process repeats itself all over the Western world. Big capital wants cheap labour for which they pressure the government. Flocks of foreign workers arrive, at first on a seemingly temporary basis, so nobody is really alarmed, but before you can say stop they have settled down have their families joining them, turning the demographics around. The native Whites are increasingly on the backfoot and things go steadily southward. The Californian script played out everywhere, Holland, France, Germany, GB, recently even in Spain and Italy.

  • WR_the_realist

    The “California girl” of Beach Boys fame went out with the 60s. By the 90s the race replacement was pretty much complete in L.A.

  • Rex

    State demographers estimate that whites and Latinos are now an equal
    share of California’s population, with Latinos poised to become a
    plurality by early next year.

    The reality is that those who identify themselves as “Latinos” don’t even know what Latinos is. If they knew it they would backtrack. They’re a bunch of Ibero-Indians with no Latin identity.
