And won. The Lone Star State joins CA and the SW, reverting to Mexican-Mestizo control.

A closely watched estimate from the U.S. Census Bureau released Thursday indicates that Texas may have passed a long-awaited milestone: the point where Hispanic residents make up more of the state’s population than white residents.

The new population figures, derived from the bureau’s American Community Survey, showed Hispanic Texans made up 40.2% of the state’s population in 2021 while non-Hispanic white Texans made up 39.4%. The estimates — based on comprehensive data collected over the 2021 calendar year — are not considered official.

It’s not the end of the world – just the American part of it in TX. Most Hispanics and Whites get along moderately well in TX. And, if they don’t in the future, the state is huge and can easily subdivide as needed. The present and the future – get this, Boomers – exist and they are markedly different than the past. The future belongs to those who show up for it.
