The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - WORLD -

Los An­ge­les — The long-ex­pected mo­ment when Lati­nos sur­pass whites as Cal­i­for­nia’s largest racial or eth­nic group has come and gone. Ac­cord­ing to U.S. Cen­sus Bureau fig­ures re­leased in late June, His­panic Cal­i­for­ni­ans be­gan to nar­rowly out­num­ber white Cal­i­for­ni­ans some­time in the first half of 2014. As of July 1, 2014, the state had about 15 mil­lion Lati­nos to about 14.9 mil­lion nonHis­panic whites. Cal­i­for­nia joins New Mexico as the sec­ond state with a Latino plu­ral­ity. Hawaii, with its large Asian pop­u­la­tion, is the third state where whites aren’t the largest eth­nic group.
