In 1970 the Census introduced ethnicity as a distinct category from race, although only allowing a choice of Hispanic or Non-Hispanic.

This was intended to identify and/or conjure up a Hispanic bloc for political mobilization and affirmative action purposes while still allowing Hispanics to claim to be blue-blooded whites. As Lee Trevino explained after winning the 1968 US Open: Now that I’m rich I’m going to stop being a Mexican and start being a Spaniard.

But that has increasingly proven out of sync with the evolution of sophisticated thought among elites (who have now arrived at the intellectually transcendent insight: “White men bad”). So the 2020 Census was reworked to reduce the number of George Zimmerman-like White Hispanics, and it worked: The number of individuals who identified as nothing but white and Hispanic dropped 52.9% nationally from 2010 to 2020.

  1. Sammy Sosa put a photo of the new tanning bed he just bought.

  2. Where does everyone want to get off of? The sinking ship.

    Where does everyone want to climb on? The bandwagon.

    White folks have given up and proactively abdicated their place in the country that their own people built. I’ve watched it and hated it for fifty years. I’ve tried to do what I can to resist.

    When you invite a bunch of scumbags to come over and invade you, and then go lie down in the doorway, don’t be surprised when they wipe their feet on you as they come in and make themselves at home.

    Smoke another doobie; get another Chinese tat–maybe the character for “Courage”, and look! Another feetsbaw game! Put on that \$100 “official” NFL jersey with your negro idol’s name on it and sit down and watch.

  3. How could Trevino have been rich on a winner’s share of \$30K? Was Jim Lefebvre rich, too?

  4. Then when they’re arrested and thrown into prison they magically become white again, providing the stats that Ron Unz trusts and uses.

  5. Flight from White

    In 2010 over half the Hispanics identified as White. Today just 19% of Hispanics identify as White

    The number of Whites in America has collapsed from 223 million down to 204 million mostly due to Hispanics no longer claiming to be White. But 13 million Hispanics still claim to be White.

    The number of non-Hispanic Whites fell by 5 million over the past decade. Most of this decline is due to White Deaths exceeding White Births. Over the last decade 20 million whites were born and 24 million Whites died. The demographic death spiral has begun , over the next decade the white population will decline to 182 million Whites.

  6. This is SHOCKING, since being White is such A Huge Advantage due to what President Biden calls our Biggest Threat which is the Massive Problem the USA has of White Supremacy.

    That People who have the option of to be considered White or anything else, one would think People would do what is in their best Interest, What gives them the biggest Advantage in Life which is being considered White. The Fact that so many choose NOT to do what gives them the biggest advantage, but What Puts them at a Huge Disadvantage, Shows these people have Extraordinary Character and the highest Morals, Ethics and Principles, that so many have these traits means the Future of The USA is in Great Hands, I give then them props, Salute to these people.

  7. In 1970

    Who was President?

    To be fair, the 91st Congress was heavily Democrat. Food for thought. In a country that was 83% white, an overwhelmingly Democrat Congress, which managed to feed the US into the wood chipper with no immigrant or POC help. No Boomers either, guys. In 1970 the oldest Boomer was 24.

  8. I wonder how much of that was due to changes in the composition of Hispanic immigration. Seems to be more are more immigrants from Central America and in my experience they tend to be more indigenous than Puerto Ricans, Dominicans, even Mexicans.

  9. Do the census results compilers look at the identification of individuals over multiple decades? I wonder if some of the larger than expected drop in the number of whites came from people who identify with the family legend of the “Indian princess” or Talcum X and his certainty that his (white) mother cuckolded the (white) man whose name she put on the birth certificate.

    How many people who were white last time they took the survey saw the writing on the wall of the re-education camp, or could smell the reparations check, or wanted to position their kids for easier college admissions…

    I mean, really if there are 57 genders, and one can change willy billy (Millie vanilli?) and the PTB insist that race is less real than gender, why not switch to where the goodies are?

    What about the half black with a full black SO? Maybe she decides she’s all black now. Call that an Obama. I mean, the President forgot his mom and the grandparents who raised him were all white!

    With 23&Me test results in hand, one would have to be crazy to claim unleavened whiteness after FloydFest?

  10. Flight from White

    We know that Prince was more than a little bit white because his corvette was both little and red.

  11. The American Indian and Alaska Native population grew by 100% over the last decade.

    Millions of Americans became Indian since the last census from 5.2 million Indians in 2010 to almost 10 million Indians today. Millions of Whites joined Senator Warren and declared themselves part Indian.

    Surprisingly few Hispanics claim to be Amerindian

    Of the 9.7 million who identified as American Indian on the census less than 500,000 were Hispanic

    The majority of Hispanics claim “some other race” when they fill out the census. Many Mexicans claim to be La Raza , the cosmic race.

    In 2010 52% identified as White
    In 2020 19% identified as White

    This is a drop of 63% in the percentage of Hispanics who identified as White.

    The number of Hispanic who identified as some other race increased from 26 million to 51 million, a growth rate of 99%

    If you stigmatize something you get less of it.
    Hence more white wimmenz shaking up with blacks and more self-loathing whites or near whites (like Lizzie Warren) suddenly realizing “I think I’ve got an Indian ancestor somewhere!” or that Hispanic automatically = poor oppressed person of color.
    On that note I vividly remember blonde TX congresswoman Sylvia Garcia claiming to be non-white on CNN awhile back (unfortunately I can’t upload a picture of her).

  17. In the meantime, has anyone noticed the invasion continues unabated? Our government supports & encourages our invasion, which makes our leaders treasonous. Article IV, Section 4 of Constitution: “The United States shall guarantee to every State in this Union a Republican Form of Government, and shall protect each of them against Invasion;” We need to discuss how to reclaim our homeland, or else our future will resemble South Africa.

  18. As a Hispanic who ticked the “white” box, I think this is more of an honest reflection on how many whites are among the Hispanic population in the US. This is taking into account that there is no “one drop” rule in Latin America. Many of those who checked the white only box – including me – will have some marginal non-Euro ancestry. And it could be that many of us who are 10% or so non-Euro have internalized the Anglo American idea that non white ancestry completely supplants the greater European portion.

    This has been helped by 23andMe, ancestry and other companies. When a person who thought they were a white Hispanic sends off their kit, only to find that they are 7% native, 3% African and a higher than average Levantine/North African score than a peninsular (not my results, but this is a common result), then what are the chances of them continuing to identify as white?

    Of course, this highlights what a farce “white privilege” is. If whites were truly privileged, then no one would care one wit about their scores. More slightly mixed criollos would be checking the white only box, not just stubborn holdovers like me. “I don’t want to be a member of the privileged class,” said no one ever in the history of mankind.

    Agreed, but with qualification. As I see it, race is basically looks plus some culture. If you look white & have nothing but Western culture, you're white. I have twice given this video of Aussie Peruvian chick who is, as I recall, 67% (or close) genetically AmerInd. But she looks completely white to me, and it would be puzzling to check anything but white.

    She could have, considering 23andme, Ancestry etc., but let's be frank. American Indians look differently. And I doubt she speaks Quechua.

  19. One can interpret this significant change as a deliberate attempt to reduce the White population. It can also be interpreted as a needed correction to more accurately reflect how Hispanics identify. There is evidence to support either interpretation.

    The 2020 Census was conducted by Donald Trump’s Census Bureau. His administration made the call to change the Hispanic question and he had no reason to strive to reduce his potential base. Further, the very high ID of Hispanics as “white” always struck me as unrealistic. There were counties in Texas which had very few non-Hispanic whites, but which went up to 98% White when White Hispanics were included. California was something like 75% White when Hispanics were included. It seems unlikely that all of those White Hispanics really were White, which supports the notion that the Census’s wording change was corrective.

    OTOH, we know that progressive foundations worked behind the scenes to influence the way that minorities were counted. No details, but it is likely that they were involved in altering the Hispanic question. https://cep.org/philanthropys-success-with-census-needs-to-continue/

    Further, the result is something of an absurdity. The Census maintains its prior position that Hispanic is an ethnicity, and not a race. Yet it allows massive numbers of Hispanics to identify as “Some Other Race.” At the same time, it does not require respondents to identify that “other race.” Which is because the respondents would list “Hispanic” and the Census would then be in the position of recording responses which are inaccurate under its own definition of race. So instead, we have an unidentified mystery race called “Some Other Race” which is the 2d largest race in the United States, but it can’t be named.

    The bottom line is that White Hispanics (e.g., Cameron Diaz, Ted Cruz, Martin and Charlie Sheen) really do exist. Their numbers may have been inflated in the past, but bona fide, actual White Hispanics do exist and they are still White even if they now have been shuttled from “White Hispanic” to the new “White In Combination” category. When you add all Whites and White In Combination, you get 71% of the US population, which is similar to the Census’s prior figure for all Whites (non-Hispanic + Hispanic).

    “White In Combination” allows the anti-White elites to pretend that these former White Hispanics are biracial people, but they are not. Indeed, the Census still maintains a “Two or More Races” category, which bizarrely, is distinct from “In Combination.”

    Sheen is not Hispanic. His father is Irish-Spanish mix. Spanish from Spain.

    And Charlie Sheen is deranged beyond reparation.

  20. In all fairness, don’t this have a significant basis in reality, much more than the attempt to detach “MENA” from whiteness? The results have been all over the map depending on the ideology of the researcher and the location of research, but on the whole genetic studies have shown that the Mexican population (as opposed to the very top of political/economic elite, which does seem to be very heavily made up of Europeans/Lebanese Christians) has quite a lot of Amerindian (i.e. non-white) descent.

    My best friend in high school was from a Northern Triangle country and very much an upper-class pale-skinned type (father had a good job with a U.S. chemical company, family was Protestant, the friend and his brother both ended up getting PhDs from elite institutions). But, at the same time he had an unmistakably Amerindian/”Asian” facial shape that you would never see among someone of European/West Asian descent.

    Even a Jorge Ramos type (ostensibly Iberian/Germanic) will voluntarily move to the “other race” category when the most powerful man on the planet continuously scapegoat your group.

  31. Latinx activists are ecstatic….

    The press are focused on the “browning” of America: the uptick of Latinos from 16.3% to 18.7% of population. But what’s fascinating is the “browning” of Brown America: the share of Latinos choosing white as race falling from 53% to 20.3%.

    The much-anticipated results of the 2020 Census for redistricting purposes are just in. The numbers illustrate the major changes that have been afoot in the U.S. population for some time. The nation’s population is becoming increasingly diverse due to major growth in the Latino, Asian, and multiracial populations and an aging white population that declined for the first time ever.

    Second, one of the most dramatic alterations in the Latino population is its increasing representation in an expanding swath of states around the country. The number of states where Latinos comprised more than 10% of the population climbed from 17 in 2010 to 27 in 2020 with Massachusetts, Nebraska, Oklahoma, Maryland, the District of Columbia, North Carolina, Delaware, Virginia, Georgia, and Wyoming joining the ranks in 2020 (Figure 3). This fanning out of the Latino population contrasts greatly to an earlier time more than a half-century ago when Latinos were clustered in the Southwest, Illinois, Florida, and New York.

    Third, Latinos were the largest or second largest racial/ethnic group in 24 states in 2020 (Figure 4). California has now joined New Mexico to represent the two states where Latinos are the largest racial/ethnic group. Of the 22 states where Latinos make up the second largest group, Texas stands out with whites holding a slim percentage share advantage of 39.7% versus 39.3% for Latinos. It is projected that Latinos will outnumber whites in the state in 2022.

    There is still a lot of greater details that will emerge over the coming months on the changing U.S. population. The true reality is that the nation is becoming increasingly diverse with Latinos in the forefront of this shift alongside Asians, Blacks, and persons identifying with multiple racial categories.

    But one clear message emerges from the results of the 2020 Census, as the count will be used for redistricting purposes. Trucha, raza, we know the gerrymandering and underhand tactics that Republicans will use to dilute our community’s numbers. Remember that in our nation, whites sustained a decline of nearly 9% between 2010 and 2020 with Latinos increasing by 23%, a pattern replicated in many parts of the country.

    On Twitter many Hispanics have said the reason they stopped self identifying as White in the U.S census is because they have experienced racism at the hands of White people like being told to their faces to stop speaking Spanish in public and to go back to their country. So why should they continue to check the White box when they are clearly not seen as White but seen as a racial Other in the eyes of White people!

  33. Here’s what you do:

    On the census, identify as White, decreasing nonwhite numbers for affirmative action and the like.

    Anywhere else, take any nonwhite category you can, filling up AA slots and leaving room to hire a white person.

The number of states where Latinos comprised more than 10% of the population climbed from 17 in 2010 to 27 in 2020 with Massachusetts, Nebraska, Oklahoma, Maryland, the District of Columbia, North Carolina, Delaware, Virginia, Georgia, and Wyoming joining the ranks in 2020 (Figure 3). This fanning out of the Latino population contrasts greatly to an earlier time more than a half-century ago when Latinos were clustered in the Southwest, Illinois, Florida, and New York.
     

    Third, Latinos were the largest or second largest racial/ethnic group in 24 states in 2020 (Figure 4). California has now joined New Mexico to represent the two states where Latinos are the largest racial/ethnic group. Of the 22 states where Latinos make up the second largest group, Texas stands out with whites holding a slim percentage share advantage of 39.7% versus 39.3% for Latinos. It is projected that Latinos will outnumber whites in the state in 2022.

     


    There is still a lot of greater details that will emerge over the coming months on the changing U.S. population. The true reality is that the nation is becoming increasingly diverse with Latinos in the forefront of this shift alongside Asians, Blacks, and persons identifying with multiple racial categories.
     

    But one clear message emerges from the results of the 2020 Census, as the count will be used for redistricting purposes. Trucha, raza, we know the gerrymandering and underhand tactics that Republicans will use to dilute our community’s numbers. Remember that in our nation, whites sustained a decline of nearly 9% between 2010 and 2020 with Latinos increasing by 23%, a pattern replicated in many parts of the country.

    On Twitter many Hispanics have said the reason they stopped self identifying as White in the U.S census is because they have experienced racism at the hands of White people like being told to their faces to stop speaking Spanish in public and to go back to their country. So why should they continue to check the White box when they are clearly not seen as White but seen as a racial Other in the eyes of White people!
