Comments: Texas white Anglos become minority

A couple of problems with that post. 1st, there is no majority in TX. Unless you divide the world into white or non white. So if there are only 2 races in the world (as the left would have you believe)then yes, whites are a minority. What you actually have in TX is a plurality.

Second, the post simultaneously refers to whites as both a minority and a majority. Which is it? When a majority is no longer a majority you need to stop calling all the other people minorities.

Which brings up the point: In 2050 if that stat becomes reality are people going to start feeling sorry for and pandering to white people because they are a "Minority?"

Which brings up a subsequent point..

How do Black folks feel about illegal immigration? Last year Hispanics overtook Blacks as the largest Minority. Is there any sense of resentment that the new guys didn't quite pay their dues? I mean when telling the "Story of America" is it fitting that Hispanics slipped past Blacks just as Blacks were poised to finally overcome the legacy of the slave trade?

I think its kind of sad.

> 50.2% of Texas residents being minority.

Somebody seriously needs to review their high school math. 50.2% is a majority, not a minority. The other 49.8% of Texas residents are the minority. I think what you're trying to say is that White folks are now a minority. Saying that a "majority of people are in the minority" is simple meaningless double-talk.
