Hispanic Population Surpasses White Population in Texas

Hispanic Texans are now the largest demographic group in the state, outnumbering white Texans by nearly 129,000 people, according to the latest U.S. census estimates.

We are interested in the way the U. S. Census Bureau continues to avoid using the appropriate, respectful terminology for the Multiracial population. The notes to the most recent statistics include this: The “other” category includes people who are American Indian and Alaska Native, Native Hawaiian and other Pacific Islander, or two or more races, excluding those who also identify as Hispanic.

It’s time for them to start using the correct terminology of “Multiracial.”
