Majority of Texans Are Minorities

Approximately 50.2 percent of Texans are considered minorities, based on estimates from the 2000 Census. The Anglo population is below 50 percent for the first time. Hispanics make up the largest minority group in Texas, at 32 percent of the state’s population.

Does this make me, as a white male, a minority? Perhaps we should begin referring to minorities as pluralities.

  • Yeah, and I blame our school system for not introducing us to foreign languages at an early age.

  • My son's school had four kindergarten classes out of eight last year that taught only spanish. I actually would have expected the group's percentage to be a little higher. Although there are all the little towns out west and east that don't like them Mexy-cans coming around...
