Texas has become the fourth state to have a non-white majority population, the U.S. Census Bureau said Thursday, a trend driven by a surging number of Hispanics moving to the state.Think it's time for America to embrace its bilingual future? I do.
Texas joins California, New Mexico and Hawaii as states with majority-minority populations - with Hispanics the largest group in every state but Hawaii, where it is Asian-Americans.
Five other states _ Maryland, Mississippi, Georgia, New York and Arizona _ aren't far behind, with about 40 percent minorities.
