Latinos now largest minority in Chicago

National Institute for Latino Policy - Latinos have surpassed other minorities in Chicago, including African Americans, in population, making it the second largest racial and ethnic group in Chicago after U.S. Whites, according to the most recent Census data.

"Hispanics", the label invented and applied by the U.S. Census-which includes Latinos and Latin American descendants-now make up nearly a third of the city's total population of 2.7 million residents.

The driving force behind the Hispanic growth are births and not immigration, as had traditionally been the case.

The African-American population, which has lost about 250,000 residents since 2000, has also declined considerably.

And of course Earth needs more humans. Oh wait, it has too many already. But the RC church always wants more, even if the last one kills the mother.
