(wish I was smart enough to embed this instead of linking it)

Looks like we are at 308 million people. Hispanics have taken over blacks in most cities for first time ever. If you click state-by-state we are still a predominantly white nation however California is dragging those numbers down a bit.
308 million is a lot. How high can the US population get before we start to not be able to adequately feed ourselves and have to rely on importing food?

Oh yeah. I forgot about that:

The 2010 US Census includes changes designed to more clearly distinguish Hispanic ethnicity as not being a race. That includes adding the sentence: "For this census, Hispanic origins are not races."

Kcnative is going to need a new line.

So claims of racism based upon hispanic status are false by definition?

What is the purpose of the "Diversity Index"?To make you feel bad for what you've been taught, lived through, and experienced. In other words if you fall on the high side of the index you're racist.

Yeah, they're not a race, but a fruit salad of pretty much every race.

They are a vastly inferior culture in almost every way imaginable.

What drum is that? That Hispanic isn't a race? If so, sure I'll keep banging that, along with the government of the United States.

I'd say 6-700 million.

Meh, we have so much unfarmed land and potential to raise cattle that we could probably support well over a billion.

Food supply would definitely be an issue, imo. Not to mention water.

No. The term "race" in this context has no meaning at all. From an anthropological standpoint it has no reference. It's a convenient catch-all phrase because it was forced into popular culture by a pseudo-scientific movement to validate bigotry.

Yeah. That's kinda the point. Can't be racist unless you hate a certain race of Hispanics.

I mean that there really isn't something you can refer to as "race". If you use physical features, you run into the problem that breeding has now crossed geographic borders that use to isolate specific sets of genes. If you use culture, you run into the problem that culture is learned behavior and can be imprinted on anyone. It's a meaningless term in this context. "Race" means nothing more than "group". And in this case the groupings are arbitrary.
