In 2060, one out of three Americans will be latino.

    Your opinion?
    And, given the mushrooming of democracies in southern America, hope is not a fantasy anymore.
    What do you think?

          Depende de su punto de vista, para mí es igual, me encanta la temprament latino y estilo de vida, pero creo que algunos Américas no latino se lamentarán las viejas costumbres.

          BTW as a 62 year old white Anglo, my concerns about what happens on my 109th birthday are limited!

          But having lived in Spain for 25 years, hey, worse things could happen, you could have sharia law rather than fiestas and sangria! wink

            With this question I am obviously poking fun at all those people with their Texan hats that fear that our land, what did I say, the Native Indian land, will be dominated by colored people versus white!

      Did you expect anything less from a world leadership intent on globalisation and the removal of national borders.
      In 2060 i will be dead, the world will move on and the changes will be for our offspring to deal with.

      "Latino" includes not only Spanish and Portuguese, but Italian and French as well. So yes, we're already beyond the 1/3 mark and have been for a long time.

        Let's not play with words and be realistic. By "latinos", I was referring to the actual data. When our mainstream media refers to latinos it is obvious that it implies only and exclusively the Mexicans crossing our southern borders. The immigation doesn't target the French, the Portuguese or the Spaniards but the Mexicans therefore let's be relevant in our discussion. The Mexicans is so far our last immigration wave.

          You talking about white Mexican Creoles, or dark skin, or Guatemalans walking across Mexico to get to the US, or Americans on welfare pretending to be illegals, getting paid cash and collecting food stamps too, or just...
          Yeah. Just make up stuff. Or look up Latino in a dictionary.

            I thought the ones that were lazy and collecting all the advantages that our society provides were ONLY black! In fact, in the reality, most of the people enjoying those rights are the white folks... far from your reductive mind.
            Didn't Guatemala nourish a special agreement with the US in matter of immigration. A friend of mine from Guatemala didn't have to cross the Texan border to come here. She came by plane and they gave her the papers, so please check your facts!

    If I'm still alive in 2060 I'll be 90 years old... so I probably wouldn't give a hoot one way or the other.

    Lets enjoy the blue sky and the earth and share it with those who want to be citizens.
    And let's allow them to become citizens without too much paperwork and needless stipulations.
     
    Planning to Learn English?
    Planning to become a productive citizen who pledges to respect The laws of the Land? If so...
    Come on in!

      Totally agree, can you start that policy for British would be immigrants also?

      We already qualify for speaking English and are experienced in obeying the laws of the land?

      I am English, but qualify for holding a Spanish passport having lived there for 25 years, the irony is that as a Brit, there are no quotas for my immigration unless I bring cash and jobs or specific qualifications, whereas if I were Spanish, there is a quota.... go figure!

      I am sure that if the regulations were opened to European immigrants you would get stacks of Brits, Germans and Scandinavians rushing to your shores (again)!

    Folks should be far more concerned with having to learn a few oriental languages,  I haven't seen Mexico on top of any financial or economical list as being powerful.

    How many of the items we own were made in China, Taiwan, Korea, etc.?

    How many in Mexico?

    In way the US sudden change of demography is associable to its economy?

    Are we talking about the Americas as a whole?  North, Central, and South America?  Or are you talking about the population of the U.S.?  I'd think that if we were speaking of the Americas as a whole, then we'd already be close to that number now.

      And then Japan would be thrust into chaos, as their vision of the average American is currently that of blond-haired blue-eyed Aryan love children who wear cowboy hats and laugh for no reason.

      Spot the American!

        You're funny! I'm pretty sure that nowadays Japanese people have a more realistic photograph of the average American. I see more Japanese travelling the world than Americans.
