Latino Quantitative & Quantitative Numbers

Volume 5, Issue 3, January 10, 2014

As mentioned before, I grew up during the Civil rights era when Cesar Chavez and Martin Luther King moved the nation into establishing civil rights laws that benefited both citizens and non-citizens alike. Martin Luther King walked side by side with Cesar Chavez in the march for employment standards and the Farm Worker Movement. Martin Luther King even wrote Cesar Chavez a letter informing him that he took the position to be alongside his Latino brother in support of the fight for civil rights in the 1960’s in the employment arena.

Not many people knew that Martin Luther King supported Cesar Chavez during this tumultuous era when Blacks, Latinos, and Asians were in the trolls of suffering peoples in education, employment, and actually being citizens, or just being people of color in the United States.

At the same time, desegregation efforts and development to establish the rights of people of color was in the court system. Desegregation was finalized in 1973 in the Supreme courts that blacks, Latino’s, and Asians had equal access to a quality education.

It was not long ago people of color struggled with just getting access to an education either in elementary, junior high schools, high schools, and in colleges or universities. This was a dream for many of the people of color during the civil rights era. To live the dream as there counter-parts in Anglo-Saxons (

The time or era was so tumultuous that there were many violent protests between the 1960’s and 1970’s.

Not only were the military called in to keep the peace but were also spurred into the civil rights arena before and significantly in all wars in defense of the United States.

People of color were allowed to join the military back in 1947 (mainly blacks) who represented the military with “Buffalo soldiers” ( Latinos were present and significally engaged during all wars that the United States had.

During the era, my counter-parts (Anglo-Saxons) that were of school age children, were not prejudiced by our color here in parts of California, they considered Latino’s as one of them in some parts of the country, like California. But, for those who grew up in border towns like Texas, it was a living hell, and they were mis-treated and many were discriminated against. I do know for a fact that this was occurring because of news and eye witness accounts who happened to be my cousins. My cousins, children who grew up in the era encountered prejudices in the 1960's and who were darker skinned than I. Although, they did not suffer, as much as, the darker skinned Latinos they did have a share in discrimination and prejudice.

The fact that darker skinned Latinos were discriminated against in the era is the same among blacks and is some kind of common factor among the races. The darker the skin on the individual was the norm of likelihood of being discriminated against or abused in some shape or form. I can also be frank that it still happens today, that this occurs within the same races and outside of the races. Unfortunately, it has engrained in our minds and psyche somehow throughout history that we as human beings discriminate against people of color who are darker in skin. It is not everyone, but some people actually do, we have to be real with ourselves, and admit it.

The economy began to grow in the 1960’s and has since developed and now has 1 in 7 households that are foreign born homeowners as of 2011. It is significant because as the population of foreign born individuals has grown so has the economic development in ownership, businesses, and geography. Migration into the United States borders from about 2000 to 2010 has been about is about 11.9 million to 13.8 million estimated foreign born immigrants entering into the US, according to the US Census bureau.

The numbers have increased ten-fold over the years since the 1960’s when people of color who were citizens had successfully established there civil rights in the America’s. I know how the people who are foreign born feel and felt when they were discriminated against in some shape or form. It is a horrible feeling. So let’s talk about how much business, households, and revenue’s Latino’s and foreign nationals have brought into the United States and could bring more with taxation.

The table will give you an idea of revenue’s that are sent, not including wired revenue’s, home ownership of foreign born nationals, and how many Latinos are in the United States.

The chart was composed of statistics available by and from the U.S. Census Bureau, as of 2012. These are the numbers that are the most current information available.

Buzz feed also produced a list of 14 good reasons for passing immigration reform and the facts that it would create more than 1.4 million jobs is not something any businessman or businesswoman should ignore ( Logically and economically informed about the numbers should give you an idea on what our country is missing today, and quite frankly since I am a Latina who grew up in an era were the concern for civil rights and our country was and still is a pivotal force in my life, I would be doing an injustice to everyone who knows me or even those who don’t know me if I did not advocate for the United States and its citizens well-being and prosperity.
