Minorities Becoming a Majority?

U.S. Census data to be released today showing a growth in the minority population, including the dramatic growth of the Hispanic population in parts of the country that had relatively few Hispanics, is getting much press attention.  USA Today, the N.Y. Times, CNN, and many other news agencies have the story as a top feature, often with a few ominous statements about whites becoming a minority. Interestingly, some of the places seeing the largest growth in the Hispanic population, such as the county in which Hazleton, Pennsylvania is located, are seeing much anti-immigrant activity.
