More Hispanics Declaring Themselves White

MAY 21, 2014

By Nate Cohn

Hispanics are often described as driving up the nonwhite share of the population. But a new study of census forms finds that more Hispanics are identifying as white.

An estimated net 1.2 million Americans of the 35 million Americans identified in 2000 as of “Hispanic, Latino or Spanish origin,” as the census form puts it, changed their race from “some other race” to “white” between the 2000 and 2010 censuses, according to research presented at an annual meeting of the Population Association of America and reported by Pew Research.

The researchers, who have not yet published their findings, compared individual census forms from the 2000 and 2010 censuses. They found that millions of Americans answered the census questions about race and ethnicity differently in 2000 and 2010. The largest shifts were among Americans of Hispanic origin, who are the nation’s fastest growing ethnic group by total numbers.

Race is an immutable characteristic for many white, black and Asian-Americans. It is less clear for Americans of Hispanic origin. The census form asks two questions about race and ethnicity: one about whether individuals are of Hispanic or Latino origin, and another about race. “Hispanics” do not constitute a race, according to the census, and so 37 percent of Hispanics, presumably dissatisfied with options like “white” or “black,” selected “some other race.”

The researchers found that 2.5 million Americans of Hispanic origin, or approximately 7 percent of the 35 million Americans of Hispanic origin in 2000, changed their race from “some other race” in 2000 to “white” in 2010. An additional 1.3 million people switched in the other direction. A noteworthy but unspecified share of the change came from children who weren’t old enough to fill out a form in 2000, but chose for themselves in 2010.

The data provide new evidence consistent with the theory that Hispanics may assimilate as white Americans, like the Italians or Irish, who were not universally considered to be white. It is particularly significant that the shift toward white identification withstood a decade of debate over immigration and the country’s exploding Hispanic population, which might have been expected to inculcate or reinforce a sense of Hispanic identity, or draw attention to divisions that remain between Hispanics and non-Hispanic white Americans. Research suggests that Hispanics who have experienced discrimination are less likely to identify as white.

The data also call into question whether America is destined to become a so-called minority-majority nation, where whites represent a minority of the nation’s population. Those projections assume that Hispanics aren’t white, but if Hispanics ultimately identify as white Americans, then whites will remain the majority for the foreseeable future.

White identification is not necessarily a sign that Hispanics consider themselves white. Many or even most might identify their race as “Hispanic” if it were an explicit option. But white identification may still be an indicator of assimilation. White identifiers are likelier to be second- and third-generation Hispanics than foreign-born and noncitizen Hispanics. They also have higher levels of education and income. The researchers’ data did not show the country of origin of the families of those people who shifted their identification.

The results are a strong sign that fears of a unique “Hispanic challenge,” where Hispanics immigrants might remain as a permanent Spanish-speaking underclass, are overblown.

In that regard, the census numbers are not new: There is mounting evidence that Hispanics are succeeding in American society at a pace similar to that of prior waves of European immigrants.

    I thought Hispanics were suppose to be people from Spain and 🤬 . Latino was for guys like Jose that rode on top of the train risking life and death to escape mexico.

    No Hispanic basically means colonized by Spain/Spainards (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hispanic) unless you're speaking about the ancient people who also colonized what was once the Iberian peninsula. So Jose is a Mestizo Mexican, who most likely would be properly identified as Mestizo Hispanic.

    Latino however is used to denote those that have a Latin influenced culture hence why Brazilians are Latino but not Hispanic.

    Why is "White" a race - when it doesn't specify any geographic location ?

    We consider the White people in America to be of European descent, but I doubt Europeans consider themselves "White". Those options need to be re-thought.

    As far as Hispanics choosing "White" - if "Hispanic" isn't a race and it's one of the options, then maybe it 🤬 them off. That, or they're sellouts.

    Some people don't seem to realize that the story is about Hispanic assimilation.

    There are white Hispanics (spain and their descendants from S America) but this article is talking about the descendants of the first peoples of the east side of the planet. The brown people who crossed the Bering straight thousands of years ago and some being descendants of the African slave trade

    Hispanic isn't considered a "race", universally.

    Blacks, whites and mestizos(commonly considered synonymous with Chicanos here, who prefer not to identify as black, white or mixed) make up the majority of it.
    Any time you're dealing with a socially constructed concept such as "race" designed to categorize phenotypes for discriminatory purposes, nothing is ever cut and dry.

    Pico is right, OP starts pointless and trivial threads.

    He'll start crying and catching feelings about people disagreeing with him and giving him negative reactions soon like he did in his last thread. See:814e9d95e3e073cd5177e63a8643b699
    Wow, my OP is getting a ton of flags now. All for trying to get you all to be aware of this book and the potential damage that it could do, and so why we need to fight back.

    It is almost unbelievable. It is almost like you are working for the white man himself.

    But, this thread was created by an ultra sensitive little girl who is obsessed with race-bating.

    I believe we had this conversation already.

    We already know more Hispanics and Latinos are considering themselves white.
