(Politico) State demographers say California’s Hispanic population will equal that of whites within six months and exceed it early next year — a milestone in the country’s racial and ethnic shifts.

By 2020, demographers say Hispanics will be about 41 percent of California’s population, with whites less than 37 percent.
