Latinos edge whites out of majority | News for Dallas, Texas | Latest News: "Texas is officially a majority-minority state with a distinctly cafe-con-leche hue, thanks largely to Latino population growth.

Non-Hispanic whites dipped under the majority mark in Texas, around July 2004, the U.S. Census Bureau said Thursday. And minorities now make up about 50.2 percent of the state's population, heralding further wide-ranging changes in commerce and culture, education and politics.

The transformation was predicted three years ago by demographer Steve Murdock, who sees the shift as a 'mixed blessing' and one that indicates where the rest of the nation is heading."
