History of the Latin population in the United States


To obtain a better understanding of the historical moment that the ever-growing Latin Community in the United States is experiencing we need to look at some numbers and some history:

On January 22, 2003, the first page of The New York Times had as a headline that there were more Latinos than Afro-Americans in the United States. Soon after, the census bureau published that since July of 2002 there were more Hispanics (38.8 million) than African-Americans (38.2 million) in the United States; in this way officially declaring Latinos as the biggest minority in the United States. The Latinizacion process started decades before in the United States and it has now accelerated, as the statistic show, and it will continue, making the United States one of the countries with the largest Latin population.
