Less than a quarter of Americans with roots from Spanish-speaking countries prefer the pan-ethnic labels, Hispanic and Latino, according to a Pew Hispanic Center report released Wednesday.

“When Labels Don’t Fit: Hispanics and Their Views of Identity” by Paul Taylor and Associates at the Pew Hispanic Center in Washington D. C. looks at the self-images of the nearly 50 million Latinos living in the United States. The bilingual survey collected data from 1,220 Hispanic adults.

Just before the 1970 Census, The United States government mandated the use of “Hispanic” and “Latino” to describe Americans that come from Spanish-speaking countries.

Today, 47 percent said they consider themselves very different from the typical American.

According to the report, 69 percent said Hispanics in the United States have many different cultures and 51 percent most often identify with their countries of origin.

82 percent showed a deep connection the Spanish language, as 95 percent believe it is important to pass on the language to the next generation.

Likewise, 87 percent say it is important for immigrant Hispanics to learn English to succeed.

The report found that regardless of where they were born, the majority of Hispanics say life in the United States is better than in their ancestral country.

87 percent of Latino adults say the opportunity to get ahead is better in the United States than in the country of their ancestors and 72 percent say the United States is better for raising children than their home country.


Asia for Asians, Africa for Africans, White countries for everyone????????

Everybody says there is this RACE problem. Everybody says this RACE problem will be solved when the third world pours into EVERY white country and ONLY into White countries.

The Netherlands and Belgium are more crowded than Japan or Taiwan, but nobody says Japan or Taiwan will solve this RACE problem by bringing in millions of third worlders and quote assimilating unquote with them.

Everybody says the final solution to this RACE problem is for EVERY white country and ONLY White countries to "assimilate," i.e., intermarry, with all those non-Whites.

What if I said there was this RACE problem and this RACE problem would be solved only if hundreds of millions of non-blacks were brought into EVERY black country and ONLY into black countries?

How long would it take anyone to realize I'm not talking about a RACE problem. I am talking about the final solution to the BLACK problem?

And how long would it take any sane black man to notice this and what kind of psycho black man wouldn't object to this?

But if I tell that obvious truth about the ongoing program of genocide against my race, the White race, Liberals and respectable conservatives will just say that I'm a naziwhowantstokillsixmillionjews.

They say they are anti-racist. What they are is anti-White.

Anti-racist is a code word for anti-White.
