The only possible explanation for that is the influence of immigration.

Gee, I wonder how many more times I could have said "Massachusetts" in the post above!
1) No, I am arguing with you because you are trying to equate two things that are not equalSo you're vociferously arguing with me because I implied that people who have that reaction are racist. Since that's not you, what's your problem?
2) I am taking offense because you accused me of being racist
As to this "alien culture", I am not even sure what that is supposed to be. If you are a southerner and move up north you will bring with you an alien culture. There is no monolithic American culture, we have always been a melting pot where cultures varied greatly between regions and ethnic groups. Why do care anyway? What does it matter?

I see you still can't get the #'s right. It's 2.4, not two and 2.4 fertility rate does get them close to doubling in 50 yearsA population simply does not double in less than 50 years on a 2 children per woman fertility rate alone. That is due to contribution made by immigration.
Yeah, now there's no Mexican culture in Texas or California!Which is why we conquered those areas, and displaced their local cultures, replacing them with our own.
The only simple thing about that is that it is simply wrong.The simple fact of the matter is that Latino immigrants are not "culturally American" and never have been. They are alien.
This thread is not about you, but it's funny how you're using a personal anecdote after arguing that personal anecdotes are not good arguments.I don't speak Italian or German even as a second language, and I don't fly an Irish flag outside of my home.
Latino culture is a part of American culture. Without it, American culture wouldn't be what it is.Again, it's our country. It's our culture.
If they're not willing to "play ball," they frankly have no business being here.
Every other immigrant group seems past and present seemed to understand this basic fact well enough. What makes Latinos so special that they need to be deliberately coddled so that they don't "lose their culture?"
I'm sorry, but I really couldn't care less about their culture. When they move to a new country, it should be expected to change.
And Latino immigrants have, and will continue, to assimilate.
I didn't say that it's not true. I guess you don't realize this but "Some of my best friends are (fill in the blank)" has been a classic line bigots have used to deny their bigotry. In All in the Family, Archie Bunker used to use his "friendship" with Lionel to argue that he wasn't a bigot.Believe what you want.
I've got pics, so it most assured did happen.
You do realize that 50 times the difference of .3 equals 1.5 and that's without compounding. And that to the 2, and you get 3.5 which means it's almost double the 2.1 rate of blacks, don't you?
Wait. You don't and you think you can lecture about simple math
