  •  stanislaus county 2011 census (0+ / 0-)

    non-hispanic white: 46%
    hispanic/latino: 43%
    asian: 6%
    multiracial: 4%
    black: 3%
    native american: 2%

    so yes, whiter than san joaquin (which has higher % of asians (16%)  and blacks (8%)), but still majority-minority in terms of population. of the 28% of the county under 18, i would be willing to bet that a significantly larger proportion are "minorities" (an ironic word in contemporary california).

    nearly every county in the central valley has a significant minority population, that is weighted towards the young and growing fast. shasta and tehama county are about the only overwhelmingly white counties left in the valley.

    •  Agreed (0+ / 0-)

      That Stanislaus County has a large minority population, just not as large as San Joaquin's where the non Hispanic White population is below 40%
