Hispanics now number one if five Americans
Hispanics are barely represented in American Politics while compromising 20% of our population. African Americans which represent 13% have much greater representation in or political leadership. In fact, America's four largest cities have Black administrations (NYC, Chicago, LA, Houston).
The Black population continues to shrink while Hispanics continue to represent a growing cohort.
There were 62.5 million Latinos in the United States in 2021, accounting for approximately 19% of the total U.S. population. In 1980, with a population of 14.8 million, Hispanics made up just 7% of the total U.S. population.
