I wonder if anyone bothered to tell the CNN people that while this year GCHS had the largest graduation class of 360 students, that this same class had approximately 800 students when they started at GCHS. An approximate 45% graduation rate. Also, there is almost a 10% pregnancy rate at the school. Is there any wonder that the hispanics are a majority here?
Nor did they say anything about the high crime rate, and the ridiculous amount people driving without insurance and drivers licenses. Of course our law enforcement officials don't want that known. After all, they are turning their heads on logs of crime in this county. Simply because they are pro-amnesty, and pro-illegal. Wonder who will pay their wages when the white majority moves and leaves it too the welfare recipents and criminigrants.

So, if minorities outnumber the majority, wouldnt that make THEM the majority?

Since Whites still hold claim to the overall majority they are technically considered the minority-majority or majority-minority whichever you prefer.

As the famous mural in East LA says: "We are not a minority".
