You know, Ms. Koco ...

 

it's hard for me to imagine L.A. with with a majority-Hispanic population!!    When I left (17 years ago, now!) ... there were definitely a LOT of Hispanics there.  But, they were mostly still in their "barrios" ... and parts of the city were known as "Little Mexico" (like East L.A. and the MacArthur Park area) ... but, the greater Los Angeles area STILL belonged to Black people!!!

 

Now ... all my friends and family that I talk to that are still there describe pretty much the same things you do ... where it seems like they have "taken over" pretty much everything .. pretty much everywhere!!

 

My cousin was telling me how whereas you used to see Black people in jobs in  stores as the cashiers or working at the malls or in the fast food places, now, those jobs are being dominated by Latinos!!!  And not only are they the workers, but they're also the supervisors and managers ... who primarily only hire other Latinos to fill job openings!!

 

Whenever I go home to visit ... I guess I do notice that there's a bunch of 'em around ... but I don't get to see it like that on a daily basis, so it's just hard for me to imagine life in L.A. where there's Mexicans like ....  EVERYWHERE!!!    Back when I was living there, there were a majority young BLACK girls in the kinds of programs you run!!

 

But, like I said ... everybody I know says the SAME thing.  It's supposed to be that way here in Texas, too.  I think we're the FIRST state in the nation to now be a Hispanic-majority state.  They're at  52%, according to the latest census.  But, they're mostly in El Paso ....  and haven't "taken over" here yet. 

 

You know ... sometimes I wonder if White folks even SEE what's comin' at them ... from some of the things they've done???    And the mistakes from their ignorance of thought that they've made.
