That's the number of Hispanics living and working in Oklahoma. Get data here. Hispanics are the fastest growing minority group in the state with a 38% increase since 2000.

How many racists live in Oklahoma? Does the census bureau collect that data?

You make a great point! Go - girl!

In my adopted state of Texas, Hispanics will soon comprise the majority population.

GOOD NEWS: In Texas we'll have an ample supply of youthful workers. If we choose to educate this future workforce they'll have the skills to create jobs and support a thriving economy.

BAD NEWS: Unfortunately we have racists here too. Ya know, everything is bigger in Texas!

The State of Oklahoma (and the nation) would be wise not to pattern policies after the Lone Star State. Okie Brenda.
