9. Something about your post bugs me

Why would "new settlers" have needed to "take over" Puerto Rico? You mean new, European settlers? Since when has statehood depended on that? What's wrong with Latin American culture? About a third of the United States was Spanish before it was "American." Texas was part of Mexico for much longer than it has been part of the United States.

There are families in Colorado and New Mexico who can trace their ancestry back to many, many year before the English ever came to America. Some families in Texas became "American" because of where they happened to be standing at the time. Your post seems quite xenophobic to me.

You mentioned Hawaii, the one state in this country that has NEVER had a white or European majority, and I think Hawaii is doing just fine. New Mexico and Texas have more Latinos than they do any other ethnic group.

And as for being poor, have you heard of Mississippi, eastern Kentucky, and most of West Virginia??
