For the First Time, Hispanic Surnames Among the Top Ten in the U.S.

Well, we have arrived; or, rather, the consequences of our arrival are becoming patent. As The New York Times reported today, the "Garcias Are Catching Up to The Joneses." Of course, the Cuban Garcías surpassed the Joneses, white or black, many decades ago. However, The Times does not mean economically but demographically. For the first time ever, two Hispanic surnames are now among the 10 most common in the nation. García is now the 8th most common last name and Rodríguez is 9th. Martínez almost made it to the Top Ten, but was edged out by Wilson. The rankings are based on the 2000 census. It is remarkable that it was taken the Census Bureau nearly eight years to make these calculations. By now, it is likely that Martínez is already among the Top Ten and possibly one or more Spanish surnames have cracked the name parade. As of 2000, 6 Hispanic names were among the top 25. One-fourth of the total, though Hispanics account for just 13 percent of the population (that figure is also grossly underestimated).

Well, the United States would certainly be an adornment to the other Hispanic nations. Since 1990, the U.S. Hispanic population has grown by 58 percent. A few more decades like that, while non-Hispanic whites obligingly plan, control and abort themselves into demographic extinction, and America will revert to its original inhabitants and colonists.

I see it. And so do all the Anglo bigots in this country who, if being themselves is not bad enough, must now contend with the additional humiliation that they are being unmanned in their own corral, to use a delicate phrase. They had better take a lesson from the mules or the inhabitants of Utah and stop this foolishness about building a Great Wall on the Mexican border when the Trojan horse is already intra muros.

If you know a García or a Rodríguez (and we all do), congratulate them.

Look for your surname:
