I think the point he is trying to make is that the media and the political types always talk so much about Black voters and such, yet Blacks as a whole only comprise a mere 12% of the population. Hispanics as a whole are already a larger percentage than that and that will only increase in the future.

I think alot of poorer Blacks in America whine too much and always want the government to help them. Instead they should be helping themselves and/or working with family members to help each other. IMO there is too much emotional baggage amongst them.
Im glad Im not the only hispanic who feels like this.

Yes, and you are joined by 1/3 of your fellow Hispanics.
However, 2/3 apparently either don't feel or don't vote your way.
And thats what is going to make the Republicans a permanent minority unless they drastically change thier tune.

Dems said the same thing in '92. 2 years later, it was bye-bye 40 years of House rule. The GOP is a pretty inept party these days, but I don't see the Dems hanging on to total power for more than 4 years or so. They'll overplay their hand soon enough.
