Overview

En las elecciones del 2004, hubo 3 millones más votantes hispanos que en el año 2000. Los hispanos pusieron al presidente George W. Bush en la Casa Blanca en el 2000 y luego lo reeligieron en el 2004. Es imposible ignorar una influencia tan grande y un voto tan importante.

El cambio más dramático que está viviendo este país no tiene nada que ver con la guerra contra el terrorismo o con la economía; tiene que ver, simplemente, con la revolución demográfi ca impulsada por los latinos. Es la Ola Latina. Enel 2002 los latinos se convirtieron, ofi cialmente, en el grupo minoritario más grande de Estados Unidos, superando los 38 millones de habitantes, cosa que no se esperaba que ocurriera hasta dentro de una década más. Para el año 2125habrá más latinos que blancos (no hispanos) en Estados Unidos. Es decir, loshispanos pasarán de minoría a mayoría. Basándose en entrevistas con los másreconocidos expertos en temas latinos y con hispanos que viven a lo largo yancho de los Estados Unidos, Ramos intenta descifrar lo que signifi ca este sorprendentecambio demográfi co para todos los norteamericanos, hispanos o no,tanto en su vida diaria como en su cultura.

Con el profesionalismo, precisión, y sensibilidad que lo caracteriza, Ramosnos muestra quienes son, exactamente, estos nuevos americanos, cuáles son susintereses políticos y por qué es importante que el resto del país se preocupe porentender lo que es la "experiencia latina". Quien ignore el reto de los latinos,corre el riesgo de darle la espalda al futuro de Estados Unidos.

    A tsunami or just a high tide?

    The author has the demographic numbers that a wave on Latinos will greatly affect the future of the USA. It is a wake up message for many and confirmation of population changes forthcoming due to birth or immigration [illegal and legal] by Latinos. Texas is already a majority minority state by Latinos and LA has a larger Latino population than most Central/South American cities. In 2125 there will be more Latinos than whites. In 1970 Latinos were 5% of population, in 2002 they represented 13.5 %. Latinos, says the author, are different and distinct and will shatter the melting pot of America. Latinos maintain close ties with their country of origin through phone/email, etc. and the proximity of their home country. The author explains how Latinos had a key role in helping Pres. Bush win his 2000 campaign. At the end of the book the author lists a number of things that will have to change or be changed by the wave of Latinos. The question is will it have a tsunami effect on America or be a high tide of a new demographic coming into current society.
