History of the Latin population in the United States

To obtain a better understanding of the historical moment that the ever-growing Latin Community in the United States is experiencing we need to look at some numbers and some history:

On January 22, 2003, the first page of The New York Times had as a headline that there were more Latinos than Afro-Americans in the United States. Soon after, the census bureau published that since July 2002 there were more Hispanics (38.8 million) than African-Americans (38.2 million) in the United States; in this way officially declared Latinos as the biggest minority in the United States.
