Chivas USA Star

Latinos Are Baby Making Machines

Of Course We're Taking Over Cali

MLS player Carlos Alvarez isn't shocked white people are now officially a minority in California because as he puts it, "Latinos have a lot of kids" -- but he tells TMZ Sports he thinks this is the beginning of a revolution. 

We spoke to the Chivas USA midfielder about the huge news that Cali's Latino population hit 39% this month ... edging out the white population (38.8%) for the first time.

23-year-old Alvarez is 1 of 6 siblings raised in East L.A. -- born to Mexican immigrant parents -- and says almost everyone he grew up with was also a 1st generation American from a large family.

Alvarez says he thinks the Cali milestone could be huge for the Latino-American community -- "This might cancel people's fears about going to the polls" because they'll feel better represented.

Translation: there's strength in numbers.

Alvarez is a registered voter, but says he's still trying to convince his own parents to turn out on election day.

He adds, “This is a teaching moment for our community to really understand and make sense of the issues – and get out there and vote!

I've never been to a part of California that had rampant welfare Mexicans, but I know the Miami area well, and there is a huge Cuban population. Apparently unlike California, much of our Cuban population are hardworking and successful people who make it a point to help their own be successful and not suck off the government teat. Of course there is the worthless and criminal element and though I can't cite a statistic, it seems that that element is no more prevalent than the worthless whites, blacks, or any other ethnicity. It's a bonus to have a bit of education in Spanish, but that's the way it is and it isn't going to change. As long as people are hardworking I don't have a problem with it.

This could explain why the state of California is broke. They are in horrible financial ruins. Im from San Jose, born and raised and can tell you that 25 yrs ago is about when this once successfully, great place to raise a family started to slip. Today 2014 it,s become more ghetto, crime has soared . Half of Califonias teens dont graduate high school. I can go on and on but wont, its very sad.

I'm so tired of folks celebrating this. It's due to an open border for cheap labor for corporations. It crowds emergency rooms and creates traffic and even crime (MS13). All of the gay white men who are suddenly obsessed with Latinos love it. "They're just trying to better themselves." So is that guy who robs a bank.

Having a lot of kids in Latino families is not a tax benefit for them sis just a cultural thing to have big extended family. Take in consideration mostly this is not a polygamist thing with a dew wives and a litter of kids. Latinos usually have most of the kids with just one woman. Isn't like baby dadd's are 3 and the mother is still single. I know lots of white ppl who have a lot of children they are not in big cities though like Latinos are is just big cities

The teaching moment should be the overpopulation of our planet. If everyone has 6 or more kids we'll all be fcked within 30 years. This planet doesn't have endless resources,but no one cares, and idiots like the duggsrs are celebrated when they should be spayed and neutered.

If the minorities becomes the majority will there be a power shift Real power comes from having money in your pocket. He who has the wealth has the power. Without the wealth, the percentages mean zilch.
