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!

Such a bunch of racist bullish*t on here. Does anybody read the news? California agriculture owners are having trouble planting and harvesting their crops because there aren't enough workers. It has become so dangerous to cross the border that the flow of undo***ented (easily exploitable) workers has slowed drastically. And despite the high unemployment in Calif., U.S. citizens aren't jumping to take the jobs. So unless you want to pay $20 for a head of lettuce, quit denigrating the migrant farm workers, and don't begrudge them a trip to the E.R. when they're sick. Food doesn't plant, harvest and process itself.

That's sad when a race of people, in this case Mexicans, come here to this Country illegally, could care less about this Country, and just want to try and take over by spreading their seed in anyway they can to benefit their race! How sad when you know that's the Damn truth!!

I find this completely racist and stereotypical. I am of mexican descent and I have NEVER received any public assistance in my life. My parents are both educated and I myself am working on my master's degree. I was not a teen mother, like everone assumes mexican-american women are, but rather am married to an equally educated man. Though we are established and in our mid 20s, we still do not have kids. This pisses me the hell off because not everyone who is mexican is a stereotype!!!!

And meet Obama care! These people come over here and keep having children the can't care for, they're not legal in most cases. Work illegally were getting free health care. If they were legal the kept having more kids to live off welfare! Makes me sick. It's not just California

This moron doesn't even realize what a stupid and inflammatory statement that is. Yeah, and that's why gangs run rampant and poverty is growing by the second.

If you learned about birth control and stopped popping kids like c.o.c.k.roaches, you'd help the planet, and maybe, just maybe, you wouldn't have to invade north America to feed your children!

I wonder if white people America realize that only 16% of the people on planet Earth are white. About 55% of the people are Asian ... from China, Malaysia and India.

On a global scale, white people have always been minorities. A lot of them probably didn't realize it.

What I'd like to know is when Hispanic and Latino became a specific race. Why aren't Latinos and Hispanics catagorized by what race they are instead of their ethnicity and culture. There are white people all over Latin America. Hell most Mexicans have white in them and just don't want to admit it.
