This is great! I remember when i was little I only knew 3 hispanic adults who had gone to college. Four of us ended up going to college in my family and there is no question that my niece is going when she grows up. I'm glad my kids will view it as normal to be looking forward to college. I just hope they don't major in some liberal arts mess cause I am not paying for THAT!

What you better hope is that there's jobs for college graduates when they come out

The uneducated backwards Baggers and RedNecks must be blowing a cork reading this blog. Good for the Latinos. BTW Latinos are real Christians, not the fake Born Agains who want to destroy everything that is not in their interest. If I was told I had a choice of snobby Born Agains or down to earth Latino's for neighbors, The Latino's would win every time. Truly nice people, without an agenda.

There are onlu four races of people and none of them are Latino or Hispanic...
P.S. Latino and Hispanic are contrived names made up to sound European... so as not to be seen as Mexicans which is what they are.....

in Latin its called diatriba. Baggers are good with diatriba.

This is great news! Immigrants are the back bone of this wonderful country, can't wait to see where the next generation takes us!
06:41 PM on 06/09/2011
This article has nothing to do with immigrants.
06:52 PM on 06/09/2011
No.

Citizens are the 'backbone' of this country.

You sick, deluted hatred for your own people is the problem.
07:05 PM on 06/09/2011
Actually I am a human, and my grand parents were immigrants, this great nation is made of people from all over. I pity you and all the anger you carry around- one has to ask- why so much anger?

Definitely a good thing, but I would like to see this among all Americans and not look at it through the lens of race only.

What is? Latino?
05:58 PM on 06/09/2011
It's a demographic, which, for all practical purposes, is treated as a race in the US
05:34 PM on 06/09/2011
I agree; unfortunately, the statistics used in the U.S. is largely based on race and not on class or income level. They go straight to race since, honestly, the United States was built on racism.

So you still hear, "Oh my, an Hispanic (or Black, or Native American) are going Graduate school. Wow!"

NO $4!t. Those people, like people from all background, do value education! I've been told that statement above often during my Master's and now during my Doctorate's (I'm Black). Therefore, this whole racial statistics won't go away anytime soon.

The emerging electoral demographics of the next decade will not be kind to Conservative candidates. They've been waging a "cultural war" for the last 50 years.

The emerging increases in Hispanic voters, the growing acceptance of homosexuality, the decreasing dependency on religion in our daily lives... These are all things that the GOP was once able to campaign on as a threat.

But in campaigning against cultures smacking of "the other," the GOP failed to take into account that they would alienate the growing demographics they were demonizing. Through their ethnocentric dismissal and slander of other cultures, the GOP has unwittingly set the time clock on their own disintegration.

Johnson knew he was losing the South when he signed the Civil Rights Act. I don't think the Republicans know that they're losing an entire generation.

You're an idiot! I am currently getting my Master's Degree in Curriculum & Instruction. My son just received his degree in Criminal Justice from UNL & my younger son just completed his sophomore year at UNL. We're Hispanic & proud of it.

Remember, unless you're 100% Native American, you're one of the hundreds of millions of Americans who are descendants of immigrants at some point in our country's short history.

You nailed it! Great to hear about your family- best of luck to them all!

Hispanics have more real American blood in them than most Americans. So says the white monkey...
