Hispanics/Latinos Are New Jersey’s Largest Minority Group

By Art Gallagher

Hispanics have surpassed African Americans as the largest minority group in New Jersey, according to the 2010 U.S. Census figures released this week.   The census reported 1,555,144 Latinos living in the Garden State in 2010 compared to 1,204,826 African Americans.  

Over the decade, the Hispanic population grew 39% in New Jersey from 1,117,191 reported in the 2000 census.  The African American population declined .6% from 1,211,750. 

Apparently Planned Parenthood’s Negro Project which seeks to limit the growth of the African American community by encouraging abortions is working in New Jersey.
