California has become a “minority majority” state

No race or ethnic group constitutes a majority of the state’s population: 39% of state residents are Latino, 38% are white, 14% Asian American, 6% African American, 3% multiracial, and less than 1% American Indian or Pacific Islander, according to the 2015 American Community Survey. In 2015 Latinos surpassed whites as the state’s single largest ethnic group.
