A lot more Mexicans claim their native American Heritage vs. their European heritage.

I don't think it will be about black vs
White, it will be about European vs. Hispanics.
Black as an "issue" has been marginalized for quite some time. All you have to do is look at the speeches given by thought leaders at the LBJ summit on the civil rights acts.

That's because they are in the minority. Hispanic culture is extremely strong in this country, in radio, tv, and certain sectors of industry. There are some whitewashed of course, but in my opinion most Hispanics in America have zero desire to assimilate with whites.

"I don't think most of the Hispanics who will make up that 28% will consider themselves white at all. 
It's those south Americans who do that the most and their numbers aren't that large."


I agree with this. The vast majority of the Hispanics that come to this country are brown-skinned and look more obviously of Latin or Afro-Hispanic descent than European. And it's not just skin color, it's also their Native American features as well. Unlike so many European immigrants, it's not merely a matter of the next generation being born native American English speakers or simply learning to speak without an accent in order to assimilate into white culture. It would take generations of widespread interracial procreation before a big enough part of the majority would be able to credibly identify as white. Even then, with so many family members who would marry other brown skin folks or black folks, they wouldn't be able to escape their heritage the same way European immigrants did. Couple that with the current political climate, I think it's highly unlikely that Latinos are going to be aligning themselves with white folks. It's more likely that Latinos will continue describing themselves as such and will wind up aligning themselves with black folks both politically and socially.
