Mayor Mark Holland spoke to the Latino group, the National Council La Raza, saying 62 languages are spoken in his city and that there is no ethnic majority. To Drudge, Breitbart and WND, this means he is “bragging” that “our white population plummet.” There was no brag, just stating facts about the changing face of his city, and that scares the right.

The mayor of Kansas City, Kansas, in an address to the radical socialist organization National Council of La Raza, bragged that his city is no longer majority white and the city’s schools now have students who speak 62 different languages.

According to the 2010 U.S. Census, Kansas City, Kansas, was 52 percent white…

Kansas City, he said, “is very proud of the work of National Council of La Raza.”

“Kansas City, Kansas, is a city with no ethnic majority. Kansas City, Kansas, is 40 percent white, 28 percent Latino, and 26 percent African-American,” Holland said. “Our school district speaks 62 different languages by the children every single day. And Kansas City, Kansas, has a proud heritage of welcoming all people into the community, people who are not welcome in other places.”

He wasn’t “bragging” about whites “plummeting” but he was stating a truism: America is changing. And to the right, this is an excuse to stir up nativist fears.
