By the end of this month, Latinos are expected to become the largest racial/ethnic group in California, surpassing the number of non-Hispanic whites living in the state, according to the Pew Research Center.

According to numbers released by the Pew Research Center, Latinos will make up 39% of California's population. This will make the Golden State the second state, behind New Mexico, to have the Latino population outnumber every other racial/ethnic group.

The Huffington Post reports that Texas could be the next state added to the list. According to the Pew Research Center, in 2012 there were 10 million Latinos and 11.6 million non-Hispanic whites living in Texas, making up 38.2% and 44.4%, respectively.

But after Texas, the Pew Research Center says it's unlikely any other state will be added to this short list anytime soon.
