COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) – South Carolina’s Hispanic population has more than doubled in the past decade.

The U.S. Census Bureau on Wednesday released its data from the 2010 census in South Carolina that shows more than 235,000 people identified themselves as Hispanic in the state in 2010, a 148 percent increase from 2000.

The data also shows 3 of the state’s four fastest growing counties are near the coast. Beaufort, Dorchester, Horry and York counties all grew by more than 30 percent.

Twelve of the state’s 46 counties lost population, centered in the rural textile regions south of Interstate 85 and also rural counties south and east of Columbia away from the coast.

The Census Bureau says South Carolina’s population jumped more than 15 percent in the past decade to 4,625,364 people.

    This is just a glimpse of whats to come..

    Population will eventually turn the planet into a wasteland if its not at least equalized or to a negative growth state.
    Currently estimated to be 6.91 billion by the United States Census Bureau.
    The world population has experienced continuous growth since the end of the Bubonic Plague around the years 1348-1350.(Yes the 14th century)
    Annual births have reduced to 140 million since their peak at 173 million in the late 1990s, and are expected to remain constant, while deaths number 57 million per year and are expected to increase to 80 million per year by 2040. Current projections show a continued increase of population (but a steady decline in the population expected to reach between 7.5 and 10.5 billion in the year 2050..
    In short we are eating this planet alive unless we counteract with population control.
    We can only speculate on bible claimed natural events that could reduce population over all to some degree.
    Rest assured ..The “brown people races” are building their numbers for those events..
    I see a day in the not too distant future where the Caucasian race will be a minority..
    Maybe at that point I can be the minority and wont be refused sorely needed help I could use now after paying into the system for 52 years and never asking.
    Yeah I know don’t hold my breath
