Richard Greene sees the possibility of Texas becoming a blue state due to the potential influence of the increasing Hispanic population (“National media handwringing about Texas,” May 4).

Greene cherry-picks a couple of older articles from The New York Times and the Washington Post, then throws in a few inflammatory phrases of his own about protecting the unborn, Hispanics seizing control, or accelerated socialisms.

Texas is no longer hats and boots. We are a very diverse state comprised of a myriad of ethnic groups, not just whites and Hispanics.

Any change in the color of our politics is most likely to come slowly, due to a lot of different reasons, not just the increase in Hispanic population.

— John H. Brown, Arlington
