Ha. I’ve been writing these essays for months, from from a frustrated-with-my-friends-on-the-left (and media) POV. Any coincidence the day after I followed you? Kidding.

So that should be noted — and even bolster your argument. You have the right data, but check 2013 or even as of this week the 2015 FBI report to see Hispanic/Latino added to a right column:
