There is no citation in the demographic section, some joker apparently thinks all Hispanics are white Hispanic when clearly in the same section it is listed that more than 10% of the population is "some other race", which is the typical designation that Hispanics who are of mestizo origin give themselves. Because the article is locked I'm requesting that the total number of white Hispanics be amended to be only 26% and the total number of whites to be amended to only 70%, which would be the correct percentages. White Hispanic is not a Hispanic with any white ancestry at all, Hispanic is not a race. A white Hispanic is a Hispanic who identifies as part of the white race, mestizos do not consider themselves to be white.188.8.131.52 (talk) 05:26, 12 November 2013 (UTC)
Not sure when that got altered again; I've re-added the specific census numbers, fixed some of the links (the asian indian link pointed to the native american article), and removed anything not specifically stated in the cite. Kuru(talk) 12:58, 12 November 2013 (UTC)
In subsection Race and ethnicity, there is a list of ethnicities. If I sum up all the groups, I end up with a percentage above 100%. I suppose, the group of Europeans is too large in this table.

It adds up to 100%; do not include the hispanic/latio number at the end. Kuru(talk) 14:16, 28 November 2013 (UTC)
Is Texas the hottest state in the USA? Well its my favoret state. IM moveing there when Im 18. IM going to Denton. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Ashlynn Coach (talk • contribs) 17:18, 11 February 2014 (UTC)
Keep in mind too, that the rankings are based on overall averages, so much will depend on where in the state the city/town/area is located, and even such factors as humidity to take into account and to just how hot it "feels". For instance, roughly two-thirds of the state are in the humid to sub-humid sub-tropical part of the country, so 100 degrees in Lubbock may not "seem" as hot as 100 degrees in Denton. Hope this might have helped a bit! TexasReb (talk) 21:03, 13 February 2014 (UTC)
The end of the history section seems very unsatisfying, and abrupt. I have been trying to write something to add to the end.
Since the 1970s Texas population growth has outpaced that of the nation. Texas had a population of 11,186,730, in 1970, and in 2010, the state's population totalled 25,145,561. One factor leading to this increase was an oil boom in the 1970s. High rates of immigration from latin America, has led to a sharp rise in Texas' hispanic population.
The state's increased population has led to economic diversifation and even more growth. Companies such as Texas Instruments and SBC (now AT&T), have played a large role in the high tech industry. Due to the state's rapid growth, the state's major metropolitan areas have experienced significant suburban sprawl.
I think this is more appropriate for the History of Texas page. But i think it is a start. I really would like suggestions. Thanks. Oldag07 (talk) 07:24, 3 March 2014 (UTC)

Just wanted to let you know that on the state of Texas page.....you have Six Flags over Texas listed as in Grand Prarie...that is incorrect. You can call them or just google their location. Six Flags is in Arlington, Texas.....it's just minutes from the Texas Rangers Ballpark in Arlington and the Dallas Cowboys stadium....all which are in Arlington, Texas.
