-California has more people of Asian background than any other state: 5.5 million.
-Hawaii is a majority-Asian state: Asian Americans make up 57 percent of the population there.
Take that, Latinos!
In fact America's Asian population grew by 30 percent in all states except Hawaii, where its growth was 11 percent, according to the Census, which adds:
The top five states that experienced the fastest growth were Nevada with 116 percent, Arizona with 95 percent, North Carolina with 85 percent, North Dakota with 85 percent, and Georgia with 83 percent.
Damn. That's the cowboy/redneck belt. Good luck.
