White Californians are White Americans living in California. They currently make up 72.9%[when?] of the state's population. 38.0% of the population is non-Hispanic white.

As of 2015, California has the largest minority population in the United States. Non-Hispanic whites decreased from about 76.3 - 78% of the state's population in 1970[1] to 38.0% in 2015.[2] It was estimated in 2015 that Hispanic and Latino Americans became more numerous than non-Latino White Americans for the first time.[3] Since 2000 (the US Census), California has been known as the second state in US history (after Hawaii since its statehood in 1959) to have a non-white majority.

The largest named ancestries of white Californians are Mexican (25%), German (9%), Irish (7.7%), English (7.4%), Italian ( 5.8% ); there are 65 other ethnicities with sizable populations in California including Albanians, Australians, Canadians, Dutch, Portuguese, French and even White South Africans.[4] Both Los Angeles and San Francisco have large numbers of residents with English, French, Italian, German, Palestinian, Iranian, Russian, Ukrainian, Armenian and Scandinavian ancestry.[citation needed]

Being the largest state in population, California also has the largest population of White Americans in the U.S., totaling 21,453,934 residents as of the 2010 census, as well as the largest population of non-Hispanic whites, 17,029,126. However California has the third smallest percentage number of non-Hispanic whites at 57.2%, behind New Mexico and Hawaii.

Transcription

Hey, Naturals. What's going on? It's your favorite American English teacher Gabby here to help you today with eight Ways that you and anyone can sound more like a North American English Speaker now I know this is just the lesson that you've been waiting for I'm going to tell you eight Tricks and secrets that you probably didn't learn in your normal Traditional English classroom We're going to really focus on how to make your pronunciation and your accent more American like now I'm not saying that everyone should speak like an American But hey if you want to know how to do that I'm going to explain exactly how so instead of just trying to imitate or copy you're going to learn the specific points so that you can focus on what it means to speak like an American if You'd like to get a notification for when I make a new English lesson video and I'm putting out a lot of new ones these days make sure that you're subscribed to Go Natural English here on YouTube by clicking on the big red Subscribe button below It would be my honor to have you join our awesome community of Go Natural English learners here on YouTube and make sure you visit gonaturalenglish.com Where I post the blog lesson for each video to help you learn more Now let's begin with the 8 ways that you can sound more like an American English speaker Number one, let's talk about syllables every word that has at least Two syllables or more has a stressed syllable and a weak syllable, so let's just take the word American We have 3 syllables, right? American that's four syllables So when we have more than two syllables one is going to be stressed when which syllable is stressed in American Can you hear it? American so it's the second syllable right so in order to speak more like an American make sure that you really stretch that stressed syllable out make it longer make it louder make it higher say American with me now American and to balance this out the syllables that are not stressed are probably going to sound like a Schwa sound which is up that sound you make of someone punch of you in your gut you go Oh American Can you hear that? Uh American. Very Good so American English Really stresses the stressed syllable and makes the other syllables very weak number two learn Connected speech. Oh, it's so easy to say but yet there are so many different rules in connected speech, so let me quickly share several the most important with you in American English Especially whenever you find a t between two vowel sounds it's going to be a d. We don't drink water We drink water We don't put butter on our toast we put butter on our toast okay? so t between two vowels equals a d a T between an N, and a vowel gets removed International not International International dentist not dentist, but dentist when you have an N then a T then a vowel sometimes it becomes a glottal stop like Mountain or Or a vowel than a double t And a vowel like button or cotton when you have a t or a d between two Consonants it often gets removed old man, not old man old man most famous not most Famous, but most famous we blend and link sounds together when one word ends with a consonant and the next begins with a vowel or when the next word begins with the same consonant as the word before it ands With that was a big jumbled mess We blend and link sounds together from one word to the next for example social life becomes social life We also make two words seem as though They were one when we blend sounds together like this afternoon this afternoon Now I know I'm going really fast because I've made Specific lessons about most of these points in other video lessons on the go natural English channel So make sure to check those out if you'd like a more detailed explanation of each point You can click up here for one of my best lessons on linking and connected speech Assimilation is huge in American English did you becomes didja and don't you becomes dontcha? intrusion where we insert a new sound for example between he and Asked we insert the /j/ sound he asked or do and if we insert a /w/ sound do it he asked to do it and in some parts of the united states you have an R intrusion between vowels - like for example between Media and attention media attention Finally let me tell you about Elision where we omit a sound for example the t in the word kept when it comes before going kept going Number three in American English the R is so important and so frustrating for many English learners because it can be quite different than in your native language be aware of r-colored vowels for example in the word word Or why is it not ward it's her word or for example World why is it not World its world. So that is an r-colored vowel. We're about and before an R and it becomes err so a lot of American English vowels will become this sound that sounds like a pirate talking so get out your pirate hooks and go err When you make this sound or not because that's kind of weird when we have an r at the end of the word we usually pronounce it strongly I say usually because some people like in new England will cut that R off for example I parked my car Well, that's a Boston accent and yes, I have lived in Boston, but I never adopted that accent. I would say I park my car so but watch out for Different ways of using the R if you really want to sound American you need some American phrases like instead of asking How are you you can ask. What's up or instead of saying That's nice, or that's good You could say that's cool. Or that's awesome in general when you speak English try to speak a little bit louder verbs use a ton of phrasal verbs we rarely use a normal kind of academic verb in everyday speech in conversation so instead of the verb to exit or to leave say to get out or instead of saying to arrive say to Get in or instead of saying to start or to begin you could say get going Get going could also mean to leave so phrasal verbs can be kind of confusing but they're really key to use a lot of them if you want to sound like an American Native English speaker also start creating verbs out of nouns Like Google Google's a noun, but we say let's google it google that question or friend friend is a noun Right well I can friend you on Facebook So friend is now a verb so just take any noun you want and make it into a verb and you'll sound more American and finally Vocabulary so I did suggest to you some very American phrases like awesome, and what's up? But if you want to know quickly a few words that are different in American English as opposed to British English, we Say fall not autumn. We say faucet not tap We say apartment not flat elevator. Not lift diaper not nappy TV not telly and Candy not sweets. Oh, and one more that always catches me off guard We say take out not take away when we go to a restaurant, and we want to take the food home So I think that you are properly prepared now to sound really American like a native speaker So if you have questions about any of these points, I know I went really fast leave a comment Make sure to subscribe so that you can see you my answers to Your questions if I make a video to answer them and make sure to visit me at gonaturalenglish.com For more learning, and that's where you can get the English Fluency Formula ebook that I wrote for you as well Thank you so much for watching and I'll see you in another video lesson soon. Bye for now

History

The first White people to come to the modern-day State of California were the Spanish people.

The California Gold Rush(1848–1855) began on January 24, 1848, when gold was found by James W. Marshall at Sutter's Mill in Coloma, California.[5] The news of gold brought some 300,000 people to California from the rest of the United States and abroad.[6] The Gold Rush initiated the California Genocide, with 100,000 Native Californians dying between 1848 and 1868. This began the process of white people becoming the majority in present-day California.

Later White Americans from the East Coast of the United States and Midwestern United States arrived.

The percentage of people of non-Hispanic white ancestry continues to decrease dramatically.

By region

San Francisco Bay Area

In 2000 the racial makeup of the nine-county Bay Area was 3,941,687 (58.1%) white and 3,392,204 (50.0%) non-Hispanic white.

In 2010 the Bay Area was 3,755,823 (52.5%) White. The Bay Area was 3,032,903 (42.4%) non-Hispanic white.

The percentage of non-Hispanic white people in the Bay Area is projected to decrease.[7]

Central Valley

White Americans are the majority of the population in the Central Valley.

Los Angeles metropolitan area

54.6% White, 32.2% white alone. Cities and suburbs with a significant white population in the county are Malibu, Calabasas, Hidden Hills, Acton, Quartz Hill, Lancaster and Northwest Palmdale in the Antelope Valley.

By county

Politics

Historically and presently, politics of California have been dominated by white people.[8]

In the United States presidential election, 2016, California whites voted against Donald Trump by a 5 percentage point margin.

White people[which?] make up 60% of registered voters in California.[9]

Future

The non-Hispanic white population as a percentage of the whole is projected to decrease in California.[10] This is due to both the increase of the non-white population. In this sense demographers see California as a prediction of what is to come in the rest of the United States.
