    From Wikipedia:

    The U.S. population's distribution by race and ethnicity in 2006 was as follows:[21][22]

    Total population: 299 million

    White

    Including 23.2 million White Hispanics: 74% or 221.3 million

    Not including White Hispanics: 66% or 198.1 million

    Hispanic or Latino ethnicity, of any race: 14.8% or about 44.3 million

    Black or African American alone: 13.4% or 40.9 million

    Some other race alone: 6.5% or 19 million

    Asian alone: 4.4% or 13.1 million

    Two or more races: 2.0% or 6.1 million

    American Indian or Alaska Native alone: 0.68% or 2.0 million

    Native Hawaiian or other Pacific Islander alone: 0.14% or 0.43 million

    The number for Hispanics could actually be a lot higher, not just because of illegal immigrants but just because of how many people from Mexico come here temporarily - the border makes for a lot of 'part time' citizens of both countries. I'm not sure how that's adressed in these numbers.

    Most people brake the same way, regardless of ethnicity. You press on the pedal to apply the brakes and eventually come to a stop. This is pretty much true all over the world.

    "brake by race"

    If the USA were a car, it would have one of those "I brake for no one" bumper stickers.

    Ok, Yahoo! Answers, new rule - if you can't even bring yourself to use the spell-check tool, you should be banned for 24 hours. Seriously.
