Corning, California

I was born and grew up in Corning, California. The interesting point I am working on getting to is statistics. 99% of all statistics are completely made up. Here is an example extracted from the article on Corning, California with bold text emphasis mine:

As of the census[2] of 2000, there were 6,741 people, 2,422 households, and 1,642 families residing in the city. The population density was 2,320.3 people per square mile (894.4/km²). There were 2,614 housing units at an average density of 899.8/sq mi (346.8/km²). The racial makeup of the city was 74.48% White, 0.52% African American, 2.18% Native American, 0.53% Asian, 0.09% Pacific Islander, 17.42% from other races, and 4.78% from two or more races. Hispanic or Latino of any race were 50.82% of the population.

Could someone please tell me how 74.48% can be White while 50.82% are Hispanic or Latino of any race? This must be new math as that adds up to a bit over 100%.
