[WATCH] U.S. Demographics by Race in 2050 – Priyank Shah at TEDxColumbus

[WATCH] U.S. Demographics by Race in 2050 – Priyank Shah at TEDxColumbus | Community Village Daily | Scoop.it

Dr. Shah says "Dramatic considerable increase for all other groups", regarding the year 2050 vs. 2010. He ignores African Americans going down in percentage. Alarming. At least three things are causing African-Americans not to grow as a percentage of U.S. population: cops are killing Black people at the rate of about one every 26 hours, mass incarceration during the prime of their life, and classist immigration policies which favor the highly educated.

The 2017 Criminal Justice Reform Act

The 2017 Criminal Justice Reform Act | Community Village Daily | Scoop.it
Governor Andrew M. Cuomo today unveiled the 6th signature proposal of his 2017 agenda: delivering comprehensive criminal justice reform to fix the broken front end of the criminal justice system. The xxx reform package will lead the nation by working to address the root causes of poverty, crime and incarceration that trap too many New Yorkers and weaken our families and communities. New York will begin by reforming our state’s antiquated bail system to take into account the threat a defendant poses to public safety when making bail and release decisions. The state will also increase the number of judges, adding 30 statewide to hear criminal matters, as well as develop and formalize an effective administration approach to ensure New Yorkers constitutional right to a speedy trial.

Election Results in the Third Dimension

Election Results in the Third Dimension | Community Village Daily | Scoop.it

"By extending each region into the 3rd dimension, it’s possible to show the relative importance of each region while retaining the map’s shape, keeping the areas recognizable. In this case, the height of each county corresponds to its total number of votes, though it could just as easily show population or share of the electoral vote. For a closer look, see the full screen interactive version."

Seth Dixon's curator insight, December 16, 2016 3:55 PM

We've all probably seen enough maps of the 2016 presidential election and are familiar with the basic patterns (although my favorite is still the interactive that let's you redraw the states to alter the election).  This 3D map certainly though is an innovative way to portray some of the disparities in the U.S. electorate.
