The Multi-Racial and Ethnic Shift in America

The Multi-Racial and Ethnic Shift in America | Mixed American Life | Scoop.it

Graphic based on Pew Research article “The Next America”

The country is slowly becoming more like a “rainbow,” according to a new book by Paul Taylor and Pew Research called “The Next America”.

Defining Mixed

These groups are all mixed in their heritage.

  1. Hispanic people are mixed by definition. Hispanic is not a race and Latin American countries have not had anti-miscegenation laws like the U.S. Most Latinos are part Amerindian mixed with some part(s) Spanish / Portuguese / Black.
  2. Black people have been mixed with others since the founding of the U.S., sometimes by choice and sometimes by force (enslavement rape). 
  3. Asian people have been mixing with others since anti-miscegenation laws have been abolished in the U.S.
  4. Other people includes Native American (1%) and Mixed people.
  5. White people are often mixed with ‘5 shades of White’, or they are White Latino, or they are ‘One drop of color / ‘passing as White’, aka 1/16th of color. White is not counted as White when mixed with people of color, which accounts for the decline in White numbers over time. The other reason the numbers for White drop is because Europeans no longer immigrate to the U.S. at any where near the same rate of other groups. European countries tend to provide good health care coverage and tend to have lower gun violence. For example, in the U.K. the routine patrol officers do not carry guns.


The numbers

Intermarriage among people of different races is increasingly common. In 1980, just 7% of all marriages in the U.S. were between spouses of a different race or ethnicity.  In 2010, that share has doubled to 15% of all new marriages in the U.S. Hispanics (26%) and Asians (28%) were most likely to “marry out,” compared with 9% of whites and 17% of blacks. – Pew Research


Marrying Out

If two people of mixed heritage marry, does Pew Research count that as an intermarriage?


Genocide or Population Control

  • Amerindians used to make up 100% of the Americas. Now the U.S. is only 1% Native American.
  • Black population is only expected to grow by 1% in 50 years. Mass-incarceration is removing Black people during the prime of their life, the time when most people are starting families. And police and vigilantes are killing Black people at the rate of 1 every 28 hours, and sometimes more frequently.
  • Asians were murdered by White people during the gold rush and also excluded from entering the U.S. between 1882 and 1965.
  • Latinos were lynched by White people during the gold rush.
  • Murdered by police Amerindian, Black, and Latino people are murdered by police more than other groups

Community Village Sites's insight:

Wells Fargo, why the different amounts for Latino and Black people? Why not one pool of money for both groups. Did you consider that many people are mixed race? Did you forget Native Americans, and impoverished Asian Americans?

QIU NINGYU's comment, May 20, 4:55 AM
I think that the increase in the number of interracial marriage shows a lot about our social atmosphere. The fact that people are more willing to have people of different races in their own families shows that the idea of racial superiority is slowly diminishing, racial segregation is also diluting although stereotype is still present. This is also a sign that people understand other races and are able to better appreciate them, moreover people’s mindset are progressing with time and that our society is evolving to be more inclusive and equal

Years ago I met a young adult and his grandmother at an author event at the Seattle Public Library. They both had a circular area on their scalp where hair sprouted that was white. In the grandmother this showed as a beautiful white curlycue, in the young man it was a white dot. Beautiful!
