The growth of Ethnic minorities in America has been phenomenal. Since 1980, the
Asian American population has almost tripled, Hispanic American more than doubled, Native
American increased 62%, and African American increased 31%, while the non-ethnic
population has remained almost the same.
This is a trend that is expected to continue.
The latest estimates by the
U.S. Census Bureau predict that the minority population will comprise fully half
the U.S. population by the year 2050.
