African, Hispanic, and Asian American Demographics

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.
