Evelyn (Photo credit: Wikipedia). I honestly don’t know why this photo strikes me as funny. Is she waiting for the Pew Research Center’s study so she can analyze the pie charts? Why is she miffed?
According to Dylan Stableford, Yahoo! News, The Lookout, Asian immigrants have surpassed the number of Hispanics immigrating to the US, based on a new study by the Pew Research Center.
Stableford’s piece references the Pew study, called
“The Rise of Asian Americans,” which was released on June 19th. The report states that Asian-Americans have the highest income, are best educated, and are the fastest-growing racial groupin America.
What does this mean for the racial makeup of America? Well, in the short-term it means that the Caucasian majority will probably be holding onto their reins of power all the more tightly and deifying the Anglo vision of genetic perfection all the more (and consolidating their power bases even more). In the long term, it means clearly that the US will be more multicultural than ever before, at least in terms of physical appearance.
Here’s a link to the piece:
