A lot of people are upset by this phenomenon, or scared by it because "their" America is changing (and note the relatively brief timeline).
Lots more detail and analysis at The Washington Post. I know the second embedded graph is unreadable without double-clicking; I included it to demonstrate that the phenomenon is nationwide rather than localized.
I wonder how much those numbers are the result of present day polls / questionnaires that now ask very specific questions about race and ethnicity. And people now being very open about their multi-ness. As opposed to polls / questionnaires from some years back that only offered two or three race / ethnicity selections.ReplyDelete
These aren't "poll" numbers; they are derived from the U.S. census. But your comment re people expressing different race identity is still true,Delete
