The New American Demographic: A Tale of Race, Sex & Money | Peking University

Event Details

This talk addresses some of the most pressing questions: Why is this changing happening? How are ideas about race and ethnicity changing in the U.S.? What are the political and cultural impacts of these changing demographics, and especially of what some have called the rise of “Generation Ambiguous”?

The United States is in the midst of a profound paradigm shift in racial demographics: the latest Census revealed that over 12 million Americans identify as being multiple races and political scientists estimate that a full 20% of the population will identify as multiracial by 2050. Multiracials are the fastest growing demographic in the U.S. along with Latinos and Asian Americans (especially those of Chinese, Korean and Filipino descent) and very soon Whites will no longer be a majority.

Professor Michele Elam of Stanford University is the speaker.
