America is supposedly about to become "majority minority." It won't happen.
There is no better place to witness this phenomenon than where I live, the state of Hawaii. There is no one "race" or ethnic group that dominates, and many people are multiracial/multicultural. There was a brilliant NY Times photo essay depicting this 6/28/2019 "Want to be Less Racist? Move to Hawaii". The pictures spell it all out. It is lovely to be in a place where no one is in the majority. I'm not saying there aren't factions, dominant political groups, resentments, etc. It's just that it is a lovely melting pot that could be a model for the future. Turns out, though, that this is the bluest of blue states, and that's why we moved here. Is it just a random thing that that happened, given our diversity? Just saying.
Another unappreciated aspect of this debate is that in the case of America’s largest “minority,” Hispanics, over 50% classify themselves racially as white, and are of mainly European descent. Their grandchildren, like the Italians and Eastern Europeans before them, will be thought of as white.
Wow. This is one of the more optimistic takes I've heard in a good while. Appreciate the piecen
This argument goes to the other extreme. But neither argument confronts the overwhelming issue of Black lives. There has never been any evidence that children of interracial marriages become anything other than Black. And these marriages are much much rarer than other interracial marriages. For Blacks, and children of interracial marriages we have a caste system like in India; Wilkerson has just published a book, CASTE, on this subject. And the reason that you have a well functioning diverse society in Hawaii is that there are very few Blacks who live there. So, yes, move to Hawaii if you do not want to deal with the issues of Black Lives Matter.
Thank you for clear concise reasoning for the future of our country.
