The United States: a Little More Diverse Than What People Thought

After the results were released from the 2010 census, it has been established that more minority children are now being born in the United States than white children.

While race has been a common way of dividing people into different groups, and in most cases has been proven to no longer be important, it can sometimes provide statistical data on a country’s changing culture. For example, this shows that minorities need more recognition in educational aspects rather than just being pushed aside as not relevant to the mainstream education that formerly was taught. Additionally, it shows that there will be a higher demand for minority scholarships at higher education institutions in a few decades – which means that colleges will have to change their system of providing services to minorities.
