U.S. DEMOGRAPHICS ARE CHANGING
According to the 2010 census, the resident population of the U.S. was comprised of 64% White, 15% Hispanic, 14% Black and 7% Asian American. The current projection is that by 2050, there will be no group in the majority. But by 2060, 56% of the population will be comprised of groups now considered minority. In fact, in 2015, 40% of the U.S. college students were from minority groups.
