I agree with the prompt because eventually the white race and the black race will be mixed whether it’s with each other or another race. Olson brings up statistics to prove his point when it comes to the United States. He uses the years 1990 and 2000 to prove that the number of interracial couples quadrupled. The number went from 1.5million to 55milion married couples. Within 10 years the number had quadrupled meaning that the pure races such as white, African American, Asians, and Native American’s are decreasing.
Homelessness and Functionalism The social problem that I chose was homelessness. Homelessness has increased by 8% since 2011-2012 to more than 225,000 people in 2014-15 and in 2011 censers 105,237 people where homeless. As also the unemployment rate and the domestic violence rate which both are increasing as well as these are some of the big factors . The biggest reason homelessness is domestic violence. We look are homelessness and functionalism and how on a macro leave how it affects homeless.
The Appalachia region is less racial and culturally diverse than the rest of the United States. Though, this seems to be gradually shifting. Traditionally, the region has been largely occupied by non-Hispanic whites. The 1990 census exposed the beginning of racial and ethnic change of the Appalachian region (Salob, 2014). The proportion of African Americans was 24.9 percent which was approximately three times greater than non-Hispanic whites at 8.1 percent The poverty rate amongst African Americans in Appalachia was 27 percent with 12.1 percent being non-Hispanic whites.
Currently the Native-American population is less than one-half of percent in Texas, while during the nineteen century there were at least twenty-three groups of Native-Americans. During the ten years period the Anglo majority varied from 60.7% to 53.1. The term Anglos includes such nations as Jews, Irish and Poles. At the same time the number of Hispanic increased from 25.5% to 32%. Coupled with this, the percentage of Asian Americans and African Americans increased as well (Lineberry et al.
There was double the amount of immigrants than prior years, especially in the California and Los Angeles areas. This lead to the creation of Koreatown, a congregation of Korean businesses. In this town, there were countless Korean families who began their businesses from the ground up to achieve their version of the "American Dream". At this time, race was regarded as a divider between interactions ergo, racial tension was present in the community. With the pent up anger and tension, the result was violence and the beginning of the L.A.
According to history, race and ethnicity mainly consisted of white and black, however with the recent (last 50 years) influx of immigrants, the trend shows a diversification that will increase in the future. United States is slowly diverging from white and black, where it is now considered as a multi-ethnic and race society. The book states that Latinos and Asians are able to mix with white people due to their skin color and socioeconomic status, though those with darker skin will be often considered as an African American. The predictions for the future refer to a higher amount of interracial families, where the line will no longer be between white and black, but nonblack and
Hotspots expanded predominantly to the east and south during the last two decades. Both Black and White suburbanization expanded in opposite directions; Whites spread in the north and the Blacks suburbanization was in the South. The Dissimilarity Index indicated that census tracts in the counties of Paulding, Cobb, DeKalb, and Gwinnett have lower dissimilarity in their population. PSID Migration data indicated that in the early decades Black people tend to move to predominantly black neighborhoods, in the recent decades however, black people are showing increased preference to move to more diverse places in Atlanta. Whites preferred to move to predominantly white neighborhoods.
As you know immigration is a huge problem in the United States, data shows that over the past year’s Texas has increases its size dramatically. In the website Texas State Historical Association states data that since the year 1850 Texas started out with the population of 212,592 and on 2010 the population growth increased to 25,145,561. However, we do not know the exact number of these people that are not American Citizens. In the Washington Post it states that “there are more than 11 million immigrants living, working and establishing families in the United States illegally”. Texas has approximately 1,650,000 almost close to 1.7 million of people who are illegal immigrants that are residents here.
Anti-Jewish hate crimes rose 9%, anti-black hate crimes went up by almost 8%, and anti-LGBT hate crimes increased by nearly 5%, while anti-Latino hate crimes remained steady. The latest FBI annual hate crime report shows a sharp spike in the number of hate crimes nationwide, with attacks against Muslims increasing the most sharply. In sheer numbers, anti-Jewish incidents (664) were higher in 2015, but the percentage increase was much higher for incidents involving Muslim victims. The bureau 's Uniform Crime Reporting Program data showed 5,850 hate crime incidents reported to police in 2015, a 6. "That is the highest number since 2001, when the al Qaeda attacks on New York and elsewhere drove the number to its highest ever level, 481 hate crimes," according to Mark Potok with the Southern Poverty Law
The only change was a small degree with 1.39% blacks in Monroe County. 2000 The population doubles in these two decades to 138,687 with 227.9 people per square mile. Now I am really curious about the racial demographics with 88.21% white citizens and 6.02% black. My current research shows a gap with unclarity about the remaining race of the other six percent of people. The growing population is able to navigate the public transpiration affectionately known as “The Pocono Pony” which is the Metro Transit bus
The Great Migration started in 1916 and lasted up to the 1970s. The Great Migration was the relocation of millions of African Americans from the south to the cities of the north. This had a huge impact on the urban life in the U.S. Many people at this time were looking for jobs to provide food and a place to live for their family. But because of housing tensions many African Americans had to create their own homes within cities.
For this week 's current events I an article read on the Huffington post that talks about the vast wealth gap between Black and White America. According to the post the gap got a bit smaller in the years leading upto the Great Recession but in the past 30 years has exploded as the black and Latino communities have been hit by foreclosures and job cuts.There 's a lot of reasons why there are enormous wealth gaps between minorities and whites in America. The most simple answer is, it takes money to make money. Part of the reason that there 's this enormous gap is because whites have long had higher wages and wealth to pass on from generation to generation. And it 's like a snowball - it gets bigger and bigger as it gets passed on, and the
The highest recorded population growth occurred in 1960, where the population grew by about 46.3 percent. In contrast, Philadelphia encountered a major population decrease by about 3.3 percent. This is due to the decline of industrialism in major cities as suburbs began to expand and attract people.
