The United States is Changing.

by Changing Face of America

   The United States is changing, and I would like to be one of the first non-hispanic writers to blog about and celebrate the trends that are happening all around us today. Hispanic people have become a huge influence on just about everything in our culture….the media, politics, the economy, the health care system, religion, food, comedy and language and this trend will of course continue well into our collective future. The U.S. population will soar to 438 million by 2050 and the Hispanic population will triple, according to projections released  by the Pew Research Center. Right now, Hispanics of Mexican, Puerto Rican, and Cuban descent  make up the nation’s largest Hispanic country-of-origin groups, says the the 2010 U.S. Census Bureau.

Mexicans currently represent 31,798,000 people, out of the current US population of 311,596,302.

Since these changes are systematically taking place, it is my goal to make information accessable, current and relevant about our changing nation so that shifts in power, cultural misunderstandings as well as language confusion can be directly and positively addressed. Since I am not Hispanic, I feel that my limited knowledge and my curiosity alone warrant further exploration on this current issue, and it is my hope that others out there may take an active interest in a positive understanding of these modern civil liberties issues as well as a collective support for who our nation has become.
