AMERICA IN 2009 & AMERICA BY 2050
AMERICA IN 2009 AND AMERICA BY 2050
Compiled with a brief commentary by Uriah J. Fields
The so-called minority or non-white population of the United States is projected to exceed 50 percent by 2050. Based oncthe data collected by the U.S. Census Bureau, this is a statistical portrait of Americns age 50 years of age and older. Also presented is the compiler's brief commentary that focuses on the inequity and disparity experienced by African Americans.
The Population Change 50 and Older Americans Today
*White* Live Alone
Education High school diploma Own a home
Bachelor's degee Poverty rate
Finances: Median household income
Despite the data and apparent trends, what is projected to be true in 2050 may not be true, just as what was predicted 40 or 50 years ago to be true today has proven to be overwhelmingly wrong, including experts' prediction that today the United States would be the world's world empire.
What is worth noting about the facts about today is the STATE OF AFRICAN AMERICANS, when compared to other Americans, particularly with Hispanics, the group that is second from the bottom. Blacks are at the bottom. The poverty rate: Blacks 18% and Hispanics 15%.
Although 72% of Blacks have high school diplomas compared with 52% of Hispanics and 15% of Blacks have bachelor's degrees compared with 11% of Hispanics, the Hispanics' finances (median household income) is $45,000 (13% more) compared to $39,200 for Blacks. Moreover, many Hispanics do not speak English. One may ask, How important is education? However, the more relevant question is, How important is race in America? The facts speak for themselves. The legacy of slavery is a present "tour de force" in America. The incomes for Whites is $56,100 and Asians $72,500. These two groups are far better off than Hispanics and Blacks.
