The increase in the minority population will help with diversity in the United States but it will face some challenges. These challenges are going to be political, employment, health and social services. The United States will need to start addressing these challenges before 2050 or the country is not going to take full advantage of having such a diverse population. A diverse population does give society some benefits. The best benefit to diversity in the United States society is the increase to humanistic values.
The Jews and Indians in the two books have some common situations. They also have entirely different characteristics and responses to the majorities: the different self-identities and the separate Alvin 2 inhabitations or not. First, The Jews and Indians in the books are not the majorities and their presidents are not the same races as them so that it is difficult for them to announce their voice and opinion throughout the countries, and most people will not notice them.

Lastly, conclusions of the resulting observation. First Question: How Functionalism effects minorities in society? First understanding social stratification and functionalism. Functionalism makes the assumption that a society is based on the population taking on the roles necessary to balance the needs of the participants. In terms of social stratification, this suggests that there are various classes of people necessary to balance society (Giddens, 1990).
Filipino Latinos are created by a similar process of amalgamation but the pieces that the amalgamation is based on are different. Filipino Latinos contain elements of European culture and language in the form of Spanish (the colonial power in this part of the Pacific for key eras) and European culture as mediated through the United States. Filipino Latinos, of course, are a part of the story of a number of the most important Asian cultures in a way that parallels the ways in which African cultures have been threaded through Caribbean Latino culture. Both Caribbean and Filipino Latinos are mixtures of racial and cultural elements, but the specific elements that went into these mixtures. Filipino Latino culture has been much more about Asia than Africa.
Bobo asks how we can have milestone decisions like Brown V. Board, pass a civil rights act, a voting act, fair housing acts, and numerous acts of enforcement and amendments, including the pursuit of affirmative action policies and still continue to face a significant racial divide in America. Bobo offers these thoughts on the subject. In America we are witnessing the crystallization of a new racial ideology Bobo refers to as laissez-faire racism.

A Question of Identity We, no doubt are aware that America is a melting pot of ethnic, persuasion and diversion. Americans often classify people by these measures.

Hispanic are aware of big differences within the group especially among the Mexican American (largest group) and the Cuban American the latter being more conservative, to vote Republican, to become American citizen.
Pan-Asianism and Euro-American Colonialism By: ---- For: Professor Lam HIS483H5S March 2011 Despite certain similarities, there are broad variations in the conceptual framework of colonialism, both formally and structurally. Two of the primary modes of colonialist thought were the pan-Asian model espoused by Imperial Japan and the traditional European hegemonic model. While both these ideologies encompassed the common element of paternalism through socio-political domination of indigenous societies, the Japanese and Euro-American versions were motivated by distinct underlying ideological factors and included discernable differences in public administration, economic distribution, and cultural autonomy. Thus, it will be argued that both models were ideologically based on hierarchical ethnic constructs, yet the Japanese case was shaped largely through fear of European imperialism while the Euro-American cases were more grounded in the necessity of enhanced market access. In terms of practical comparisons, both models incorporated the need for resource and labour extraction, yet the Japanese model featured capital and human investments for mutual economic gain, whereas the Euro-American model was a relatively one-sided exchange of commodities for the sole benefit of the metropole, and the Japanese model was predicated on the assimilation of Japanese cultural norms in colonial environments, whereas the Euro-American model tended to avoid direct infringement on local tribal customs so long as military and political authority went unchallenged.
