As of 2010, with the total population of the United States at 310.2 million individuals, White Non-Hispanic Americans are 64.7 percent of the United States population. While the second largest racial group in America is Hispanics with 16 percent of the population. According to the trends, the population is estimated to be at about 439 million in the year 2050. That's quite a rise in the population in the next 40 years (129 million) and who knows the impact it will have on our economy and job availability. It is also estimated that White Non-Hispanic Americans will be less than half the population at this point with 46.3 percent of the population being that race.
In addition to this, blacks and Hispanics are more likely to be unemployed than whites and Asians. Black unemployment rate is 16, Hispanic's is 11, whites is 8 and Asians is 7. This indicates that the American dream has not been achieved by all ethnic
Even within the same cities, "murder rate among black teens in Washington, D.C., is twenty-five times higher than that of white teens living a few Metro stops away." There are many facts that prove that the media cannot be the issue in this situation. Also, it isn't even children being violent most of the time. Three-Fourths of murdered kids are not murdered by children, but by adults. Also, the suicide rate of black teens is almost the same rate as black adults.
When a topic such as this one has a broad amount of variables, it is impossible to simply link these problems to the wealth of a family and race. In the article, “American Dream Not American Reality”, author Jonathan Turley states, “People from lower income family or different race than white tent to fail on reaching their American Dream and face the reality because they have lack of economic support from the family”. This is the simple statement that shows people from poor family will result in failure. What Turley must understand is that it can be extremely difficult for people from low income family to achieve their American Dream without any education and economic support. They must spend more time to study and work as a full time to pay for their school fees.
Could this be the reason there are so fewer homeless children in Connecticut? I think they still have some work to do on providing food and educational resources to the poor families in their state, but they did earn the number 1 ranking. Texas, on the other hand, has a huge problem on their hands and, as of the date of this report, has no plan in place to reduce their number of homeless children and families. Their inadequate planning and lack of available shelter space is likely only making their problem worse. From the research, I think it is also fair to say that Texas has an immigration issue as 46 percent of their homeless children are Hispanic, a larger number than any other state in America.
Customers and market research did not show a great desire for the new innovation or device, e.g. 8 inch disk drive customers had little desire for a smaller form factor device with a higher price.

Black people, and to a lesser extent Asians are over represented in the sample. For example black people make up just 12.8% of the population, but 11% of the prison population and Asians make up 4.7% of the population, but 6% of the prison population. By contrast, white people are under-represented at all stages of the criminal justice process. The Ministry of Justice states that members of the black communities are seven times more likely than white people to be stopped and searched , three and a half times more likely to be arrested, and five times more like to be sent to prison.
Think about issues that are affecting individuals, identified groups of young people and young people across the community.

I Have a Dream speech it gave rise to many hopes and opportunities that allowed African Americans gain their rights and their position in society. Although we do not see racism to its fullest nowadays, we still see some sorts of prejudice amongst African Americans. In certain situations they are denied employment solely because the color of their skin or the fact that they are not qualified with certain perquisites, which most of the time are associated with the level of education and experiences obtained. Although at the same time we see successful African Americans that have excelled and become prosperous, they are only a small fragment of the African American community. But as a result of our history African Americans are frown upon and look as inferiors that as a result prevent them from achieving any sort of economical or social gain in our
