From the NY Times

The Census Bureau released two important sets of data last week that have big implications for American politics — and that challenge some prevailing assumptions for both Democrats and Republicans. The first set of data lays out long-term demographic trends widely thought to favor Democrats: Hispanics, Asian-Americans and multiracial voters grew as a share of the electorate over the last two presidential races, and white voters — who historically tend to back the G.O.P. — fell to 71 percent in 2020 from 73 percent in 2016.

“M” is for Multiracial

2021-04-28T03:55:40+00:00April 28th, 2021|

The word Multiracial means relating to people of several or many races. Sometimes it is capitalized and sometimes it is not, depending on who you ask. Project RACE is now asking that like other race(s), it always be capitalized, just like Black, Latino, Asian, and Native American. Multiracial people are no less important. This change needs to be made in dictionaries, when used by the media, in private conversation, on racial and ethnic surveys, etc. Seeing Multiracial is becoming more frequent. It’s about time. I remember when the Associated Press [...]

Laine Hardy It’s Friday again, and if you love singing as much as I do, or at least enjoy listening to music, you may have watched an episode or two of the famous “American Idol”.  This season has a great pool of talent, but it got me thinking of the competition a few years ago.   Two years ago aMultiracial contestant, Laine Hardy, won American Idol!  Laine Hardy was born in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, to a mother of Asian descent and a white father.  He graduated from French Settlement High School [...]

The Jury is In

2021-04-21T22:44:03+00:00April 21st, 2021|

The Jury is In The jury in the Derek Cauvin trial reached a verdict yesterday. The Minneapolis police officer who killed George Floyd has been convicted of murder. We also got news that two of the panel of 12 jurors were multiracial. They represented 16 percent of the jury. That is a pretty high percentage of jurors. Our numbers are growing and will continue to grow. First, we want to thank the people who did self-identify as multiracial. Second, we wish to thank the media, which in most cases used [...]

It’s a Sad Famous Friday

Famous Friday: Daunte Wright This week’s Famous Friday will not celebrate a famous athlete, musician or politician. This week, I believe it’s appropriate that we take the time to remember and honor the memory of Daunte Wright. “My brother, just being in his presence uplifted my spirit,” Daunte’s sister Destiny said. “I love my brother so much and this is unbelievable, this is unreal...I feel him here, but in reality, he’s gone and I can’t never see him in person again. Can never feel my brother and give him a [...]

It’s Time to Look at Race Again

2021-04-11T22:05:54+00:00April 11th, 2021|

It’s been 24 years since the federal government looked at the racial classifications used by agencies like the U. S. Census Bureau. Whatever the government decides trickles down to businesses, schools, medical facilities, and others. It is important and it is not too late. Michael Van Cleve, a Project RACE member, and attorney has filed a lawsuit in Florida. He is suing the U.S. Commerce Department, the Office of Management and Budget (OMB), and the U.S. Census Bureau, concerning race and ethnicity data collection. If the lawsuit is successful, the [...]
