The inexorable demographic transformation of America is part of the context for the current dangerous turmoil in our politics.
For instance, TheAtlantic.com points out that less than half of Americans are now classified as white Christians. Less than 30% of the 18-29 age cohort identify themselves as white Christians.
Nevertheless, it’s true that almost three-quarters of all adults claim to be Christian (including Protestant, Catholic, Orthodox and other non-Protestant Christian faiths). So, the minority status of white Christians is largely driven by the increasing proportion of persons of color in the U. S. population.
Increasing diversity of the American citizenry is inevitable. Increasingly, ballot boxes will reflect this trend.
I think these changes will make American society richer in so many ways.
I look forward to the election of more folks who will champion the kind of government an increasingly diverse population needs and wants.
