Walls and Bridges: Demographics

Walls and Bridges: Demographics

59 min

The U.S. is becoming more diverse each year. Experts expect that minority populations will make up a majority in America sometime around the middle of the century. Here in California, Latinos became the largest ethnic group in the state back in 2014. But those shifting demographics don’t necessarily mean more inclusive attitudes and policies. In fact, recent research finds that demographic changes can stoke fear and uncertainty in some voters and potentially increase racial bias in voting. In this special Walls and Bridges conversation, KQED's Tonya Mosley talks with a panel of experts about how shifting demographics affect society, culture, politics and issues surrounding race.

Guests:
Carvell Wallace, writer, podcaster & host of "Closer Than They Appear"
G Cristina Mora, professor of Sociology at UC Berkeley & author of "Making Hispanics"
Andrew Lam, author of "East Eats West: Writing in Two Hemispheres" & co-founder of New America Media

This conversation was recorded on April 25, 2018, at Ohlone College in Fremont.
