The Snob Talks Diversity, Demographic Shifts on Tell Me More

Michel Martin

Tuesday on NPR's Tell Me More with Michel Martin it was all about shifting demographics and how the more things change in the "Browning of America" the panel thought the more things may stay the same. Featuring myself, Fernando Vila, an editor at Univision and Howard Dodson, an African American historian at Howard University, we talked about "Hispanic" being a made up term, that the Americas have been minority white before (during the time of Native Americans and African slaves) and that it's about your country of origin, assimilation and skin color that may determine who is an "other" and who's simply another type of white person.

Never mind those darn Baby Boomers. We talked about them too as the country both gets older AND younger and the complications that come with that.

Take a listen.
