Reaching minorities by finding common ground

Teacher/Instructor: Dr. Ming Wang

Topic: Reaching minorities by finding common ground


Christian conservative movement is losing ground, in recruiting the rapidly growing part of our population, i.e., minorities!

-          20% of U.S. population are Hispanic Americans (voting 8:2 progressive);

-          18% of U.S. population are African Americans (9:1);

-          6% of U.S. population are Asian Americans (7:3).

-          The above 3 minorities are already 44% of U.S. population today, and is projected to become the majority, in 10-15 years, for the first time in U.S. history!

-          Over 40% of progressives are minorities;

-          Less than 10% of conservatives are minorities.

 

-          Medium age of whites = 58

-          Asians = 29

-          African Americans = 27

-          Hispanic Americans = 11

 

This group discussion forum focuses on two questions:

 

1. WHAT are the most important issues, for Latino Americans, African Americans, and Asian Americans?

2. HOW could we better reach out to them, to find common ground and build relationship?

 

 

Dr. Ming Wang

As a teenager, Ming fought valiantly in China’s Cultural Revolution – during which millions of innocent youth were deported to remote areas to face a life sentence of hard labor and poverty. He came to America with only $50 and earned two doctorate degrees, one in laser physics and one in medicine, and graduated with the highest honors from Harvard Medical School and MIT.

Wang Foundation for Sight Restoration has helped patients from over 40 states in the U.S. and 55 countries, with all sight restoration surgeries performed free-of-charge. Dr. Wang was named the Kiwanis Nashvillian of the Year for his lifelong dedication to help blind orphaned children from around the world.
