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?
