The population of those categorized as “minorities” today in America is increasing and is expected to be the “majority” by 2050. The voting trends of “minorities” are said to have swayed the results of last year’s presidential election. On the other hand, issues regarding marginalized “minorities” are still being raised. In this program Professor Kubo will talk about the future of American politics when the Anglo-Saxon population becomes the minority and the Republicans continue to have weak minority support, considering issues such as illegal immigrants, the rich-poor divide, immigrant integration and “home-grown” terrorism.
