Census 2020 Results Show Jump in Latino and Mixed-Race Americans



Sonali Kolhatkar speaks with Dr. Manuel Pastor, Director of USC's Equity Research Institute.


The United States 2020 Census results are starting to be published, delayed by months due to the pandemic, and marred by the Trump Administration’s attempts to undermine the counting of diverse populations. White Americans remain the majority of the population by far. However, the Census showed that for the first time ever, the White population shrank over the past 10 years. Latino or Hispanic populations have grown most rapidly, followed by mixed race Americans, and then by Asians. Native Americans and Alaska natives also saw a surprising rate of growth. There was a marked decline in the under-18 population.

Rising Up with Sonali is a radio and television show that brings progressive news coverage rooted in gender and racial justice to a wide audience. Rising Up With Sonali was built on the foundation of Sonali Kolhatkar's earlier show, Uprising, which became the longest-running drive-time radio show on KPFK in Los Angeles hosted by a woman. RUS airs on Free Speech TV every weekday.
