Mixed Race: Looking Back to the Beginning

Bookmark and Share

I’ll admit that I wasn’t thrilled when I learned that I would be covering people who identify as mixed race for News21. I had spent my spring semester in my Carnegie Seminar examining the voting behaviors of native and foreign-born Latinos. I was bit disheartened to learn that I had been assigned to a new topic that I knew very little about.

Having been on a press trip to Jordan for the first week, I got back to find out I was assigned to work with Kimberly, Shauna and Chris. According to a recent Census estimates, multiracial Americans are the fastest growing demographic in the country. These estimates, which were released in May, led to a switch in focus for some of the Maryland fellows. I was part of this newly formed group.
