    The New York Times is reporting that the first comprehensive accounting of multiracial Americans since statistics were first collected about them in 2000 shows that the nation's mixed-race population is growing far more quickly than many demographers had estimated, particularly in the South and parts of the Midwest. The analysis is from data collected from the 2000 and 2010 censuses.

    The Census Bureau analyzed data from 42 states and found that the mixed-race population doubled in North Carolina. In Georgia, it expanded by more than 80 percent, and by nearly as much in Kentucky and Tennessee. Mississippi's mixed-race population is up 70 percent. In Indiana, Iowa and South Dakota, the multiracial population increased by about 70 percent.

    Census officials were expecting a national multiracial growth rate of about 35 percent since 2000, when 7 million people -- 2.4 percent of the population -- chose more than one race. Officials have not yet announced a national growth rate, but it seems sure to be closer to 50 percent.

    Ironically, in states like California, Hawaii and Oklahoma, where people of mixed race already made up a significant percentage of the total, the increases were smaller than in places like Mississippi, where there were far fewer "mixed-race" people before the most recent census.

    We find it interesting that researchers continue to be mystified by so-called mixed-race populations, since most Americans, especially black Americans, are already of mixed race. Blacks, whites and Natives have been "mixing" in the South for a few hundred years now. We suppose the wow factor is that people are able to self-identify as mixed race and can openly choose and marry partners of "different" races. The findings are reflecting what we've already known, especially in the South: Love has no color, and we're all related anyway.

    "We got to tell all those people [who] got problems with us...., because the infusion of white blood... Come in the house and work for the better interest in liberation of all us [afrikan people], or go to your [white] fathers house and see if he'll let you in. ...But if you gonna stay among us, we expect you [to] fight for our liberation..., or leave us alone. Get in the house and stay, or get out of the house and stay. There's a billion of us on the face of the earth. We can afford to lose a few people. A few people confused about their color problem -who they are gonna be loyal to... Go'head and be loyal to the other people... Remember now, if we're in a battle and see you in our gun site, we not gonna hold back the [trigger] finger because its you"

    There was an old man that walked with a limp and was miserable, all the time

    but was relieved of his misery when he saw his sister walk with a limp

    Mixed (United Kingdom ethnicity category)

    Mixed is an ethnicity category included in the 2001 United Kingdom Census.

    Colloquially it refers to British citizens or residents whose parents are of two or more different races or ethnic backgrounds. Mixed-race people are the fastest growing ethnic group in the UK.

    [edit] Statistics
    In the 2001 census, 677,177 classified themselves as of mixed race, making up 1.2 per cent of the UK population.[2] Office for National Statistics estimates suggest that 870,000 mixed race people were resident in England (as opposed to the whole of the UK) as of mid-2007, compared to 654,000 at mid-2001.[3] It has been estimated that, by 2020, 1.24 million people in the UK will be of mixed race.[4]

    3.5 per cent of all births in England and Wales in 2005 were mixed race babies, with 0.9 per cent being Mixed White and Black Caribbean, 0.5 per cent White and Black African, 0.8 per cent White and Asian, and 1.3 per cent any other mixed background.[5]

    Mixed-race people are the fastest growing ethnic minority group (defined according to the National Statistics classification) in the UK and are predicted to be the largest minority group by 2020.[6]

    I'm not sure that I follow and I fail to see how that relates to the proposal for it is not a demand.

    the heart breaking thing about Dr Clarke and his good friend Malik Shabbaz, is that both had daughters, that had relationships with white men

    I know of clarke's daugther, but not of shabbaz's.

    What is the human experience if there is no
    contradiction(s)?

    In the end one has to take a
    stand for something, greater than
    themselves and their personal situation
    in spite of conflicting circumstances.

    "In a revolution you've got no friends and you've got
    no relatives. You've got the people on your side and
    the ones not on your side. If blood don't see fit to
    come on your side, then shame on blood. That's what
    it means to be in a revolution." -j.h.c.

    Oh please brother where is your, and your thanker's solution?

    this rhetoric ring around the rosy has gone on in the archives going back for 6 years like folks who enjoy talking about cancer as long as no one talks about a cure

    OK here is a problem

    so where is the discussion of any solution????????????????????

    Folks crying fire all the time, as though without any knowledge of what H2 O is or what a fire extinguisher even looks like
    or basic emergency preparedness, until the fire department comes,
    to get folks to safety!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Query:

    Why did you respond to me in such a 'tone'?

    I have a feeling that you've misinterpreted my reply
    as rebuttal.
