Republicans can crow about diversity all they want. But to the extent that it exists at all, it’s just window-dressing.
A record number of women, Latinos, Asian Americans, and gays and lesbians make history and make a difference.
To win the White House, any candidate will need women, blacks, Latinos, Asian-Americans, middle- and working-class people, gays and other people the Republican Party has dismissed for far too long.
Amid all of this change, there is unfounded fear and outright hatred.
Because of redistricting and population trends, some African-American politicians may lose their seats to Latino challengers this year. This could lead to increased friction between the groups, so positive leadership will be necessary to limit this risk.
Our diversity strengthens the nation. We are facing increased global competition, and we’re lucky to have so many children who are fluent in other languages and well versed in other cultures.
