Ten Ways to Fight Hate
As the 21st Century began, New York City's million-student school system reported enrollment that was 38 percent black, 35 percent Hispanic, 19 percent white and 7.9 percent Asian/Pacific Islanders.

By the middle of the 21st Century, we will be, in effect, a country of minorities.
