America is changing. Bigoted slurs, immigration bans and racist rallies can't change that

From the moment the United States was born, it has been an exercise in transformation, a nation that every day welcomes new citizens -- by birth and by oath -- to take part in this grand experiment.
Conceived by a band of wealthy, white men who demanded freedom from Great Britain, America has developed into a multicultural, multiethnic community. And even as racist rallies, travel bans and bigoted slurs remain part of our cultural landscape, our transformation rolls on.
By 2065, non-Hispanic whites will only make up 46% of the population -- and no one racial or ethnic group will comprise a majority, experts project. Hispanics will be 24% of the population; Asians will be 14%; blacks will be 13%. Asians will also supplant Hispanics for the largest share of the foreign-born population, experts expect.
