    Is multiculturalism on the rise or the decline? Where in the world has it succeeded and where has it run into obstacles?

    Emily Hubbell replied 12th Jul '15:

    From an American perspective:

    Diversity and multiculturalism is on the rise. Minorities make up 37% of the U.S. population, and that number is expected to be more than 50% by 2020.

    But that doesn't mean multiculturalism is accepted by mainstream society. Unfortunately, America's history of racial injustice still lives on, as you can see in media rhetoric (especially during President Obams's campaigns and two terms in office), law (particularly the criminal justice system — incarceration rates/decisions in key trials; and of course the recent string of police brutality against minorities) and the subconscious views of many Americans.

    Another indicator that multiculturalism hasn't truly been accepted by U.S. society is the makeup of Congress. From a recent Washington Post article: "Just 5 percent of candidates are black, compared to their 12 percent share of the population, and just 6 percent of candidates are Hispanic, even as the fast-growing population is now 15 percent of the United States. Members of Congress are more than 80 percent male, about 80 percent white and about 60 years old, on average." Women and minorities are underrepresented in office, which is a crucial barrier to a multicultural society.

    Why do you believe certain people are more likely to be HEARD?. What is it that these people have, over others?.

    Emily Hubbell replied 13th Jan '15:

    Often, the ability to be heard comes down to access to resources (power, money, etc). Every day, people with amazing stories and perspectives get lost in the sea of information and content. It takes either a strong understanding of new media (social media, video content, content marketing) or connections (celebrity, power-holders, a large, influential network or media publication) to increase visibility for your perspective. With new media, the most important resource is no longer monetary, but the ability to develop content across numerous verticals (blogging, social media, video, podcasts and beyond). This is what helps you reach large audiences.
