Minnesotans! Get on that minority thing. You need more blacks, browns and yellows. You're liberals don't like white folks.
"Asians are the fastest-growing ethnic group in Minnesota, having increased by an estimated 3.4 percent between 2011 and 2012, newly released data from the U.S. Census Bureau shows.
The increase of 7,750 Asian residents in a single year is driven mostly by births to people who were already in Minnesota, though a wave of immigrants from India has also contributed to the increase, State Demographer Susan Brower said Wednesday. Many of those immigrants have come to Minnesota for high-tech jobs.
“Hmong are still the largest [Asian] group, now followed by Asian Indians, who are moving especially to the eastern and western suburbs,” Brower said.
The annual population estimates show a Minnesota that is less racially diverse than the country overall but that has minority groups that are growing at a faster clip than the national average.
About 17 percent of Minnesota’s residents are minority, compared with more than 30 percent for the nation as a whole. From 2011 to 2012, the state’s black population grew by 2.7 percent, while the Hispanic population increased by 2.5 percent. But blacks remain the state’s largest minority group, followed by Hispanics, Asians and American Indians."
