By 2040, half of all Americans will be "minorities,"



Nat Irvin II : Sociologist
Minorities will rule: By 2040, half of all Americans will be "minorities," says Nat Irvin II of Wake Forest University. Within the next few decades, he predicts, the United States will elect an African-American female president and will see the appointments of minorities to powerful positions such as Chief Justice and Federal Reserve chair.

In 2008, President Barack Obama became the first African American president.
