Question and answer
Q: Trends in immigration will continue to shape the demographics of the United States. What will the U.S. population look like in the year 2050? Why do you think so?
A: Over the next fifty years, the population of the United States is expected to grow by nearly 50 percent, from about 275 million in the year 2000 to an estimated 394 million people in 2050. U.S. [ population growth is influenced by immigration and emigration rates, as well as by birth and death rates. Immigration will play the largest role in the growth of the United States through mid-century.1
Immigration trends tell us to expect 820,000 immigrants to arrive annually in the United States. Two out of three will be working age upon their arrival. By 2050, we expect immigration to have increased the U.S. population by 80 million people. Fully two-thirds of the projected U.S. pop-ulation increase will be due to net immigration.2 In addition to immigration, the other key determinants of the U.S. population size will be birth and death rates. Particularly important to the American labor force is the large number of people born after World War II, from 1946 to 1964. This baby-boom generation- which has been a major force in the labor market for the past 20 years- has now reached its prime working years and makes up about 47 percent of the workforce.3 The youngest baby boomers, just reaching 35 years of age, will continue to participate in the workforce for many years. As this population ages, the median age of the workforce will rise. Between 2011 and 2029, the baby boomers will be reaching the traditional retirement age of 65. Their retirements will dramatically affect the workforce of the future. Not only will the demo-graphic profile of the workforce change considerably, including a rise in the number of people with disabilities, but millions of Americans will be faced with balancing work and family, particularly the care of elderly parents. - - - ]

User: How can we foster a climate of acceptance and cultural pluralism in the United States?

User: In what ways does the media perpetuate stereotyping and prejudice? Provide examples to support your assertion.

Weegy: The media contribute to the perpetuation of stereotypes and prejudice in America as they show viewers either from the television , newspaper etc things in certain ways to make them think as a stereotyped or prejudice person, [ for example in the media they represent Muslims all as threats and bad people due to the American government 'claiming' that Muslims caused the destruction of peoples lives in the bombing of the world trade centre in new york. Due to this many people have now changed their views on Muslim people and mainly think of them as terrorists. Nearly everyday in the media they also represent Black people normally Black males as criminals and drug dealers in newspapers everyday the media represent people of colour in negative ways , this causes tensions between racial groups and causes people who are weak to stereotype and be prejudice to other ethnic groups.

User: In what ways does the media help foster appreciation for diversity? Provide examples to support your assertion.

Weegy: If anything, I think media first encourages tolerance of diversity (by introducing us to types of people we may not normally encounter) and then we are later led to a greater appreciation of said diversity. [ [ Also, by learning about diverse cultures (i.e. their cuisine, land, customs, etc) we may find a common ground or a point which we may find fascinating, leading to our appreciation of that culture. ]
