Earl Lewis recently spoke to MLive about the growing number of participants identifying as ‘multiracial’ in the 2020 Census. 

“In a lot of ways, the current Census data are catching up with human behavior that went unnoticed in previous censuses,” Lewis said. “In the United States setting, those broader categories of race took hold to almost in accord with the founding of the nation. It has had a devastating effect for some and a great benefit to others.”
