THE SHIFT IS REAL: HOW THE HISPANIC POPULATION IS BECOMING THE MAJORITY

the new nation

The United States is going through a massive cultural shift. And that shift is involving the Hispanic population becoming the majority in the future. That means that the country is starting to change especially the language in the country. And when that happens you’re talking a lot of people stand a chance of being upset. The reason being that we are used to a certain way of life in the United States. And now the Hispanic population is supposed to represent the change that so many are against. Now notice I said supposed to represent. There are many different groups who come from around the world, but the Hispanic population is so close. So they are seen as this reason for so many of our problems in this country, whether crime or employment.

the color construct deconstructed

America is not the only country in the Americas that have a history of colorism. But living here we are so closed off from a diverse experience. Yes, we have cities like New York and Miami, but for the most part America is rural. And when you are not connected to the world you judge based on outer. Problem is, the Latino population comes in different physical representations. Now, notice I switched and said Latino. When looking at the numbers we combine the two, so Puerto Ricans would be considered Latino, but Mexican Hispanic, yet they are combined. Once that happens you now have people who have a wide range of looks from European to African. And in America you will be excepted or rejected based on color. Only thing is, the numbers are growing in part as a result. We as Americans want to pin point a Hispanic/Latino man or woman based on the physical. And as a result this is one way they will actually become the majority.

the blame game

We need someone to blame for the reason our lives are in the position it is in. So the Mexican community have become the face for the problem. Too many Black people are underprivileged to blame and the Native American groups is far too small at this point. Now, the reality is that technology is changing the way our country operates. A lot of the jobs that the Hispanic are working are more physical jobs that a lot of people in America are not trying to work. So they are be targeted from an “idea” that jobs are being taken, not really being taken.

I am from Racine, Wisconsin where I was raised until I graduated high school back in the year 2006. That entire time growing up in my mother's house, I was a student athlete. My goal was to embark on a general business career or athletics. But injuries through sports stopped a sports path, so I decided upon business with a focus in marketing. While attending undergraduate school at University of Wisconsin-Parkside, I began to write screenplays in my senior year. At first it was for fun, but I quickly learned writing allow me to transfer negative energy into characters I created. This led to a decrease in depressing mood swings, which in turn boosted my quality of life. After undergraduate school in May of 2011, I move to New York City for graduate school. While pursuing my MBA, I continued to write screenplays, but always wanted to write novels as well. I finished graduate school back in the year 2014, but wrote screenplays until I began thinking of my first short film, first First Day Fears. While finishing my fifth feature length screenplay, I started to write my first novel this year. So far, I have finished my first short film and working on my next one (Freedomless Speech), and recently self published my first novel (The Boy Who Could Talk To God) and short stories book (Faheem Jackson Short Story Collection Volume 1). My feature length screenplays have been put on temporary hold to finish my short films and books, but I am making good progress on my sixth feature length screenplay. With year 2017 ending, I am currently writing my novel Precinct 86 and Faheem Jackson Short Story Collection Vol. 2. I have started teaching myself photography and will pursuing that by summer of 2018, along with my videography, podcast later on, and more research for my documentary.
