While it is distasteful to categorize people purely by their ethnicity, it is nonetheless useful to understand global trends and in particular, the influx of students into the U.S. from Asian and Hispanic cultures.
In fact, it is predicted that in 2020, Hispanic and Asian students will make up nearly half the population in U.S. Colleges. To me, the ethnicity of a person matters less than their nationality. Americans are Americans, whether the have Asian or Hispanic or European or Arabic roots.
