The CBS Ear­ly Show inter­views Lau­ra Speer, asso­ciate direc­tor for pol­i­cy reform and advo­ca­cy and KIDS COUNT nation­al coor­di­na­tor, on the sweep­ing change in the country’s race com­po­si­tion, with more than half of the chil­dren under age two being minori­ties. Speer com­ments that Amer­i­cans will have to rec­og­nize that racial and eth­nic minori­ties will become the U.S. major­i­ty by mid-cen­tu­ry and that the 1950s Ozzie and Har­ri­et” stereo­typ­i­cal fam­i­ly has vanished.
