Minnesota's minority population growing rapidlyby Cathy Wurzer, Minnesota Public Radio
New numbers from the U.S. Census bureau show a growing racial divide in Minnesota's population. The new estimates show the population of younger Minnesotans from minority groups is booming. For example in Hennepin County, the number of Hispanic kids under five years old is growing 15 times faster than the rate for white kids. Meanwhile, the state's population of retired people remains overwhelmingly white. Morning Edition host Cathy Wurzer spoke with State Demographer Tom Gillaspy.
