Race Policy and Multiracial Americans

This concluding chapter explains why race policies are a vital part of efforts to promote racial justice. At the most basic level, race policies that require keeping race-based data are invaluable resources in the fight for racial justice. Without such policies, we would not be able to prove or, in some cases, even notice patterns of racial discrimination. If we are not aware of such patterns, we cannot address them. As the chapters in this book demonstrate, more Americans than ever before now identify with more than one race, and their numbers will continue to grow rapidly. We need race policies that will help us better understand the various multiracial populations and measure and address the racial discrimination they face. It is time for race policy in the U.S. to catch up to the nation’s new demographics and work for a racially just society for all.
