Let’s proceed to the list of the richest most powerful ethnic groups in America. Insider Monkey has recently published an interesting article about it. According to the United States Census Bureau, 17.8% of the entire population is Hispanic/Latino, which is the largest ethnic minority, while Black or African American population constitutes about 13.3%. According to the same report, 2.6% of the entire population is of two or more races. The United States Consensus defines white people as those who have origins in any of the original people from Europe, the Middle East or North Africa (Irish, German, Italian, Polish, Lebanese, etc.). Black or African Americans are those who have origins in any of the native people of Sub-Saharan Africa while Asian American are those with origins in any of the original peoples of Far East, North Asia, Southeast Asia, and the India subcontinent.
Now without a further ado let’s see what Insider Monkey has investigated for us. We have picked three of the richest most powerful ethnic groups in America from their list.
The first one is Australian American. Americans with Australian ancestry are also on the list of the richest and most powerful ethnic groups. Australians started migrating to the U.S. in the 1850s during the California Golden Rush. They are not to be confused with American Australians (Australian citizens with American ancestry). According to an essay, most Australians and New Zealanders who came to America settled around San Francisco and Los Angeles. The second group is Filipino American. According to an earlier report of the Census, there were about 3.4 million Filipino Americans in the United States in 2010, and the number includes those who were part Filipino (multiracial Americans). The Filipino American ethnic group is among the richest in America, according to the report. At last, but not least we are mentioning Jewish American. Jewish Americans are on the list of richest most powerful ethnic groups in America as well, considering the fact that many Jews believe that being a Jew is actually related to ancestry and not religion, according to this study. It’s no secret that 11.6% of the world’s billionaires are Jews. So, it’s no wonder some consider them as the most powerful ethnic group in the world as well as the richest ethnic group in the world. But according to the data we found, Jewish Americans are among the richest, most powerful ethnic groups in the United States as well.
