Hindus and Muslims
Dr. Johnson
Then what is the third type of diversity in the US? The third is religious diversity. Immigration from India, Pakistan, and the Middle East brought radically increased numbers of Hindus and Muslims to the US. And Chinese, Vietnamese, Japanese and other Asian immigrants increased the numbers of Buddhists. Oh, I see. But the point is that these religions didn't settle everywhere. They settled mainly in California, and major northeastern and mid-western cities, such as New York, Philadelphia, Chicago and Minneapolis. From 1990 to 2000, the number of Muslims in New York City grew from 600,000 to nearly 1 million. In the Los Angeles area, there are now more than 300 Buddhist temples. So we see that many parts of the US are truly becoming more diverse while at the same time others are essentially remaining the same in terms of race, age and religion. Yes, that is true. OK. Dr. Johnson, thank you very much for coming on the show and talking to us. My pleasure.
