18.5% of Americans are Hispanics or Latinos. United States Census Bureau (211) compares minorities to other racial group. Hispanics are culturally significant because they live a socialist life which emphasizes the importance of relationships. The collective heritage is essential to this group’s identity, purpose and fulfillment. It is easy for these people to realize their potential through culture and family (Ortiz 2020). Hispanics as well Latinos can gain love, respect and acceptance from their family members. Latinos, and Hispanics are able to rely on the community for support and nourishment. Traditional principles supporting this group include personalismo and simpatia.
Hispanics and Latinos have a social structure that encourages social connections and allows for the expression of joy, respect, and connection through gatherings. Acevedo et al. According to Acevedo and colleagues (2020), convivial socialization outperforms other kinds of relationships, because it encourages positive feelings. East Asians tend to be more calm and controlled than European Americans who value emotional dependence. Simpata, which fosters good and cordial relationships, is the central point for social interactions.
For every minority group, social mobility is a crucial criteria. The length of the stay was a key factor in the rise in social mobility for Latinos and Hispanics. Conversely, a lower level of education was linked to less social mobility. Martinez and Huerta, 2020 state that students are less likely to succeed in life due to the government education system. Latino men face intense pressure when it comes to choosing between working and social mobility. Hispanics and Latinos overwhelmingly live in cities. This means that poverty could be a problem for future generations. Chicanos are prevented from climbing up the socioeconomic ladder by their inability to attain higher education.
Social mobility is possible only if there are higher education institutions. Educational opportunities are essential for ensuring equality for everyone in society. Diaz and colleagues. Diaz et al. (2021) stated that by 2019, 18% of Americans were Latinos. It was ranked as the second largest racial group and it has grown steadily. Hispanics have seen a rapid increase in South America’s population over the past decade. The majority of Hispanic members average 30 years. Education is the key to social mobility. Yet, just 10% STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics) undergraduates were Latinos in 2016. The proportion of Latinos in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) undergraduates was just seven percent in 2006, compared to 5-6% 20 years earlier. Diaz et. al. 2021), and show the proportion of different ethnic groups participating in STEM programs.
