Black: 34.8 million
Hispanic: 31.3 million

American Indian and Alaska Native: 2.3 million
Gay and Lesbian: (estimated at) 15 million

According to a 2003 Gallup study in the Congressional Record, 88 percent of Americans believe that gays and lesbians should have equal rights in the workplace. It is hoped that this percentage would apply to all minority groups and indicates that most Americans believe in equal rights and the inherent value of diversity.
