Who is White? : Latinos, Asians and the New Black/nonblack Divide
Yancey marshals compelling evidence to show that the definition of who is ""white"" is changing rapidly, with nonblack minorities accepting the perspectives of the current white majority group and, in turn, being increasingly assimilated. In contrast, African Americans continue to experience high levels of alienation. To understand the racial reality in the United States, Yancey demonstrates, it is essential to discard the traditional white/nonwhite dichotomy and to explore the implications of the changing color of whiteness.
