Summary

With rising numbers of immigrants of color in the United States, sheer demographic change has long promised?falsely, it now seems?to solve the ?race problem.? Directly connecting the issues of race relations and immigrant incorporation, Beth Merenstein sheds light on what the changing contours of the US?s racial and ethnic makeup mean for our dearly held concept of ?equal opportunity for all.?
