Overview

Current predictions about the inevitability of whites becoming a minority in the United States are wrong, says Yancey (sociology, U. of North Texas), because they ignore the fact that definitions of who are "white" change through time. Whites are likely to remain majority because many of those who are now defined as non-white are likely to inter- marry, assimilate, and accept a majority culture that accepts "white" superiority. This option of gaining "whiteness" will not be open to African Americans, who will continue to occupy the lowest rung in society. Annotation (c)2003 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
