Does race matter? Having witnessed the civil rights movement and changes in immigration laws, we continue to ask ourselves this complex question. In the United States, racial status and identity has historically been defined by the White majority. Asian Americans: From Racial Category to Multiple Identities shows that race continues to be a major organizing principle in the US. Using census data on 'Blacks,' 'White Ethnics,' and 'Nonblack Minorities,' Lott deconstructs widely accepted majority/minority classifications to reveal the multiplicity of identities surrounding each group.
