Minority Report

A reader on our majority-minority future:

See George Yancey's book Who Is White?: Latinos, Asians, and the New Black/Nonblack Divide. This sparked a host of articles when it came out in 2005; the meme has been fairly present among demographers and academic sociologists.

The problem (or opportunity for the Steve Sailers of the world), is that the data are most suggestive of the persistence of out-group reactions to blacks rather than everyone feeling groovy about South Asians, Hispanics, and other minorities. that is - the dominant thread here is not that you and I are largely considered white, it's that Barack Obama never will be (except by Cornel West).

This sounds somewhat depressingly plausible to me -- I'll have to read the book.
