Achieving a More Integrated America
Dissent, Summer 2010, v57, #3, pp57-61
"Despite the black family in the White House, this seems an odd moment to think about the possibilities for minority mobility and ethno-racial integration. [...] The situation of minority children is especially dire. About one in three black and Hispanic children live below the poverty line. This is probably an underestimate, because the official poverty line is not a realistic threshold. The statistics are dismal: the heaviest burdens of our staggering income inequalities continue to be borne by minorities."
