How has immigration shaped race relations?
Since 1965, the United States has experienced transformative levels of immigration and the expanded presence of groups such as Latinos and Asian Americans. I examine the distinct forms of stereotyping and prejudice that these racial and ethnic minority groups face on the basis of their perceived foreignness.
How do Whites respond to growing diversity?
As the United States becomes increasingly racially diverse, Whites are presented with more opportunities for intergroup contact and exposure in their schools, workplaces, and local communities. I examine the ways in which Whites may avoid and react negatively to this diversity, as well as the ways in which they may attempt to accommodate and embrace diversity.
