Questioning the Narrative of the Majority-Minority Society

“The argument of this book,” writes Richard Alba, “is not that whites will retain a numerical majority status, although I do not rule out such a possibility, but rather that mainstream expansion, which brings about a melding involving many whites, non-whites, and Hispanics, holds out the prospect of a new kind of societal majority.”
