"Richard Rodriguez argues that America has been brown from its inception... At the core of the book is an assessment of the meaning of Hispanics to the life of America. Reflecting upon the demographic profile of our country, Rodriguez observes that Hispanics are becoming Americanized at the same rate that the United States is becoming Latinized. Hispanics are coloring an American identity that traditionally has chosen to describe itself as black and white."--dj blurb.
