Example text

Until the end of World War II, immigration to the United States was dominated by Europeans—German, Irish, Ital- Afro-Caribbean Immigrants 17 ian, and Polish immigrants who would eventually become the white ethnics of America’s melting pot ideology. Today’s immigrants, in contrast, hail predominantly from Asia, Latin America, and the Caribbean. These three regions alone account for 85 percent of all immigration to the United States since 1965 (Passel and Edmonston 1994). Taken together, these dizzying demographic shifts and the accompanying matrix of racial and ethnic divisions present some intriguing, and perhaps nettlesome, normative and empirical questions for social scientists to ponder.

All in all, the African American experience is an obvious case of differential political incorporation, contrasting starkly with the white ethnic experience and contravening the predictions of the pluralist model. Scholars of black political life generally agree that severe discrimination and the continuing significance of race account for the anomalous political trajectory of African Americans. 16 Other researchers have come to share this view. Peterson (1981, 158–159), for example, asserts, Color changes the character of ethnic politics.

Most observers agree that African Americans’ racial difference and the deeply entrenched racist structures of American society have severely complicated their political incorporation. As non-Whites, the 18 reuel rogers new immigrants may encounter similar barriers and therefore, follow the same tortuous path as African Americans. Yet, here too, the historical parallels are not complete. While many of the new immigrants share nonwhite status with African Americans, they, like earlier generations of European white ethnics, are voluntary immigrants to America.
