Europe is now reaping the consequences from years of unchecked immigration policies and the U.S. is now beginning to see the same unfortunate outcomes that are plaguing western Europe. Idealistic notions of "sameness" and equality (except under the law) are both naive and dangerous. In the end, everybody loses.
Many questions arise: will the identity chosen by these peoples conform to the dominant culture they are raised in? Or will skin color factor more? Then the serious question arises: identity confusion or identity limbo. Not quite this, but not quite that. Obviously some will form their own identity like Barack Obama (he is essentially an "African-American" even if his roots aren't based out of American slavery) but others will grow up and be not quite sure of this heritage. This isn't revolutionary science as many African-Americans aren't sure which region of Africa they are from and thus are not affiliated with any specific African identities unlike many white Americans (Italian, Irish, etc Americans). Instead they choose Africa over a certain African ethnic group from West Africa or Central Africa.
According to the Census interracial marriages are increasing every year. It isn't a substantial majority but it will consume a significant percentage of our population in the future. For example, per wikipedia, 14% of all marriages in America were mixed (ethnic and race). The results will be inconclusive. Yet we must consider most will spawn bicultural and biracial children. That's 1 in 10 marriages today. By 2020 it could be 1 in 8. By 2040 it could be 1 in 5. As America becomes less white, and more hispanics come in the odds of interracial marriages increase.
Will this strengthen American identity by stripping these people of specific identities (no longer white, black, latino, or asian but American)? Or, will it create a disillusioned demographic group that doesn't know their own heritage that could potentially be disassociated from the other more numerous ethnic groups? Not quite black, not quite hispanic, not quite white, but somewhere in between and thus not apart of any group.
It doesn't understate Pat's argument at all. Hardly. But I wish it was addressed with detail and the possible consequences both positive and negative. In fact it could be completely erroneous to America's future altogether. Even then I wish it was factored in somewhere.
As to Pat's book: outstanding literature.
