Citizens but Not Americans
Race and Belonging among Latino Millennials
2 b/w figures
“Nilda Flores-González challenges scholars to move beyond current conceptualizations of race, the racial order, and national inclusion that do not match Latinos’ self-understandings as racialized subjects. Her theorization of the ‘racial middle’ is the most comprehensive and nuanced analysis of this concept to date. A major contribution to the literature on race in general and on Latinos in particular.”
—Eduardo Bonilla-Silva, Author of Racism without Racists
“Uses the poignant voices of Latino millennials to show how being born into the nation does not guarantee a sense of full social inclusion. I highly recommend this book for anyone interested in why belonging, race, and citizenship matter for Latinos and the larger society.”
—Leo Chavez, Author of The Latino Threat: Constructing Immigrants, Citizens, and the Nation
“A timely book that captures the racial world that Latino millennials experience in the United States. Required reading for people who want a glimpse of what the future is likely to hold for Latinos.”
—Rogelio Sáenz, Co-author of Latinos in the United States: Diversity and Change
“Professor Flores-González advances theoretical notions of race and belonging by proposing a hybrid framework of ethnoracial citizenship . . . contributes to our understanding of the millennial generation—a group that is often talked about but of which we have little scholarly knowledge.”
—Vilma Ortiz, Co-author of Generations of Exclusion: Mexican Americans, Assimilation, and Race
"Flores-González's research is thorough...This text could become a valuable resource for non-Latinos to gain a better understanding of fellow American citizens of Latino heritage, many of whom have been here for generations."
—Voices of Youth Advocates (VOYA)
