Chapter Three, of a sociology text edited by Kathleen Odell Korgen:

“…vividly describes the rich multiracial history of Latinos in the US. [Quiñones-Rosado] argues that Latinos now confront policies designed to re-racialize many into the White racial category. [He] demonstrates how this policy encourages the assimilation of many Latinos while deepening the socio-economic disadvantages of Latinos deemed “non-White” and compromising the cohesion of the Latino community in the US.”
