Introduction: Race Relations and Demographic Change

(p.1) 1 Introduction: Race Relations and Demographic Change
The Browning of the New South

Jennifer A. Jones

University of Chicago Press

This chapter introduces the issue of increasing demographic change in the U.S. South and considers how such change is impacting race relations and racial formation in the region. Prevailing views on race relations suggest that intergroup hostility and competition would be the norm, especially between blacks and Latinos. In Winston-Salem North Carolina, however, and throughout the region, blacks and Latinos are increasingly building coalitions and social ties. To examine this unexpected outcome, Chapter 1 looks to the race and immigration literatures to theorize how race is made and lived in the Winston-Salem context. This chapter lays out the mixed qualitative methods methodological approach and makes the overarching argument that how Latino newcomers are incorporated, and the dynamic nature of incorporation, both play an important role in shaping the racialization process.

Keywords:   race relations, demographic change, immigration, Latinos, U.S. South, politics, Winston-Salem, ethnography, qualitative methods
