The Browning of the New South

Chapter 4 details the racialization of Mexicans in Winston-Salem after 2005. Latinos in the region experienced a sudden shift that altered their interpretation of their position within the racial hierarchy. Because Mexicans were aware of the discrimination faced by blacks in the region and saw that their interactions with blacks and whites were divergent, they came to interpret their discrimination experiences as akin to those of blacks. This led to a sense of Latino identity that was distinctly racialized. Chapter 4 emphasizes the relational nature of racial formation and details the Latino racialization and resulting identity formation among Latinos in the Winston-Salem area.
