American white supremacists have long warned us of a terrifying possibility that now seems all but inevitable: the possibility of white people becoming a minority in their own country. Putting aside the question of whose country the US is, I can report my experiences on the vanguard of this trend, having lived for two-and-a-half years as a white man (but not white enough for some people, oy!) in the 7%-white neighborhood of East Harlem.
