Would any of you be interested in taking it over. I do believe it is a worthwhile topic; I just can't find the time to keep it up. Thanks!

Assimilation itself causes these people to remain impoverished and marginalized; the cultural niche awaiting them is one of low status and inequality. Even gaining an education has broadened the gap between them and similarly educated Americans.
