In this photo taken March 14, 2013, morning commuters fill the platform as they exit a train in New York's Times Square subway station. An historic decline in the number of U.S. whites and the fast growth of Latinos are blurring traditional black-white color lines, testing the limits of civil rights laws and reshaping political alliances as “whiteness” begins to lose its numerical dominance. The demographic shift is now a potent backdrop to an immigration overhaul bill being debated in Congress that could offer a path to citizenship for 11 million mostly Hispanic illegal immigrants.
