This book has examined the nature of stigmatization and discrimination by documenting the experiences and responses of ordinary people who belong to variously stigmatized ethnoracial groups. It has explored how African Americans, Black Brazilians, Arab Palestinians, Ethiopian Jews, and Mizrahi Jews make sense of their predicaments and mold their situations, thus shedding light on the ways in which specific groups experience ethnoracial exclusion and respond to it. This concluding chapter reviews some of the book's major themes and the analytical gains achieved by the study in terms of accounting for the micro-experiences of ethnoracial exclusion and responses to those experiences through a macro comparison of three distinct national contexts; groupness and group boundaries; cultural membership, redistribution, and recognition; and understanding racial formations, reproductions, and transformations in Brazil, Israel, and the United States. The challenges that lie ahead as well as new venues of research are also discussed.
