[en] Chapter discredits the idea that most Americans are online, pointing out that African Americans and Latinos are 1/3 as likely to have a computer at home, are less employed so less online at work, and Latino immigrants may not be aware of community resources like public access computers at the library. The chapter also describes past and present ideas as to why this difference persists.
