Feeling at Home

The best America is one in which families of various nationalities and colors feel at home. One where names on mailboxes run the gamut of vowel-consonant mixes and children growing up don't even notice.

New numbers show the US moving toward that ideal of brotherhood. A Harvard study finds sharp gains in overall home buying - owning a share in America. Strikingly, Hispanic, black and Asian families all participated in a surge of first-time homebuyers. Minorities account for 29 percent of new homeowners. That's a step toward better schools and jobs for their kids.
