Black Americans continue to lag whites in family income, the Census Bureau reported. The report said that black family income lost ground relative to white family income, even as the median income for black two-parent families rose 31%, from $26,880 in 1969 to $35,230 in 1993. Overall, the median black household income was $21,550 in 1993--virtually even with the inflation-adjusted $22,000 in 1969.

It's your first day at the new job, and you've noticed something different. It's you. Your co-workers and your boss are not of your gender or background. You're a white male. Kevin O'Gorman, one of the few white employees--and the only white reporter--at the Voice & Viewpoint, a San Diego newspaper that covers the African American community, has some advice for someone caught in the process of reverse integration: Just relax--it worked for me, it can work for you.

More than 5,000 white applicants for firefighters jobs will not be permitted to take today's exam to join the Los Angeles Fire Department because of a federal consent decree aimed at increasing minority representation on the force, city officials said. About 8,000 people are expected to flock to Fairfax High School to take the Civil Service test, the first one offered in four years. Those who have been blocked, predominantly white men, are criticizing the process as being unfair.

Should Santa Ana be the metropolitan downtown for an increasingly cosmopolitan Orange County? Or is it California's largest Latino city and a showcase for the multicultural experience?

I have a series of confessions to make. For starters, I am a white male. I'm angry. I'm angry because women and minorities are taking over. I may even be boiling with a white-hot intensity. I'm resentful over losing my power to cope with societal changes. I'm suffering, too, from emotional disillusionment, but that may just be another manifestation of losing my power. I'm also a clod and, quite possibly, a boor.

N. Stephen Vallance served as a Los Angeles police officer for 10 years, winning commendations and the respect of his peers and supervisors.

Vallance could not stay away.
