Chapter 4 looks at the relationship between social class and racial identity among multiracial Americans. It illustrates the conflation of “Black” culture and social class and shows how social class impacts interracial interaction and the racial identity of multiracial persons. The higher multiracials are on the socio-economic ladder, the more likely they are to identify as white, multiracial--or as no race at all. The chapter concludes with a discussion of the repercussions of this trend on social support for race-based public policies in the U.S.
