Race & Ethnicity, Unit 3

America is more divided by class than race

According to the Pew Research Centre- America’s divisions based on class have supplanted those based on race as the key cleavage in US society. This piece from yesterday’s Guardian suggests that while the US Presidential election of 2008 was fought on the issue of race, the battle on November will be fought on class lines.

As being poor and being Black/Hispanic correlate to a great extent in America- this still makes excellent reading for Unit 3’s Race and Ethnicity topic.
