As one example, comparing middle-class families, for every dollar of wealth owned by whites, Black Americans have fifteen cents.
Thus, although there has been substantial growth of an African American middle class, the Black middle class has a tenuous hold on this class status and, be- cause of continuing racial segregation is far more exposed to various risks than is the case for the white middle class Pattillo-McCoy, And, although there is less research on the Latino middle class, we know that there is sig- nificant class differentiation among Latino groups and significant class dif- ferences within particular groups Massey, Women in the top 25 percent of income groups have seen the highest wage growth over the last 20 years; the lowest earning groups of women, like men, have seen wages fall while the middle has remained flat Mishel, Bernstein and Allegretto, These data point to the need for analyzing race, class, and gender simultaneously without sub- suming any one under any other.

These interracial dating preferences have real—world results, Galinsky found. He analyzed the US Census data and found a similar pattern among interracial marriages: An even more pronounced pattern emerged in Asian—black marriages, in which 86 percent had a black husband and an Asian wife.Demographic structure of society- race and ethnicity
The effects of gendered races extend to leadership selection and athletic participation, further research showed. In a study in which participants evaluated job candidates, Asians were more likely to be selected for a leadership position that required collaboration and relationship building, traits typically perceived as feminine.
