An examination of the intersections between race, class and multiracial identity during the 2010 U.S. recession. Provides a unique focus on the ways in which President Obama's upbringing during the “colorblind” or “post-race” era after Civil Rights movements in the 1950s and 1960s shape his identification on the census as Black/African-American despite his biracial background.
