2 Status Anxiety and the Paradox of Progress In many ways America's blacks
appear to be more alienated than ever from whites. Some opinion polls find that
the more prosperous and educated among them are, if anything, even more
estranged than their lower-status counterparts struggling to make their incomes
match their outgo. Yet it is the more privileged middle classes within the black
population who have reaped the major benefits of affirmative action but who also
seem to be ...

[Status] anxiety is provoked by, among other elements, recession, redundancy,
