Abstract:

Within the context of a theory of perceived group interest this study examines the additiive and interactive effects of minority status and social class in explaining relatively privileged AFrican Americans', Latinos', and Asians' support for income-targeted and race/ethnic targeted redistributive policies. Findings from a sample utilizing th 1994 Multi city Study of Urban INequality and the 200 National Election Study suggesy that across both types of policies perceived allegiances to both fellow racial/ethnic group members and the middle class account for the predomiance of joint minority/social class effects and levels of policy support that are intermediate between co-racial/ethnic group working class and the White middle class. The implications of the findings for further research in the area of investigation are discussed
