The idea of "racial democracy" in Latin American populations has traditionally assumed that class is a more significant factor than race. But despite the emergence of a mestizo class--people who are culturally and racially mixed--there remains a complex discrimination against blacks. Drawing on extensive anthropological fieldwork, Wade shows how the concept of "blackness" and discrimination are deeply embedded in different social levels and contexts.
