Hmm, that Sleepyhead song continues to be the soundtrack. All we need is the ton of grass.
Anyway, in The American Perception of Class, sociologists Reeve Vanneman and Lynn Weber Cannon present evidence showing that there's nothing incompatible between class and ethnic identification - on the contrary, the two are often correlated. They theorize that the real contradiction is between "the committed individual who is closely enmeshed in networks of both class and community, and the isolated individual who has little identification with any group."
