Abstract:     
In this paper, I examine the impact of the 2007 recession by gender, race, and class. My analysis shows the disparate impact of the recession on men, Hispanic/Latino Americans and African Americans and reflects the recession's successively greater impact upon each group with African Americans suffering the highest rates of unemployment. Further, it has been suggested that this recession will quite likely spell the end of middle class status for many Americans. I identify factors contributing to this gloomy assessment with particular attention to the economically embattled black middle class.
