Abstract: 

This article examines second generation Nigerian adults' attitudes to affirmative action and whether black immigrants and their children should be beneficiaries of the policy to gauge their panethnic levels and notions of linked fate with African Americans. I find evidence of panethnic developments based on shared racial status and experiences of discrimination. However, this panethnic identity exists alongside emerging class based affinities with middle class Black Americans.
