While multiracial individuals have made significant strides in attaining regulative legitimacy, they continue to struggle to gain normative and cultural-cognitive legitimacy in the marketplace and society. This paper explores the experiences of multiracial consumers, examining how multiracial consumers learn and, by their very presence, define marketplace and societal expectations.
