This thesis examines the unique residential geographies of those identifying as multiracial in metropolitan Atlanta according to the 2010 U.S. Census. Using a concept of segregation and diversity as overlapping in the context of an increasingly complex racial landscape, I ask in what sorts of neighborhoods do those who represent diversity at the very level of their bodies find themselves “in place” in a landscape characterized by uneven segregation. Results support that multiracial individuals tend to avoid places of low diversity and the notion of an emerging stratified ternary racial structure over that of a binary or triracial structure.
