THE DEVELOPMENT OF RACIAL BIAS IN YOUNG CHILDREN.
MORLAND, J. KENNETH
IT IS HELD THAT IN A SENSE, AMERICAN SOCIETY EDUCATES FOR PREJUDICE. NEGROES AND WHITES DEVELOP A BIAS FOR THE WHITE RACE AT AN EARLY AGE. PREFERENCE FOR THE WHITE RACE WAS EVIDENT AMONG YOUNG CHILDREN WHEN THE MAJORITY OF 253 NEGRO CHILDREN IN MASSACHUSETTES AND ARKANSAS WERE ASKED TO CHOOSE BETWEEN A WHITE AND A COLORED DOLL. CHILDREN PREFERRED THE WHITE DOLLS. IN LYNCHBURG, VIRGINIA, NEGRO AND WHITE CHILDREN CHOSE WHITE PLAYMATES WHEN TESTED WITH A SERIES OF PHOTOGRAPHS. PREFERENCE FOR WHITES ON THE PART OF NEGRO CHILDREN INDICATES A NEGATIVE ATTITUDE TOWARD RACIAL SELF-IDENTIFICATION AND SELF-CONCEPT. THIS ARTICLE WAS PUBLISHED IN "THEORY INTO PRACTICE-INTERGROUP RELATIONS EDUCATION," VOLUME 2, JUNE 1963.
