Neighborhood Context and Racial Attitudes.
Kim, Yoon Hough
Using a random sample of 231 married white women in a Southern town, contextual effects of 3 neighborhood variables were investigated in this study. Socioeconomic status (SES), racial composition, and residential mobility were defined, and their effect on racial attitudes was determined. It was found that: (1) high SES housewives were less prejudiced against blacks than low SES wives; (2) neighborhood SES affects racial attitudes, and is greater when neighborhood interaction is active; and, (3) those living in nearly desegregated neighborhoods which are stable are more prejudiced against blacks.
