Symbolic Racism
McConahay, John B.; Hough, Joseph C., Jr.
Journal of Social Issues, 32, 2, 23-46, Spr 76
Presents new data on correlates of symbolic racism, develops a theoretical framework for the concept, and speculates about its emergence at this time. Attitudinally, symbolic racism is a set of abstract moral assertions about blacks behavior as a group; behaviorally, it is a set of acts that are justified on a non-racial basis but that which maintains the racial status quo.
