Correlates of Attitudes Toward Black Militancy Among Black College Students. Research Report No. 13.
Willis, Carl T.; Goldberg, Faye J.
A 23-item militancy scale was administered to 100 black college students. Background information and Rokeach's Terminal Value Scale were also given. Using a multiple regression analysis, several variables emerged as good predictors of militancy for the sample. The best single predictor is racial designation, militants preferring to call themselve "Black," non-militants preferred Negro. The second best predictor is the extent to which "Salvation" is valued. On an 18-item scale, militants valued salvation 14th while non-militants ranked it 3rd. Occupational preference is the third best predictor, students preferring science or business being less militant. A fourth predictor is father's education, with the father of militants tending to be better educated. Other predictors were rankings on values of national security, a comfortable life, social recognition, and accomplishment. These were all valued more highly by militants. Both groups valued freedom and equality above any other values presented in the Rokeach Value Scale. (Author/KJ)
