Attitudes of White College Education Seniors Toward Blacks.
Erb, David L.
This study attempted to assess the racial attitudes of white college education seniors and to study the relationship between racial prejudice and the following predictor variables: personal contact, change orientation, religiosity, and efficacy. Three research instruments were used to assess racial attitudes and predictor variables: The Attitude Behavior Scale: White/Negro (developed by Jordan and Hamersma) to measure racial attitudes; the Personal Characteristics scale to identify teachers' attitudes toward habits, appearance, and interpersonal characteristics of blacks; the Education Content scale to assess attitudes of future teachers toward the abilities, motives, aspirations, and behaviors of black students. Data showed that contact, change orientation, and efficacy were significantly related to racial attitudes. A correlation between religiosity and prejudice was not supported by the data. Tables illustrating test data are included. [Because of the size of the print, the tables printed in this paper may not be clearly readable in hard copy reproduction.] (KG)
