The Importance of Social Acceptability in the Measurement of Racial Attitudes.
Sedlacek, William E.; Brooks, Glenwood C., Jr.
The purpose of this study was to determine if white university students were aware of any peer group attitudes toward blacks. Student respondents to a questionnaire felt that college students do not like racists, but a similar group of college students made negative racial responses when their attitudes were measured. The findings provided some evidence that there is a difference in what white students feel are socially acceptable attitudes toward blacks and what they actually feel. (Author/DM)
