Reported Friendliness Toward Mexican-Americans as a Function of Belief Similarity and Race.
Cole, Steven G.; Davenport, Kathleen
The theoretical basis for the present study is the proposition that reactions to minority group members by white individuals are related to belief similarity rather than racial similarity. Ninth grade subjects were tested on two occasions with a questionnaire composed of a value scale, an information section, a friendliness scale, and a similarity scale. The results of the study indicate that the subjects respond primarily in terms of belief and secondarily in terms of race. Although similar studies exist for other minority groups, a meaningful comparison of prejudice toward different ethnic groups requires a study designed specifically for that purpose. (Author/LAA)
