Measuring Japanese Racial Attitudes. Research Report 4-75.
Forrer, Stephen E.; And Others
Three forms of the Situational Attitude Scale (SAS) were administered to 371 Japanese college students in order to measure their attitudes toward blacks, Koreans, and neutral persons without racial reference in 10 social and personal situations. Data were analyzed by analysis of variance and Scheffe post hoc comparisons. The subjects were found to respond negatively to both blacks and Koreans, but more so toward Koreans. Females responded more negatively than males to blacks and Koreans in situations involving potential physical harm. The overall pattern of responses of Japanese subjects on the SAS was similar to that of American or Danish subjects. (Author)
