Perceptions of Racial Equity: An Analysis of Afro-American Studies Students.
Thomas, Gerald Eugene
This study examined white versus black student perceptions of black life chances. One hundred and fifty seven black and white students of Afro-American Studies at a large midwestern university were administered the Thomas Equity Perception Scale (TEPS). Black students perceived more job situation advancements (i.e., initial hire and career development) for whites than for themselves. White students had more of a tendency to see equal opportunity for blacks in America than did blacks. There was no significant sex difference among whites on the TEPS as a general measure. However, on the item regarding initial hire opportunities, white male scores yielded a significant difference compared to black male and female subjects. White males perceived blacks as having more than an equal chance of being hired. (Author/RLV)
