Behavioral Criteria in Research and the Study of Racism: Performing the Jackal Function (Part II).
Hilliard, Asa G.; Jenkins, Yolanda L.
This document describes the methodology and results of a pilot study and outlines the hypotheses and procedures of a final study to identify and measure racist behaviors and attitudes in adults. The impact of a slide presentation on racial attitudes was also examined. The context of the pilot study was a workshop on race relations designed to focus on the issue of race and to promote interracial interactions among the racially diverse participants. The structure of the workshop is outlined, and the data collection methods, consisting of two trained observers and instruments measuring cognitive, affective, social, and personal history domains, are described. Results are discussed for each of 12 measures, relating types of responses to the race of participants. The hypotheses and procedures of the final study are proposed, in which the research design calls for three groups of participants: an all black group, an all white group, and a racially mixed group. Data collection instruments and analyses are explained. Appended are pilot study workshop evaluation forms and selections from transcripts of small and large group discussions in the pilot study.
