A Comparison of Chinese American and Hispanic Perceptions of Communication Discrimination.
Schiff, Elizabeth N.
Most studies of discrimination have been based on researchers' observations or on the perceptions of those who discriminate. Few attempts have been made to focus on the perceptions of the victims of discrimination. A comparison made between the direct perceptions of Hispanic Americans and those of Chinese Americans, both of whom are victims of discrimination in the United States, shows the similarities and differences that exist between the two groups. This study may offer insights into patterns of interpersonal conflict between each of these minorities and the white majority. (Author/AEM)
