"Are You as Hard as 50 Cent? Negotiating Race and Masculinity in the Residence Halls
Jaggers, Dametraus; Iverson, Susan V.
Journal of College and University Student Housing, v39 n1 p186-199 2012
In a qualitative study of Black undergraduate men at a predominantly White university in the Midwest, participants shared their experiences in residence halls, including roommate conflicts, interracial tensions, and disagreements with residence hall staff. This article focuses on Black male undergraduates' negotiation of racialized conceptions of masculinity within residence halls and their resistant responses to subordination and racial stereotyping by their White counterparts. Following a presentation and discussion of findings, implications for residence hall professionals and resident assistants are offered. (Contains 4 footnotes.)
