An Assessment of Racial Awareness, Preference, and Self Identity Among White and Adopted Non-White Children
Simon, Rita James
Social Problems, 22, 1, 43-57, Oct 74
Levels of racial awareness, preferences, and racial identity among non-white children (American Negro, Korean, American Indian) who have been adopted by white families and their white siblings are compared to the reactions of children of the same sex, age range (3-8), and race who have been reared in typical family settings. The major findings are that black children who are reared in the special setting of multi-racial families do not acquire the ambivalence toward their own race that has been reported in other studies and that there are no significant differences in the racial attitudes of any of the categories of children.
