Race Prejudice, Status Prejudice, and Socioeconomic Status
Riedesel, Paul L.; Blocker, Jean T.
Sociology and Social Research, 62, 4, 558-71, Jul 78
Hypothesizing that prejudiced feelings about minorities are due not only to racial differences but to the fact that minorities often have lower socio-economic rank as well, this study examines data from a household survey in Tulsa, Oklahoma and documents the greater salience of socioeconomic cues and the lesser salience of racial cues for social distance judgments as the status of white evaluators increases.
