Kluegel, James R.; Smith, Eliot R.
American Sociological Review, v47 n4 p518-32 Aug 1982
Cites data which show that Whites tend to perceive widespread reverse discrimination, to see Blacks' opportunities as having greatly improved in recent years, and to deny structural limits to Black opportunity. Posits that these perceptions are related to (1) prevailing public beliefs about stratification and (2) peoples' own social positions and experiences. (Author/GC)
