Racial Prejudice in a Capitalist State: What Happened to the American Creed?
Schaefer, Richard T.
Phylon, v47 n3 p192-98 Sep 1986
Analyzes data on White attitudes toward Blacks, 1942-1985, to test Myrdal's hypothesis that racial bigotry in America would diminish as the South became more industrialized, urban, and literate. Discusses findings in relation to dominant ideologies, the gap between attitudes held by Blacks and Whites on levels of life satisfaction, and White attitudes towards social welfare. (KH)
