Interprets and contrasts data from two large student surveys investigating attitudes among interracial and monoracial high school and college students. Refutes earlier studies that suggested interracial students suffer from diminished self esteem and psychological well being. Discovers interesting anomalies between ethnic self-labeling and the design of survey questions. (MJP)
