The Lack of an Association between Adolescent Friends' Prejudices and Stereotypes.
Ritchey, P. Neal; Fishbein, Harold D.
Merrill-Palmer Quarterly, v47 n2 p188-206 Apr 2001
Studied the extent to which friends influenced the prejudices and stereotypes of white adolescents by evaluating race, homosexuality, HIV/AIDS, fat prejudice, and sex-role stereotyping. Found friends' prejudices and stereotypes were not associated. Examined possible explanations including discussion among friends, lack of questioning of apparent differences, and adolescents' influence on behaviors other than prejudices. (Author/SD)
