Investigated the experiences of minority students with their white peers on predominantly white campuses. Focus groups revealed how white students' purported color-blindness regarding race often blinded them to their own color conscious behavior and the subsequent stereotyping effects. Participants' discussions examined stereotyping, assimilation, exclusion, marginality, white ignorance, white resentment about affirmative action, and the focus on black and white. (SM)
