Racists or Tolerant Multiculturalists? How Do They Begin?
Katz, Phyllis A.
American Psychologist, v58 n11 p897-909 Nov 2003
The author discusses how negative racial attitudes originate. First, she looks globally at how various theories have attempted to explain the origins of racism. Second, she reviews some research on this topic that she and her colleagues have completed with very young children. Both the theories and the studies have ramifications for how psychologists might reduce the possibility of children becoming racist.
