The Developmental Dimensions of Recognizing Racist Thoughts
Torres, Vasti
Journal of College Student Development, v50 n5 p504-520 Sep-Oct 2009
This study focuses on understanding the developmental process that occurs when racist ideas are recognized as a part of college students' thought processes. Longitudinal data were collected from 29 Latino/a college students in order to illustrate how these students made meaning of racist thoughts when they began to recognize it. The framework of self-authorship is used as an analytic tool to view the different developmental dimensions.
