Expanding the Understanding of the Categories of Dysconscious Racism
Anderson, Bill; Narum, Ashley; Wolf, Jennifer Lynn
Educational Forum, v83 n1 p4-12 2019
Dysconscious racism is generally defined as the unquestioned acceptance of culturally dominant norms and privileges, with three categories used to describe college students' reasoning for enduring racial inequity. These range from the historical determinism of slavery to racially exploitive standards inherent in American society. However, few studies have fully utilized these categories. This article has sought to encourage a renewed interest into the student categories by considering them as more of a progressive, developmental continuum.
