Caught in the Middle: Understanding Asian Pacific American Perspectives on Affirmative Action through Blumer's Group Position Theory.
Inkelas, Karen Kurotsuchi
Journal of College Student Development, v44 n5 p625-43 Sep-Oct 2003
This study examines Asian Pacific American undergraduates' views on affirmative action and their perspectives on U.S. race relations through Herbert Blumer's (1958) theory of group position. Results indicate that Asian Pacific American (APA) students may perceive other minority student applicants as inferior to APA applicants and feel threatened by both majority and minority groups in the college admissions process.
