Wright, J. W., Jr. – Journal of Intergroup Relations, 1997

The situation of Arab Americans illustrates the case of an ethnic group that is wealthy in the face of persistent prejudice. (SLD)

Economic, political, social, and theoretical values were nearly the same for both groups; slight differences were found for aesthetics and religion. (SLD)
