Urbanism and Racial Attitudes: A Test of Some Urban Theories.
Wilson, Thomas C.
Urban Affairs Quarterly, v20 n2 p201-09 Dec 1984
National survey data are used to test the relationship between urbanism and racial attitudes among Whites, and a liberalizing effect of urbanism is found. It appears that urbanism liberalizes racial attitudes by increasing equal-status, cooperative, and relatively personal contact between members of racial subcultures. (Author/RDN)
