Attitudes about Racial Discrimination and Racial Inequality in the US: A Data-Driven Learning Guide (ICPSR 329)

Principal Investigator(s):


Data-Driven Learning Guides are a collection of instructional exercises that can be used to enhance teaching of core concepts in the social sciences. This learning guide investigates White and Black Americans' attitudes about racial discrimination and racial inequality in the United States. Research questions that can be explored using this learning guide include: whether Black Americans and White Americans differ in their attitudes about racial discrimination, and in their attitudes about the causes of racial inequality in the United States, how White Americans' attitudes toward Black Americans might influence their views and affect their attitudes regarding discrimination and racial inequality, and to what extent racial differences in attitudes about the causes of inequality might be explained in terms of experiences of discrimination.
