The purpose of this study was to test the potential of educational television and parent–child discussions about race to change White children’s attitudes toward Blacks. Ninety-three White children ages 5–7 and their parents participated. Families were randomly assigned into three experimental groups and one control group. Those in the experimental groups were asked either to show their children five educational videos, with or without additional discussions, or to have race-related discussions with their children without the videos. Improvements were seen in children’s out-group attitudes in both the video and discussion groups, whereas in-group attitudes decreased for those who watched videos and had discussions with their parents. Results revealed lack of parental compliance. Even when instructed to do so, only 10% of parents reported having in-depth race-related discussions with their children. Children’s racial attitudes were not significantly correlated with those of their parents, but children’s perceptions of their parents’ attitudes were positively correlated with their own. Reasons for parents’ reticence about race discussions, their outcome implications, and directions for future research and intervention are discussed.

A special Latin American acculturative context is currently developing in Chile in which native Chileans have contact with several immigrant groups, particularly newcomers from Peru. This study examines several intergroup variables including contact, national and Latino American identities, group distinctiveness, realistic threat, intergroup anxiety, and acculturation preferences as predictors of prejudice on the part of both Chilean natives and Peruvian immigrants. Three hundred Peruvian immigrants (194 females and 106 males) and 300 Chileans (199 females and 101 males) participated in the study. Acculturation preferences, perceived group distinctiveness, and especially intergroup contact were shown to be important predictors of prejudice toward out-group members. Intergroup anxiety and realistic threat mediated some of these effects. The pattern of these results also varied as a function of nationality. Theoretical as well as practical implications for further research are discussed.

No attitude?

A Cambridge Strawberry Fair é um evento secular. Atrai visitantes de toda a Inglaterra, o que não chega a agradar a todos os habitantes desta aprazível e tranqüila cidade universitária inglesa. Os moradores avisam, no entanto, que há uma Strawberry diurna, para as crianças e as famílias, e uma festa noturna para drunkers e junkies. O que talvez explique o cartaz abaixo, encontrada em um dos acessos ao Midsummer Commons, o local onde a feira é realizada. Os organizadores solicitam aos participantes algumas coisas bastante razoáveis. Copos e garrafas de vidro podem quebras e causar ferimentos até certo ponto graves. Drogas, nudismo, agressões, racismo e homofobia constituem atos ilegais e as autoridades devem se esmerar para que as leis sejam respeitadas. Agora, não ter atitudes? O que isto pode significar?
