PREJUDICE AND INTERRACIAL INTERACTION ARTICLE ANALYSIS 2 Prejudice and Interracial Interaction Article Analysis The main theory of the article The main theory of this article is Aversive Racism. According to the theory, negative racial evaluations are realized by persistence interaction avoidance with other racial groups. Aversive racism theory covers the more subtle side of racism which is often expressed through ambivalent attitudes, expressions, and prejudices. The basis of this theory is based on research examining explicit and implicit racial attitudes of white people in relation to their behaviors in interracial interactions, both theoretically through other researcher's work or research and a procedural research. The procedural research was conducted in a liberal arts college where a randomly selection of twenty-five female and fifteen male undergraduates was done from a poll of a hundred and forty-three potential participants and asked to participate in the twenty-item attitudes toward blacks scale research procedure (Dovidio J. F., 2002) The specific questions addressed by the study There are three main questions addressed by the study. These questions are; whether or not explicit prejudice primarily predicts verbal affability, and whether or not implicit prejudice primarily affects non-verbal affability. The study also answers the question whether the white people's affability perceptions relates to their explicit nonverbal behaviors and attitudes. Description of study used to test the authors' theory The study, described as a decision task, generally assessed implicit racial attitudes. This was done through an acquitting process. The examined the white people and their behaviors and the black people's impression of interracial interaction. During the study, participants were given

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
