Description

Race relations in America are at an all time low. The New York Times/CBS News [July 2015] poll confirms this position, indicating that the majority [64%] of Americans felt that race relations have gotten progressively worse between the years of 2010 to 2015. Clearly, this reality constitutes a serious potential setback to national harmony and social progress. Guided by past findings and established theories on race relations, this research examines racial attitude as a function of religious, socio-demographic, and psychosocial predictors. Specific variables include: a number of demographic factors, faith maturity, religiosity, self-esteem, social distance, mindset attribution, and media usage.
