Possible factors in prejudice toward Muslims and those perceived to be Muslims were investigated. We specifically investigated cues of foreignness that may communicate threat. Using a 2 (Complexion: dark vs. light) ¥ 2 (Dress: Middle Eastern vs. Western) ¥ 2 (Name: Allen vs. Mohammed) between-subjects design, we expected cues of foreignness (dress...

Colin Wayne Leach is a social psychologist interested in how people emotionally experience their status-oriented comparisons to other people. He studied at Boston University (B.A., 1989; M.A. 1991) and the University of Michigan (Ph.D. 1995) and has been on the faculty of Swarthmore College and the University of California-Santa Cruz in the United...
Article
Ethnic consciousness is “a set of political beliefs and action orientations arising out of the awareness of similarity” (Gurin, Miller, & Gurin, 1980, p. 30). We suggest that these beliefs relate to political values and views among African Americans. Correlational data revealed that ethnic consciousness is negatively correlated with conservative va...
Article
A pervasive form of social categorization among humans is between us and them. In this study, we assessed emotional reactions when people viewed pictures depicting members of the same or different ethnic group. African American and European American participants viewed a series of pleasant and unpleasant pictures portraying either ingroup or outgro...
Article
We propose that individual differences in intergroup flexibility are associated with differences in the stereotypicality of views of certain groups. Intergroup flexibility refers to the tendency to recognize and respond to concurrent similarities and differences among diverse groups including one's own. Study 1 found significantly more of the chara...
Article
In classrooms students of color may experience stigma (i.e., concern about being stereotyped) because negative stereotypes of their intellect are salient. Two studies included African American, European American, and Latina/Latino female and male undergraduates. Study 1 (n= 86) demonstrated while students of color generally had positive expectation...
Article
Researchers have devoted a great deal of attention to gender differences in math perceptions and performance. Although the gap has closed at some levels, important differences persist and have been addressed in detail in previous chapters. However, when one throws ethnicity into the mix, the picture becomes far more complicated. while the ethnicity...
Article
We hypothesized that ingroup romantic preferences positively relate to group ties (e.g., ingroup identity and approval from friends and family) among ethnic minority groups particularly compared to ethnic majority groups. In Study 1, Jewish undergraduates completed items regarding ingroup identity and ratings of Jewish and non-Jewish partners. Stud...
Article
Over the last 50 years, many theories of prejudice reduction in social psychology have embraced the premise that intergroup contact allows people to recognize similarities between themselves, and that this perceived similarity overwhelms the social distance associated with intergroup antipathy. Given the mixed empirical evidence, however, we sugges...

This article critiques trait views of stigma that suggest that membership in a negatively stereotyped group leads to low self-esteem and self-hatred, and it builds from Erving Goffman's theorizing to define stigma as the expectation of a stereotypical and discrediting judgment of oneself by others in a particular context. Students (40 of color and...
Article
Full-text available
A person × situation approach to the study of intergroup anxiety is offered in which anxiety in intergroup encounters is viewed as a transaction between the individual and the environment. An individual difference measure of intergroup anxiety toward African Americans is developed, and studies assessing the scale's reliability and validity are pres...
Article
Full-text available
The authors tested three explanations of findings that sexually aggressive men perceive women's communications differently than less aggressive men. The first suggests that aggressors are incompetent in decoding women's negative emotions. The second posits that they fail to make subtle distinctions between women's friendliness and seductiveness and...
