Black racial attitudes : trends and complexities by Howard Schuman( Book )

12 editions published in 1974 in English and held by 713 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The slogan "study the victimizers, not the victims," can too easily become an excuse for substituting the ideologies and preconceptions of white and black intellectuals for the often different reality revealed by empirical research. This monograph tries to present a modest but complex set of data gathered using attitude sample survey methods, and to do so within a relatively objective framework of analysis and reporting. The main final comparison samples were representative of Detroit black heads and wives of heads of house, ages 21-69 inclusive, at each of three points in time. The first set of data is drawn from interviews with 2,809 black respondents, ages 16-69, in Detroit and 14 other American cities. These interviews were carried out between January 6 and March 31 of 1968. a second independent survey of black attitudes was carried out in Detroit by the Detroit Area Study April 24-July 31 of 1968. It included six questions from the first study. Because the assassination of Martin Luther King occurred during the three weeks between the completion of the first study and the beginning of the second, a comparison of responses to the six repeated questions permits assessment of the immediate effect of the assassination on attitudes of the Detroit black adult population. The third survey, also a Detroit area study, was carried out in 1971, April 15-September 26. (Author/JM)
Hope and independence : Blacks' response to electoral and party politics by Patricia Gurin( Book )

7 editions published in 1989 in English and held by 540 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Over the past fifteen years, a New Black Politics has swept black candidates into office and registered black voters in numbers unimaginable since the days of Reconstruction. Based on interviews with a representative sample of nearly 1,000 voting-age black Americans, Hope and Independence explores blacks' attitudes toward electoral and party politics and toward Jesse Jackson's first presidential bid. Viewed in the light of black political history, the survey reveals enduring themes of hope (for eventual inclusion in traditional politics, despite repeated disappointments) and independence (a strategy of operating outside conventional political institutions in order to achieve incorporation). The authors describe a black electorate that is less alienated than many have suggested. Blacks are more politically engaged than whites with comparable levels of education. And despite growing economic inequality in the black community, the authors find no serious class-based political cleavage. Underlying the widespread support for Jackson among blacks, a distinction emerges between "common fate" solidarity, which is pro-black, committed to internal criticism of the Democratic party, and conscious of commonality with other disadvantaged groups, and "exclusivist" solidarity, which is pro-black but also hostile to whites and less empathetic to other minorities. This second, more divisive type of solidarity expresses itself in the desire for a separate black party or a vote black strategy—but its proponents constitute a small minority of the black electorate and show surprisingly hopeful attitudes toward the Democratic party. Hope and Independence will be welcomed by readers concerned with opinion research, the sociology of race, and the psychology of group consciousness. By probing the attitudes of individual blacks in the context of a watershed campaign, this book also makes a vital contribution to our grasp of current electoral politics

Early Years of Marriage (EYM) Project, Years 1-4, 1986-1989( )

1 edition published in 2007 in English and held by 23 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The purpose of the Early Years of Marriage (EYM) Project was to determine ways in which the early development of marriage for Black couples and White couples affect the mental and physical health of spouses, marital stability, long-term marital outcomes, patterns of family life and, for those who divorce, individual adjustment to family disruption. The EYM Project began in 1986 with 373 newlywed couples--174 White couples and 199 Black couples. The marriages were all intra-racial and it was the first marriage for both spouses. Year 1 interviews, which queried the couples on various aspects of married life, began after four to nine months into the marriage. Very few respondents who originally participated in Year 1 of the study refused to participate in subsequent phases of the study. In 1986 (Year 1) and 1988 (Year 3) spouses were interviewed in their homes separately and together, with the interviews conducted by interviewers of the same race. In 1987 (Year 2) and 1989 (Year 4) shorter individual telephone interviews were conducted. In all four years, respondents were queried on a wide variety of topics such as feelings and perceptions of their own family, spouse, in-laws, and their spouse's friends, family planning, how many children they should have, how the children should be reared, childcare, and household roles and responsibilities. A series of questions was asked about reasons for getting married, how satisfying married life was, what, if any, were the special pleasures and good feelings that came from being married, how often arguments and disagreements occurred, main reasons for arguments, and how they were eventually resolved. A series of questions were also asked regarding the mental and physical health of the spouse, job satisfaction, job security, and how the job affected the family. In Year 2 and Year 4 interviews (Parts 2-4), a series of questions rega ... Cf.: http://dx.doi.org/10.3886/ICPSR04557

Correlates of Sex Role Attitudes Among Black Men and Women: Data from a National Survey of Black Americans by Shirley Hatchett( Book )

2 editions published in 1983 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In an investigation of the socioeconomic and demographic correlates of sex role attitudes among black Americans, four sex role attitude items were analyzed. Two tapped attitudes toward familial division of labor, one addressed perceptions of the consequences of women working, and one addressed attitudes toward motherhood. Eight background variables were included in the analysis: age, education, household income, region of residence, religiosity, and marital, job, and parental status. Findings documented a great deal of support for egalitarianism among black Americans, both men and women. Generally, the data showed support for more modern sex role norms in all areas except one--motherhood, which a large majority of both sexes saw as the most fulfilling role for women. Although there were sex differences on the other three norms, they were not as large as might be expected. Overall, the correlates and predictors of sex role attitudes of men and women were found to be different. More relationships were found between socioeconomic variables and sex role attitudes for black women than for black men. Except for sex, none of the background variables, either alone or with others, explained more than a very modest proportion of the variance in sex role attitudes. (Cmg)
