Poster Title
Two Peas in a White Pod: White Parents’ Values as a Predictor of Children’s Cross-Race Friends
Abstract
Out-of-group friendships are crucial to decreasing prejudice. Little research has examined how White parents influence children’s friend choices by race. Our study found that White-American parents’ own friend choices by race and racial diversity values, but not explicit racial messages, influenced their children’s friend choices by race. Implications are discussed.
