Lecture Wednesday: Big Bad Racists, Subtle Prejudice and Minority Victims

MPRC Seminar: Big Bad Racists, Subtle Prejudice and Minority Victims: An Agent-Based Model of the Dynamics of Racial Inequality
Wednesday, May 07, 2014 3:30 PM - 4:30 PM
Cole Student Activities Building : 0124B 


Speaker: Quincy Stewart, Associate Professor of Sociology, Northwestern University

About the Talk: How many racists does it take to maintain racial inequality? Historical evidence from the Jim Crow era suggests one needs a large number of racist advocates in various social arenas. More recent social scientific research, however, cites a significant decline in racist beliefs that have not been paralleled by declines in racial inequality. Hence, the strong hypothesized connection between racist attitudes and racial inequality was erroneous.
