Abstract

This study of White male undergraduates at one historically Black university explored experiences and perspectives relevant to racial beliefs and White racial consciousness. Respondents who characterized their temporary minority status with emphasis on "minority" tended to voice White racial consciousness perspectives consistent with greater awareness of racial and gender privilege.
