Question and answer
what legislation meant to constrain race within prejudicial boundaries was enacted? How did the various groups researched fight this legislation on african americans?
To the extent that race is understood to be biologically determined, members of all racial groups may exhibit a tendency to attend to and extend themselves to racial ingroup members more than to outgroup members. [ In Study 3, for example, we found that race conceptions predicted friendship motivation for a wide variety of racial groups. People need not be members of historically disadvantaged
groups to either experience or deliver disregard. We argue, however, that the long-term consequences of disregard for historically disadvantaged groups in particular are likely to be profound. Support for public policies designed to decrease racial disparities between Blacks and Whites, for example, are likely to be met with less support to the extent that race is viewed as biologically determined. Disadvantaged groups may remain at the margins of society while other groups advance?not unlike the situation described for Black men in the New York Times article used as a stimulus in Study 2. For the disadvantaged, disregard becomes a more general civic disregard that operates at both the intergroup and interpersonal levels to deepen alienation and marginalization. Not only are members of disadvantaged groups?who routinely experience disregard?vulnerable to social and economic isolation but also to a decline in feelings of belonging and to depressed cognitive performance (Walton & Cohen, 2007). Close connections to and acceptance by other people are essential to our experiences of well-being and to our very humanity (Diener & Oishi, 2005). Without this, we all suffer. ]
