Title

Article "Whites View Race Relations as Healthy"

Description

The article published by The Collegian in the "National News" section on September 28th, 1989, called, "Whites View Race Relations As Healthy," describes the opinions of white people on the quality of black lives. The article found that more white people find black lives to have improved significantly compared to the opinion of black people. Sheila Comer, one of the white people interviewed for the article said, "I believe that every person is prejudiced, that they naturally are more interested in their own race, because you can understand and are more interested, like women are more interested in women's problems." Despite the research finding that white people felt better about race relations than black people, it also found that white people still used race as a motive for not supporting affirmative action.
