Abstract

Previous research has shown that people of racial minorities feel that white people don’t understand how they feel in a community setting. This present study investigates whether students of racial minorities feel that black acceptance on the UNH campus is different than the way that white students view the acceptance of black students. A sample of 326 undergraduate students was surveyed to see how they perceived the acceptance of black on the UNH campus. The data was expanded to include how students of all races feel, not just white students and black students, because the N of black students was so low. It is hypothesized that white students would feel that black students are accepted on the UNH campus. It was also hypothesized that minority students would feel that black students are less included than white students believe. The results show that there is a significant difference between the way that white students view black inclusion and the way that minority students view black inclusion.
