Chapter 3: Racial Identity in the Social Environment

Racial Identity Theories

Theory Defined

White Racial Identity Theory

The educator's job is to expand their awareness of identity options and raising growth-promoting questions.

An approach for explaining the pathways to a healthy identity for White people. White people's exposure to racial issues generally has others (non-Whites) as the focus, and does not help them understand how unresolved racial developmental issues affect their personal adjustment and well-being.

Each status involves conceptions of the self as a racial being as well as conceptions of self relative to other racial groups. White's privilege in society makes it easier for them to work through issues of racial identity development than can other groups. White children often enter school unaware that race still exists as a volatile issue in the society, or that they can choose what kind of White person they will be.

Racial Identity Interaction Theory

Hypothesizes that the child's level of identity in combination wtih other's identitoies can result in qualitatively different educational experiences for the child. (p. 53-56)

Racial Identity and People of Color

There is research on many ethnic groups, however, the majority of it continues to focus on Black Americans. The People of Color model of racial identity is intended to describe the the developmental process as it pertains to the shard themes of development rather than the unique.
