Racism and anti-Semitism in rural America [draft]

This research consists of a sample of 220 adults from six different ethnic groups, including European Americans, African Americans, Native Americans, Asian Americans, Latino Americans and Jewish Americans. The purpose was to examine the feelings, attitudes, perceptions and opinions that each of the six groups had of the others, and to what extent the minority groups "fit in" this rural community and the degree of tolerance they have experienced. The sample, consisting of adults, including students from Humboldt State University, was drawn from the communities in Humboldt County, located in Northern California.
