What Color Line? Discrimination and Ethnic Identity

Date: March 30, 2006
Creator: Jones, Andrew & Nuñez-Janes, Mariela
Description: This paper was written based on an interview with a Hispanic professor. The informant was interviewed about his life, schooling, experiences as a professor, and specifically about being a Hispanic professional in higher education. These experiences are discussed, as well as the question of how discrimination affected the professor's preference for an ethnic label. The most important conclusion of this research is that people who do not experience a sense of feeling different based on their ethnicity are likely to accept a color-blind perspective of society. The paper briefly explores the political implications for people who support this model.
