David Bryan Oxendine, Ph. D.

Gender and race have reliably been found to be associated with measures of social dominance orientation (SDO) and modern racism. This study explores the degree of influence from gender and race on SDO and modern racism. Participants for this study consisted of 245 undergraduate and graduates from a small ethnically diverse regional university in the southeastern United States. Gender failed to have a significant on SDO, where race (White) was found to have a significant impact on SDO. White participants were found to be significantly related to attitudes often associated with SDO. A significant relationship was found between males and modern racism. Additionally, White participants were found to have a significant relationship with modern racism. Implications and future research are discussed.
