Manichean Psychology

Racism and the Minds of People of African Descent

by Camara Jules P. Harrell

Publication Date: 01/01/1999

Explores the psychological conditions and circumstances of racism in America that encourage some African-Americans to behave in a self-destructive or self-defeating manner. Harrell (psychology, Howard U.) divides the process into three distinct stages: the environmental events and situations, human information processing, and the responses to racism. He argues that the second of these stages has been neglected in the literature and speculates on the processes in which the human mind moves along the continuum of acquiescence and resistance.
