Black and White Marine Squad Leaders' Perceptions of Racially Mixed Squads
FLORIDA UNIV GAINESVILLE
Pagination or Media Count:
The paper reports black and white marine squad leaders perceptions of black, Puerto Rican, and white squad members on several dimensions. Results indicate significant differences in the actual and expected frequencies with which white squad leaders reported they reprimanded, praised, and felt their black, Puerto Rican, and white subordinates were uncertain or undecided about what they were to do. Most differences were traced to reported differences between black and white rather than Puerto Rican subordinates. The results suggest that while leaders may be keeping a certain distance from their black subordinates and handling them with special care.
