Long Time Coming: Racial Inequality in the Nonmetropolitan South, 1940-1990

By Mark A. Fossett; M. Therese Seibert | Go to book overview

Plan of the Book

Our monograph is organized as follows. Chapter Two provides a review of ecological and structural theories which identify potential determinants of changes in racial inequality over time in local areas. Chapter Three reviews key methodological issues we had to come to terms with to complete our study. Chapter Four presents descriptive analyses which document the basic patterns of change in racial inequality in southern nonmetropolitan areas between 1940 and 1990. Chapter Five presents the results of regression analyses which investigate cross-sectional variation in racial inequality. Chapter Six presents the results of panel regression analyses and analyses of covariance structures which investigate change over time in racial inequality. Chapter Seven briefly summarizes the major findings from the analysis chapters and attempts to place trends in racial inequality in the nonmetropolitan South in perspective as we approach the beginning of a new millennium.


Notes
1.
For comprehensive reviews which examine trends in racial inequality for many different aspects of socioeconomic attainment see Farley ( 1995), Farley and Allen ( 1986), National Research Council ( 1989).

White support for interventions to insure equality of opportunities, much less outcomes, has always been lukewarm compared to White support for ideals of equal opportunity ( Schuman, Steeh, and Bobo 1985: Chapter 3). Similarly, the percentage of (primarily White) respondents who identified civil rights as the nation's most important problem peaked during the late 1960s and fell to near zero by the early 1970s ( Schuman, Steeh, and Bobo 1985:27).

See National Research Council ( 1989: Chapter 3, Racial Attitudes and Behavior), Schuman, Steeh, and Bobo ( 1985), and Kluegel and Smith ( 1986) for analysis of Whites' attitudes toward affirmative action and other policies addressing racial inequality.
4.
Thus, recent decades have seen the emergence of the curious combination of beliefs among many Whites that state sponsored initiatives to end discrimination and establish equality of opportunity have been so successful they are no longer needed and yet further efforts to expand opportunities for disadvantaged groups and redress inequalities should not be undertaken because past efforts have either failed or been counterproductive.
5.
Nationally, the percentage of Black men ages 25-29 in correctional institutions increased from approximately 4.5 in 1980 to approximately 8.2 in 1990 (McGruder 1995). For Whites, the percentage was much lower ini-
