    Re: Self Esteem

    Because black Americans don´t really know where is the top. Since Anne Park sat on the bus black Americans think they haven´t fulfilled the "American dream" in a country that has mischieved equality for quality. And where positive discrimination has increased the sense of "minority" whereas the term "minority" should be thought again. I recommend "Crash" as a mild but valid Hollywood product of "something is changing..."

    Sad Re: Self Esteem

    most whites in America have been told ,shame on you for almost two generations now. While the blacks have been given pretty much evrything there little hearts desire by the government. That in itself can be a detriment to the self esteem of white folks.

    Re: Self Esteem

    I have been meaning to come back to this topic, and tonight is as good a time as any. I wanted to provide more findings from the research on self esteem and race/culture.

    In a study by Mandara & Murray (2000) on income and marital status, the results of income level were found to be inconclusive in total, and insignificant in many factors. What best predicted self esteem in Black adolescents differed for males and females. In males, higher self-esteem was found in those who had parents which were married.

    Mandara, J., Murray, C. (2002). Effects of parental marital status, income, and family functioning on african american adolescent self-esteem. Journal of Family Psychology, 14(3), 475-490.



    One study, by Ruiz, et. al., (2002), examined several cultural factors as they relate to self esteem in low SES Mexican-American children and high SES European-American children ages 8-14. They found evidence to support an effect of SES on low SES Mexican-American children. They also found that the influence of parents on their children was a stronger predictor of self-esteem in European-American children than in Mexican-American children. One explanation of this proposed by the authors is the lack of fatherly influence in the lives of Mexican-American youths (Ruiz, et. al., 2002).

    Ruiz, S., Roosa, M., Gonzales, N. (2002). Predictors of self-esteem for mexican american and european american youths: A reexamination of the influence of parenting. Journal of Family Psychology, 16(1), 70-80.



    In a quantitative review of the literature and a study by Gray-Little and Hafdahl (2000), results indicate that Black adolescents have a higher self-esteem than do White adolescents. These results were further examined by Twenge & Crocker (2002) in a meta-analysis. Support for Black adolescents higher self-esteem was discovered. Across all factors, Black Americans had a higher self-esteem than any other racial group. White adolescents had the next highest self-esteem, and all other minority groups scored lower than Whites on self-esteem. Hispanics were distinguished as a separate racial group of their own in the study. Hispanics were further separated into Mexicans and other Hispanics, with Mexicans scoring lower on measures of self-esteem than other Hispanic groups. Another finding of this meta-analyses revealed that self-esteem for minorities was highest in areas where the majority of them lived. For example, it was highest for Blacks in the South (Twenge & Crocker, 2002). Regarding gender and self-esteem, males in Black, Asian, and Hispanic groups have a lower self-esteem than their female counterparts, relative to Whites. Twenge and Crocker (2002) made mention that males may be more affected by discrimination based upon their race then females are.

    Gray-Little, B., Hafdahl, A. (2000). Factors influencing racial comparisons of self-esteem: A quantitative review. Psychological Bulletin, 126(1), 26-54.

    Twenge, J., & Crocker, J. (2002). Race and self-esteem: Meta-analyses comparing whites, blacks, hispanics, and american indians and comment on gray-little and hafdahl (2000). Psychological Bulletin, 128(3), 371-408.


    Self-esteem has been examined in various cultures around the world in their native countries. Schmitt & Allik (2005) report that all countries scored above the mean score for self-esteem, however some countries were close to it. Japan, several other Asian countries, and a couple of European ones scored relatively close to the mean. The United States scored relatively high off the mean. It was suggested that positive self-ratings are uncommon in non-western countries (Schmitt & Allik, 2005).

    Schmitt, D. Allik, J. (2005). Simultaneous administration of the rosenberg self-esteem scale in 53 nations: Exploring the universal and culture-specific features of global self-esteem. Journal of Personality and Social Psychology, 89(4), 623-642.

    I tried to include links to full text articles if I could locate them on-line for anyone interested in reading the actual research. If I couldn't inf full text, I just linked to the abstract.

    Re: Self Esteem

    A good example and part of the reason for this...
    Black women and men are not obsessed over their weight as white people are. Black females have higher self esteem, it is said.

    Different cultural backgrounds still tend to prefer different things, than what society likes.

    Re: Self Esteem

    Although I do believe that Blacks are on average less intelligent I personally don't buy that current Black self esteem is due to ignorance being bliss. Liberals got it in their heads way back that boosting Black self esteem was important and they set in place school curricula and such that helped boost Black self esteem. At the same time liberals started teaching their children that the Whites of generations past were some kind of cold evil unfeeling people who enslaved everyone on the planet including each other and exploited them for their own profit.

    Negroes are put in bubbles and on pedestals by Jew media, so they have no idea what real life is like, which leaves them dependent upon White Devils to keep Jim Crow Jumping. If Negroes were forced to live like their own, in their own continent, they would hardly be like they are in White Nations.
