Abstract
This study investigated the relationship between personal worldview ideologies (colorblind, monocultural and/or multicultural), White racial identity, and future neighborhood preferences among White high school and college students. Using a quasi-experimental design, participants chose pictures of families that varied by race to create “desirable” and “undesirable” neighborhoods in an imagined future community. Personal worldview ideologies and White racial identity were assessed through responses on four questionnaires. The results provided evidence of a relationship between racial ideology and identity. The study also found that autonomy and reintegration racial identity statuses were predictors of neighborhood preferences.
