  • Racial-Ethnic Socialization and Youth Ideological Formations in an Era of
           Diversity and Inclusion
    • Authors: DeFreece; A. W.
      Pages: 119 - 132
      Abstract: This article introduces a special issue of Humanity & Society which aims to expand approaches to the development of racial and ethnic minority youths’ beliefs regarding the role of race and racism in shaping U.S. society. In this introduction, I highlight the increasingly contradictory nature of our public discourse on race as signaling a unique moment in which taking stock of how racial and ethnic minority youth learn race must be linked more directly to their ideological development. I suggest that at the core of these contradictions is the ethos of individualism which is both a key principle of our national identity and a pillar that sustains the racialized character of our social system. A brief review of two parallel lines of inquiry—the micro-oriented field of race and ethnic socialization and macro-sociological perspectives on the determinants of ideological formations among American Blacks—is offered in support of a call to wed insights from these fields.

  • Body Control: The Neocolonial Displacement of the Multiple Minority Queer
           Body in Urban Space
    • Authors: Harris; L.
      Pages: 133 - 154
      Abstract: This article genealogically explores the present dilemma of the queer migratory body with intersecting identities that carry a historical timeline of prejudice concerning body control based on foreign-born status, color, class, and sexual citizenship within a nation with a colonial history, the United States specifically. The social space effects of possessing multiple minority identities are expounded upon by charting past events, statutes, and prejudicial practices while correlating them to the social restrictions of free movement placed upon queer migratory bodies of color today. This article takes into consideration various forms of economic, social, and cultural capital–based inclusive entry fees into ethnically reflective urban space, queer urban space, and public urban space. This article also explores the social reactions of majority populations in situations that threaten the capitalist neocolonial power construct model and how this reaction impacts queer migratory bodies of color within urban spaces.

  • Communicating Care Across Culture and Language: The Student-teacher
           Relationship as a Site of Socialization in Public Schools
    • Authors: Dexter, A. L; Lavigne, A. L, de la Garza, T. O.
      Pages: 155 - 179
      Abstract: Formal schooling is a site of cultural socialization where children are taught how to see their world and themselves. As teachers are a primary medium through which this socialization occurs, the present study explores students’ perceptions of teachers’ care in two schools where a majority of students and teachers differ in cultural heritage. Like many public schools in the nation, students at these schools were predominantly Latin@, while the teachers were mostly white. Students at an elementary school and a high school were interviewed about how teachers communicate care for students. While a majority of elementary students reported that teachers showed care for them by speaking in Spanish, few high school students mentioned this as a way teachers showed care. Older students perceived teachers’ care through committed academic support and creation of personal relationships. High school students reported that teachers respected their culture by omitting it from classroom discussion and not using it to discriminate against them. We argue that this conception of teacher’s care including restrictive language norms and without mentioning culture suggests that these students have been socialized to perceive learning in schools as a-cultural. The implications of this perspective for students’ learning, academic success, and developing identities are discussed.

  • All Lives Matter, but so Does Race: Black Lives Matter and the Evolving
           Role of Social Media
    • Authors: Carney; N.
      Pages: 180 - 199
      Abstract: This article demonstrates the ways in which youth of color played an active role in debates that erupted on Twitter following the tragic deaths of Michael Brown and Eric Garner in 2014. These debates on social media represent a larger struggle over discourse on race and racism across the nation. Drawing from critical theory and race theory, and engaging in the relatively new practice of using Twitter as a source of data for sociological analysis, this article examines Twitter as an emerging public sphere and studies the hashtags "#AllLivesMatter" and "#BlackLivesMatter" as contested signs that represent dominant ideologies. This article consists of a qualitative textual analysis of a selection of Twitter posts from December 3 to 7, 2014, following the nonindictments of officers in the murders of Michael Brown and Eric Garner. The debates on Twitter reveal various strategies that youth of color employed to shape the national discourse about race in the wake of these high-profile tragedies.
