The purpose of this investigation was to examine the relationship between modern racist attitudes, attitudes toward affirmative action, and colorblind attitudes. One hundred seventy two college students were given the Color-Blind Racial Attitudes Scale (CoBRAS), Modern Racism Scale (MRS), and Attitudes Toward Affirmative Action Scale (ATAAS). Results confirmed a positive correlation between modern racism and colorblind attitudes. In addition, modern racism was able to predict scores on the Attitudes Toward Affirmative Action Scale (ATAAS).
