This chapter examines the unconscious antiblack bias held by members of black Greek-letter organizations (BGLOs) and shows that BGLO members adopt many of the same pro-white biases as nonmembers. It looks at the use of the computerized Implicit Association Test (IAT)for the study of implicit attitudes, such as racial bias. It also considers whites’ implicit racial attitudes and analyzes whether the implicit and explicit intergroup attitudes of BGLO members differ from those of other African Americans.

Keywords:   black Greek-letter organizations, Implicit Association Test, racial bias, whites, racial attitudes, African Americans
