"Black-White and American-Vietnamese Relations Among Soldiers in Vietnam."
Journal of Social Issues, 31(4), 39-48.
The abstract provided by the article reads:
"An anonymous questionnaire was administered to assess the attitudes and perceptions of 126
black and 359 white soldiers returned from Vietnam as to both black-white and American-Vietnamese
relations within that country. Factor scores developed for each of these two areas served as the
dependent variables. Overall, blacks, and especially younger blacks, held a more negative view of
the racial climate than did whites. Black-white relationships were reported to be better in
Vietnam than in the U.S., especially among soldiers who served in actual combat. Blacks reported
less negative attitudes toward the Vietnamese than did whites. Soldiers in combat (versus
noncombat-support) units perceived the American-Vietnamese reslationship more negatively."
