Baptist Standard: Neighborhoods shape attitudes on race more than congregations

April 24, 2018
Whites in multiracial congregations have more diverse friendship networks and are more comfortable with minorities, but that is due more to the impact of neighbors and friends of other races than to congregational influence, a Baylor University study found. “Solving America’s racial problems may be hoping too much from religious congregations,” said Kevin Dougherty, Ph.D., associate professor of sociology at Baylor and co-author of the study. “The responsibility for moving toward racial integration still rests considerably with the majority group,” Dougherty and Edward C. Polson, Ph.D., assistant professor in Baylor’s Diana R. Garland School of Social Work, analyzed data from the Baylor Religion Survey for the study, published in the journal Sociology of Race and Ethnicity. (Terry Goodrich, assistant director of Baylor Media Communications, wrote and pitched this story. She covers sociology research and faculty.)
