This chapter illustrates the effect of racial discrimination on African Americans' lives, blacks' racial perceptions, and the perceived likelihood that blacks will be discriminated against by whites, Latinos, Asians, and even other blacks. It also establishes the effect of blacks' knowledge about their groups' historical racial experiences on their contemporary relationships with other racial groups. To the extent that black Americans feel that their knowledge about racial discrimination affects their feelings about certain racial groups suggests that the way black Americans process race in their lives influences their intergroup interactions. When black Americans have little information other than a person's race for determining the risk of racial discrimination, intergroup differences promote more racial uncertainty.
