Abstract
This book presents a new perspective on race and color by introducing a new approach to research on the subject. It explores the thesis that in regard to the Black race and race-related colors and concepts in American society, Outer- vs. Inner-oriented Caucasians may carry different fear and evaluative associative thought patterns, may have different connotative meanings for race and race-related colors and concepts, may show fear differently in terms of projections and level of fear when the Black race is a factor in regard to power and intimacy. The book explores the symbolic link between anti-black dispositions and fear of, as well as evaluative attributions about, the nature of the Unconscious.
