Abstract

The conclusion reached by R. E. Steele (see record 1978-27665-001) that his samples of Black and White suicide attempters were clinically similar is questioned, as is his inference that his results require a reexamination of the supposed need for separate Black and White psychologies. Specific criticisms are raised regarding some of the variables chosen by Steele for his comparisons, and the manner in which he chose to interpret his data.
