A review by W. C. Banks (see record 1977-21037-001) concluded that the evaluative preference and self-identification responses of Afro-American children toward stimulus alternatives representing light- and dark-skinned persons conformed to simple chance rather than indicating a “White preference in Blacks.” This interpretation is challenged as misleading because of Banks's dismissal of the importance of comparisons by race in the literature cited and because of his failure to cite a number of relevant studies of race and color bias, the results of which are inconsistent with his conclusion.
