America has come a long way in the eradication of overt prejudice; however, more subtle forms of prejudice remain as roadblocks in our path toward liberty and justice for all. Using Dovidio and Gaertner's (1998) integrated model of racism, we proposed that the nature of these subtle prejudices would vary as a function of political orientation. Caucasian college students completed implicit and explicit measure of racism. As predicted, political orientation did not relate to implicit expression of prejudice, but conservatives showed more explicit prejudice than did liberals.
