dc.description.abstractMultiracial congregations have become a popular field of study despite the fact that they constitute a small fraction of religious organizations. Due to this recent focus, a lack of examination has been given to more prevalent congregations which consist of only one race. Also, recent literature has focused on congregational-level analyses, foregoing individual-level data. Thus, there is a dearth of information on who attends Uniracial congregations and what effects racial diversity has on attendee’s belief and action. Building on the work of Hadaway, Hackett, and Miller (1984), and Emerson and Smith (2000), this paper paints a picture of these attendees while testing the salience of the 80/20 delineation currently used to define multiracial congregations. Through analysis of 1721 cases from the Baylor Religion Survey, Uniracial attendees are found to trust people of different races less, have contrary views of cross-racial adoption, and be less likely to support racial/ethnic organizations.en
