A history of rejecting experiences based on status characteristics can lead to doubts about one’s acceptance by members of these social institutions (Aronson, Quinn, & Spencer, 1998; Branscombe, Schmitt, & Harvey, 1999; Crocker, Luhtanen, Broadnax, & Blaine, 1999; Goffman, 1963; Tyler, 1990; Tyler & Smith, 1998). Despite the removal of legal and other structural barriers to achieving diversity, research suggests that some members of historically excluded groups continue to experience such doubts in social institutions that have marginalized them in the past (Bowen & Bok, 1998; Frable, Blackstone, & Sherbaum, 1990; Jones, 1972/1997; Steele, 1997; Steele & Aronson, 1995; Terrell & Terrell, 1981). The RS-Race is an instrument designed to empirically examine how expectations of rejection based on membership in a stigmatized social category or status group influence people’s personal and interpersonal experiences in majority dominated social institutions. In particular, to examine whether anxious expectations of rejection based on such group membership can strain social relationships and undermine people’s confidence in the institution’s fairness and legitimacy, diminishing the motivation to persist in the pursuit of valued personal goals.The Rejection Sensitivity (RS-Race) Questionnaire was developed for African-Americans. It may not be appropriate to use it with other populations. This questionnaire includes 12 (twelve) items.
