Abstract or Summary
  • Employees from two different organizations, a public university and a hospital in Oregon, were asked to take part in an interview to assess their perceptions of how race is discussed in their workplace, if racial humor is used in their workplace, if this humor offers an opportunity to discuss race further, and as a result of this discussion, if participants had altered their previous held beliefs about a particular race. Results proved that for the participants in this study, racial humor was used in the workplace and it did offer an opportunity to discuss racial issues further which for the majority of participants, resulted in altering their previous held beliefs about a certain race.
