The CURA publications library is currently being digitized by the University of Minnesota Digital Conservancy. When the project is complete, the entire CURA publications library will be online and fully searchable. Unfortunately, during this process we are not able to honor individual requests for publications . Additionally, we no longer have physical copies of publications to send out.

New publications are digitized daily and the publications catalog on the CURA website is not automatically updated with links to scanned copies, so please search the CURA collection at the Digital Conservancy for the publications you are looking for:

Minority Stereotypes in Minnesota.

Craig, William J.

Minnesotans hold racial stereotypes as deep as those of the rest of the country, a 1997 survey by the Minnesota Center for Survey Research indicates. Minnesotans think members of most minority groups are lazier and more prone to violence than Whites. With few exceptions these views are uniformly held across the state and across various demographic groups. All ethnic and racial groups, however, were rated better than average in both strong work ethic and low tendency toward violence. Similar national surveys have given lower ratings to communities of color.
