One socialization practice that occurs among African Americans, Latinos, Asian Americans, and Native Americans is the formation of gender identities in the context of both racial/ethnic pride and negative stereotypes about their group. However, the points of celebration and satisfaction, as well as those of hurt and frustration, are gender specific, which means that they can be different for women and men in each racial group. Conversely, most whites do not actively teach their children about race. Occupying a privileged racial position in society, at the top of the racial hierarchy, many white parents feel no obligation to their children to tout the successes, nor mitigate the abuses, of their racial group.
