Development of the Asian American Racial Uplifts Scale
The development of the Asian American Racial Uplifts Scale is discussed. The range of positive race-related experiences was explored through an analysis of semi-structured interview data from 20 self-identifying Asian and Asian American students. Using constant comparative analysis, six racial uplift themes were delineated: (a) ethnic bonding, (b) overcoming obstacles, (c) globalism, (d) biculturalism, (e) mainstream regard, and (f) cultural bridging. Implications for racial and ethnic minority psychological well-being are discussed.
