Course description: Racial discrimination is a psychosocial stressor that has been linked to adverse mental health outcomes. However, the presence or absence of racial discrimination can be ambiguous. Elements of racial identity may determine how ambiguous negative experiences are interpreted, and later reported, in racial discrimination survey measures. The relationships between racial discrimination, racial identity, implicit racial bias, and depressive symptomology among 95 African American men from 30 to 50 years of age were explored. Racial centrality was positively associated with reports of racial discrimination, while implicit anti-black bias was negatively associated with reports of racial discrimination. Statistical models were developed to predict elevated depressive symptoms. Participants with the greatest risk of having higher depressive symptomology were those who held greater anti-black implicit beliefs and reported lower rates of racial discrimination. Unconscious, as well as conscious, processes related to racial identity were important considerations when assessing the impact of racial discrimination on mental health.
