Abstract

Coopersmith Self-esteem Inventory scores, obtained on a sample of 154 black and 190 white same-sex twin pairs attending Philadelphia area schools, are analyzed to determine the effect of skin color on self-esteem. Skin color alone, and therefore race which is highly correlated with skin color, has no effect upon self-esteem.
