The purpose of this to study is to observe the changes in Black Identity and Colorblind Racism amongst black students following the murders of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor and Ahmaud Arbery. In 2019 I conducted an educational study that examined the relationship between Black Identity and Racial Colorblindness amongst college students within the psychology department. Although the purpose of that study was to determine a correlation between Black Identity and Racial Colorblindness, the data indicated that a substantial number of students scored high in Colorblind Racism and low on Black Identity. The data from the previous study will serve as preliminary data to conduct a comparative analysis of Black Identity and Colorblind Racism in response to current political climate. .
