Welcome back all! This week we wish Sociological Images a happy birthday! We also reflect on coded racial language in schools, the U.S. Supreme Court’s influence on diversity in college admissions, and immigrants’ sexual attitudes during college.

There’s Research on That!:

The Supreme Court’s Impacts on Race and Admissions in America,” by Neeraj Rajasekar. In light of Brett Kavanaugh’s recent nomination for the U.S. Supreme Court, we rounded up research on how the Court has influenced diversity in college admissions.


Coded Language Reinforces Racism in School,” by Lucas Lynch. New research in Sociological Perspectives finds that teachers and students use coded racial language to explain Black students’ poor academic achievement.
