The Appropriated Racial Oppression Scale Development and Initial Validation

Rangel, Rebecca

The present study examined appropriated racial oppression in a sample of 656 people of color, for which no current validated measure exists. An exploratory factor analysis revealed a 32-item, four-factor structure for this construct. A confirmatory factor analysis resulted in a four-factor, 24-item model for appropriated racial oppression. Finally, path analysis results indicated both predictive and criterion-related validity for the Appropriated Racial Oppression Scale. Implications for clinical use and future directions are discussed.
