Abstract

As American school districts become increasingly diverse, understanding the processes that promote positive intergroup relations is a critical task. The role of cross-ethnic friendships is one important factor, given the significance of these reciprocated peer relationships for social development. The current study examines the short-term longitudinal impact of cross-ethnic friendships on peer group attitudes and emotional adjustment. 524 student participants (54.8% female; Mage = 15.06 years, SD = 0.75; 47% Latino, 53% Asian-American) were followed for one year with two spring data collections. Students completed a self-report inventory assessing depressive symptoms and a peer nomination inventory assessed friendship, liking, disliking, popularity, and unpopularity. Cross-ethnic friendships were predictive of positive attitudes toward peers from other ethnic/racial groups and were also linked to declines in depressive symptoms for boys. Moreover, these positive effects did not come at a social cost, as cross-ethnic friendships were not associated with rejection by same-ethnic peers. Cross-ethnic friendships provide a unique environment that contributes to positive intergroup attitudes and beneficial socioemotional development for some youth.

We are reporting models with transformed variables, as this is the most conservative approach considering the peer nomination and self-report data were skewed. However, preliminary analyses conducted prior to transforming the variables showed a similar pattern of results.
 
2
In our pilot analyses, we ran linear regression models, separately predicting intergroup and intragroup attitudes at Y2 from Y1 cross-ethnic friendships, including Y1 stability variable, ethnicity, gender, and ethnic identity as control variables. Entry of those variables had no impact on the pattern of results.
