specifically, supremacy is needed, as it offers a narrative that does not acquiesce to White racial reasoning ( Leonardo, 2004 ). Examined further, “discourses on supremacy acknowledge white privileges, but only as a function of a whites’ actions toward minority subjects and not as mysterious accumulation of

, then, help sustain power relations which work to subjugate the bodies of (mostly) vulnerable groups, including the young, women, and cultural and ethnic minorities ( Appadrai, 1996 ; Carrington, 1998 ).

’s ( 2004 , 2005 ) calls for public sociology were scholars who argued that this vision appropriated the traditions of, or ignored entirely, decades of publicly-engaged scholarship by minority activist scholars working in diverse (and often marginalized) disciplines (e.g.,  Collins, 2007 ; Glenn, 2007

Through religious difference, Woods utilized one of the key philosophical tenets of Buddhism, that of detachment, to unmoor from black hypersexual masculinity and attached himself to Kultida Woods, the two white women, and the nation as a son and model minority.

The purpose of this study was to examine the influence of job applicant sexual orientation on subsequent evaluations and hiring recommendations. Data were gathered from 106 students (48 men, 57 women) who participated in a 2 (applicant sexual orientation: heterosexual, sexual minority) × 2 (rater gender: female, male) × 2 (applicant gender: female, male) experiment related to the hiring of a personal trainer for a fitness organization. Analysis of variance indicated that sexual minority job applicants received poorer evaluations than did heterosexuals. These effects were moderated by the rater gender, as men provided harsher ratings of sexual minorities than did women. Finally, applicant ratings were reliably related to hiring recommendations. Results are discussed in terms of contributions to the literature, limitations, and future directions.

This study focused on attitudes and sexual prejudice as part of a larger project on inclusive practice in sport and physical activity settings. Questionnaires were administered to a large sample of undergraduate students and to selected samples of upper-level preprofessional students and a campus pride group to investigate attitudes toward gays and lesbians, and other minority groups. Attitude scores were in the middle range, with females more positive than males toward gay men. Evaluation Thermometer scores were generally positive, but markedly lower for gay men and lesbians than for other minority groups. Upper-level preprofessional students were more positive than other undergraduates, but still expressed negative attitudes toward lesbians and gay men. These results confirm persistent sexual prejudice, suggest that attention to sexual minorities is particularly important for effective diversity management, and underscore the need for continuing research and educational programs to enhance cultural competence among sport management professionals and future professionals.

Previous research has identified similar barriers for sport participation in women, racial minority, and low-income groups ( Amusa, Toriola, Onyewadume, & Dhaliwal, 2008 ; Casper, Bocarro, Kanters, & Floyd, 2011 ; Dollman & Lewis, 2010 ; Sawrikar & Muir, 2010 ).

The authors concluded that “there must be some other impediments that are rendering women and minorities less desirable to hire as the athletic director of an intercollegiate athletic department” (p. 44).
