Abstract:This study examines the cross-racial interactions of Students of Color and white students within the higher education classroom. Utilizing critical race theory, this study primarily focuses on the experiences and interactions of students of color and secondarily White students in a course centered on cross-racial dialogues. The extant intergroup dialogue literature documents voyeuristic listening within dialogues between privileged and oppressed groups as “an important concern”. Overall, this study uses critical discourse analysis and qualitative content analysis to investigate preliminary papers, final papers, and exit interviews to gain insight on the existence of voyeuristic listening instead, racial voyeurism within cross-racial intergroup dialogues. Furthermore, this study uses critical race theory to understand why racial voyeurism of Students of Color happens and how white discursive practices lead towards the dynamic. This study is not an interrogation of intergroup dialogue but how the effects of the permanence of racism take place within cross-racial interactions.
