They both view negative ethnic attitudes as the means of raising self-esteem, restoring confidence, and security for those who possess low self-esteem, by evaluating one's in-group, either British or middle class, as superior. The data from the Social Distance scale confirm the general belief of the Rogerian school (Sheerer, 1949; Stock, 1949; Rogers, 1951) that a person who is unsure about his own merit, who has low esteem for himself, tends to display less acceptance for others than a person who evaluates himself more positively.
