Racial Differences in the Processes of Forgiveness

An interpersonal transgression can be a significant event in an individual's life. How individuals forgive after the transgression is something that has been studies for decades. However the literature has not considered diversity and racial differences in forgiveness. The current study considers racial differences in the process of forgiveness, and seeks to understand whether the race of the transgressor or the severity of the event plays a larger role in the processes of forgiveness.
