Th is study investigated the extent to which ordinary race-thinking subscribes to these commitments. It also investigated the relationship between diﬀ erent conceptions of race and racial attitudes. Participants included 449 USA adults who completed an Internet survey. Unlike previous research, conceptions of race were assessed using concrete vignettes. Results indicate widespread rejection of the one-drop rule, as well as the use of a complex combination of ancestral, phenotypic, and social (and, therefore, non- essentialist)
