BACKGROUND INFO 	
___________________________________________________________________________________________________________________	
This script implements the Schedule of Racist Events (SRE), a questionnaire to assess 
the racial discrimination in the lives of African Americans by Landrine & Klonoff (1996).

Reference:
Landrine, H.,& Klonoff, E. A. (1996). The Schedule of Racist Events: A measure of racist discrimination
and a study of its negative physical and mental health consequences. Journal of
Black Psychology, 22(2), 144-168.

OVERVIEW
___________________________________________________________________________________________________________________	

Landrine & Klonoff (1996) describe the SRE as follows:

"The Schedule of Racist Events (SRE) is an 18-item self report inventory that assesses the frequency 
of racist discrimination (specific, stressful racist events) in the past (recent racist events) and 
in one's entire life (lifetime racist events) and  measures the extent to which this discrimination 
was evaluated (appraised) as stressful (appraised racist events)."

The items are asses on the following scale:
Select '1' = If this has NEVER happened to you
Select '2' = If this has happened ONCE IN A WHILE (less than 10% of the time)
Select '3' = If this has happened SOMETIMES (10%-25% of the time)
Select '4' = If this has happened A LOT (26%-49% of the time)
Select '5' = If this has happened MOST OF THE TIME (50%-70% of the time)
Select '6' = If this has happened ALMOST ALL THE TIME (more than 70% of the time)"
