This article seeks to synthesize and apply White racial identity theory
and concomitant research to the interaction between athletic and
racial identity, specifically as it relates to the experiential variations of
how race impacts White athletes within the college sport environment. White dialectics, or the tensions that White Americans experience as dominant social group members, serve as the guiding
theoretical framework and provide a theoretical lens through which
the experience of White college athletes is examined at each distinct
dialectic. Through this article, the application of White dialectics
offers a theoretical foundation for developing a better understanding
of how White college athletes not only make sense of their racial
identity, but also understand their racialized experiences within intercollegiate athletics.
