Summary This study analyzed the relationship between experienced racial microaggressions, their effects on the self-efficacy of Latinos, and how workplace racism might have increased the negative effects of the racial microaggressions. For this study, 102 students from a Southern California university were surveyed and a Multiple Regression statistical equation was used to analyze the data. The researcher hypothesized that the experience of racial microaggressions would be negatively correlated with a person's self-efficacy and that the experience of racism at work would increase the predictability of low self-efficacy due to microaggressions. However, the results indicated a much different outcome. It was found that there was no relationship between the experience of racial microaggressions and self-efficacy and that the experience of racism at work had no significant change on that relationship. This is not to infer that Latinos do not experience racism and its negative effects. Instead, it might suggest that the interplay between microaggressions, self-efficacy, and work experience may be more complex than previously thought.
