Communication messages in an Interracial/Interethnic Communication course at a University in the Midwest are the focus of this study. The research interprets and analyzes the use of a weblog as an instrument to study the relationship between communication and race in the classroom. A critical examination of the student’s written communication illustrates the positive impact of dialogue within the classroom. The research examines: 1) The transformational process of ineffective communication to effective communication when discussing racial issues in the classroom, 2) Examines students utilizing a weblog to expand dialogue on communication and race, and 3) The impact racial biases/views have on the effective communication process.
