Explicit Attitudes

A person’s conscious views toward people, objects, or concepts. That is, the person is aware of the feelings he or she holds in a certain context.

Example: His grandfather is unapologetically racist; the man makes no attempt to hide his negative views toward members of various ethnic minorities.
