Racial and Behavioral Cues in Black and White Children's Perceptions of Ambiguously Aggressive Acts.
Sagar, H. Andrew; Schofield, Janet Ward
Journal of Personality and Social Psychology, v39 n4 p590-98 Oct 1980
Black and White preadolescents rated ambiguously aggressive behaviors (AABs) as more mean and threatening when perpetrators were Black. Ratings of personal characteristics were generally determined by individual behavior, not by stereotypes. Blacks were rated as stronger than Whites. Whites tended to read threat into AABs and assume perpetrators were stronger than recipients. (Author/RH)
