Sex, Race, and Reactions to Injustice.
Persico, Barbara; And Others
The present study examines the reactions to injustice between individuals as a function of the race and sex of the subject. Two contrasting hypotheses derived from research on altruism and personality differences indicate that white females/black males and white males/black females differ in their response to inequity. The study supports the hypothesis based on personality differences; that black females and white males take greater action to correct an inequity when compared to both white females and black males. The implications of these results are discussed. (Author)
