The Sexual Stereotype of the Black Male.
Davis, Gary L.; Cross, Herbert J.
This paper presents the results of a study to examine the existence of sexual stereotyping of black males by white college students. Subjects were 180 male and 180 female white undergraduates; they were tested in sexually segregated groups. Each read one of three types of pornographic stories (hard-core, erotic realism, or sexual fantasy). The male partner was black in half of the stories. Subjects rated the story characters and were asked to do a figure drawing of a nude black male and a nude white male. Overall results suggest that black males are stereotyped as more potent and sexual than whites. (Author/PFS)
