McGhee, Paul E.; Duffey, Nelda S.
Journal of Cross-Cultural Psychology, v14 n1 p29-40 Mar 1983
When shown drawings that depicted children of different racial/ethnic groups as victims of a minor mishap, White children found it funnier to see children of other groups victimized in humor than children of their own group. Blacks and Mexican Americans had no humor preferences concerning the victim's racial affiliation. (Author/MJL)
