Caucasian Viewers' Memory of Black and White Criminal Suspects in the News.
Oliver, Mary Beth
Journal of Communication, v49 n3 p46-60 Sum 1999
Finds that, over time, undergraduate students who had seen a Caucasian murder suspect in an experimental news story were increasingly likely to mistakenly identify African Americans as the murder suspect they had seen. Finds that endorsement of anti-Black attitudes was associated with increases in misidentification of African-American photographs and with decreases in misidentification of Caucasian photographs.
