Abstract:

The present study utilizes a social cognitive framework in experimentally investigating the relationship between viewers' social judgments and exposure to television news portrayals that intersect race and violent crime. Results revealed significant differences between women and men in evaluations of criminal suspects presented in these TV news reports of rape. However, only minimal support was found in support of the prediction that the race of the perpetrator would be associated with allocations of prison sentences. The hypothesized interaction between sex of participant and suspect race was not supported. The implications and limitations of these findings are discussed.
