Middle Eastern Typification of Terrorism and Support for Punitive National Policies

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

Micro-level tests of the racial threat hypothesis have focused on perceptions of crime that derive from a sense of a growing minority population, as well as the belief that those minorities are disproportionately represented among criminals, to determine whether these perceptions increase public punitiveness. Previous research confirms that one reason for the strong public support for harsh criminal justice measures is the common association that is made between black males and criminality. With the recent War on Terror and subsequent national security focus on individuals of Middle Eastern descent, it is notable that Americans also indicate strong support for invasive and harsh policies for addressing potential national security risks. Using nationwide survey data collected in the winter of 2007, I assess the extent to which specific crimes are perceived to be committed by Middle Easterners and use OLS regression to determine whether individuals who are more likely to stereotype Middle Easterners as terrorists are also more likely to endorse punitive crime control measures.
