Stereotypical character evidence: A form of racial priming?

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



Abstract:

Legal scholars argue that character evidence can provide a “backdoor” to introduce stereotype-consistent traits and behaviors which can prime race and lead to more negative judgments about minority defendants. In this study, participants read about a trial involving a White, Black, or Latino defendant. They then rated the impact of positive and negative character traits that were stereotypically associated with one of those racial groups. Regardless of stereotypicality, negative character evidence was associated with higher guilt. Positive character evidence often had a stronger positive impact on minority defendants, although a few positive stereotypes were associated with greater guilt.
