"Race salience" 10 years later: Misconceptions and unanswered questions in the investigation of juror bias

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



Abstract:

In two frequently-cited articles from 2000 and 2001, we offered the following conclusion: the influence of a defendant’s race on White mock jurors is more pronounced in interracial trials in which race remains a silent background issue than in trials involving racially-charged incidents. Though subsequent researchers have further explored this idea of “race salience,” the scope of the extant literature remains far narrower than many realize. We seek to clarify this and other misconceptions regarding “race salience” and jury decision-making, identifying in the process avenues for future research on the biasing influence of defendant race on juries.
