Examining the Influence of Race on the Presentation of Femicide in the News: Does Perpetrator Race, Victim Race or Racial Dyad Matter?

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



Abstract:

The news media play a substantial role in shaping society’s perception of social issues, including domestic violence. At the same time, prior literature suggests that media representations of crime and violence may differ depending on the race of the victim and/or the perpetrator. To date, minimal research has been conducted examining the potential influence of race on how the news media frame stories of femicide. The present research uses both quantitative and qualitative content analysis to compare newspaper articles of 67 femicide cases involving Black perpetrators and 67 femicide cases involving White perpetrators. Cases were analyzed to determine if different media frames were used to portray cases with Black perpetrators and Black victims, cases with White perpetrators and White victims, and/or cases involving inter-racial couples. Findings outline significant differences in media frames dependent upon the race of victims and perpetrators. Implications for societal perceptions of femicide among Blacks and Whites are discussed.
