Black Violence, White Violence: Crime and Racialization

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



Abstract:

Criminologists have long explained high rates of black-on-black violence by racializing homicides and assaults committed by African-Americans. This has meant assigning some black-specific trait (e.g., displaced racial aggression, disputatious black subcultures of violence,etc.) to black males to account for their disproportionate involvement in violence. By contrast, white-on-white violence has remained unraced in that there has been no corresponding tendency to explain white homicides and assaults by identifying white-specific traits that make whites prone to violence. In fact, when criminologists analyze homicides and assaults committed by whites, they typically do not consider race at all. Instead they focus on nonracial variables like gender, age, region and social class. In this paper, I consider whether black-on-black violence should likewise be unraced by looking at nonracial variables like gender, age and social class.
