Black Political and Socioeconomic Status Attainment and the Direction of Lethal Violence: Comparing the Suicide of Young Black and White Males in U.S. Counties

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



Abstract:

The stream of violence theory posits that impulses toward violence are expressed inwardly in the form of suicide or outwardly in the form of homicide based on whether individuals attribute their circumstances to external or internal sources. The present study presents a test of the suicide component of the stream of violence theory on Black and white males in U.S. counties. The direction of lethal violence process is measured using county-level Black political and Black socioeconomic status attainment. Partial support is found for the stream of violence theory and the conditioning effects of Black political and socioeconomic status attainment. There is evidence to suggest that the sense of frustration and violent impulses generated by economic deprivation are directed inward in the form of suicide for Blacks in counties with higher Black political and socioeconomic status attainment and as a factor of the reduced availability of external sources at which to attribute the socioeconomic conditions of Blacks. In contrast, violent impulses are directed outward for whites in counties with higher Black political and socioeconomic status attainment as a factor of the ability of whites to locate external sources at which to attribute the socioeconomic conditions of whites.
