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



Abstract:

This study examined White individuals’ (mis)identification of Middle Eastern- and Caucasian-looking men as portrayed in news stories about crime. Considering social identity theory, construal level theory, and the Arab/Muslim/Middle Eastern terrorist stereotype, this study predicted participants would correctly identify Caucasian-looking men and misidentify Middle Eastern-looking men as perpetrators. Results show that correct identification and misidentification of Caucasian-looking men is greater. Moderating variables are discussed. A new measure of attitudes toward Arabs and Muslims is recommended.
