Racial Representation in Media About Intimate Partner Violence

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



Abstract:

Previous work exploring representations of race and crime in local news media has identified racial misrepresentation in the proportions of lawbreakers, law defenders, and targets of crime depicted in television news. The present work extends this literature by examining the racial representations of targets and perpetrators in the context of intimate partner violence (IPV) between heterosexual couples. Although Blacks and Whites experience victimization at similar rates, and Blacks are arrested at higher rates, media about intimate partner violence does not reflect reality.
