Abstract: Existing literature investigates several aspects of policing as an outcome of group conflict, specifically minority group threat. Group conflict theories assert that white intolerance manifests in response to growing minority presence, which is perceived as a competitive threat to white political and economic interests (Green, Strolovich, & Wong, 1998, p. 373). In response to minority presence, the dominant group seeks to preserve its dominance through social control (Blalock, 1967). In particular, King (2007) explains that geographic areas with higher levels of minorities tend to experience higher levels of social control. As such, several studies (Campbell, Berk, & Fyfe, 1998; Holmes, 2000; Jacobs & O'Brien, 1998; Kane, 2002; Kane, 2003; Kane, Gustafson, & Bruell, 2013) demonstrate areas with higher levels of minorities experience higher levels of policing activities, including police deployment, misdemeanor arrests, use of physical, excessive, and deadly force, and other misconduct. This cross-sectional analysis uses 2010 data from the National Police Misconduct Statistics and Reporting Project (NPMSRP) to assess police misconduct against minorities as an outcome of minority group threat on the county level. The study utilizes the following indicators of minority group threat: percent black, percent Hispanic, demographic change, and economic indicators.

Abstract: Scholars of race and representation recognize that studies of representation must also assess the impact of representation on constituents' behavior and attitudes. Such a focus sheds light on the extent to which minority Americans view the American political
system as legitimate and the extent to which they view their own role in the political system as meaningful. Literature on ``minority political empowerment'' initially held an exclusive focus on black empowerment at the local level. Recent studies have expanded this focus to other levels of political representation and
now also to Latinos in the United States. Yet, these studies will largely focus on only one group vis-a-vis one type of representative. This paper expands on earlier studies of minority empowerment and representation by comparing white, black, and Latino
attitudes and behavior toward different types of racial
representation in Congress by utilizing data from the same source. The data used in this paper comes from the ANES between 1992 and 2000. The general findings show that Latinos are positively responsive to Latino representation in Congress and both black and white Americans are not positively or negatively responsive to either black or Latino representation in Congress.

"Layers of ethnicity: The effects of ethnic federalism, minority-majority districts, and minority concentration on the electoral success of ethnic minorities in Russia" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the Midwest Political Science Association 67th Annual National Conference, The Palmer House Hilton, Chicago, IL, Apr 02, 2009 Online <PDF>. 2018-09-20 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p362314_index.html>

Abstract: Studies on the US have shown that minority-majority districts increase the turnout of minority voters and the electoral success of minority candidates. However, few studies have explored how various forms of ethnic geography affect minority electoral politics. We address this issue by examining the effects of Russia’s multiple layers of ethnic geography on minority electoral behavior. Russia’s ethnic federalism makes it a particularly interesting case since this type of federal structure arguably has direct and indirect effects of its own. Historically, ethnic federalism has advanced minority elites in leadership positions and promoted minorities’ geographic concentration and resistance to assimilation. We use census and electoral data disaggregated to the raion-level (roughly equal to a US county) to analyze the voting behavior of specific ethnic groups. We also use a multilevel framework, which allows us to capture the extent of the variation in our dependent variables--voter turnout and minority vote share--that is explained by the various levels of analysis, including raions, electoral districts, and federal regions. Our initial findings suggest that each level of ethnic concentration has a mobilizing effect on minorities.

Abstract: Previous research has linked sexual orientation to disordered eating behaviors in women. However, this relationship has not been examined in women who identify as both racial minorities and sexual minorities. This study aims to bridge the gap in previous literature by exploring the relationship between racial and sexual minority status and disordered eating symptomology.
