The study was conducted online with more than 1, participants from the United States who were asked whether 41 positive or negative stereotypical attributes such as hostile, sexually promiscuous, or determined were associated with different races or genders. Participants were told that their responses were not an admission that they believed these stereotypes so they would answer honestly.
‘the most important decision’
Some participants were asked about stereotypical attributes just for men and women or for Black people or White people. Then other groups were asked about a combination of race and gender Black women, Black men, White women, and White men.
The clustering of the responses showed how Black women were viewed in relation to the other groups. The typical woman was considered to be much more similar to a typical White woman than a typical Black woman.
Black women and Black men also were considered to be more similar to each other than to White women or White men. The underdifferentiation of Black women from Black men may help explain why Black women face similar rates of racial disparities in traffic stops and arrests, but antiracist movements often focus on Black men in the fight against police brutality, said Josh Pasek, PhD, one of the researchers on the study and associate professor of communication studies and faculty associate in the Center for Political Studies at the University of Michigan.
Arbery, a year-old Black man, was shot dead in February after being chased by three White men as he jogged through a neighborhood in Brunswick, Georgia. Taylor, a year-old Black woman was shot and killed by police in her Louisville, Kentucky, apartment in March.
Floyd, a year-old Black man was killed during an arrest in Minneapolis in May. His death set off protests across the country. Other studies have found that Black women and girls are more associated with threat and danger than are White women and girls.
Feminist movements that focus only on issues that predominantly affect White women without addressing racialized sexism ignore the needs of Black women, who face higher rates of police abuses, including sexual violence, Coles said. research also has found that Black women experience much higher rates of domestic and sexual abuse from partners than White women, and Black women are less likely to report this violence than White women.
Feminist and antiracist movements should include Black women in leadership roles and advocate for the rights of Black women, Coles said. Translational Issues in Psychological Science.
