Research examining romantic relationships with individuals in the same versus different social groups.
Do women percieve that race affects their experiences as women? Do they think this differs for women of other races? 560 Black, East Asian, and White women described how race influences their own and other-race women’s experiences. Preliminary observations suggest differences that will be formally tested, e.g., Black and East Asian women feel stereotyped as strong or feminine, respectively.
Black men’s social invisibility may fluctuate across contexts. Two studies test women’s memory for smiling and neutral Black and White male faces as a function of a self-protection goal. We anticipate that self-protection will increase memory for Black men – especially when their expression is neutral.
