Study participants favor whites over blacks for Katrina relief aid
- Richard Morin, Washington Post
Saturday, June 10, 2006




Americans are more willing to provide extended government assistance to white victims of Hurricane Katrina than to African Americans and other minorities -- particularly blacks with darker skin.

Overall, the "penalty" for being black and a Katrina victim amounted to about $1,000, according to an online study by the Washington Post, washingtonpost.com and Shanto Iyengar, director of the Political Communication Lab at Stanford University.

More than 2,300 individuals participated in the latest experiment, which tested how much subconscious racial bias shapes attitudes toward disaster relief. The participants were skewed heavily toward Democrats and liberals -- only 12 percent identified as Republican. The sample, with many drawn from the Washington metropolitan area, was also highly educated -- 84 percent had at least a bachelor's degree.

Participants went to a Web site that featured a news article about the effect of the hurricane. A photo of an individual featured in the story accompanied the article.

But here's the trick: The race, gender and occupation of the featured person varied. Some participants read an article about a flood victim named Terry Miller who was depicted in the photo as a black man; others read the same item, except the Terry Miller in the photo was a white man, while in others, Terry became a black or a white woman. (The Latino victim was named Terry Medina.) In some photos, the skin tone was darker; in others, it was lighter.

After reading the article, participants were asked how much government aid hurricane victims should get for housing and general living expenses. For each type of assistance, participants could give from $200 to $1,200 per month, and from three months to a maximum of 18 months.

If race mattered, there would be a difference in the level of assistance favored by respondents who read an article about the white Terry Miller and the assistance favored by those who read about a black Terry Miller.

There was. People were willing to give assistance to a white victim, on average, for about 12 months. But for an African American victim, the average duration was a month shorter while the amount of aid was nearly the same, meaning that blacks would collect about $1,000 less than white victims.

Skin tone also mattered. A darker-skinned black person received about $100 a month less over a shorter time than a light-skinned white person, all other factors being equal -- a huge effect. Participants also were the least generous after reading an article on looting.

"These results suggest that news media coverage of natural disasters can shape the audience's response," Iyengar said. "Framing the disaster in ways that evoke racial stereotypes can make people less supportive of large-scale relief efforts."

As a fool I am GLAD I am NOT highly educated about matters of choosing who will SOCIALLY LIVE LONGER over a REAL HELLISH SITUATION.

Decision like this do fall on "ruthless" white and the 'highly educated'.

Oh well.

you mean the more "schooled" you are, the less tolerance for poor black/Afrikan people,ultimately you educate yourself,like we as people have always done.

Im not surprised... we have black people going to schools that are controlled by secret societies, it should be expected that a person would indirectly take on the prejudice attitudes as well whatever else those colleges would want you to accept

Who exactly is this article talking about?

Is it saying that less formally educated white people (for ex. po white trash) are more tolerant of poor Black people? How valid are the findings in this article?

In general, we need to be careful that this article is not interpreted to mean that Black people should not get college degrees or that somehow education ALONE makes you less tolerant.

I'm saying this because some of those Black people who don't think much of formal education will use this to argue that college educated (Black) people think they're "all that" and don't like poor Black people.

IMO, we need as many Black people as possible with AAS, Bachelors, Masters and Ph.Ds in EVERY subject area available. Having a college degree does NOT stop people from reading their own history and anything else they want to read.

Not saying that there are no formally educated poor Black people, but the less formal education you have these days, the more likely you are to BE poor, especially if you are Black .

I don't agree with too many of your views but I have to give you much props on this.

We cannot allow education to be devalued and expect to excel, or even survive as a free people.

Our issue is the "formal" education we're receiving doesn't teach us enough about our true selves to equip us properly to deal with other ethnic groups.

Whites have no such issue.

Think about it, the article is implying more highly educated whites will support their own group more than they will others.

What's so wrong with that?

If they did this study on only college educated blacks and it turned out we too would give the most money to blacks, less to mulattoes, and the least to pale-skinned whites, then our education would have worked to produce a consciousness for us just as it has for them.

We need solutions to restore the value (and quality) of formal education for black folk while figuring out how to deliver the missing ethnic consciousness via that education.
