Racial Resentment and Attitudes Toward the Use of Force by Police: An Over-Time Trend Analysis.

 

The attitude toward police brutality is widely divided by their attitudes toward minorities. Previous findings support that perceptions toward police brutality toward minorities are racialized. In this article, two interesting results come out: first, whites’ beliefs toward race and racial inequality is highly correlated with their attitudes toward police brutality; second, the correlation between these two factors still constant. Reflecting from this article, we may rethink a new method to improve police brutality.
