Sample text

Since the colonial era, America has undergone dramatic changes in the phenotype of its population, but its racist history is acted out against black males in other no less insidious ways. This is because black males are located on the extreme opposite end of the racial equation, attributed to their gender and dark skin. A nation that once viewed itself as “white” is today experiencing a major shift in the ratio between dark- and light-skinned people that will likely carry on into the foreseeable future.

The oppression of dark-skinned populations that can be attributed to racism is a much too simplistic explanation without giving psychological account of those so inclined. Following World War II, sociologists at the University of CaliforniaBerkeley investigated the notion of a person-centered hypothesis, which resulted in a detailed account of the racist psyche. Researchers concluded that there is a specific personality type that is predisposed to rigidity and group hierarchical authority, hence an authoritarian personality.
