Abstract

Beliefs about black males' sexuality are pervasive in this society, but little studied. This investigation examined white subjects' perceptions of black and white characters in sexually explicit stories, some of which depicted interracial pairings. The perceptions were then examined in relationship to authoritarianism and sexual repression. Overall results suggest that black males are stereotyped as more potent than white males. The theoretical implications of this finding are discussed.
