Abstract

Given the potential negative effects of vicarious racism, we sought to examine the impact of vicarious racism via the media on college students of color. Using a sample of 217 college students of color, we analyzed positive and negative affect and craving for alcohol and marijuana before and after exposure to media stimuli. Split-plot analysis of variance results revealed a statistically significant interaction effect between time and group for negative affect, but not cravings for substances.
