High-and low-prejudiced participants were presented with a lecture segment in which the race of the professor (White or Black) and lecture quality (high or low) were manipulated. Consistent with predictions, low-prejudiced participants were more extreme in their evaluations (more negative) and performed more poorly on test items when presented with an expectancy-violating low-quality Black lecturer. High-prejudiced participants were more extreme in their evaluations (more positive) and performed more poorly when presented with an expectancy-violating high-quality Black lecturer.
