Nature and Context

There is no evidence that young Black males are more likely than White male youths to feel greater pressure to use violence if provoked. However, young Black males were more likely than White male youths to feel greater pressure to be physically and emotionally strong, play sports, and to dominate or control others. Research needs to move beyond idiosyncratic accounts of Black males’ cultural adaptations in order to explicate the developmental processes that affect how Black males living in a systemically racist society express their masculinity.
