A research project being conducted by David Ponton III (PI) and Elizabeth Korver-Glenn (Co-I), entitled "Colorism, Police Killings, and Anti-Black Discipline" has been selected as one of the recipients of the USF Blackness and Anti-Black Racism Grant.
The project will study police killings and intra-racial disparities based on skin color and facial features. Studies show that racial disparities in educational attainment, income, employment, health care and criminal court sentencing persist in the United States and that Black people with darker skin and stereotyped “African” facial features fare even worse compared to lighter skinned counterparts with stereotypical European facial features.
