The paper discusses whether white people feel afraid of a black person by virtue of his race and if so, what factors may contribute to that fear. The paper explains that specific events can trigger a person's fear of someone from a different race and this can be partly attributed to the media's handling of different races. The paper maintains that when the media begins to treat different races more equally, people will experience a reduced automatic reaction of fear when they encounter the opposite race.
