- A study by Andrew Penner, sociology associate professor, is featured in the OC Weekly June 19, 2015
From the OC Weekly:
"We know race to be a multidimensional, extremely complex dividing line in our society, with some people identifying one way while others may perceive them differently," explains Andrew Penner, a UCI sociologist and study co-author. "When it comes to explaining the racial disparity in arrest rates, we find that perception by others appears to play a more important role."
