Example text

This definitely seems to be the frame of choice in political science! Conclusion In this chapter, we reviewed some of the history of political psychology of Blacks as seen in the published works of the political science discipline. We examined the history of the political psychology of Blacks in political science discourse. We employed analyses of both major sources of this discourse: books and journal articles. Walton, Miller, and McCormick (1995) note that the academic disciplines mirror the nonacademic world’s sensibilities, including those regarding race.

As the name suggests, political psychology is primarily a combination of political science and psychology. “As a field of study, political psychology arose from the applied practice of trying to relate psychological phenomena to political reality” (Perez 2001, 348). As it has progressed, political psychology has drawn from a variety of subfields within psychology, including social, developmental and psychoanalytical (Sears 1989) and has incorporated aspects of political science, history, psychiatry, sociology, and legal studies (Iyengar 1993).

The race relations literature emphasizes and prioritizes cooperation over conflict. This literature asserts that racial peace as defined by Whites takes priority over racial justice, demands for racial equality, and the right to vote. Movements toward civil rights and voting rights by African Americans cannot afford to antagonize, anger, or push Whites into going any faster than they want to go. Hence, Whites must lead and be given the time to provide African Americans their constitutional rights.
