Summary
It is not hyperbole to proclaim that a crisis of legal legitimacy exists in the relationships between African Americans & the law & legal authorities & institutions that govern them. However, this legitimacy deficit has largely been documented through anecdotal evidence & a steady drumbeat of journalistic reports, but not rigorous scientific research. We posit that both experiences & in-group identities are commanding because they influence the ways in which black people process information, & in particular, the ways in which blacks react to the symbols of legal authority. Based on two nationally-representative samples, this text ties together four dominant theories of public opinion: legitimacy theory, social identity theory, theories of adulthood political socialization & learning through experience, & information processing theories
