Building on research indicating that the denial of uniquely human emotions is tantamount to infra-humanization, a study assessed whether liberal and conservative Caucasian participants would attribute uniquely human emotions differently to a Hispanic versus Caucasian target after a hurricane. Results showed that whereas participants who self-identified as liberal did not attribute uniquely human emotions differently to the two targets, those self-identifying as conservatives assigned significantly less uniquely human emotions, but an equal number of nonuniquely human emotions, to the Hispanic target. This infra-humanization was also associated with attitudes about what type of aid should be provided to the family members, although the evidence in this regard is not conclusive.

Abstract

Building on research indicating that the denial of uniquely human emotions is tantamount to infra-humanization, a study assessed whether liberal and conservative Caucasian participants would attribute uniquely human emotions differently to a Hispanic versus Caucasian target after a hurricane. Results showed that whereas participants who self-identified as liberal did not attribute uniquely human emotions differently to the two targets, those self-identifying as conservatives assigned significantly less uniquely human emotions, but an equal number of nonuniquely human emotions, to the Hispanic target. This infra-humanization was also associated with attitudes about what type of aid should be provided to the family members, although the evidence in this regard is not conclusive.
