Abstract:

The research supports strongly the hypothesis that suggests subjects exposed to assertive films will display more punitive authority than those exposed to non-assertive films. This finding holds for supervisory behavior for both Blacks and Whites. Similarly, whether a supervisor was responding to a racially similar or different student also had a significant effect on behavior. The hypothesis that dealt with social ability was supported for White supervisors but only had marginal effects as that relates to Black supervisors.
