  Examining police/black relations: what's in a story?
Titel: Examining police/black relations: what's in a story?
Auteur: Britton, Nadia Joanne
Verschenen in: Ethnic and racial studies
Paginering: Jaargang 23 (2000) nr. 4 pagina's 692-711
Jaar: 2000-07-01
Inhoud: This article presents evidence from a detailed qualitative study to demonstrate the significance of personal knowledge to black people's understanding of police/black relations. It explains how the stories told by respondents to illustrate their views revealed that previous explanations of the relationship have over-stressed the role of the black community and underplayed the importance of personal experiences in helping to form the perspectives of black people. The article outlines three central assumed truths contained within the stories, each of which leads to the conclusion that policing is irrefutably racialized. It is argued that the stories are underpinned by a dominant narrative of racialized policing which has grave implications for efforts to address the mistrust of the police evident among the black population. In highlighting the social role of stories, the article draws attention to their analytical significance in sociological analysis. It also draws attention to the importance of increasing the focus on the experiences and views of those on the receiving end of criminal justice in order to improve our understanding of everyday processes of racialization.
