New lab paper, led by Megan Earle (PhD student), explores the critical question of whether gains made by Black people come at a cost to White people. In particular we ask: as discrimination toward Black people has decreased, has discrimination against White people increased? This paper uses multiple datasets, including longitudinal and nationally representative data, and FBI data, to address this question empirically.
