Racial stereotyping and rape myths are a part of our social consciousness that may potentially affect the decisions people make regarding sexually coercive situations. In rape situations, the perpetrators' and victims' race play a part in whether they are believed, prosecuted, and in their sentencing. In this study, the names of the perpetrator and victim in a vignette depicting a rape were varied in an attempt to subtly activate racially-based stereotypes. Results indicated that participants endorsed higher levels of victim blame and general rape myth endorsement when the perpetrator was identified with a stereotypically "white" name.

In many pathological disorders studied in the field of psychology, the construct of social support can be linked to not only predicting factors, but effective treatment outcomes as well. The idea of social support has varying levels, from an adequate amount, to none at all. In this analysis of previously collected data (Kessler, 2000), we hypothesize that marijuana users will evidence a higher rate of use if they identify as having more social support from friends rather than relatives. Additionally, we expect that female users will evidence higher rates of use, than male users. The role of friends and family of marijuana users is pivotal in addressing the problems of marijuana usage. Much of the past literature has attempted to break down the internal components of the social networks of the user, with respects to gender. Female users tend to have larger support systems than male users (Wills, Resko, Ainette, Mendoza, 2004). This project will examine the make up of the user's social support system and the severity marijuana use.
