Abstract

This study examines the influence of target race and target gender on teasing behaviors. A study was conducted to examine the range of teasing topics elicited by participants based on friends/acquaintances that were or were not of the same race and gender. The results suggest that same-race targets elicit a greater amount of teasing topics than different-race targets. In addition, evidence shows that different-gender targets elicit more teasing topics than same-gender targets. The implications for these results and directions for future research are discussed.
