Cover Story (view full-size image): Experiences of racial discrimination are commonly measured at the individual level by self-report. Self-reported racial attitudes and beliefs are subject to various limitations, including social desirability bias and self-censorship, resulting in the risk of invalid exposure assessment. Additionally, individual-level experiences only provide a partial assessment of the experience of racial prejudice. Social media represents a relatively untapped resource for assessing public ideas and viewpoints, and has the potential to capture contextual-level racial climate. Social media therefore presents some advantages in illuminating national and place-specific sentiments about race/ethnicity, providing a “temperature” of the social climate related to race. This study is among the first to characterize the sentiments of tweets using race-related terms. View this paper
