1. Thacker, Tommie. Racialized Reactions and Responses to September 11th, 2001.

Degree: MA, Arts and Sciences: Sociology, 2011, University of Cincinnati

A tragic event happened on September 11, 2001 when planes crashed into the World Trade Center and Pentagon, an event which most newspapers proclaimed was one of the most tragic events on American soil. The reactions from Americans were fear, anger, cries of war, and flag waving. Or were they? WEB Du Bois made the observation that African Americans and White Americans live in separate worlds. If this is still the case then there should be a different reaction between African Americans and White Americans even to this historical tragic event. This research compares the racial reactions between African Americans and White Americans for two weeks after the events of 9/11 and again a year later in 2002. The data were obtained from one Mainstream and one African American newspaper in each of three American cities (Atlanta, Chicago, and Los Angeles). The findings show that there were some significant differences between African Americans and White Americans in reactions to 9/11. Advisors/Committee Members: Linders, Annulla (Committee Chair).
