Paper Abstract

The Silence of the White Majority

            Why do the majority of White Americans remain silent about the obvious and well documented inequalities in the criminal justice system?  Does the silence of most White Americans in regards to our biased criminal justice system indicate that most of these people are racists?  Or does their silence simply mean they are indifferent to the problems of inequality in our judicial system?  Perhaps an explanation of this silence can be forwarded by Elizabeth Noelle-Neumann’s imperfect “Spiral of Silence Theory” (SOS).   “This theory, as formulated by Noelle-Neumann, suggests that with respect to issues that are morally laden and controversial, people refrain from expressing opinions they perceive are or will be shared by a minority of the public.  This process is thought to occur because individuals fear isolation from the broader society” (Moy, Domke, & Stamm, 2001, p.7).
