Notes: "This study by the Georgetown Law Center on Poverty and Inequality provides--for the first time--data showing that adults view Black girls as less innocent and more adult-like than their white peers, especially in the age range of 5-14. The perception of Black girls as less innocent may contribute to harsher punishment by educators and school resource officers. Furthermore, the view that Black girls need less nurturing, protection, and support and are more independent may translate into fewer leadership and mentorship opportunities in schools. The perception of Black girls as less innocent and more adult-like may contribute to more punitive exercise of discretion by those in positions of authority, greater use of force, and harsher penalties."
