Group identity is especially salient for members of minority groups, and studies show that they prefer content featuring members of their minority in-groups in the media (Appiah, , Appiah, , Fujioka. Essentially, group members' attributions tend to favor the in-group. This finding has implications for understanding other social psychological topics, such as the development and persistence of out-group stereotypes. Attribution biases in intergroup relations are observed as early as childhood. conflict and possess negative stereotypes of each other and when racial and ethnic differences covary with national and socioeconomic differences.
