Overall APA style
I need 4 scholarly journal based articles on racial bias and criminals.

IV1: White and African Americans
IV2: attractiveness : We will Measure attractiveness by getting a group of 40 to rate photographs on a scale 1-10.
We asked XX to determine their level of attractiveness.
Average score of 8 is good
Lower than 4 is bad
DV: Severity, Danger, Accuracy
- We are measuring how dangerous they are. How accurate the conviction was and the severity of the crime. Measuring severity of crime and how successful they are as a criminal. We want higher score for ugly criminals and lower for attractiveness.
