Previous research has indicated that African American women are at higher risk for experiencing IPV.

A community sample of 80 single, heterosexual, African American men between 18 and 29 years completed measures assessing sociodemographics, attitudes towards IPV, perceived ineffective couple conflict resolution, exposure to neighborhood violence, and IPV perpetration during the past 3 months.social structural theory posits that IPV is a conditioned response to “socially structured stress,” or stress attributed to social conditions such as low income and education, poverty, and unemployment.The inequity within socioeconomic positions are experienced by the marginalized as stressors that may increase their risk of violence.Hierarchical multiple linear regression analyses, with age, education, and public assistance as covariates, were conducted on 65 men who reported being in a main relationship.Couple conflict resolution and exposure to neighborhood violence moderated the relation between attitudes supporting IPV and IPV perpetration.
