That actually is a terribly conceived survey. The OP is concerned about recidivism, yet asks no questions in the survey about it. And the idea of an online survey to track something like that (or anything else, really) makes no sense anyway.

Also, popular media is aimed at a general audience, within certain demographic parameters. Presumably, there isn't much of a taste differential between black males of a certain age group who have been convicted more than once of a crime and those who haven't. So I'm not sure who the control population would be. Of course, in an online survey, there is no control group. So I guess never mind.
