Hardcover Description:
This critical analysis looks at the dire state of African American males and the tough challenges they face daily. Providing a holistic look at the educational, penal, and drug industries, this book condemns the institutions and standards that have declared war on black men. Why is there such a disparity between punishments for crack and cocaine? Why is 91 percent of the African American prison population illiterate? What are the effects of rampant racial profiling? Hope is provided with a discussion of institutions that have successfully developed African American men.
