Williams, Melvin D.
Ethnic Groups: An International Periodical of Ethnic Studies, v3 n1 p23-54 Dec 1980
Identifies "mainstream,""spurious," and "genuine" as differing life-styles among Black ghetto residents and discusses their ramifications. Describes the "genuine" style as an adaptive strategy in a materialistic society, holding, however, that because the "genuine" style is mandated by oppressive social institutions, it actually generates poverty.
