Raiford, Gilbert L.
Journal of Intergroup Relations, v14 n4 p29-37 Win 1986-87
Analyzes the causes and effects of changes in the family of American Blacks. Identifies persistent, institutional racism as the primary cause for the plight of Black male youths. Classifies the latter into three groups: (1) the small percentage who attain a career; (2) the 51% who steadily seek work and rarely succeed; and (3) the displaced and homeless. (KH)
