Deviance and Change in the Urban African American Community.
Jackson, Jerome E.
Western Journal of Black Studies, v16 n3 p123-31 Fall 1992
Examines the present turmoil in disadvantaged communities, arguing that many urban problems result from historic mistreatment of slum dwellers, especially non-whites. Disproportionate representation of young African-American males in prison and the justice system does not occur by chance. As unequal access to opportunity continues, the underclass will increase.
