The Myth of Black Violence.
Stark, Evan
Social Work, v38 n4 p485-90 Jul 1993
Examines widespread belief that blacks, and particularly young black inner-city males, are far more prone to violence than are whites. Considers family problems and Aid to Families with Dependent Children; racial stereotypes of welfare recipients; the underclass; victims of crime; and drug abuse. Concludes that, despite its weak foundation, myth of black violence has real and tragic consequences. (NB)
