9780761810186: African-American Males and the Law: Cases and Material

African-American Males and the Law analyzes the plight of African-American males in the United States and identifies how their status is directly or indirectly impacted by the justice system. The author initiates a dialogue on legal issues facing African-American males by addressing the stereotypical biases that African-American males face, and exposing the challenges surrounding their accessing the best possible education. He carefully delves into the legal aspects surrounding many of the popular biases and discriminations present in American society; including those surrounding employment and health care, and in particular within the legal system regarding treatment by police, in the courtroom, and within prisons. The author depicts the adverse and disproportionate impact of the American justice system on African-American males, since it seems that at each step of the system from arrest, incarceration and sentencing, to the death penalty, black males appear to be selectively prosecuted without conscience, remorse, or constitutional protection.
