[citation][nom]ProDigit80[/nom]Why is the criminality rate so high amongst the afro american population?In Hollywood Florida we see constantly things on the news,and only very occasional it's a Hispanic or white guy.Out of all the news I see here, on average 2 whites, 7 hispanics, and almost 41 afro americans hit the news in crime out of 50 news articles![/citation]
There are so many factors making this the case. There are a lot of socio-economic factors behind this. Statistically, there are more minorities in most American prisons than "white" folks. Some of this comes down to cultural differences, and the general trend of higher levels of poverty (and therefore lesser education) among minority groups. This is not at all to say minorities cannot excel in this country (Michael Jackson, Barrack Obama, Colin Powell, etc).
However, because of these vast socio-economic disadvantages, many minority groups end up with higher divorce & single parent situations, which leads to less parenting/discipline, and potential psychological issues with children.
In turn, this results in a society who's children turn to gangs, drugs, violence, and such things because they aren't properly equipped not to do such.
