Beschreibung:

This handbook explores imbalance in the criminal justice system and how police interact with minorities. It addresses seven substantive areas: economics, education, criminal justice, race relations, health, mental health, families, youth and the elderly.
Part I: Introduction.- America's Racial Realities.- Do Current Race and Ethnicity Concepts Reflect a Changing America?.- Intergroup Dialogue: Race Still Matters.- Part II: Economics.- Wealth Building in Communities of Color.- Recent Employment Trends Among Black Men and Their Policy Implications.- Challenging the Conventional Understanding of American Poverty.- Part III: Education.- Interventions to Address Racial/Ethnic Disparities in School Discipline: Can Systems Reform be Race-Neutral?.- Exploring, Understanding and Closing the Achievement Gap(s): Efforts from Harlem to Homewood.- High School Quality and Race Differences in College Achievement.- Part IV: Special Topics: Family Matters: Strengthening the Fabric of Minority Families.- Aging and Health in Mexican Americans: Selected Findings from the Hispanic EPESE.- Racial Disproportionality in Prison.- Resetting Race.- Part V: Health: Disparities in Health Care for Minorities: An Ecological Perspective.- Considering the Role of Social Determinants of Health in Black-White Breast Cancer Disparities.- Understanding and Addressing Racial/Ethnic Disparities in Obesity.- Mental Health Indicators for African American Males.
As much as Americans believe in the promise of an egalitarian, color-blind society, the reality is far from that ideal. People of color consistently lag behind their white counterparts in key quality-of-life areas. Despite many significant gains, widespread structural inequalities continue to exist and thrive.
