Description

Crime and Racial Constructions: Cultural Misinformation about African Americans in Media and Academia critically examines how the film industry and criminologists have constructed African Americans in their effort to explain observed race differences in crime. Of particular concern is how the images they paint of violent, out-of-control blacks result in hardline criminal justice policies.
