Proposal for Structured Inequality of African American Men
Proposal for Structured Inequality of Incarcerated African American Men
For the proposal project, I chose scenario number three. This scenario consists of the large discrepancy of African American men incarcerated in the United States compared to Hispanic and White American men. According to the scenario “in 2003 about 10.4 of African American men between the ages of 25 to 29 were incarcerated, as compared to 2.4% of Hispanic men and 1.2% of non-Hispanic White men” (DeVry, 2014, p. 3).

As for African American, this group has communities that are populated with their group as well. This topic is important to cultural diversity because this is a particular group that are being singled out which is related to racial profiling. This is a diverse group that is being treated unfairly by law enforcement. They are a part of the minority with the majority is in control.
This paper will provide information dealing with the frequency, reasons, end results, and propose resolutions that can end this crisis. Especially, finding out what have caused this outrageous law enforcement practice against African American males, and investigate the influence of society and the family unit. Through scholarly research I plan to find out why African American men make up the majority of the prison population, and specifically in the age group of 25 to 29. I also plan to conduct research that depicts “incidents of criminal trials, convictions and incarcerations, prison sentences, and time served by ethnicity and race of African Americans, Hispanic, and Non- Hispanic” (DeVry, 2014). I expect to find information for the paper by using DeVry University Library to research for pertinent information to support the topic. Also, Google Scholar will be used to provide more data from the U.S. Justice Department.
