198 Words1 Page
Each individual differs from another, yet human beings have manufactured the idea of race and separate sub-cultures in order to create a system that benefits the construction of explanations for numerous social anomalies. Although, each person has a particular set of ideals, morals, and experiences, the desire to create a profile for the abundance of criminal activity has allowed a group of elites to create the concept of sub-cultures that endorse violence. As a result certain ethnical groups are portrayed as being marked by a sub-culture of anarchy and poverty. Robert D. Crutchfield, a professor in the Department of Sociology at the University of Washington, explores the manifestation and the philosophy that is incorporated in order to justify why certain races are believed to harbor pro-crime norms and values.
