The African American are less likely to make it through school system, this have resulted in the poor educational system.

By 2010 that have increased to 50 percent.” “In 2010 there was 41 percent and today, the out of wedlock childbirth in the Black community sits at an astonishing 72 percent.” (YourBlackWorld).
The voices of Indigenous children are unheard and purposely ignored. This is portrayed through the literature of Birdie by Tracey Lindberg and Indian Horse by Richard Wagamese. Despite both apologies from Stephen Harper and Justin Trudeau, the government system to protect First Nations children appears to have detrimental effects on the life of a child. This is proven by young children turning to drugs in order to satisfy their growing pain, family members who abuse their children because they consume high amounts of alcohol, which has a negative impact on the child, and discriminatory behaviour by surrounding communities. To begin with, young children turning to drugs in order to satisfy their growing pain.
I wonder where this little boy is and is he an addict now or dead?? If you search male prostitution and the elite, you’ll see how young runaways have to prostitute themselves for food to eat and how they are preyed upon by married men in professional positions. The really sick and sad part of this story is how so many of them are abused to death and how they are abused by society in every way: by their families, the police, johns, foster care systems; by everyone they come into contact with. When you research child snuff films you go into the heart of the darkness and into Satanism. Not only are young, street boys raped and murdered routinely but if they somehow manage to get out of street life they are forever damaged by the memories and the trauma and have difficulty having a normal life.

This sparked a height in incarceration rates, especially those of black men. Through the system, Alexander believes we have pushed people into second class status, and therefore our criminal justice system remains unfair. The fifth theme is due to the lying, manipulation, subterfuge, and obfuscation of the American people. Alexander (2012), believes that from day one we have been lied to by our government. The war on drugs pushed people into fear, and therefore manipulated law enforcement to go after people of color.
A number of parents have suggested that children should not be convicted as adults for their crimes because children don’t have the same mentality as adults and act without reasoning of the consequences they have for committing such a crime. Children’s brains aren’t fully developed so they have a habit of imitating what they see in TV or from a role model they look up to. Children most of the time are forced to commit a crime by the friends they hang out with and are scared to walk away or say no. In the article “Kids Are Kids” the author states that “Today we are witness to criminal defendants - facing life sentences without parole - who cannot shave, still play with fire trucks, and love to act out scenes from TV or video
Other key factors associated with separation between siblings was that larger groups were often split up, if there was an age gap, between boy and girls. Another factor is that social workers did have harder times finding homes that are willing to open up to foster siblings. Waln Brown, Ph.D. stated in his analysis article, The psychological consequences of separating siblings in the foster care, “The experience of been separated from family and placed in the care of strangers leaves a bloody scab that may never quite heal.” (2017).

As a result, Yummy is a victim due to how the environment had changed him, from being a sweet boy who loves candy into a person who had joined a gang and started doing bad things, like shoplifting and killing. In fact, Growing Up in a Bad Neighborhood Does More Harm Than We Thought, by Justin Wolfers mentions, “It has long been clear that children from troubled neighborhoods have worse outcomes as adults. But it has been much harder to disentangle whether these neighborhoods cause the later disadvantage, or whether the hardships that lead families to bad neighborhoods are the problem.” (Wolfers) This points out that the environment children grow up in and things they see around will influence them. Living in a neighborhood that has troubled all the time will lead others to follow that same path. For example, Yummy lives in a neighborhood that is full of crimes, by seeing what others do causes Yummy to do the same.

Although, there are a ajority who do not develop such habits and good percentage still do. In the National Institute of Justice article, the author states, “Being abused or neglected as a child increases the likelihood of arrest as a juvenile by 59 percent, as an adult by 28 percent, and for a violent crime by 30 percent according to one study that looked at more than 1,500 cases over time.” They are more likely to partake in such activities because of the neglect and abuse from their previous situation. Getting a perminet record at a young ago tends to affect the person for years. It may have not been their fault and they probably turned their life around but because they continue to be neglected they do not see any harm in partaking in criminal activities. In the same article it was also stated that, “Researchers found that childhood maltreatment was a risk factor for officially recognized delinquency, violent self-reported delinquency and moderate self-reported delinquency.
