August 2011
Enterprise/Salt Lake City;8/22/2011, Vol. 41 Issue 4, p23
The author addresses issues about race. He cites a police crackdown ordered by Philadelphia, Pennsylvania African-American Mayor Michael A. Nutter after mobs of young African Americans rampaged through Philadelphia committing violence. He explores the social dogma that disparities in outcomes between races can be due only to disparities in how these races are treated. He also notes the poverty rate among African American married couples in the U.S.
