Social Disorganization in West Chicago: How crack cocaine sentencing disparities are linked to social disorganization in West Chicago.
|dc.description.abstract||This study compares community social disorganization caused by excessive incarceration in two communities of West and North Chicago. This study attempts to confirm the hypothesis that African American communities will experience higher instances in crime and lower economic growth rates than majority white neighborhoods, because of the inequitably enforcement of crack cocaine mandatory minimum sentencing. This study expects that the majority African American community of West Chicago should experience larger levels of social disorganization than North Chicago a primarily white area of the city.||en_US|
