Code of the Street and African-American Adolescent Violence
Barry Leonard (ed)
The “code of the street” theory presents an explanation for high rates of violence among African-Amer. (AA) adolescents. Observing life in a Phila. AA neighborhood, Anderson saw that economic disadvantage, separation from mainstream society, and racial discrim. encountered by some AA adolescents may lead to anti-social attitudes and to violent behavior. This report explores this thesis; researchers conducted repeated interviews with more than 800 AA adolescents (ages 10 to 15) and their primary caregivers. The researchers looked for developmental relationships between neighborhood and family characteristics, reported experiences with racial discrim., expressed street code values and self-reported violent behavior in young people.
