@DrProfessor: Gee I was grumpy last night, sorry for being rude. I have to stop taking all those "grumpy pills" eh?
You link costs $36 dollars But I get the idea.
I think drugs and BOOZE are the biggest reasons people are poor, and the main motivator for crimes. Rates of substance abuse vary from group to group, and pretending "group X" doesn't have a problem isn`t going to help them.
There have been "ethnic" gangs since the dawn of time, it`s got nothing to do with skin colour and everything to do with "lifestyle choices".
I might only be able to access it because my college has an account with the JSTOR website, but essentially the paper examines the question of whther similar communities produce similar crime rates refardless of race. It`s a pretty thick read, but it backs up what I`ve been saying.
