Abstract

While much public attention is given to the crimes committed by black citizens, little is heard about the unlawful acts and practices that are being committed against black citizens. Professor and Mrs. Leroy Clark uncover several startling inequities in the present manner of administering laws to the residents of the ghetto community, and they thoroughly document their proposition that the rights of black people receive little real protection and even less public concern. As the situation becomes worse, Negroes are led to an ever-diminishing respect for the law. Inevitably, the Clarks explain, some Negroes respond to what they consider to be the violent effect of illegalities directed against them by bringing violence to the streets of their city.
