Labeling Minority Males

Similar to the prison system, the statistics for behavioral issues are disproportionately overpowered by Black and Latino males. Nearly 50 percent of Black male and 29.6 percent of Latino male students from grades 6-12 were suspended from school in 2011; compared to 21.3 percent of their White male peers. Furthermore, Black boys had been expelled 13 times more than that of white boys.
