CJ 325 - Race, Ethnicity, and Crime


Analysis of the relationship between race and ethnicity with crime based on the involvement of racial minorities in crime and in the criminal justice system. Addresses the role of racism in theories of crime and in American law and to the treatment of minorities by the various components of the criminal justice system and the differentials in offending, processing, victimization, and employment in criminal justice agencies. “Race” and “crime” are examined as “social constructs” which have acquired their meaning through the interaction of human groups within social and historical contexts.
