Reading Guide Anderson, Elijah. “The Police & the Black Male” in Streetwise (pp. 163-189) Duneier, Mitchell. “Talking to Women” in Sidewalk (pp. 188-217) 1. In the chapter titled “The Police and the Black Male,” Elijah Anderson (1990) notes that “In doing their job, the police often become willing parties” to the “general color-coding of the public environment” (190). How does this “color-coding” shape the “roles” young AfricanAmerican men play in the neighborhood?
2. Provide a detailed discussion of the stop-and-search scenario outlined by Elijah Anderson. In light of this scenario, why, according to Anderson, are African-American youth fearful of both mistaken identity and police harassment? Be sure to consider the process of “secondary deviance” when formulating your answer.
