Cultural Diversity

Some people have a fear of being alone so they find it hard or make it impossible for them to leave relationships where they are being abused. Most of them come from homes where they saw abuse or were abused when they were young. In the past there wasn’t any laws in place for domestic violence which made it nearly impossible to get help. Just recently thye have passed laws and created organization to help victims of domestic violence get help.

Chapter 7 Deviance:

Race and Ethnicity

Both race and ethnicity are strongly linked to crime rates, alough the reason are many and complex. Official stats indicate that 69.7 % of arrests for index crimes in 2006 involved white people . Howevery, arrests of African Americans are higher in proportion to their share of the general population. African Americans make up 12.3 % of the population of the United States but account for 29.4% of the arrests for property crimes(versus 68.2 % for whites) and 39.9% of arrests for violent crimes (versus58.5 % for whites)(Federal Bureau of Investgation,2007)
I feel this is because the officers doing the arrests of the African Americans are mostly white.

Sexual Violence: Date Rape

Its a common misunderstanding that rape is carried out by strangers this howevery is not true. Two thirds of all rapes involve people who know each other. Although rape is a physical attack, is also leaves emotional and psychological scars. One recent study found that about 20 % of a sample of high school girls in the United States reported being victims of sexual or physical violence inflicted by the boys they were dating(Dickinson,2001)
