One of the most significant challenges facing young black males is the issue of violence, which has been a prevalent issue in American society. Mass racial violence that targets black males has been manifested in most contexts. This include racial based conflict targeting young African American males. There is also a prevalent stereotype across American societies. Young African Americans are labeled as criminals.
They comprise the most significant number of people who are incarcerated because of their engagement in crime. In effect, these young black males have been victims of marginalization because of their close association with crime.
