Inner-city black America is often stereotyped as a place of random violence; in fact, violence in the inner city is regulated through an informal but well-known code of the street. How you dress, talk, and behave can have life-or-death consequences, with young people particularly at risk.

Much has happened since the late 1990s, basically where the present edition leaves off (published 2001). Both Monster's Ball and Training Day, which saw Oscars going to Halle Berry and Denzel Washington, are controversial and require discussion in far more detail. (As the present edition went to press, a few words went in on each.) Bogle often speaks just on these films. Notable is that every year since 2001, at least one African American performer has been Oscar-nominat... View more info
