Crossing Boundaries

African American Inner City and European Migrant Youth

Edited by: Theron D. Cook, Flip Lindo, Maria I. Diedrich

Upon walking U.S. inner-city streets sooner or later you come upon groups of black kids wearing prison-style outfits; there is a boom box, and rap music. And inevitably you will hear the N-word. Upon entering a district housing migrants in any European city you will encounter almost identical scenes - youngsters dressed in prison style, the boom box, rap. Only most of the kids are of a "white" or olive complexion. They call themselves "Black albinos", "Wiggers" or "white N______."
