Divergent Social Worlds

Based on the theory and research from all of these readings discuss reasons for why Latino neighborhoods tend to have lower crime rates than black neighborhoods despite the fact that these are both minority groups with similar percentages of the US

 

 

 

In Divergent Social Worlds Peterson and Krivo focus most heavily on differences between black and white neighborhoods. However they also find that Latino neighborhoods tend to have higher crime rates than white neighborhoods though not as high as black neighborhoods. Likewise the article that we read about immigrant concentration and the background notes that I provided explained that neighborhoods with high concentrations of Latino immigrants tend to have much lower crime rates than would be expected based on their socioeconomic status. Based on the theory and research from all of these readings discuss reasons for why Latino neighborhoods tend to have lower crime rates than black neighborhoods despite the fact that these are both minority groups with similar percentages of the US population? Again I am not asking for your personal opinion. Draw on the research to answer the question. Please reference Ruth d. Peterson divergent social
