Explorations in Ethnic Studies
This issue of the journal contains a variety of articles which are related yet diverse in their focus on topics concerning ethnic studies. In the first article, David Hood and Ruey-Lin Lin extend previous research on sentencing disparities in the state of Washington for Hispanics, Native Americans and Whites. Even after the creation of the Sentencing Reform Act, a decade later, sentencing disparities exist. In her research on the Los Angeles riots of 1992, Theresa Martinez analyzes the role of rap music as being a reflection and/or cause of inner city despair, hopelessness and anger.
