Provide a 7 pages analysis while answering the following question: Ethnic Issues of Incarceration. Prepare this assignment according to the guidelines found in the APA Style Guide. An abstract is required. The US is a specific country from an ethnic perspective because it comprises numerous nations which are great in relation to the number of population, and there is a point of concern today that, for example, the Black is the nation which is the most subjected to criminal prosecution with the subsequent incarceration.
This paper will consider the phenomenon of incarceration in the US from the ethnic perspective in relation to three nations: the Black, the Hispanic and the non-Hispanic population. The point of concern here is also that men are considered to be criminals more often than women, and this set will be an object of this paper study.
The consideration of the topic mentioned will be done by means of information analysis from the national data sources. This data will provide an explanation of the fact of the racial division of incarceration and the prevalence of one category over the others. This information will also consider the geography of the incarceration, that is, which states and cities have the biggest rates and which categories in these areas are the most incarcerated ones.
McDaniel et al. state that the Black men make the biggest part out of the 100,000 incarcerated men, making the quantity of the incarcerated 3023, whereas there are 1238 Hispanic men and only 478 White men incarcerated per the same quantity mentioned. (McDaniel et al., 2013). The authors also emphasize that the ratio of incarcerated men aged between 20 and 34 years, that is, relatively young and capable of performing labor activity and usual social roles, has increased since the year 1980 within all the three mentioned ethnic categories, as of the data of 2008. (McDaniel et al., 2013). In this regard, the point of concern is that this growth has become very significant: in 1980, the White incarcerated men made only 0,6 percent, while the data of 2008 shows 1,8 per cent, that is, three times increase. the number of African American incarcerated men increased by 2 times – from 5,2 per cent in 1980 to 11,4 per cent in 2008. and the Hispanic male .incarceration has demonstrated the lowest increase  .- 3,7 per cent in 2008 against 2,3 per cent as compared to the year 1980.
