Punished: Policing the Lives of Black and Latino Boys by Victor M. Rios, a former gang member who went on to get a PhD at UC-Berkeley, explains the struggles of youth of color to come of age amidst issues with poverty, violence, and institutionalized racism. These problems begin at a young level with elementary school teachers labeling them as “dangerous,” and this translates to the school-to-prison pipeline. Rios calls this the “youth control complex” and argues that we need social programs and positive reinforcement to solve these problems.
