Many young black males are being arrested, because of the lack of parenting, the community they are being raised in, and peer pressure. But, the number one reason for their actions is the lack of a male influence. Many young men lack the parenting of their father. Many young black men reach out for that attention by running out to the streets. The men in the streets get into the young men minds and show the drug and alcohol culture, fast money, clothes, and cars. From there the young men lives go downhill, forming barriers that will eventually make it hard for them to get back on track. That is why society today expresses that black men need to take responsibility and raise their kids, especially their sons. The lack of parenting can affect the young men, to when they have their own kids they will also lack in their responsibilities. Young black males then find it hard to stay out of jail .They go the first time. They continue to hold in the pain of not having their fathers around, which makes them continue to commit crimes. A solution involving elderly black males is presented.
