dc.description.abstractDeveloping what W.E.B. DuBois termed "double-consciousness" was African Americans' response to dealing with daily racial inequalities experienced in this country. In certain respects, obstacles Hispanic men are having to overcome once in America bear a resemblance to what is commonly referred to as the "plight of the black man." For this paper I chose to do a comparative study between Hispanic and African American men to explore differences on several issues such as assimilation, perceptions of law enforcement, and socioeconomic status. Although the story of Hispanic immigration is not as violent as African American history, as a black man myself I was curious to know if there were similar circumstances in both cases that would yield similar results. I questioned whether or not Hispanic males were finding the need to develop front stage and back stage personalities, or a double consciousness, to assimilate into American society.eng
