Black Theology and Youths at Risk


David D. Mitchell

A violent and materialistic African-American youth has emerged from communities overrun by crime, drugs, and broken homes. Because of frustrated aspirations resulting from impoverished conditions, millions of youths are at risk to acquire what David D. Mitchell calls the Destructive Capitalistic Personality Complex (DCPC), which leads to destructive behavior patterns. This critical evaluation argues that Black theology and the Black church have failed these youths and calls for a joint plan to prevent at risk youths from acquiring the DCPC.
