Previously conducted literature on African American youth, especially the males, have been branded as violent, drug addicts, uneducable, deficient, hostile and unethical among other names (Greenberg et al, 2003). The males within the African American community were said to drop out at a rate lower than their female counterparts (Jensen, 2008). Their dropping out rate stands at 19.9% whereas the women’s rate stands at 11.1%. High poverty levels have been the strongest reason for drop outs among the African American population within the United States of America (Stegelin, 2004). In the year 2007, the NCES statistical estimates showed that the dropout rates among black students living in the lower quartiles of the black society were seven times greater than those from upper quartiles(Bogenschneider, 2005). Their figure as per the NCES stands at 16.4% compared to the richer students whose values stand at 2.2%. Previous literature also indicates that the high dropout rates are very dependent on the students surrounding that witnesses high poverty levels. For example, in America, 80% of the high schools that have their senior classes containing less than 60% of the students who joined their respective courses due to dropping out are found in the south, north and western parts of the nation. The schools form just about 12% of the high schools within the country but are in total thought to contribute over a half of the black students who drop out from the institutions.
