Black to white relationship provides a very pertinent context for understanding how power relationships reinforce through numerous societal and cultural stereotypes and bias. Research findings suggest is that African American children often accept the beliefs, practices and inherent values of the dominant white societal groups. This could be dangerous because children may develop and propagate negative stereotype and opinion about their own race, culture and beliefs. The 1944 classic written by Gunnar Myrdal (An American Dilemma) has provided us a great start to understand the practical theory of the now famous "The War on Poverty". Focused specially on the racism in the US, the author argued that African Americans often are trapped in a "cycle of poverty" that may eventually lead to the development of unwanted stereotypes and bias.According to the author, a number of African Americans have little access to high quality education that may result in reduced employment options and eventual poverty and life of hopelessness. This general belief may have led to the stereotypic thinking that African Americans are lazy and that they cannot work well for any jobs. This bias may also result in a vicious cycle of poverty. Federal and state governmental programs like Head Start and Affirmative Action were successful in assisting those people enrolled in public institutions.
