This chapter provides an overview of the empirical work that focuses on the causes and consequences of street code attitudes. Street families, in contrast, are less considerate of others and have a narrow insight of family and community. In addition, street families may have more difficulty coping with parenthood and living in financial deprivation, which creates frustration and a lack of patience toward others. The street code is just a set of attitudes or actions conducive to violence, but a deeply embedded cultural belief system resulting from decades of isolation, deprivation, racial discrimination. Anderson argues that the code of the street is a cultural orientation that is found in disadvantaged, and urban locales that consist of primarily African American residents. The importance of moderators, or variables that may strengthen the relationship between street code attitudes and violence, was detailed in Baron’s assessment of homeless youth.
