Racism & Classism

Early on in my research about breed specific legislation, it became increasingly understood the laws were never really designed to specifically target the dogs, but instead born in the 1980s to be used as a tool to conduct what otherwise would be illegal searches on suspect individuals, often targeting protected classes of people in urban communities. The laws were overwhelmingly enforced in low-income households and/or black neighborhoods.
