Aside from the intrinsic merit of Dr. Shirley V. Brown's “Symbolic interaction and Black Mental Health,…” the paper raises several important corollary issues that need extensive investigation; (1) the effects of one's self-concept upon how he or she views others; (2) the negligible effects of affirmative action programs; (3) the adverse effects of public school integration on blacks; (4) the validity of the assumption that schools in predominantly black neighborhoods are inherently inferior; and (5) the insidious notion that mainstreaming is both possible and desirable.
