Social Problems
Sociologists use the term social problems to refer to social conditions that damage society’s well-
being such as racism, robbery, and crime. It emphasizes the fact that some conditions need to be viewed
as social problems. Robbery and violence have over the years been on record as some of the common
social problems. In my opinion, the most common social problem in our societies today is a crime. A lot
of gangs have over the years caused chaos in various societies. As the level of unemployment keeps
rising, a lot of young people join these gangs and engage in various crimes to make money for a living.
Drug abuse has also taken a toll in our societies giving a lot of people an early exposure to violence and
crime at an early age.
Social problems are closely related to social justice because social problems in some cases lead to
various injustices. An example could be seen in cases where cops decide to entertain criminal activities
by taking bribes from street gangs. In cases where these gangs are reported to the authority little or no
efforts are directed towards arresting them. This deprives society of social justice and also encourages
these gangs to perpetrate more crimes.
