For a long tine there has been certain hypothesis held against the Negro that the writer has often wondered whether they are really true or whether they are drawn up by watching the social characteristics of only a limited number of Negroes. For instance it is said that Negroes are born criminals, but on the other hand there have been studies made proving that Negroes are no more born criminals than any other race.

It is held that the Negro will diminish necessities of his family budget in order to enjoy the regular amount of amusement in the midst of the present economic changes. It Is not the purpose of this study to prove the above statement, to be true,but it is the purpose to find and show the extent to which Negroes in Houston give support to commercialized recreation in the midst of the present economic condition.
