The thing is, people who take CS courses are typically in the smarter end of the spectrum, and they have no desire to associate themselves with the gangsta/mafioso/ghetto cultures, because whatever little these cultures bring to a classroom is rarely enough to compensate for the disruption they also bring. These cultures do not tolerate smartness, so they don't go well with a science course.
It does happen that people from these cultures break free from the taboo and land themselves in college, and that's fantastic, but blaming CS for their hardships isn't the right way to go about it.
