The black pathology porn parade continues.
According to these recent studies Black America is in a piss poor state of being. Question: can we even talk of one "Black America" any more? Did it ever exist outside of our dreams of Black Wall Streets and Black Metropolises?
In 70 words--I couldn't bring myself to write more--here are the findings (if any of you intrepid copy editing souls can cut the word count even more, please do so. I will then post a suitably amended version):
12 percent of black boys are proficient in math. In English? The percentage is the same.
White kids do twice as well in both disciplines. In fact, poor white boys do better in math and English than black boys not in poverty.
Only five percent of college students are black men.
How sad. What are the causes?
Individuals? Structures? Socialization?
