Are there really more black men between the ages of 18 and 35 in jail than there are in collges or employed? I remember learning in college that this was a myth created by the media and other forces and at the time stats were provided but I don't remember who, what or where now, so if you can prove your argument either way, please provide.

Many thanks for the link. I'm am not going to say that it is the gospel and take everything at this man's word but it is definitely a start to beginning to prove what I believe are gross misconceptions.

I don't consider myself a conspiracy theorist but think about this. If we believe what the media says about us is true, I mean if we really begin to internalize their information, as we have begun to do. Will we want to continue to be in the company of one another? Will we continue to procreate with one another... etc...
