A new study from the Justice Policy Institute ( http://www.justicepolicy.org ), a Washington, DC-based think-tank that advocates for alternatives to prison, has found that after two decades of harsh criminal justice policies, there are more black men in jail or prison than in college. At the end of 2000, 791,600 black men were behind bars and 603,032 were enrolled in colleges or universities. By contrast, in 1980 -- before the prison boom -- black men in college outnumbered black men behind bars by a ratio of more than 3 to 1, the study found.

I'm surprised there are any blacks at all in College with the 50 percent high school drop out rate. Must be the affirmative action, helping hand scam getting these people accepted into college.
What a waste of white taxpayer money.
Most that do get into college can't read on an eighth grade level anyway.

those are 2000 numbers. i believe the incarceration rate is down for aam since then but you might want to check. the criminal justice policies targeting aam is just part of the problem, as the breakdown of the family also contributes greatly, to this issue. we should keep in mind that though the drug policies did explode our prison population, aa also commit a great deal of 'real' crimes as well.

This is how blacks act once the affirmative action program gets them into college.
They don't apply themselves to study, but instead make sex tapes. Pure animals these people are. Dogs have more class and morals than these "people".
SMH!!

I call bs. Those statistics are always skewed. They measure the prison population total vs the total collage population. What they don't consider is that collage age is 18-24. They should compare those two statistics.

smh so sad.

there are not more college age blks in prison than in college

According to government figures, more than twice as many young African American men are now enrolled in college than are imprisoned. Several studies, including one by the Justice Policy Institute, which advocates alternatives to incarceration, have concluded that over all, more black men are in prison than are enrolled in colleges and universities. But among 18- to 24-year-olds, more young black men are enrolled in college (and live either on campus or elsewhere) than are incarcerated.

I'm not shocked black people are no longer shocked in fact lets put an end to this! they are controlled by the music they listen to and if you don't ban the crap they listen to then more will go to prison!

Sometimes I feel like smashing my nephews Ipod when ever he plays rap music!

Black AA Males are the most failed group of men in America today, possibly the world.

The problem I see is that Black women chase around the thugs! So the Black AA male has no incentive for doing well.

And they call those getting an education "acting white".

It is a corrupt AA culture! No morals or any sense of right and wrong.

Come on now thinking like that is why us blacks are never going to change cuz we quick blame someone eles for crimes we commit. Lets just say white are maniputating the stats now what it doesnt change anything our communities still are bad and our kids still acting a fool.

Blacks lie, whites lie, numbers don't. Putting the number of all black people against the number of all black college aged people will give you distorted results. Snap out of the brainwashing.
