...

The Schott Foundation for Public Education, which has tracked graduation rates of black males from public schools since 2004, said 50 percent of black males who entered ninth grade in the 2006-07 school year graduated in four years... That compared with 80 percent of white

"BM 4 to1 Are In College Than Jail 18-30 Years Old!!!!!!"

Not at all true!

"Today, two realities exist. First, there are approximately 395,443 more black men in college than in prison. Approximately 1,236,443 black men are enrolled in institutions of higher education (Knapp, Kelly-Reid, & Ginder, 2010), and 841,000 are serving time in jails and prisons (West, 2010)."

Hardly 4 to 1. More like 1.5 to 1.

For your statement to be true, there would need to be 3.3 million black males enrolled in college. Coincidentally there are about 3.3 million black males between the ages of 18 to 30 years of age in all of America. So for your statement to be true, every black male between 18 to 30 years of age would need to be enrolled in college. That is not possible with 841,000 already in prison.

If you are talking about college when you wrote 'school', you are correct. Black males do attend college at a "higher RATE" than white males. However this really doesn't tell us much.

I know you people prefer raw numbers over per capita and percentages, so would you care to post the raw numbers of black males VS white males attending college?

I didn't think so.

You obviously don't understand what you replied to or can't decipher the chart. You never went to college did you?

This is good news. I'm curious to know how many are genetically black versus socially black.

But, this is good news...Don't get me wrong.
