For decades, data about the condition of Black men and boys in America has shown that they fared far worse than their White counterparts in areas such as economics, education, and health. With the rise of the country’s first Black President-Elect, many have said such research is no longer needed and the conversation should cease to take place entering into the year 2009 and beyond.

This is a really stupid article...The black men and boys of the South are doing bad because of their own lack of interest in anything other than hanging on a street corner!!! They could go to school and collage just like Black women and girls are doing, but they don't give a shit...This is their fault and no one elses!!!

Note that the article is from www.finalcall.com . That's right, the Final Call "newspaper" from Louis Farrakhan, head of the Nation of Islam. The man who went to Zimbabwe in 2002 to support dictator Robert Mugabe's bloody regime ( www.wikipedia.org/wiki/Louis_Farrakhan ). A man who said that "white people are potential humans -- they haven't evolved yet." A man who said that "murder and lying comes easy for white people" and that God teaches him to "call the white man the skunk of the earth."

A man so controversial in his racist rhetoric that President-Elect Barack Obama rejected and denounced Farrakhan's support during a televised debate.

And now, some race-baiter in Ohio has decided that Farrakhan's article is news-worthy.***Yawn***
