Do Black Lives Matter When 75% of Black Boys Can't Read and Write At Standard Levels?

75% of Black California Boys Can’t Read

I discovered this article on Facebook posted by a friend. In the article, the writer points out that most Black boys in California do not meet reading and writing standards based on data from the state Department of Education.  I’m going to take a moment to contribute my two cents opinion to the problem, and unlike Tom Loveless, who is quoted in the article, I would place this as one of the most devastating  impingement on the Black community since the War of Poverty (New Slavery).

The article declares a predictable sharp decrease in college admissions if this trend continues. Today, according to my research, there are approximately 2.7 million Black women with college degrees verses 1.9 million Black men.  My problem with the article is that this is not a new trend. This is a trend that started in the sixties and now we are seeing the devastating effects of  Liberal policies on our schools. To talk about the problem as if it just occurred could leave readers with the impression that the problem is not that severe. Since it just started, we can fix it. Or, it could be a temporary result of the 2016 election.  

According to a study done by The Journal of Blacks in Higher Education, it concluded the following: “Today black women hold a large lead over black men in enrollments in almost all undergraduate and graduate programs. And this gender gap has grown over the past 30 years. Most important, black women have a college graduation rate that is significantly higher than the rate for black men. This current and growing enrollment gender gap among African Americans, coupled with a far higher college graduation rate for black women compared to black men, means that in future years, the gender gap in African-American degree attainments is certain to grow even wider. The most serious news is that if present trends continue, a generation from now black women with a four-year college degree will outnumber black men with a bachelor’s degree by a ratio of 2 to 1.

Black people need to understand that this is exactly what social policies adopted in the sixties are supposed to produce. We keep look at failed social policies as if they were just enacted last week, not realizing that Liberals have been planning and working towards a system where the elites rules and the masses follow orders, policies, rules and laws defined by the elites.  The question is simple, how much longer do we allow Liberals to run our school systems?

Do Black Lives Matter enough for us to fight for better schools?
