    Blacks are more success- and education-aversive and less accepting of those members of their race than White or Asian, according to a new study

    The problem here is they are looking at "blacks" as a monolithic group and "whites" as a monolithic group.

    Look at drop-outs Bristol Palin and Levi Johnson. Bristol's mother rolling her eyes when someone says they are a teacher. Those kids don't represent many liberal whites and their mother certainly doesn't represent liberal mother's who want their children to go to school.

    You have white kids in Blue States competing and putting themselves in debt to make it in a prestigious college or university. Then you have the children of Confederate Republicans getting pregnant, catching STD's and dropping out.

    See, you can't put all the whites into the same group. It's the same with blacks.

    This could have been an intelligent post.

    I am going to break the rules here for a moment and edit it a bit.

    There, doubled the IQ of the post.

    What matters is parents who are involved in the kids education, kids who are responsible and goal oriented.

    As long as you have people focused on what is important, then you will have positive results.

    Now let us not forget the kinds of schools Black kids attend. And the reality of many black families being dysfunctional in many ways.

    You have an intact family deeply involved in their kids schooling, you will get positive results. There are many ways to heartbreak.

    As usual, Rdean is uninformed... Delaware, Michigan, New York, Washington State, Washington D.C., Nevada, New Mexico, Hawaii and California all close to the bottom of the barrel in graduation rates.

    The only two below 50% were both Blue...Nevada and Washington D.C.


    Now for those of you who are sane...the mix of blue states to red states seems pretty even at the top and at the bottom...but what I notice in the chart (Link below...pdf, so I don't know how to paste it here) is at the far right, the disparity between black and white lends credence to the OP.

    The same 'magnet' schools whites get turned away from due to racial quotas
    You're not helping your case, if you're trying to spin this to make the negroes look better

    I'm with Bill Cosby on this one. Blacks need to stop playing victim.

    This is diversity, and this is a difference, why does anyone think that blacks should want to be educated the same as others?

    Africans did not ask to be brought here, now you want to change who they are.

    Africans should be returned to their natural habitat.

    Quite right. I can see it might look like I was trying to excuse rather than explain.

    Certain behaviors lead to certain results. Irrespective of race.
