Freedom Writers

An inspiring movie about a dedicated teacher who succeeded in graduating all of her 150 racially diverse students out of high school. Unfortunately this is not typical as generally speaking only 78% of black students, 80% of Hispanic students, 89% of white students and 91% of Asian students graduate from High School every year.

Blacks are at the bottom of SAT scores, high school graduation rates and income distribution as well. And yet Asian and Hispanic immigrants beat them on all three counts. Is it institutional black racism that is going on here or something else?

And that is all I’m going to say about that.
