JBHE Statistical Shocker of the Year: 2,100 Doctorates, but none to an African American?
This, in a nutshell is the TRUE reason why we are failing as a society – because every dirty politician who wanted to get into office and needed the minority vote, cow-tied to pressures such as lowering school and test standards to make them more uniform with minorities’ needs. The effect? We are creating a society of non-educated people who will not be able to compete in the future.
Here is another article from the same journal that states that in the same year, African Americans earned 1,869 Doctoral Degrees — up 9% from the previous year.
The article goes on to state:
The overall progress in the past two decades
has been rock solid. In 1987 only 787 African
Americans earned doctorates. This year’s
total of 1,869 doctorates is nearly 2.4 times
as many as were earned in 1987. In 1990
the black share of all doctoral awards was
3.6 percent. That has now grown to 7.1
percent, a showing of significant prog-ress
in a relatively short period of time of 15 years.
Edit: I read back over your lil blurb and am sticking to my guns. You question is???,,,,, That’s right you didn’t ask one. You have in fact made a statement. Someone who does not understand the difference between statements and questions should stop copying and pasting things verbatim in an attempt to look educated and do some basic study in grammar. Not PhD, just second grade.
Do you have a doctorate?
Just because you want to bash doesn’t mean your smart…in fact it is evidence that you are not.
I notice you didn’t answer my question…do you have a doctorate? Do you know what one is? Do you know how hard it is to get one? I bet $1,000 that you do not. And I’d bet another $1,000 that none of the people you hang out with do either. Ignorant people post BS like this and then try to minimize the answerers. It a game played by people called “I’m OK and your not OK because you don’t agree with me.” Its called…I feel bad about myself so I have to try to feel better by tearing down others…
Multiculturalism is what made this country what it is. And by the way who cares about this data? It just shows that you are in your own little world and holding hate in your heart. Guess what I am Black and I am in school. I hope this dosent ruffle your feathers.
EDIT – Asked a question you couldn’t answer. Why does that mean I’m out of my league? Please re-read, sans tendency to over-mythologize yourself.
