Roseboro says, " . . . 83%

Roseboro says, " . . . 83% of students’ are college and career ready . . . but only 20% of black males pass the test."

Twenty percent! But this is not unique to Wilmington. The low academic performance of teenage black males is endemic all over the country.

You can excuse their low academic performance and place the blame anywhere you like. You can explain, explain, explain.

But I will tell you one reason (there are many) why young black males are intellectually inept: they lack knowledge and vocabulary. Instead of reading or engaging their minds in activities that stimulate critical thought, they have filled their minds with the obscene garbage of Hip Hop.

Instead of studying to prepare themselves for college, they have taken a walk on the wild side, the path that leads directly to prison.
They love rap, and "they loves they guns."
