If you listen to some people, Blacks don't graduate at the same rate from college as white students because of affirmative action.
Right now, overall, the percentage of Blacks in college is around 14%.
The number of Blacks with a college degree is around 12% while, for whites, it's about 28%.
I bring this up for one reason:
Nearing a diploma, most college students cannot handle many complex but common tasks, from understanding credit card offers to comparing the cost per ounce of food.
Those are the sobering findings of a study of literacy on college campuses, the first to target the skills of students as they approach the start of their careers.
More than 50 percent of students at four-year schools and more than 75 percent at two-year colleges lacked the skills to perform complex literacy tasks.
More than 50%?
That can't be mainly Black students, can it?
