Peep the link above for an Essence write up of an AP survey on "Why Black Men Can't Finish College?"
1/6 of me want to find the AP research so I can read the conclusions and have some more insight myself. I'm sure it's nothing that hasn't been said before...but it's nice when numbers back it up.
1/6 of me wants to find the AP research to discredit some part of it, because that's what I've been trained to do.
1/3 of me is (as I often am of recent) disgruntled with Essence for basically regurgitating an Associated Press project without adding more nuance and then having the nerve to title the piece so negatively. I'm not saying to go start finding excuses for black men not finishing college, but you can flesh out a news piece.
1/3 of me is extremely happy its pushing 1AM and I can excuse myself out of thinking because I should be asleep.
Most of the comments on the Essence website seem to point to men spending their college time chasing women. Do you agree that this is the problem?
