This topic is an extention of the college thread. Is the incredibly high unemployment rate among Black Men (as high as 50% in NYC & Baltimore), a reflection of our lack of college education? Why are Black Women finding employment, but Black Men being left out. Last year Newsweek printed an article about Black Women becoming more successful than Black Men. The conclusions of that article was that Black Women in general were better educated, and more responsible (less drug use, imprisonment, more ambitious, etc.). I think this was an incredibly simplistic exploration of this pattern. I would like to know if today's workforce favors women over men? Specifically are Black Men being faced with Racism, and "reverse-Sexism"? Does the belief that women make $.75 on the dollar apply to African Americans? What are the real reasons that Black Women are becoming more successful than Black Men in the workforce?
