Look at the Different College Completion Rates!

Source: Pew Research Center
 "In 2012, a record one-third of adults ages 25 to 29 have attained at least a bachelor's degree."

Why are the college graduation rates for Blacks and Hispanics so low? Part of the reason is that we are letting those among us who are prejudiced throw away some of our best and brightest -- kids whose brains Americans will need in the future. Some portion may be that we are not inviting new immigrants from the best educated the world has to offer.

Note that the portion of White kids getting college degrees has gone up 20 percent since 1971, but that of Black kids has only gone up 10 percent in that time.
