Graphs of the Day

It's interesting that from the 1940s through the early 1950s there was less than a 5% gap between white and black college graduates, before the Civil Rights Act and before affirmative action programs, compared to a gap of more than 15% over the last ten years.

Another way to read the chart is to say that roughly twice as many whites as blacks complete four years of college, and have done so since the 1940's, so there's no change at all.

Hey anonyomous may I suggest that you read Dr. Thomas Sowell's commentary titled: Race as a Factor in School Assignment To Create "Diversity"
