I saw a disturbing video on Youtube last night talking about the plight that ails young black men in today’s society. Most people old and young were asked the question of whether there are more black men in college or in jail today. I am sad to say that so many of the young black men in my community are in jail. I think that the young black man is so captivated by this materialistic society that doesn’t do enough to promote manhood. Another reason is the breakdown in the family unit, which spawns so many problems within itself. Black men are maturing slowly because of a lack of role models and examples in their families and communities. We need to find a way to buck the trend and stop the decline of the black male, or all young men in our society.
More Black Men In Jail or College?
