Why Black Boys Are In Jail...And White Boys Aren't So Much
Yesterday, I asked where the Black boys are and provided a heart-wrenching photograph in response to the question. Today, I'm posting a video ABC featured on their "What Would You Do?" television program in 2010. It's about twelve minutes long. If you watch the whole twelve minutes, you'll spend the rest of the day thinking about it.
When I show it in class, White students say, "It's gotta be a set up, right?...This can't be the way it really is, could it?" Black students roll their eyes and sigh.
