If we compare the number of Black men aged 18 to 24 who are in college against the number from that same age group who are in prison, we can see that there are more Black men in college than in prison.
"Of course the comparison is of little use since people of all ages are sent to jail, whereas college students tend to be 18-24 year olds. Murray tracked down the respective figures for those age groups and found that for African American men 18-24, there were 480,000 in college and 180,000 in prison or jail. An young African American male is, in fact, two-and-a-half times as likely to be in college as prison or jail."

They never just say that 5 in 10 White women are single and 7 in 10 Black women are single. In stead they juggle the numbers to make our situation sound so much worse than it is.
Why is it that when looked at another way the numbers don't seem so terrible?
Have we been hoodwinked into believing things are worse than they actually are?
