I know it may be difficult to turn away for the gripping details of where JonBenet’s alleged killer is now and what he watched on TV today, but Terrence tells us that more black men are opting for college. This is actually major news for education in America and breaks a downturn stretching many years.

This is the kind of news you won’t hear on ABC, Fox, or CNN unless perhaps a “BUT” follows. Once again, stories like this demonstrate the power of black-owned and operated media. An article in the St. Louis American, an African-American weekly, says:

“A new report from the Journal of Blacks in Higher Education (JBHE) states that in 2004, the latest year for which complete data is available, there were 758,400 black males enrolled in higher education, compared to 603,032 in 2000. This is the highest level of enrollments for African-American males in history.”

It’s a conventional wisdom buster. So strange that you haven’t heard more about it in the MSM. Hmmm?

Thanks Terrence for keeping it real…
