Black Male Teachers Becoming Extinct
Black Star Logo"There are African American men all over the country with skills, and with passion, that can serve these boys in so many capacities that they don't even know," King says. "It makes a huge difference because [the students] are able to be comfortable with themselves, they're able to see what they'll become one day, and if those images are positive, it raises their self identity to another level."
King hopes that by reaching his young black boys early, he'll be able to help them build a strong educational foundation that will allow them to buck another troubling trend: the low number of African American males entering and graduating from college. A recent report from the Department of Education showed that males are now a distinct minority on campus-even at historically black colleges and universities.

Black Women Greatly Out Number Black Men at HBCU's.  Who Will Professional Black Women Marry?
Black Star LogoOf Black males who make it to an HBCU, only 29 percent will graduate within six years, which is worse than the 33 percent national average of black males at all colleges. Nationally, the six-year graduation rate is 57 percent.
The gender gap is magnified at Clark Atlanta University, where a staggering 74 percent of the students are female. Last fall, as the school welcomed one of the largest freshman classes in history - more than 1,000 - fewer than 100 were men.
Michelle Alexander and The New Jim Crow
Social Justice Movement Arrive in Nebraska
on Saturday, March 10, 2010 
People in Omaha, Lincoln, North Platte and Grand Island, Nebraska;  Sioux City, Des Moines, Davenport and Iowa City, Iowa; Sioux Falls, South Dakota; Minneapolis and Rochester, Minnesota; St. Joseph and Kansas City, Missouri; Overland Park, Topeka and Kansas City, Kansas; Cheyenne, Wyoming; and Denver, Colorado are encouraged to attend this event.  
"Much like a great explorer, Michelle Alexander has discovered another America--a bizarro world where prejudice and discrimination have replaced truth and justice. An America that is as intent on destroying young Black men as it is at proclaiming its passion for freedom and fairness. Even some of the most conscious and best-intentioned Americans can't see The New Jim Crow and their roles in supporting it. Michelle Alexander holds a mirror up to America and reveals a monster!"  - Phillip Jackson, The Black Star Project

Charter School Segregation
Target Of New Report
Black Star Logo
Charter schools often promise to bring greater equity to education, but a new brief starts with the assumption that they fall short in delivery - and provides recommendations to fix the alleged injustice.
"Charter schools tend to be more racially segregated than traditional public schools," said author and Penn State law professor Preston Green III, who sat on a board that considered charter-school applications in Pennsylvania. "What we tried to do is write ways to enable charter schools to promote desegregation rather exacerbate segregation."

Next week, Thomas R. Proctor High School senior Julius Blackshear will visit several colleges during winter break.  By the end of the week, he will have a better idea of which college he might attend in the fall.
Blackshear's winter-break activity represents that of many high school seniors, but he's somewhat of an anomaly among black males, according to a study by the Washington, D.C.-based Council of the Great City Schools that found only 4 percent of college students are black males.

Featured Column: Leonard Pitts Jr.
Do you watch "Mad Men"? If so, you know that one of the things that drama about a 1960s advertising agency does best is transport you back to the days when women still were "gals." We think we remember what that was like. We use words like "sexist" and "paternalistic" to describe it.

When Rick Santorum's Super PAC sugar daddy Foster Friess describes how things were "back in my days," it is worth remembering that those are the days he is referring to. READ MORE

GOP Primary
Rick Santorum has begun to call out Ron Paul and Mitt Romney for their bizarre alliance in the Republican presidential primary as he seeks to unite the broad majority of his party that has rejected Romney's suspect politics for something more pure (and fiery).

"We need to go out and say we don't need the Ron Paul faction and the moderate establishment teaming up to attack the real conservative in this race," he complained. READ MORE

The U.S. and its allies dismissed the Syrian regime's referendum on a new constitution Sunday as a "farce" meant to justify the bloody crackdown on dissent. But voters in government strongholds suggested why some Syrians have not joined the uprising against President Bashar Assad: Loyalty, distrust of the opposition, and fear his fall will ignite a civil war.

My Front Pages, By Joe Conason
Seeking applause from a right-wing audience in Michigan, Mitt Romney vowed on Saturday: "I will cut spending, I will cap spending and I will finally balance the budget," saying that he will end federal funding for all the usual Republican budgetary scapegoats -- the Public Broadcasting System, the National Endowment for the Arts, and the National Endowment for the Humanities.

But Romney must think the Tea Party "conservatives" he is courting are very stupid indeed, if he's promising to balance the federal budget by eliminating the miniscule amounts spent on the nation's cultural programs. As the former businessman and governor certainly knows, his numbers -- including the massive tax cuts and defense increases -- simply don't balance, ever. READ MORE
