Study: African-American Boys Receive Less Attention, Harsher Punishment ...
A recent study by the Yale University Child Study Center shows that Black children -- especially boys -- no matter their family income, receive less attention, harsher punishment and lower marks in school than their White counterparts from kindergarten all the way through college. A subsequent article published in "The Washington Post" reported that Black children in the Washington, D.C. area are suspended or expelled two to five times more often than White children. It's a national trend that needs to be addressed.
Judith Browne Dianis, co-director of the Advancement Project joined Roland Martin on Washington Watch to discuss this disturbing trend.
