Glad to see the attention on black boys; they truly have troubles. But barely more troubles than Hispanic boys. White boys from blue-collar families aren’t far behind. I’d love to see a PBS special on what all these boys have in common. I’ve never thought focusing just on African-American boys was the most effective strategy.
