Betcha don’t.

Here’s a news flash: Most of the college graduation gender gap between Hispanics and whites is due to the lapses by Hispanic males. Hispanic women graduate at roughly the same rate as white males.

Take a look at this AEI Rising to the Challenge Report. Graphic confusing? Read the text at the bottom of page 11.

Wait, didn’t Kevin Carey discover something similiar about black females and white males?

Wait again! Carey is an author on the Hispanic report as well. That guy is everywhere!
