Walter Williams explains the NFL and many other things

Walter Williams:

The nation’s high schools continue to deliver grossly fraudulent education — namely, issue diplomas that attest that students can read, write, and compute at a 12th-grade level when they may not be able to perform at even an 8th or 9th grade level. During a recent University of North Carolina scandal, a learning specialist hired to help athletes found that during the period from 2004 to 2012, 60% of the 183 members of the football and basketball teams read between 4th and 8th grade levels. About 10% read below a 3rd grade level

That’s strike one, and imagine the college curriculum for athletes. Strike two is the massive increase in never-married, one parent households. There certainly are problems, but it’s not the flag that oppresses.
