I came across this at the Book Riot blog.
It was originally used to just break down the demographics and statistics of those pursuing or receiving their Doctorates.
One thing struck me, though. As a country who is striving for, and claims to have arrived at racial equality, this chart seems to debunk that statement by painting a very different picture. It’s a picture of whites receiving the highest educational honors at a 9 to 1 clip over their African-American brothers and sisters (and the odds are even more drastic over other races).
This makes me wonder what deeper issue is going on here. Why is there such a gap?
