The 2025 BMB


The 2025 Campaign for Black Men and Boys.

Sounds interesting, and badly needed. One caveat: I think separating this issue by minority group is a tactical mistake. Making this a "black" issue is just what the pushback movement wants. That way, the boy troubles become nothing more than repackaged racial learning gap issues. But if that were true, black girls would be experiencing the same problems as black boys. They aren't.

In truth, black and Latino boys have a lot in common with the sons of white, working class families. They are all slipping behind in academics and some of the key reasons for the slippage are shared.
