There is an excellent article up on OKTC (http://outkickthecoverage.com/ncaa-exploits-black-male-athletes.php) regarding the graduation rates of male black athletes and NCAA exploitation. I point to the article mostly because it led me to the actual study, located here ( https://www.gse.upenn.edu/equity/sites/gse.upenn.edu.equity/files/publications/Harper_Williams_and_Blackman_%282013%29.pdf)
Want to know what the graduation rate (in 6 years) is for male black athletes at Texas A&M, across all sports? 38% THIRTY EIGHT PERCENT!!! It's an appalling rate. For comparison, all student athletes graduate at 64%, and all black men in the university graduate at 55%. Our graduation rates are pathetic, and our school needs to do a better job of graduating those who play for us.
