Subject: RE: For the Old Timers: What Did You Think of Tommie Smith and John Carlos in 1968
I don't know where you got your numbers, but mine came from
Table A-2. Percent of People 25 Years and Over Who Have Completed High School or College, by Race, Hispanic Origin and Sex: Selected Years 1940 to 2007
It shows 82.3% for blacks in 2007 and 30.1% in 1968. For comparison's sake, the "all races" numbers are 85.7% and 52.6% respectively. Looks to me like a remarkable step forward in 40 years, and if trends continue the gap will be essentially zero in a few years.
