Sixty percent of our (Beaumont, Texas) highest paid school employees are Black.
But only 6.8% of Blacks in the city have at least an Associates degree - in a district that is 65% Black students.
In a city of 100k people that is 50% Black.
I live in an area whose economy is dominated by "The Three P's" (Petroleum, Prisons, The Port) - and each of these require at least an Associates degree for advancement.
What is needed IS NOT more Blacks in positions of power - what is needed is more qualified Blacks.
