Studies are showing that black male athletes have a harder time graduating other than just regular black students that attend the school.
A recent NCAA report on graduation data shows the graduation rate for black male players in all Division I basketball programs was 72 percent for students who started in 2008. For football, the number was 69 percent. On its website, the NCAA says graduation rates are higher than ever, and 15 percent of student-athletes say they would not be in college without sports.
But by the students staying all 4 years of college and getting there degrees that will increase the amount of black college males athletes that finish school. I honestly feel disrespected because there saying with out sports at all a lot of black males wouldn't attend college.
