This article at msnbc begins:

"As one of only 192 blacks who scored higher than 1450 on the SAT this year, Alice Abrokwa is being wooed by some of the nation’s most elite colleges."

I had no idea things were that bad... 1450 isn't that high and 192 is really low. Is our country really doing that abomidably bad of a job of teaching black children? (Yes, haiwen, this is an invitation for a rant...)

In tangentially related news this week's FM is on the lack of economic class diversity at harvard. It's an interesting read, especially for me since i was in that 9% of "poor" harvard students.
