1.5 Million Black Men Are ‘Missing’



An analysis of U.S. Census data by the New York Times shows that about 1.5 million black men are “missing” from everyday life, due to a combination of disproportionate incarceration, early death, and overseas deployment.

Only 83 of them are around for every 100 black women, compared to a 99 to 100 ratio among whites.

The darkest finding, perhaps, is that this disparity is most pronounced in Ferguson, Missouri-where the fatal police shooting of Michael Brown in August set off a nationwide conversation about police brutality. There, as many as 40 black men are missing there per 100 black women. North Charleston, the South Carolina city where a cop shot and killed another unarmed black man earlier this month, is missing a quarter of its black men. Read more at the New York Times.

  1. Well, it must be the fault of those Evil WHITE Republican males! I think its time for the Whites to pay the blacks, reparations.

  2. #3 — you are so woefully uneducated about the issue. If you keep a people unable to thrive, there will be issues. In disaster relief, if a person is black, they historically got about $8,000 less than a white to recover their home. Not surprisingly, after a storm, whites recover their homes while many blacks don’t. When it comes to being arrested and sentenced, again, justice is not blind (though we pride ourselves on lady justice wearing a blindfold in US statues) — a black kid will get sentenced, the white kid sent home to grow up. And on and on.

  3. To not mention what is likely the more significant reason for the diminished Black male population – the Black on Black violence – is to be blind to the reality of the Black community.
