University of Chicago 3rd Best University in America But Only Has
1% Black Male Enrollment
The University of Chicago was recently announced as the third best university in America in the 2017 Rankings of the U.S. News and World Report. In a country, the United States, with 7% Black Males; in a state, Illinois, with 6% Black Males; in a city, Chicago, that is 35% Black; in a part of Chicago, the south side of Chicago, that is 80% Black; how can the University of Chicago only have one percent of Black males enrolled at their university? This is not acceptable.
The University of Chicago has studied Black violence, Black families, Black youth, Black education, Black economics, Black gangs, Black housing, Black politics and every other aspect of the Black community. The University of Chicago has helped to create policies and programs for Black people, some of them injurious to Black people, but they cannot figure out how to get more than 1% of Black male students on their campus. Are they trying?
The University of Chicago has also become the number one developer in poor, south side Chicago communities which includes land acquisition of and real estate development in those Black communities?
How can the University of Chicago be the third best university in America and they can't even figure out how to get more than 1% of Black males on their campus as students?

and let him know that you want the University of Chicago to use some of its $8 billion endowment to increase their Black male student enrollment to 10% by the 2018 academic year.
