Charts: More Black Males In College Than Prison, Actually

Contrary to what you may have heard (and the arguments you may have won or lost as a result) there are way more black men in college than in prison. Or at least that's what The American Prospect is telling me.

I thought the argument was that at 30, a black male is more likely to have been in jail than have graduated college, not more likely than having been to college. Considering the graduation rate hovers at about 50% for college and probably less than that for black males, I would guess that it's still accurate.
