Black boys need role models: Report

Recommended Posts

Black boys need more role models who do not glamorise crime, guns or drugs, according to a new report.(Advertisement)It will call for the creation of a National Role Model programme to give the youngsters figures from their own community to look up to.The independent Reach report was commissioned by the Department for Communities and Local Government and its findings are expected to be welcomed by ministers. A copy of the full report will be presented to Communities Secretary Hazel Blears at its launch in Manchester.It says that tackling underachievement and a "culture of low aspiration" in black boys could boost the economy by £24 billion in the next 50 years.It suggests a five-point plan for how communities, local agencies, parents and the Government can work together to improve the life chances of young black men.It also recommends the creation of a national umbrella organisation to provide support to the many small voluntary groups around the country that it says face "significant barriers" to getting government funding.The report advocates stronger relationships between parents of black boys and schools to improve educational aspirations.It also urges Ofsted to provide greater consistency in the way schools are inspected to ensure all schools seek to close the academic gap between black and white pupils.Chairman of the Reach group, Clive Lewis, who runs The Men's Room charity for black men, said: "We need to focus our collective effort on raising the aspirations and achievement of black boys and young men to enable them to be more connected and engaged with wider society and more able to make an even greater contribution economically, culturally and politically to Britain."Often the only well-known images of black men are those of sportsmen and rap artists. But black boys and young men desperately need a greater diversity of images and portrayals, showing that black men can be, and are, successful as in a wide range of careers including business, teaching, the law and health care."

Many intelligent black boys become underachievers for many reasons. One prominent reason is status. Status that they do not feel they can get anywhere, but the streets.I could write essays about it all day long ya na, but I'll save it until it's actually going to make some difference.

Yeah but why are they pushed to look to the streets for "status" ?

Well that's where the institutional racism comes in, partly.
