With all the focus on diversity and equity, etc., which are just euphemisms for rewarding people regardless of ability or effort, what is happening to one demographic group is being ignored. As this report demonstrates, the group most suffering from lack of equity right now is younger males, of any race. And basically nothing is being done about it. This group is having an educational, vocational and health crisis, but no one cares. So much for supposed devotion to addressing problems that are real. The consequences to society are real as well, with a loss of contribution from this group, increased participation in crime and violent activity, and increased social spending. We need to see the kind of focused programs designed to help young women aimed at young men. Some of the statistics in the report are truly frightening. Look at the comparative rates of educational attainment, of economic attainment, of health issues. (Equity Report)
