Study of How Discrimination Hurts Iowa
Dana Boone details a study of African-American families in Iowa and Georgia. Some interesting findings:
*Iowa participants reported more discrimination than those in Georgia
*42% of Iowa participants were suspended from school (higher than Georgia)
*30% of Iowa participants experienced trouble with the law (higher than Georgia)
The unequal treatment faced by the Jena 6 is not limited to Louisiana. Dana Boone provides much more here.
