Google Search For Today: African-American, Crisis

Posted: August 20, 2008 in The Media

Is it me, or does it seem according to some/many folks out there that the Black community as a whole is in a perpetual crisis? Here are some of the results I got from using the words African-American, Crisis in Google.

How about White American, Crisis

< Huh?!?!?!? How did this get here?
American Power: Sean Taylor and the African-American Crisis< Same with this one

The reason why I posted fewer results for the last two searches is because most of the Google results did not directly talk about a crisis in those groups.

Black folks have issues–we know that and yes we do need to talk about it. But it is very interesting to see things like high divorce rates, abortion, crime, teen sex, etc. in other groups do not get the “crisis” treatment.
