For All Points-Of-The-View.
According to the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation, 12.7 million African-American males 18 and older account for only five point five percent of all college students.
How to advance career and education success to improve the lives of African-American males and their families is exactly what Joe L. Rempson aims to address in his book, “The African American Male School Adaptability Crisis (AMSAC)” (published by AuthorHouse). With 41 years of experience in the field of education and as the former dean of students at Bronx Community College, Rempson believes that a lack of education opportunities for black males leads to a breakdown in African-American families for future generations.
Rempson said African-American males struggle in school because of a culture that blames society for their struggles instead of taking responsibility themselves. He believes this ideology has a direct correlation to the prevalence of fatherless families and crime.
“African-American males are responsible for the problems in black families,” Rempson said. “They must assume the roles of family provider and protector to fix this problem.”
To remedy the situation, Rempson aims to implement a new after school education program that focuses on exposing African-American males to role models and counselors dedicated to career success and family matters.
“African Americans have a massive failure in school performance and solving that crisis is the key to strengthening the African-American family,” He also details ways in which home and community must contribute. Rempson says. “Addressing this issue is the only way we are going to conquer the troubles involved with black families.”

NEW YORK (PRWEB) SEPTEMBER 22, 2016
African Americans (men and women) are not responsible for the problems in our families and communities. The white supremacist system has caused these problems and perpetuated them from one generation to the next.
But we are responsible for finding solutions. No one else can do this for us. It's not just about men becoming the providers and protectors. That is an outdated paradigm. We need to find solutions together.
