Black or White

A study says that black students take easier courses than white students at Duke University. Abigail Wilson has the story at The College Fix:

Although black and white students enter college with similar academic interests, 68 percent of black students eventually chose to study humanities and social sciences. According to the study, this is because “natural science, engineering, and economics courses are more difficult, associated with higher study times, and are more harshly graded than their humanities and social science counterparts.”
