NC lawmakers want a commission to study challenges facing black males

McClatchy reports:
U.S. Rep. G.K. Butterfield, chairman of the Congressional Black Caucus, and Rep. Alma Adams want to create a commission to study the challenges facing black males, including a high rate of homicides and incarceration and other hardships.

North Carolina Democrats Butterfield and Adams and 37 other caucus members have endorsed legislation, known as the Commission on the Social Status of Black Men and Boys Act. The commission would investigate potential civil rights violations affecting black males and study the disparities they experience in education, criminal justice, health, employment, fatherhood, mentorship and violence. They would put their findings in an annual report that would include recommendations for how to improve conditions.

Commission members would include the caucus chairman as well as 18 unpaid representatives from the caucus, from federal agencies and others from outside government. Butterfield, of Wilson, N.C., and Adams, of Charlotte, say they’d like some prominent North Carolina leaders on the commission.
