From the study...

Teen pregnancy rates continued to fall and reached record lows in 2009 for the three major race and Hispanic origin groups.

  • From 1990 to 2009, rates fell 51% for non-Hispanic white and non-Hispanic black teenagers and 40% for Hispanic teenagers (Figure 4).
  • Non-Hispanic black and Hispanic teen pregnancy rates were at least twice those of non-Hispanic white teenagers during the entire period.
  • The non-Hispanic black teen pregnancy rate was 39% higher than the Hispanic teen rate in 1990 (232.7 compared with 167.4). The difference disappeared by the mid-2000s, and then reappeared in 2006.

Figure 4. Pregnancy rates for teenagers aged 15–19, by race and Hispanic origin: United States, 1990–2009

Figure 4 is a line graph showing pregnancy rates for teenagers aged 15 through 19 by race and Hispanic origin for the United States from 1990 through 2009.

so you gone just keep pushing the issue, huh? LOL

could it be that you are one of those people who can't appreciate small victories because acknowledging any steps in the right direction closes the gap between the degenerates and the elitists; making you quesion your snowflake status, making you that much more inconspicuous? 

yeah, i see you, boo.

So I'm wrong for posting extra information and I'm wrong for posting information directly from the study that the OP is about?

I don't think anyone is a degenerate, but if they are then so am I. I'm no different and I'm certainly not separate.

I could throw in some MLK, Malcolm X, or Mandela quotes about celebrating every victory and then continuing to fight the good fight but I guess that would make me an elitist or special snowflake right?

You ain't wrong for it but it just reeks of ...something idk.
Can't put my finger on it.
At first you didn't even care to acknowledge the study but wanted to emphasize how worse off we are .

Maybe you just get off on being a contrarian though

being that you jumped at the opportunity to change the course of this discussion by pointing out all the negatives; never even acknowledging the good in this study, i don't know what it makes you other than disingenuous. at best.
