EAST LANSING (AP) - Black
children born in Michigan will face an
uphill road all their lives, according to a
gloomy annual report issued yesterday.
New political strategies must be
found and implemented if Michigan's
"persistent racial inequality is to be
reversed," said the State of B lack Michi-
gan 1993 report.
"Black children born in Michigan
can expect to encounter inequality at
every stage of their life," said Joe Darden,
dean of Urban Affairs Programs at
Michigan State University and coordi-
nator of the report.
The university issued the report for
the 10th time, and Darden said little has
improved for Michigan Blacks over the
last decade.
"Race is still a significant factor in
American society," he said. "We cannot
ignore the factor of race."
Authors of the latest report empha-
sized that Michigan officials must at-
tack family and societal problems be-
fore they result in children raised in
poverty, abuse and neglect. Those fac-
tors produce the criminals who are

crowding Michigan prisons, they said.
"We have to go back to the cause,"
said Bennie Stovall, executive director
of the Children's Aid Society of Detroit.
"Right now these are children who 10
years from now, 20 years from now, will
be wards of the state."
But the experts expressed frustra-
tion at the attitudes of lawmakers and
society.
They said people pay attention only
when a problem, such as crime or drugs,
directly threatens them.
"We've been saying this for 10
years," said Charles Anderson, presi-
dent and chief executive officer for the
Detroit Urban League. "It's a voice in
the wilderness."
Ronald Brown, associate professor
of political science at Wayne State Uni-
versity, said Gov. John Engler's call for
lower taxes and less governmentdoesn't
win over many Blacks.
"Engler's rating in the Black com-
munity is lower than it would be among
white voters," he said. "Not because he
is a Republican, but because of the
issues he has put forth."

Dr. Joe Darden addresses a conference at Michigan State University yesterday.

Yesterday's report made the follow-
ing points, among others:
EThe statusof Blackchildren didn't
improve over the last decade. Those
children had a higher poverty rate than
whites, and the Black infant death rate
remains more than double the rate for
white infants.
* The health carestatus of Blacks in
Michigan continues to decline and the

gap between whites and Blacks remains.
Blacks, 14 percent of Michigan's
population, accounted for 52 percent of
the AIDS cases In 1992.
Blacks older than 65 in 1990 were
more than twice as likely as their white
counterparts to be poor, and elderly
Black women are more likely tobe poor
than Black men.
