Subject:African American boys in foster care-adoption rates; behavior problems

Greetings, I am wondering if anyone knows of studies/data showing that African American boys (not just African American children) are adopted less often from foster care? Also, looking for data on African American boys having more behavioral and emotional problems. I would appreciate any suggested citations Thank you, Lovie JJ Stop the Violence/Start the Healing ------------------------------------------- Lovie J.
