The black male may be the most endangered species inMaryland.His life expectancy is five years less than that of white males. He is seven times more likely than a white man to be a homicide victim. He is more likely than a black female to drop out of school, to be unemployed and to suffer mental and physical illness. He is, in the words of Baltimore Del. Elijah E. Cummings, "dying physically, emotionally and spiritually."Yet human "environmentalists" have paid little systematic attention to this threatened species.

A study of firearm assaults in six states, including Maryland, found that young males make up the largest share of those who go to the hospital with an injury, supporting previous research. But it also found black females were more likely than white males to go to the hospital with such a wound. The study, by the Urban Institute based on 2010 hospital data, showed uninsured victims were more likely to die than those with insurance. And up to 64 percent of the hospital costs were paid for with public money.
