Why does the media make it seem blacks have lower grad rates then Hispanics?

60% of hispanics graduate high school compared to 82% of native born black graduate..The gap has been steadily closing on whites.

In fact only around 50% of people of Mexican decent graduate HS, compared to 74% or Puerto Ricans and 80% for Cuban decent.

Update: You incorrect. Blacks have higher college grad rates too. 18% for blacks, 12% for hispanics.
