Technology Versus African-Americans
Before reading the article â€śTechnology Versus African-Americansâ€?, I never realized that African-Americans seldom involved in the technology business. It is still unclear to me the full reason that they do not pursue careers in the technology areas more. I think the main reason may just be that there is a small basis for a beginning in that area. What I mean by that is if people of a certain culture are not involved, then their children and childrenâ€™s children will be less likely to get involved as well because they have to exposure to it growing up. Nowadays though, I think that it is possible that more African-Americans will get involved in the technology because it is so common for everyone to USE technology. This will lead to interest in the area and they may pursue careers in that field as well. For people to say that African-Americans are technologically illiterate, though, I believe is a false statement. They use as much technology as anyone else in todayâ€™s society. It may have been valid in the past, but not so much now. Like the example the article gave about the invention of the cotton gin causing technological struggles for African-Americans, this may have been a problem in the past. In the very near future, though, I think that they will have an increased involvement in the technology field.
