Technology Vs. African Americans
I wasn't very surprised when reading this article to find that African Americans don't have much to do with technology. We have talked a lot in our discussions about how many African Americans are not very well educated because of poverty rates. I think it's sad that certain races are confined to do certain things. Especially with fields like technology, where it is predominatley white dominated. No one is really to blame for this. I really liked the line, "What might be accomplished by an education system that truly tried to educate everyone to excellence, not just the children of the cities and the suburbs? (18)" If all schools focused on educating all students to be their best there wouldnt be as many gaps in society but as we all know and have discussed it's not as simple as we'd like to think. There are too many circumstances with inner city schools funding and all sorts of other things that we never seem to think of when looking for solutions.
