Technology Vs. African Americans
This article brings up many points to think about. I believe that there are many African Americans that have stunted skills with technology, but I also think that this view of things is a bit restricted, there are also many African Americans who flourish in the ways of the computerized world while I have only a base knowledge since most of it makes little sense to me. I also believe that one of the main reasons that this group of people has so limited a knowledge basis and skill with computers has to do with the fact that there is a mainly richer (not necessarily rich) white society holding the reins of power and also with the often limited resources of the schools. I have had experience with many people, including many of those at the Minnesota Internship Center, that have no computer at home and as such there experience with them is limited to what they get at school which severely cuts in on there potential to be able to be fluent in the ways of the computer. This in turn will diminish their potential of excelling in modern society, both job-wise and socially. Every person should have the opportunity to be educated in all ways as best that can be done. But as it stands there are only a select few who have this choice. This should change, and it should change soon.
