Technology, Information, and content are the most valuable assets on the planet. Technology pretty much controls every aspect of our lives. According to the diversity reports of tech giants like Google, Microsoft, Facebook, and Twitter their employee breakdown is 56% white, 37% Asian. 3% hispanic, and 1% Black. If these statistics don’t improve black people will be even more disadvantaged in the world as it moves forward rapidly. Instead of our youth indulging themselves in the use of Iphones and ipads, Facebook and snapchat, we need to also indulge ourselves in the knowledge of how these devices and platforms work and the foundation of how they are created. Our black youth needs steady encouragement to get involved in the world of technology from an educational perspective and help them understand how essential the understanding of tech is for their future survival and success.
