Re: Young African Americans are engaged in politics but aren't guaranteed to turn out in 2012

Okay ... I have to admit that I found this article - with all it's facts and figures and sectioning and analyzing - somewhat confusing. I think I understand where he was trying to go ... but, I don't think I agree with his analysis in its entirety. I mean, I think there's no disputing that our youth are "under-engaged" in the political process. At least as far as actual VOTING is concerned. And I do believe that intellectually , many of our young people know and understand politics at a rate...

Sounds like the blind (outta desperation) leading the blind to me. Are these intellectuals actually calling for a one world government? Well I suppose that the gullble, (outta desperation) could only concede. I'll tell ya...there's never been a reason any more urgent, than to reach back to Our Afrikan Roots.

It seems like it's 1960 again. And it's regressing fast. Cuz what we talked about back then is what we are CURRENTLY discussing today. I heard about Aretha Franklin's taking about a statement he made at her funeral. And Steve shouted black lives matter. And the preacher said black lives don't matter, if black folks don't care about each other. We need to start caring about each other again. And he is soooooooooooooooooooooooooo right!

This is where the American Short Term Memory (or the Orwellian Memory Hole) shines. This explanation has seen many different forms and has been shot down in every incarnation.

I could say that we should learn how to apply equality in ourselves.Did you know that there's a video went popular of over the very first weekend of March. Its name, "Wealth Inequality in America," claims it all. It explains, in obvious, accessible images, that the space between the wealthiest and the poorest Americans is far vaster than most people have even imagined. With a personal finance you can pay things instead of taking money out of savings.

Re: How America Built the Racial Wealth Gap

Welcome Rianna! Unfortunately, finance, personal finance and economics is something that most Americans learn at an older age rather than at a young age. African Americans in particular, (IMO), often are just surviving financially, and often that is the primary financial focus , surviving and making ends meet until the next paycheck. It is usually people who were taught from a very young age, the value of money and the importance of saving over spending, manage their finances prudently.
