There is a notable existing economic gap between whites and African Americans. It is important to work out possible solutions of closing it up in order to improve the African American lives in the United States and more so in the metropolitan areas. Majority of the African Americans, lack access to decent jobs and good schools and suffer from crime related cases. Jobs are essential in improving African American communities to lift themselves out of poverty. The economic gap is a result of the poor economic conditions that are largely related with high unemployment. Creation of multiple job opportunities would help improve educational outcomes, as well as, reduce crime rates.
A large economic gap exists between the wealth of the minority households of the whites and the African Americans. That situation is brought about by the segregation in employment opportunities. The African American communities have a lower chance of getting job opportunities. These situations translate to lower chances of the African American working in health care sectors in relation to their acquired education. The health care professionals need to feel confident and skilled while working with patients from different backgrounds.
In order to close this gap effectively, there should be follow up programs ensuring that the children get appropriate education. There should also be interpersonal support for achievement trends of the children. Education acts as a base of prosperity in relation to wealth. The program should work on providing internet services to the youth to get them higher chances of positive exploration. Parents should also receive education to ensure that they are keen in following up on the school work of their children. In this way, the existing gap will get minimized as equity in education levels between whites and the African Americans becomes reality. On the other hand, there should be programs set to focus on employment of the African American youths in relation to skills acquired and their education levels and their abilities.
I agree that an education is indeed necessary to ensure as a first step in mitigating the issue of economic disparity between the Whites and African Americans. However, just focusing on education at the expense of talent will still seclude a fraction of youths with gifts outside the classroom.
The proposed idea of facilitating African American youths to have access to the internet will considerably lower the economic gap. The amount of useful information available online will ensure that they can cultivate their ideas to make them more successful.
