Africans and African Americans Divided is based upon a number of papers written by the author as part of a research study for his M.A. in Computers and Technology in Education. This research looked specifically at the connections between economics and use of technology and their associated implications. The author¿s findings showed that the vast majority of middle and upper income populations (generally white) in the general population have access to and regularly use computers and the internet while lower income populations (specifically African and African American Males) lagged very far behind. While many of us haves may see technology as a luxury for those that can afford it, technology has become deeply embedded into our everyday life. We research products in order to find the best deal using the internet we search and apply for jobs online we study for degrees online, and teachers commonly post assignments or extra help on a website for their students. Few high schools, let alone universities and colleges, allow students to hand in hand written assignments. Can you even imagine handing in a hand written resume to a job? Not having access to this technology definitely puts the individual at a distinct disadvantage. Africans and African Americans Divided not only looks at the specific issues involved in these considerations but also looks to potential solutions. There are a variety of charities and organizations that do some very good work. However, donations and other forms of support could help improve the viability of these options. Africans and African Americans Divided is an important resource that should be found in every community, high school, and resource center library.
