Let’s face it, Black (“BIPOC“) people: the tech industry, largely controlled by White and Asian people, will not be kind to us unless we are individuals with the skills and talents to save a tech company from actually failing. There is both the racial element and that of arrogance because these ethnic groups emphatically believe that Black people are merely entertainers, not scientists, technologists, and intellectuals.
I’ve said it over and over again, as have many prominent Blacks throughout the global business community, that if Blacks don’t pull their intellectual and financial resources together and start taking the necessary risks by investing heavily in their own ideas and building their own durable and sustainable companies, the 21st century will fundamentally fail African Americans and the broader Black community, stripping it of its political powers and, to a great extent, denying it the opportunity to prosper through existing and new developments of institutions and corporations, along with barricading the points of entry that buttress them. The dissolution of affirmative action and the whitewashing of African American history and American history are the telltale signs that America is flirting with the resurrection of its ugly past. Wake up! Let’s lay off the booze and recreational drugs. As a layman of geopolitical socioeconomic affairs, even I know that the 21st century will determine the strength, resilience, wherewithal, and fate of African Americans and Black people.
