2. In my opinion, if STRIVE were duplicated nationwide, i do not see how it would have a major effect on job stability by african american males. Seriously, if someone wants to go to work, and make a decent living, then they will. I don't see how being a member of a stupid organization is going to change someone's whole way of life. In fact, instead of attending meetings, and taking part in STRIVE those people should be at their job, making money and supporting themselves instead of depending on others or making lame excuses.
3. Ok, as for dysfunctional families being a reason for a poor labor force is ridiculous. I do think a certain degree of racism still exists today, and i also think that incarceration rates could have a negative effect on the labor force. The solution to that is, if those people had a steady job in the first place, chances are a lot less of them would be in prison. I don't have the answer to racism, some people are just ignorant.
