Re: [blacktechies] Pattern Matching, the New Jim Crow

Thanks for sharing that article. I have to agree with you. I too work in IT and have been over 10 years despite the fact I am only 31. In all my years I have only seen a handful of African American people working in IT. I used to teach computer literacy as well and your right they tend to pay no mind or make it seem like it's a waste of time to learn. It's sad but I think IT has been a life changing experience.

Thanks for sharing
