Almost all the successful black folks I know and I become more than an acquaintance with have at one time told me that they participate in community outreach with the basic goal of telling young folks that they matter and have something to contribute to the world. If whole generations are being raised with the view that they don't, then that generation isn't going to try, but rather desire to check out. The fundamental issue is self esteem and confidence passed down generationally.
