23182, Don't get me wrong

I am not saying American Black people don't have a work ethic. I am saying that Black Americans are less likely to believe in the American Dream and don't persue it through education the way west Indian and African folks do. A lot of Kids in the Hood Believe that the only opportuntiy to get out of the hood is threw athleetics, But did you know that more money is available in the form of Academic Scholarships than Athletic? I didn't know that til recently and I don't a lot of Black Folks know that.
