That is so true about high school kids not living up to their potential. There were so many that I wanted to slap upside their head because they were making honor roll throughout their education, only to go to a community college, if any college at all. The biggest thing I feel that impedes achievement in the black community is lack of confidence and a lack of an example, not lack of resources. Even if you use your resources in the right way, you can still build yourself bigger and better things in the future. It doesn't matter how long it takes, as long as you get there. Defeatist attitudes dont help anyone.
