Environmental Factors Causing African American Invisibility

At the very highest levels of American society, the African American is rendered invisible. In order to be a ‘viable’ candidate for the American presidency, even Barack Obama must avoid being perceived as black.

    Debtor Nation:

    In 2006, The United States was the World’s biggest debtor nation, posting a Trade Deficit of more than $61 Billion, and total debt of Trillions of dollars.

    One of the biggest contributors to America’s status as debtor is the availability of inexpensive manufacturing capabilities in China, as more and more U.S.-based businesses spend vast amounts of money in China for that purpose.
