Through the years and despite our efforts, we as a people have never been considered good or worthyenough for fair and just treatment. The African American society has alwaysbeen held to an unmeasurable standard. But through all adversity, the African American society hasshown an impeccable amount of courage and strength to overcome.

Whenthese jobs became outsourced and the loss of manufacturing jobs were lessen,the African American society, felt undermined of their opportunities foremployment. According to Johnson Jr.
