The blogosphere is filled with posts like this one: “We should all be thankful for the freedom and progress we’ve enjoyed in the past 60 years.
The freedom to be black and proud.
The progress we have made in the last 50 years.
All of these things have made us stronger and better than we ever could have imagined.”
I’m not sure how the phrase “great progress” has been used to describe the fact that, since the mid-1990s, African Americans have experienced far less economic growth than other racial and ethnic groups.
In the late 1990s, for example, African American households had median household incomes of $35,000 a year, compared to $67,000 for white households.
Today, median household income for African American families is $34,000, compared with $72,000.
A recent study by researchers at Georgetown University’s Center on Education and the Workforce found that for the next 40 years, African-American men, who make up about 10 percent of the workforce, will earn just over 40 percent of their female counterparts, while African- American women will earn less than 30 percent.
The gap between black and white median household earnings is the largest among any racial or ethnic group, the study found.
The disparity is even larger among African-Americans who are under age 65.
For example, for every $1,000 earned by African Americans between ages 25 and 54, African African men will earn $1.40 less than white men.
This difference in earnings is larger than the difference between the poverty rates of African American men and women.
Even though African American adults have experienced economic setbacks in recent decades, the social and economic challenges facing African Americans remain as acute as ever.
When I first arrived in the city in the late 1970s, there were more than 6,000 African American residents in the downtown area, where I grew up.
Today there are about 6,500 African Americans, according to the Census Bureau.
I think I might have been born in the right place at the right time, but I wasn’t born in America.
The problem with using words like progress and progressivity to describe African American progress, and to refer to the African-american community as a whole, is that the term implies that there is no progress, no progress toward equality or progress in any area of life.
This is what happens when we are not given the tools we need to make sure that our voices are heard and that our communities are not left behind.
It’s a false way to view the African Americans who make a living writing blogs.
Many of these bloggers are self-employed.
They do not earn their living writing about things they care about.
The bloggers don’t even work full-time, as the rest of us do.
And the blogs, like most other online communities, are not free.
So how can we build a more diverse and inclusive blogging community?
First, we have to recognize the fact of the reality of the blogosphere.
Bloggers, bloggers, bloggers.
For every blogger there are thousands of others, and they often have different ideas about what it means to be a blogger.
They also have different interests.
We should not use the word progress to describe what is happening to African Americans and other communities.
Progress is a vague term, and it’s often used to denote a short-term change in direction.
Some bloggers are taking steps to be more diverse.
One blog, The Blogger’s Journey, is a place where bloggers of color talk about how they have become better writers, or how they’re taking steps toward creating a more inclusive blogosphere in their communities.
Others are writing to be “better” in the blogs they create.
There are blogs that are more focused on activism.
These blogs are more political and include topics like civil rights, gun rights, the death penalty, and the treatment of police officers.
Some bloggers have a political agenda.
Others, like writer and activist Maddy Clark, are writing about race and racial injustice.
But, most of all, there are the bloggers who are not writing blogs, but are actively engaging with other bloggers.
And we need them.
