Re: “Rich, Black, Flunking

It is clear that African Americans can achieve academically. It is clear that African Americans overcome racism to achieve academically. It is clear that moving to an affluent community is not the answer to academic success without parental support and supervision.
It sounds like these parents worked without communicating with thier children around the dinner table about their jobs/careers, community and school. In many afflent homes, the children have play stations, telephones, computers, etc in thier rooms. Therefore, they do not have to ineract with their famiies and the parents do not require them to do so. As a result, parents are not communicating to their children the to need or expectation to achieve. It appears that some parents are not providing their children with the knowledge and skills to deal with peer pressure as it conflicts with family values. Did I miss "family values" as a part of the discussion?
