What is the affluent Ghetto? Come find out

All about Me ~ (JLuv) & My Mission!

The Affluent Ghetto, what is that?  It is the assumption that affluence should not be associated with race or ethnicity and that it’s correlation with socioeconomic standing, is not supported and is no more valid than increased ice cream sales on a hot summer day.   Unfortunately affluence is more than that and is associated with several things such as social standing, income, employment, your network of friends and even the neighborhood where you live in and the school where you or your children attend. Its influence has the potential to be one of the most influential factors in determining success and in my opinion is the primary reason why so many people are hindered in their social mobility within society.

 

The affluent Ghetto examines these topics in addition to providing culturally diverse materials for parents & educators.
