“African Americans spend over $30 billion a year on technology orienting products or services. It doesn’t matter if it’s a video game, a Blackberry, iPad or a Benz 6.5 with the infra red in the window, it is technology. Most of all, we need to start showing more African Americans that are helping to develop these technologies, and not thinking that the white CEO of that company did it by himself. The same way we have awards shows for the entertainment industry, magazines covering the hair industry, or even the NAACP recognizing compliments by several different industries, and yet no one recognizes the technology industry. Let’s teach our kids how to make that video game and get paid, instead of buying that video game and letting someone else get paid,” comments Evans.
