Prior to the airing of the fourth installment of Soledaid O'Brien's BLACK IN AMERICA series which will focus on the lack of diversity and representation of black entrepreuners in Silicon Valley, a heated debate has occurred on the web.
Michael Arrington, a Silicon Valley investor and capital venturalist, stated that he has difficulty finding new high tech business startup wholly owned, initiated or operated by African Americans.
The South Bay(San Jose CA surrounding area) is the home of many well known high tech companies. The corporate headquarters of companies such as GOOGLE, CISCO, APPLE, HP, FACEBOOK, SUN MICROSYSTEMS, ORACLE and the location of major universities such as Stanford, UC Berkley, creates an environment whereby the ideas of the best & the brightest, coupled with financial backing of venture capital investment companies, fosters a climate of entrepreunership.
The admissions requirements to these highly academically competitive universities are some of the toughest in the country. The percentage of AA undergraduates is 10%; graduate students 3%. This could account for the difficulties Mr. Arrington alluded to in his interview. If more black students excelled in math and science subjects, could this acheivement gap be closed?
