There could be many reasons why African Americans are more sustainable to social media sites than any other ethic group. I do believe that digital divide plays an important role in the study as well. Most African Americans are raised in urban areas where internet sometimes is foreign. Being an case in point, I’ve always had to update a social media profile while I had access to a computer in school or at a friends house. Even downloading music or watching youtube videos was something I did frequently there. In urban, poverty stricken areas where African Americans and Latino reside in most of America; gun fire, drug selling, and basketball was common. The internet was a way to get away from everything if one could get access to it. I remember all my friends running to McDonalds once we found out there was free Wii-Fii. It is a fact that people tend to use things more frequently or have a crave for something more if they do not have direct access to the entity or thing they want. A large portion of African Americans do not have a good computer with internet. This reason is why percentages of African Americans on social media is so high. Because of the supply being so low, the demand gets high. I agree with the evidence of a digital divide simply for the reason of supply and demand and my experience growing up.
