I strongly stand behind the notion that young black boys and girls drop out of high school because they know what they are learning won't help them survive in the American system. In school, they are being taught to depend and rely on the American government to meet their needs but living in a household where there is no father and the mother is on welfare doesn't provide the kind of security they desire. So, they run towards Capitalism, they run towards the street.
In Cornernomics, they find a purpose and a way to survive. They become the CEO's of the block.
