Hmm, it turned out that ending the “digital divide” didn’t help after all
When blacks were using the Internet less than other groups, that made them oppressed and backward, and in need of special government assistance. But now that blacks are using the Internet more than other groups, that makes them oppressed and backward, and in need of special government assistance. What’s the common element here?

During the 1990s, liberal politicians led by Al Gore warned about the so-called “digital divide” which left minorities and the poor with less access to the Internet. New figures show that the situation is now reversed, with children in the nation’s poorest households devoting ten hours more each week to the internet and TV than middle class kids, wasting time primarily on social networks and video games.
