Abstract:

There is a general consensus that conditions in the African-American community reflect less than ideal circumstances. Frequent areas of focus include education, or the lack thereof, the absence of a spiritual/religious orientation, and the deterioration of an appropriate ethical framework, often referred to as “family values”. In addition, observers often refer to the “lack of leadership” as a contributing factor to the dysfunctionality. The combination of these components leads to deficiencies in employment, economic status, family structure and health conditions. It is also generally accepted that these circumstances are driven by a number of traits exhibited by the inhabitants of this community. It is as if Black people have genetically developed lower levels of “good” attributes, and naturally prefer an existence where conditions are less favorable than those in the general community. Over time, most attempts at improving the undesirable conditions have proven generally unsuccessful because the methods are reactive and are focused on what is done, as opposed to why it is done. This paper will present a framework for examining the issues from a behavioral paradigm that is grounded in motivation, not occurrence.
