Being among African Americans residing in the Austin community, Chicago in United States I believe that my ancestors were native from the Sub-Saharan Africa.
In this case I find that being one of the African-Americans I am a descendant from the Africans who were captives that were enslaved within the boundaries of the United States although some of them originated from the voluntary African Immigrants from Africa, whereby, in the year 1860, 3.5 million Africans were enslaved in the Southern part of the United States while 500,000 lived free across the United States.
According to the research I conducted I found that under this population the white people are described as those people with an origin from Europe, Middle East or North Africa, the African –American or the popularly known as the “Blacks” are said to have originated from any black race of the Sub-Saharan Africa, the American Indians who are also referred to as the Alaska Native are those with an origin from any of the people of the North, Central and South America and are popularly known to be maintaining the affiliation of its tribe.
The Asian Americans are the people originating from the Far East, South East Asia and the Indian sub-continent and lastly the Hispanics, these is the population that are said to be bi-racial. (Jessica and Claudette, February 2002.)
America is a racial country, which consists of many different nation people. In the period of 17th and 18th century, Africans were the main colonials in American. By the American Revolution, 20 percent of the overall population in the thirteen colonies was of African descent. The legalized practice of enslaving blacks occurred in every colony.

In the Austin Chicago I found that there are more people from different origins who do not look like me; their ethnic group and the majority of them are the Asian Americans who I found to be people originating from the Far East, South East Asia and the Indian sub-continent who reside in our City. Under this we find that the Asian American populations vary depending on the immigration status, citizenship, acculturation and language, whereby we find that the Asian Americans originating from the Middle Eastern part of the Asian continent are defined as Whites rather than Asians. (Jessica and Claudette, February 2002.)
How Are the Asian Americans Different From the African American?
According to research I therefore deduce that in areas resided by the Asian American population, it is highly developed, taking an example of Chicago where the Asian Americans are said to be well represented in several professional sectors through which they are said to be earning higher wages especially in the sectors that involve business and technology even though they are poorly represented in the higher management levels.
Under this I find that in the year 2002 the businesses for this ethnic group in Chicago had recorded a number of over 1.1 million businesses where they employed more than 2million workers and they had revenue of above $326 billion.
Leadership in My Community
Under this, I find that inequality exist within the ethnic groups in Austin community, whereby according to the survey done it indicates that disparities exist among the ethnic groups under which it is said that this inequality is practiced where, higher incomes whites and Asians are discriminated from my community the Blacks the Native Americans.
I therefore say that in Austin community many leaders come from the rich who take the prerogative to solve problems in Chicago. Solutions put forward by the rich have not worked at all, but have made much harsher the African American conditions for living where the problem of us the African Americans get neglected, causing the inter-depended equations to get ever more lopsided and we are back to where we started from. In our normal problems, this shows that there are no solutions that work for the poor and that if there were, communities like mine would already be using them. (Lupton & Power 2002)

The need for dependency makes the people in Austin community to be looking upon the media to be given information about the events taking place and the products present in the market globally, so they have to tolerate the messages by the media so as they get the information about a particular event taking place. In this case we find that the people read, listen and interpret the message depending on their socio-economic class, gender, age, education and their ethnic backgrounds. In this manner we find that they are influenced by the media to carry out a particular action or even to copy the concepts of life shown in the message that is put across to them through advertisements.
Under this, I have found out that there is always some disinformation about my ethnic group particularly in |Austin where I live whereby this practice is not only practiced by the business owners, but it is also used by various political leaders and the government, who influence the media organizations to disseminate certain information that is meant to undermine the African American community and their leaders in the government.
Because of these conditions, I find that many people are made to take an action depending on the message given to them by the media who are surely, aware that the
