Abstract : People are a nation's greatest strength, providing the human resources necessary to create wealth and defend the state from foreign adversaries. Although numbers are important, it is the specific characteristics of the population that determine a nation's economic and security value. The United States must be able to call upon all of its citizens during war. But that is not possible today. A large segment of the African-American community is not ready for mobilization. Today, because of the serious societal problems, the United States cannot fully count on a large part of its black population in the defense of its national interests. Unless some changes are made now, the problems will only worsen as we move into the 21st century.
