Millennials are the largest and most diverse generation of Americans; yet, African-Americans and Latino millennials are more likely to be economically vulnerable than their white and Asian-American counterparts.
African-American and Latino millennials are more likely:
According to the Declaration of Independence, life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness are unalienable rights:
"...all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness. it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness..."
So besides being morally and ethically unacceptable, any violation of a person's unalienable rights, like all 10 of the aforementioned, are violations of the Declaration of Independence. Solely based upon ethnicity, we are divided, inequities are manufactured, and accesses are denied.
1. happiness = well-being = wellness = health
2. White = Asian-American = African-American = Latino
3. All men (people) are created equal
Therefore, 1 + 2+ 3 should be
equal wellness (health) for all men (people);
yet, there are inequities, vulnerabilities, and divisions that fracture this diverse group according to ethnic group.
Q: So how is it that millenials (and other groups) are segmented this way?
A: Wellness is the key to health. Without (the eight) dimensions of wellness, health of the individual, community and nation are impaired. In this case, intellectual, social, and spiritual wellness are not at the level needed for health. The outcome of this lack wellness is financial illness, financial distress, and financial inequity. To a lesser degree, but still importantly, occupational wellness and physical wellness are also contributory to the overall lack of health.
Knowledge of concepts and ideas and the ability to think critically connecting current events to their history
The ability to to think beyond self while connecting to others in your community and society, desiring equality and owning the responsibility for ensuring that all have a fair chance, access, and (real) equity potential across the board, regardless of ethnicity, income, age-even when it's not Christmastime.
Creation of peace and harmony within, as well as in the community at-large, essentially doing the right thing (All I Really Need To Know I Learned In Kindergarten) at all times, but especially when no one is looking (=integrity )
