Currently, Eric is crowdfunding for his newest innovation, 'TinyStic', a portable HDMI device that uses wireless Miracast technology to turn your phone into a PC.

Anyhow, Eric was interviewed by Declassified Agenda and he shared his thoughts on the challenges that face Blacks in Technology and how he sees African Americans succeeding in the information technology industry.

Eric laid out some fairly provocative opinions on the challenges that face Blacks in technology. Do you agree or disagree with his thoughts on the matter?
