The 21st century & beyond will be an ENTIRELY different century than the 21st century in America. Those who have the specialized skills & relevant education will thrive socioeconomically. Conversely, those who have non-specialized skills & an irrelevant education will sink, becoming poorer, even becoming a PERMANENT underclass. The latter include college graduates, especially in the humanities & liberal arts & those who were downsized from middle-level white collar jobs. Of course, those without or w/very little skills & the LEAST education will be regressed into the lower classes/underclass. Race & ethnicity will be less of a factor in this; however, socioeconomics will be a factor as to who will succeed, even thrive & who ....WON'T. The middle class will be significantly reduced. There will be an elite, upper class while there will be a widening lower class & an even widening underclass. The poor & underclass will be slaves of the elite, upper class. Those who don't work in minimum wage jobs will be imprisoned en masse to serve the purposes of the elite, upper class. Your thoughts?
"Race & ethnicity will be less of a factor in this" - well don't have a link on this but read elsewhere that the white male in the future will still be the center of attention. MGTOWs
But let me pull up something:
Silicon Valley Is Male, White, And Asian For A Reason
* Ninety-four percent are either white or Asian.
* In the 1960s, women made up 30% to 50% of all programmers,
* how now hiring women or people of color entailed “lowering the bar”
* negative stereotypes can negatively affect the performance of those people being stereotyped.

middle, upper middle, and upper class parents wouldn't think of doing to their children in terms of their children's socioeconomic success, education, and future achievement?

I think a good way of evening out inequality in society is to only allow poor people to have guns. Rich people in favour of gun ownership frequently say "If evil people have guns then we must have guns too"....
