According to the President, minorities and those living in rural areas are falling drastically behind many Americans in the recent technological revolution. Clinton also discussed specific plans to provide these groups greater access to the tools of modern industry and education in order to insure these people possess the same means to advancement as other Americans.

This has connections with many social psychological principles such as prejudice/racism and prosocial behavior.
