“You spend millions on brands that don’t even support nor care for your community existence” – Justin A. Starks
Yesterday, I watched a YouTube story titled “How to sell to the Negro”, this video opened my eyes and made absolutely all the right sense. One line I vividly remember that stops me from spending my hard earned money to my white counterparts is “The negro people already feel like they don’t belong, by associating themselves in rich fabrics just as whites do, no matter the cost, they would feel of high importance even though they will never truly pass the glass ceiling of wealth as whites in America”. I was devastated to understand this logic! We have to stop paying a high price and thinking a 400 dollar shirt is going to make us feel special. Use that money to buy investments and start a low funding business. We have to develop that economic mindset in order to produce more opportunities within the Black Community.

In addition, growing up in the Black Community I have seen directly and mentally the effects and still do how materialistic items are valued and how we love to crowd the streets on a Good Payday Weekend. We need to understand our monies can no longer go to these white corporations. They already set shop all through our neighborhoods since after slavery and are taking our wealth while putting us to work for little to nothing underpaying us and telling us they aren’t hiring. It’s imperative we learn how to build wealth and create jobs for ourselves. Also, White America own 78 percent of the wealth in America that’s why we have no economic say so when it comes our own hiring process, careers, or living conditions. We need to get more educated faces in these seats to look out for our kind just as they do themselves.

Understanding this will hopefully lead you to handling and seeing money different. This is not an racial letter, this is the true facts that we need to wake up and see here in America. We have 11 times less of net Worth than Whites and just under 3,000 dollars short of Hispanics. We are in last place when it comes to wealth, that’s why higher officials like The “Higher Ups” (No Names) even call your black ass lazy when it comes to “Handling Money” on National TV!! If he thinks that and say it so proudly just imagine what other leading officials think of you. It isn’t like we aren’t making money, hence that we made 1.1 Trillion dollars as a whole but we don’t have a strong financial literacy. We don’t see the bigger picture. That’s why these rooms will continue to be filled with white liberals and conservatives that only persuade you to vote for them and feed you bullshit. They don’t care about your Black Community. Our community have been the same from every presidency no matter democratic or republican. Seems like it’s only getting worse by the century. We have to build our communities and thrive, not give in to a life of poverty and die.
Question: Do you truly understand you control your wealth?
