A lot of us Black Folks didn’t have discussions at the dinner table about saving and investing, so that’s why a lot of us grew up with poor financial habits. We watched our parents struggle and beg for money from auntie nem, now most of us doing the same thing. See you have to educate yourself on finances and break that chain before your kids go through the same cycle.
It’s time we stop dying and leaving our kids with nothing, meaning they have to start over left with no advantage to get ahead, leaving them to start completely over at Ground Zero.
Let’s just hope the nigga could dribble a ball, run a touchdown, or get a record deal, am I right? Oh, let’s don’t put him over here with these Business Men who actually learn about finances and investing in the Stock Market. It is time we wake up or we will forever be left behind, thinking a sport could out beat Financial Literacy.
I know times are rough, but we can still manage to put up for a rainy day and invest for retirement. We have to do better with the income we already have, because if we don’t we will just spend ferociously. Our mindsets have to change and that means through education.
