The holidays are amongst us. That means gifts, excess food and decorations for your lawn and house. The black spending power is set to reach 1 TRILLION dollars annually. Yet, we are jobless and uneducated and flailing in the wind. If I may make an honest observation about most black people, myself included:
Looking good and having material objects is more important than going to school, having entrepreneurship, having property to pass on to our kids and building up our communities. Have you ever noticed how Jews and other non-black ethnic groups will cram themselves into a small apartment and work like beasts to buy individual houses and pay off each other’s mortgages in 5 years? Have you ever noticed whenever an ethnic, non-black person enters into a business, everyone within that group will recruit all other peoples of that same ethnicity to shop in their stores exclusively?
