  8. We have this ever pervading myth that people in black urban neighborhoods have no money to spend and no financial capital to draw from, it’s not true. The problem is that this financial capital is not properly aggregated and harnessed to the wheels of group economics. The money in these neighborhoods is being squandered on Tom Foolery. Booze, Cigarettes, Lottery Tickets, Gambling, Hair Weaves, Chinese Food, Fast Food, and other miscellaneous garbage. Not on Life Insurance, Stocks, Bonds, and other investments, not on education, and not on things that create personal growth and development. Money ain’t the problem. It’s how the money is spent. But it’s foolish for anyone not to invest in Urban Black America because there is so much untapped and unutilized financial capital in the black community it’s unbelievable. Anyone who says otherwise need to slap themselves.

    • Finance needs to become a substitute for the language(s) that was (were) stolen from black people and it should be spoken every single day. “Hey girl, cash flow, real estate, net worth, generational wealth, home ownership ? Sistahhhhh, entrepreneurship, return on investment, balance sheet, profits AND retirement plan!!!”And most important black children as do other groups need to be given a full understanding of money – how it works, its importance, and how to use it to their benefit early and throughout their development. It all needs to start yesterday!!

      • Dianne using the blame ideology of what was stolen from us is getting a bit worn out.. I can say just speaking English and understanding it is still part of moving forward. To counter, how many years since we were stolen have we progressed as a people? What type of progress have we as a people moved the needle.. Yes, I agree we should be teaching but also relearning what we are teaching and have been taught 24/7. I live in Europe and its equally hard to get our SubSaharian families that risk to come here to understand financial issues. Yes the younger kids are in the next phase of understanding it but for too many arent…
