  1. Here we have a black woman owning 2 7-11 grocery stores and sells black owned wines in her stores and is the daughter of entrepreneurs. Her pops own 3 Mcdonald’s franchises and her moms owns a successful realty business. These are the stories we need to hear more about. She’s also an HBCU graduate, like myself, Florida Memorial University, and I must say this. HBCU’s are great and just as good, if not better than any other college or university on this planet. They’re the same as any other institution of higher learning. Same degrees, same requirements of academic excellence, same knowledge, information, and same skill sets as the others. An engineering degree from Howard, Hampton, Morehouse, or Clark is just as good and just as valid as an engineering degree from Harvard, Yale, MIT, Princeton, Duke, or Stamford, just from a smaller school, more support, and for a mere fraction of the price too. So what we going for us as black people is just as good, if not better than what anyone has going for them. We don’t need to look down on ourselves or one another, or accept these disparaging narratives about ourselves and each other that come from the dominant society. We don’t need to listen to black misleaders like Claud Anderson, Antonio Moore, Yvette Carnell, Jared Ball, and other black pathologists who regurgitate all of the most demotivating, discouraging, and disparaging narratives told us over and over by mass media outlets who don’t speak us or our interests. Claud Anderson is the most toxic and poisonous that I’ve ever listened to. All he does is tell us how bad we’re doing, how we don’t stick together, how we’re a permanent underclass with no hope of ever achieving anything as a people, and got no other options but to be beggars and criminals. Not true, not true at all. He once said black people often times ain’t bright enough for community building. “All you can do is go broke, go on welfare, and go to jail”. I’ve heard say that several times. George Fraser, gives positive reports and updates about black people, especially black entrepreneurs, while addressing the issues and challenges at hand that we face. The wealth gap, the homeownership, and income gaps between blacks and other groups are there and they are real, we can’t pretend these things aren’t happening, but to say that we are in this constant state of crisis mode, 24/7 is just absolutely ridiculous. Calm down everybody, it’s gonna be alright. One Love Family.
