    same way we're "conditioned" to stop a traffic lights?


    And what Rich said is true for a lot of black people, I don't know how anyone can disagree with it.

    whether you think he actually knows anyone in the hood is irrelevant.

    too many people are careless with their money and don't think ahead.

    he said a lot, he didn't say "all." and it's true.

    so there's no need to get all sensitive about him stereotyping.

    your comparison between mental conditioning of slavery and "conditioning" of paying federal taxes was laughable.

    Maybe we need to revisit Marcus Garvey on economics?


    Marcus Garvey and Capitalism:



    " While racial pride and unity played important roles in Garvey's black nationalism, he touted capitalism as the tool that would establish African Americans as an independent group. His message has been called the evangel of black success, for he believed economic success was the quickest and most effective way to independence. Interestingly enough, it was white America that served as a prime example of what blacks could accomplish.

    "Until you produce what the white man has produced," he claimed, "you will not be his equal."

    In 1919 he established the Negro Factories Corporation and offered stock for African Americans to buy. He wanted to produce everything that a nation needed so that African Americans could completely rely on their own efforts. At one point the corporation operated three grocery stores, two restaurants, a printing plant, a steam laundry, and owned several buildings and trucks in New York City alone..."

    How Blacks spend money is a part of our problem.

    We spend a lot of money on things that depreciate instead of spending more on things that appreciate or grow in value. Blacks spend billions every year on cars,clothes,cd's,alcohol etc but don't invest money in equal amounts.

    After thinking about it, there really is no such thing as living "ghetto fabulous". On average, six out of ten Americans, regardless of race, are in debt (that figure may have risen since I last checked).

    Yes, I see Black people who live in shacks and struggle to pay a note for a hummer sitting in their driveway. But I also see Black families try to move out to the suburbs and buy houses that they can barely pay the monthly note on as well. Either way you look at it, that's not living "ghetto fabulous" - that's trying to live the American dream.

    Now supposed the majority of those billions Blacks spend were being spent with Black owned businesses? Just imagine the businesses and jobs Blacks could be creating for ourselves.
