"No Wealth In The Hood" Follow up by Matthew Wulukau June 25 2013
The last blog we posted got a few responses digging deeper into the issues and solutions to Wealth in the urban communities.I felt it was appropriate to post this now with the excessive amount of crime and murder going on this week. So i want to introduce a Morehouse Graduate brother Matthew Wulukau very intelligent young man and active in our community.
Greetings Clarence From San francisco CA- I hope this email finds you in good spirits. I am excited about the eagerness you have to raise awareness in our underserved communities. - I believe it's extremely imperative for African Americans (Blacks) to wake up!!! 1st we must gain a sense of self identity. We must know who we are as individuals & a people. 2nd we must understand the face value of the dollar and find out how (Money) actually works. We must learn about credit, bonds, stocks, mutual funds, Hedge funds Roth IRA, Life Insurance, especially Life Insurance. Life Insurance can be used as a source to generate revenue. In addition to that we must obtain EDUCATION. We must have general knowledge about everything. If we do these things we can control who we put in office. It's Money that elects our leaders not votes. (pay attention)!!! If we practice these things we can have enough Money generated to where we can rebuild our community's we can educate our own. We can have enough to sustain ourselves. ( Underserved community ) Why is it that we don't do business with each other but rather spend with every other race? Why is it that we are the number 1 Consumer with over a total of 800 Billion Dollars in expenditures. ( Clothes, Shoes, Cars, Bling etc... ) Why? Matthew Wulukau Jr
"Stories By Vijay" May 20 2013
Vijay Tidwell is interesting human let me explain why. Vijay is a young man of many talents from Track and Field, Photography, College Graduate, YouTube Sensation (Class of Mv) just to name of few. You may have seen some of his incredibly funny videos where he is impersonating superstar rapper "2 Chainz". We here at TheCleedus.com respect Vijay highly thats why we sponsor him cause he represents what we stand for. Recently while I was being nosey on Instagram i seen a very insipring story by Vijay i asked him to send it to me its about a cancer survivor he met Please Read:
Met a very inspirational man over the weekend. He is a 23 year old cancer
survivor. He debuted a film about his fight with the deadly disease and how he
conquered. What I found so inspirational about this kid was that even after he
beat cancer, he didn't hesitate to give back to the community and inspire others
who may suffer from the same issues. I didnt even know him before the weekend as
more than a fan of my youtube videos but it was only right to support someone as
positive as himself. I wore the "Motivate and Inspire" tee as representation of
all the good people out there doing something positive to impact our's and
- Vijay aka @iamvididdy
I thought this was very dope. Im a big fan of when people can be inspired by each other and we people can share their struggles with the world.
Its VERY easy to start looking for sympathy or pity.
It takes courage to put your life out to be seen by the masses.
In the words of the great Heavy D "BE INSPIRED"
Check out Vijay rockin the Motivate and Inspire tee and
David Carcamo rockin that Classic He Who Has The Gold Makes The Rules crewneck.
Aftermath Of Mothers Day!!! May 13 2013
Yesterday i spent quality time with my family for Mothers Day and there was a point where we started to speak on some of the things we appreciate about our mother and noticed how proud and inspired my mother seem to be as we expressed how we felt. This made me remember something that i have heard over and over again and thats GRATITUDE aka APPRECIATION. Often we forget to appreciate others cause we forget to appreciate OURSELVES. Its very motivating when you sit back and remember some of the great things you have accomplished it inspires you to do more great things. Don't get this confused with being self-centered because its a very thin line but sometimes you have to remember you can and HAVE done some great things and you can do many more great things. Well thats all for now so moral of the story find ways to motivate yourself one way is to remember some of the great things you have done already. Have a good week and beinspired to be great
