"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
"SHUT UP".....its GOOD for YOU May 16 2013
I often speak with my peers from all walks of life and everybody has found it difficult to deal with a specific type of person. The type of person I am speaking of is what i call "Extra Opinionated". These "Extra Opinionated" people usually mean well and genuinely want to help which everyone can appreciate. But sometimes these people can be a bit much to deal with. "Extra Opinionated" people sometimes can start to ramble on and on about things they have no knowledge of at ALL and can come off ignorant but confident in their ignorance. These people all of a sudden turn into professionals in every field and every walk of life and when it gets difficult when they ATTEMPT to force their ignorance on YOU. Most people don't want to be rude so you go along with it because you know they believe their own ignorance so much and they enjoy sharing this ignorance with you so much that if you gave them facts they would not understand it anyway. So here is how we fix this cause i am a person who LOVES to give his opinion this is what we do before we speak on a topic lets RESEARCH it or have a detailed experience to back up the opinion we are giving. If we have no knowledge of a certain topic lets SHUT UP and admit we really don't know what we are talking about it is nothing wrong with NOT knowing something, you take time out to learn is the beauty of not knowing. (ex: my punctuation is horrible but writing these blogs has inspired me to learn) moral of the story SHUT UP and learn before you speak. thank you and blessings to you all
