I'm sure at this age you have heard all about the horror stories of slavery which was a sad time for our people and still to this very day affects us as a whole in the black community after slavery ended our people still suffered. I call it generational slavery many didn't have the chance to get a proper education to learn how to read write or do simple math or learn about credit owning a business or where to even start. Many people today struggle with reading comprehension and simple math which causes uses to get scammed out of money, enter into bad contracts and put us in low paying jobs that don't pay enough for us to survive. One good thing I can say about our people is that we are hard workers and will go get an education. In reality how far will that get us? In no way am I shaming anyone for going to school and working I am saying we can do that and more. We weren't taught generational wealth or how to manage our finances or how to obtain good credit. Many of the big corporations are owned not by us but guess what they make a profit off us and we stay living mediocre. Come on little brown girl do you see where I'm going with this?
