Spoken like a true c00nadian.
I’m talking about what I said earlier in the thread about group economics.
You have to find your “group” of individuals that are on the same wavelength.
your post was commenting on those that you would believe are in your group but aren’t the same wavelength
Maybe 70to 80% maybe exaggerated but the point holds true. Black people have this aversion of being mindful of the company we keep for some reason yet refusing to support each other consistently and running back to the same others that we complain look down on us. Every black person that I know that is doing well are doing so by knowing who to associate with...and yes we have significant low lives in our communities and the sooner we separate the good from the bad apples the sooner we will thrive much more.
I don't like talking real shyt because nikkas are gay and want a fairy tale ending.
Too many black people can't handle the reality of the world. That's why we are always dragged down. You safety net nikkas are stopping success.
honestly sir alot of the posts in this thread remind me of the the taking points about black americans culture and wealth building that black republicans like thomas sowell would make what you think @DEAD7 .
Been there and done that too. People on your "wavelength" are all good until the cash starts coming it. Then all of a sudden the don't want to put in the sweat equality or feel like they are owed more.
It all sounds good in theory but the self hatred is too ingrained in many to get passed it. I hope you find that group but at this point the only people's who will be in my group will be employees or contractors.
I don’t understand what is so unattainable about what is being said. You guys are fixating on an amount when it really is about a mindset.
You are telling me that you and 4 family members are incapable of saving 1K of your income in a span of a year. These aren’t talking points, this is real life.
People make their own lives more difficult and want to complain that things are out of their hands.
It’s all the same idea though. Not all contribute to your cause and ideas with money...
the idea of group economics extends beyond cash capital, imho.
Group economics implies partnership. Employees are not partners. It's not in the same line of thinking at all.
I never said anything about capital or limited contributions to capital.
You negros who get your black "experience" from worldstarhiphop, shaderoom, LSA and thecoli while content to be the token amongst your non-black circles, have the nerve to act like you some type of authority on the Black community and expect to be taken seriously crack me up. Everyone knows you do nothing but flap your gums.
How many Black entrepreneurs have you donated to? *crickets*
I live in it...I don’t draw my inspiration from
Social media you dumb dumb.
I already told you, 70%-80% (including you) need to go. Why would I donate you? I refuse to give to people that follow your ideology. It leads to failure.
We need to remove people like you first. We can't co-exist.
The nerve of a nikka that doesn't even have a support tag tell me about donating money.
It happens with us but it's not widespread. A lot of us truly are distrusting of each other. If we tried to do this and somebody's business was doing better a faction of us would take serious issue with it. This isn't in all cases but it happens. Way more than it should.
There are some legit setbacks out there that you can and will encounter, but at the end of the day you just can't give up. Everyone path is different. Some peoples goals and dreams are bigger than the next person's so they might take a lil while longer to get there. Success is not a race unless you make it one.
You can only do so much as a single person, so eventually you'll have to find your group. The thing is, the group is usually easier to find once your established or started building toward your goal on your own. You'll attract more people to what your doing once you actually start doing it. I for one don't like hearing nikkas explain ideas to me that they haven't started on yet.
I run a boxing website along with a podcast now with several fellow coli members that been going on strong since 2018. It would have prolly never came together if wasn't for us each doing our own thing from years earlier. Shoutouts to @patscorpio We added more nikkas and some panned out while some didn't, but nothing stopped us from creating the team we have now. When you truly believe in something you make it work. We set up the structure, built goals, shared responsibilities, put our own time and money in it, and etc...Doing all this helped us attend free boxing matches, meet other interesting/talented people, and even meet boxing legends before they passed on (Sweet Pea). All of this while having fun with it too.
Team work makes the dream work, but you gotta respect the process. Its not for everyone.
One thing I haven’t seen mentioned in this thread is the type of business you start. How easy do y’all think it’ll be to have a black owned business that appealed to other races? Koreans did it with black folks and beauty supply stores. Chinese/Mexicans did it with white folks and their restaurants.
White folks love bakeries. They love cheese spots. They love breweries. I wonder if a black owned business can be successful appealing to them. My question is rhetorical but I think doing that is key. There’s a lot of good responses in this thread. Gotta think positive about it
