    Thank you for posting this OP. Never knew about him. Like the way this guy thinks. He's top secret with his wealth(probably an hardcore Machiavellian) which most people should be. But more importantly as a black man like that his wealth is from non-entertainment ventures like most wealthy black people.

    "
    Watkins was a longtime attorney and confidant of Birmingham Mayor Richard Arrington, Jr., creator of what some argue was the most powerful political machine outside Chicago.

    In addition to his legal career, Watkins received national media coverage for his attempts to purchase The Minnesota Twins[1] in 2002 and The Anaheim Angels[2] in 2003.

    In 2005, Watkins became the only litigator to successfully defend a NYSE company CEO against Sarbanes-Oxley charges, a legal victory profiled in both Fortune magazine[3] and National Law Journal.

    In March 2012, Watkins signed an exclusive contract with the government of Namibia to mine uranium for sale to nuclear power stations worldwide.[4] In July 2012, Watkins' Namibian-based energy services company was awarded a petroleum exploration license by the Namibian Ministry of Mines and Energy."
    I'm not trying to shyt on that breh, but if you read that you know there is some corruption involved in his wealth. He's got reasons to stay low profile.

    If we invest in our upbringing there would be ALOT of opportunity for [financial] growth.

    Edit: entertainment is like the fun form of education. If it's coming from the right people :sas2: #DumbItDown
