    Hello All,

    Glad to find this forum. I wanted to find a forum to learn the perspectives of other Black people and share my own perspectives on current events, politics, and economics.

    I think this country and the free market system can lead to prosperity. My experience in commercial real estate shed light on investments and wealth in this country. Not everyone is going to agree with me. With that said, I like respectful debate and believe disagreement is one of the spices of life. Count on an open mind from me especially in the face of compelling data.

    Generally, I would say I have a more positive outlook than most people and believe this country provides citizens (and non citizens) with real opportunity.

    Let me close by saying that I live in a low-income part of Washington, DC and experience first hand what happens in the inner city. Life in a poor neighborhood has its ups and downs, but overall, I think we are trending to better outcomes every day (even if the wins are small, I believe they are adding up).
