    there are those who come into the site and give us the 411.
    they know what is going on. they got special sources of information that the rest of us do not know about.

    if you dis agree or even dare ask a question you are told that you are "blind". you just don't know.

    so i wonder, since we have so many who are so far above the average negro, why ain't we rich?

    I have a question for you!

    Do you see or feel that there are really 'negroes' anywhere on this site?

    If so then i can see why you would think that you're not rich!! Again, you HATE white supremacy, yet are judging how rich a black person is BY WHITE SUPREMACY STANDARDS!

    That would constitute to one being "blind" as you stated but put in the mouth of others.

    Now i doubt that you will see this because i think you have me on ignore....lol

    But this question seems to be a follow up from the other thread that you changed the title to recently which means you are still not satisfied and may never be with any answers to your many multidimentional questions....

    - now i'm not going to take this as a poke at my name, but since you asked. If the "elders" are not going to do it, then somebody has too!

    Why aint who rich?

    With all due respect what does the question have to do with common sense?

    the great historian John Jackson died broke, so did Chanclor Williams, Dr Clarke was barely making it and both Dr King and Malcolms family were living on the charity of harry Belafonte' and Ossie Davis, and both men were practicly broke before they were assasinated

    so what would having knowledge have to do with being rich?

    Rush Limbaugh is rich
    George Bush Jr is rich
    Lady Gaga is rich
    Lil Wayne is rich
    Tyler Perry is rich
    J Z is rich
    David Duke is rich
    Charlie Sheen is rich
    Dick Cheney is rich
    Rumsfield is rich

    and now that Donald Trump is running for president it has been exposed that he is unable to tie his shoes and whistle at the same time so what

    is this question based on?

    "if you so smart why ain't you rich" is an old expression, maybe before your time, it is not meant literally.
    my point is that we have all these people who are clearly superior, at least in their own minds, why arn't we doing better.

    I hate to say p, but I agree with you James. @info-moetry I hear that money is a construct of supremacy (am I right on what I think you're saying)? The only problem I have with that is I think all of us who post here have to at least have some type of I ternet bill that we pay, which to me means we're by default participating in the "agenda.". If I'm not clear, I'm saying I think all of us here need money to function, the more we have the more we can affect lives (to a certain extent).

    I feel a person with a lot of money can have it taken away as it is held in banks, are numbers on private networks, even cash stashed by said individual can be seized or at least made difficult to spend. So yes, it can be seen as an illusion, but I need it to keep the lights on, I'd like more to help people I care about.

    Ron Artest sold his championship ring for 600 000+ dollars to benefit others, not sure what for or if it's true, but I'd like to be able to do stuff like that.

    So I feel you James, and I was on my way to being rich but I got in my way and spent like crazy and cared not about my own future. So with all I wrote above I know I can be very wrong and I invite proper correction.

    this thread is not about money......

    since we have so many posters who present an air of superiority and have so much inside information why aren't we doing better?

    I would tell you, but my sources prefer for me not to.
