Support black businesses. It was not long ago we gained freedom from slavery and racial segregation.

Next on our list should be financial freedom. Chinese, Indians and others are building wealth by supporting each other. We need to support our own.

Introspection. A reality that racism is still a big threat to our society. When you think about it, record numbers of Americans voted for Trump when it was clear this moron embraced the support of white supremacists. If the American institutions buckle under the onslaught of this punk and his enablers the freedom our people shed their blood for can be reversed. We cannot allow that to happen.

I once gave a speech based on a song, using it as my intro.

I was shocked a few days after I got calls that Irie FM aired excerpts of it. I was so into it I had no idea they were there.

So I am not just an uneducated deplorable, I do have some use.



lol

I was asked to address staff at an end of year awards function for lecturers and admin staff at an organization. My focus was on building wealth with the theme "Embracing the Future by Transforming Your Life Today".

Sounds great man. No doubt you did a fantastic job.

No, I have the final module which is a research project that of course carries the most credits. I had deferred to February 2022.

$13.68 for three fingers of bananas and a sprinkling of ackee and saltfish at Golden Krust, how do you support black business on that count?

Dude! restaurants are expensive, at least you were not expected to leave a tip. Cod is $11/lb,ackee $5.00/12ounce can and rent $5000-6000/month.

Think outside the box, people would rather buy from other restaurants - a Chinese "Eat all you can eat" is $16.50 and that's a dine-in venue!

The last time I check Golden Krust is a plastic takeout, outfit!

That said, my preference is for a Meditteranean meal!
