Grand Marquise commands the room as he demonstrates  the benefits what it means too have financial literacy as a black man in America. Growing up in Detroit being faced with the circumstances every youth is faced with in America; he started out as a musician to help avoid the streets. He evolved from being a musician to evolving his career into a man selling Primerica, bringing in money, searching for a life free of stress in America.  His dream is to see forward thinking individuals embracing multi-cultural elements too see society advance.

He points out during his financial analysis that forty-percent of Americans spend money on debt. Not having a clear emphasis on what steps to take next to bring their game plan to the next level. Pointing out that investing with Primerica will be the retrograde to freedom. By having a Security license you are unlocking mind of investment. You as a person will have knowledge of you’re IRI rate, helping attain you’re retirement goal. “It is about foundation”, he says, the motto we stick too around here is, “become a owner not a loaner”. Once he started doing the financial services offered at Primerica he turned doubters to believer. “People are afraid to try patience until they get better.”

The information here is black and white, no round-about, he shows all the affiliations Primerica has and why we should join. The company ask the employees , “What were going to do for our families”. Why work a job when you can become apart of the deadly force that is Primerica and have an earning potential up to 800 thousand a year or earning at-least fifteen dollars a hour. As he continues to explore entrepreneurship, he plays with the thoughts of releasing a Christian rap album, returning back to music. Only to spread a message with uplifting vibes.

 

A Tribute Too The Almighty Dollar

I chose my hoe over marriage; this house for you’re dollar I would put into a homeless mans pocket, just to watch him trick it on vices. As I pull into corporate Americas drive-way, the man, “fuck your family and the sacrifices you made to get to this point. I want to see the dollars shake like my favorite hooker at hooters.  So I shall throw away employee training, give you reasons why you should stay by my side to continue working. You wake in the morning, only for your body to crave dead caucuses to feast upon,you pay with your money. Primal instinct is a beautiful thing when you survive in America. You instantly become like the super-villain Carnage. Laying hay-may only to feed the instincts you crave to fulfill within your minds prophecy.

The dollar has gave me reason to continue on showing support to my child success for a brighter tomorrow. I no longer have to stress about my kid fucking up, not showing to class, or them having a starving gut. As I feed my cattle, they only continue to show mental defect, making me have to kick them out the house, to find a way too survive on their own. The almighty dollar has made me become ruthless in the way I think. My family has became a unified unit because of this dollar.

I myself continue to wake and pray for this money I make. It keeps me wealthy, in fact, my health is just as important as my wealth-so why stress mental health ? This competiton factor has lead me to believe in climbing the ladder. I now make at-least sixteen dollars a hour, while still fishing in the great oceanic express I call America. Dollars help fund, big business, big prison and even help boom the steel industry. I voted for Donald Trump because he encompasses everything what it means to have a dollar. BIG BUSINESS 

Nelson Mandela And Being In America- A poisoned heart

Nelson Mandela fight against the Apartheid system gained notoriety during his twenty-seven years of imprisonment. During those years, he continued to spread on his teaching, motivating activist- too end the fight on segregation. Although he was going through harsh prison conditions, he still had to go through racism in the prison. Having being fed less better than the other nationalities he was with during his time on Robben Island. Some say these formative years are the ones that helped influenced him too become an even better man than he was before.

I myself, find much inspiration in Nelson Mandela story. Having to go through harsh conditions, he still manage too have great influence in the prison he was stationed at. We as Americans complain about going through the daily routines of life. Feeling imprisoned within our own insanity, we need to embrace the feet’s that Mandela has chosen to climb. Not through word, but throughout our actions. This is a man that has chosen to throw away his rights at the cost of freeing a nation- carrying a great love for his people. A quote that resonates with me that Mandela has spoken, “Resentment is like drinking poison, than hoping it will kill you’re enemies“.

If we continue too drink the poison we see daily in human interaction in our western society, we will be the poison that was imbedded in the mindset of society. I think that is the point behind Nelson Mandela legacy. He spoke, breathed and teach for a better tomorrow that consisted of freedom from the poisons our human mind can harbor. Yes, we have to work to continue on a better tomorrow. Yes, we have to deal with a broken crisis that may be sitting in our family homes. But it is the passion inside of you, that will cause great change for a better tomorrow, rejecting all poison to embrace the power of love.

Technology and Human experience

We have self-driving cars, virtual realities and even being able to upload you’re consciousness to a robot.  I believe that we are getting to a point in life- in which human interaction will become non-existent within five years. Twenty years we are going to be living life like a scene out of Futurama.

People are becoming more and more with drawn from life. The average person does not even go outside, they rather be entertained in doors. I myself, have found great satisfaction in going outside. I met a lot of great faces, the faces that are helping mold Detroit to become an even better place than it was yesterday.

Although n***a’s around the world have more information at their finger tips at a shit fast pace, jobs are now being taken over by robots. Cashiers have been replaced with self check out, along with phone operators. Music is devaluing even more, with streaming becoming more popular, making physical purchases become obsolete. What is an humans existence even worth now ? We work to feed the robots and the rich that can afford this over priced technological shit fest.

Technology has had some positive gain advancing fields such as medicine and science.  We have pace makers too help maintain a person heart. We also had explored the depths of our cosmos thanks to the advancement of science- discovering many vast planets. But when are we going to stop letting it interfer with our day to day interaction with people?
