  1. Well number people will stay poor if they focus on buy new cars even if they are inexpensive. What the middle class does is buy a used car. That way they don't have to pay those finance charges. The second thing is to purchase vehicles for the purpose of increasing one's income. The biggest challenge isn't high insurance it's not focusing on how to manage money and climb the financial ladder. Right now I am driving ride shares and taxi. I would have never thought these thing would have brought in as much income has they have. But reading Black Fortunes I see that Blacks have moved from poverty to the middle class was in the service industries. I only use the term middle class for convenience. I don't believe America has a class or caste system. I think those are mental hold overs from Europe and Asia.
  2. Creating my capture page and building an email list was just on my mind earlier today. Thank you for you questions they are really helpful.
  3. Before I start to answer your wonderful question, I would ask if you have heard of the Bronze Shields? They are an Black Police organization. To start with my father was Marxist Leninist Communist who met both Kruchev and Mao. The books I was exposed to were the Communist Manifesto, Das Kapital, the Selective Works of VI Lenin and The History of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union. When they were protesting for the amnesty of rioters in Newark and Philadelphia my parents brought me with them. Rizzo brought them in for processing they took my footprints because my fingers were to small. I also was exposed to the Little Red Book of Mao. My father emphasized Scientific Marxism and used that philosophy to successful organize in Unions and get some of the first Blacks elected to Political Position in Newark NJ and Nationwide. It was his understanding of Politics which lead to the election of the first Black Councilman Irving Turner and the First Black Mayor Ken Gibson. Baraka had failed because his understanding of politics and organizing were limited compared to my father. I am grateful for that upbringing because I can see the shortcomings of that philosophy and it actually bringing about Happiness. Number 1 it was about the Dictatorship of the Proletariat. I don't want to live in any type of dictatorship. Number 2 It was the rejection of Private Property. You can not be free if you don't have the right to personal and private property. Now both Dr. Ben and Dr. Clarke were opposed to Communism and Capitalism. When I was in college they would be frequent guest speakers at African Echos in East Orange. When I left college and started a limousine business, I had the please of driving them to and from lectures. Dr. Clarke opposed Christian and Islam he called them both murder cults. The most important thing about both men were that they were well read and took their studies seriously. Pan Africanism was the philosophy that I would say best sum up Dr. Clarke. Dr Ben would have be characterized as an Ero Sensei in an Anime. He loved the Black Woman and the power she had to make Black People. My only regret is that I was too arrogant to fully appreciate and take advantage of my time with them and my father. I have more information about my on my Facebook page. I hope that I was able to answer you questions.
  4. I appreciate your answer. By Focusing on making sales I meant investing in Advertising and potentially internet radio or article writing. What other platforms do you recommend?
  5. You are taking for granted how advanced the United States is. In the Laws of Success in 16 Lessons by Napoleon Hill, he postulated that the automobile would the ruin of many Americans because it would put them into undue debt. I have lived in the North East Urban Centers and I have been among the poorest of our pour. Having been on Welfare and Homeless as an adult. Buying a car by Black Americans in my part of the country (NJ, NY, Pa) is a matter of choice no finance. Most can put a full $14,000 aside to purchase a car if they want to. Divide $14,000 by 3. When you break it down you will see that even with bad credit a sufficient down payment can be made to buy a cheap new car. The first new car I bought was a Subaru in 1988 while I was still in college and didn't have good credit.
  6. That's a great question Troy. I believe that Carson represents us missing opportunities to move forward for the last 3 1/2 years. When Dr. Carson first become the Secretary of HUD he talked about a Title II which I never heard about. There have been many government programs which the Black Community has been missing out on because the Big Colleges and Universities and Not For Profits have snatched up the money. I believe Dr. Carson is sincere in his desire to help Black Families. I think that he was done an injustice by the Black Cancel Culture which doesn't recognize Blacks who disagree. I feel that we need to engage Dr. Carson's on Urban Forums so that more people can judge for themselves his commitment to the Black Community. I know he has been more outspoken on the changes that need to be done in NYC housing than I have heard. I hope I was able to answer your question.
  7. I just finished and reviewed Debi Thomas What Really Happened by Carol Denise Mitchell. I am 65% through Black Fortunes by Shomari Wills. I just started Dear Beautiful 31 Days of Affirmations for Women by Stalina Goodwin. I am going to take the next few days to stop watching Anime and read a few more books that I bought a few days ago.
  8. I changed my party affiliation to Republican when Ben Carson announced his run. I believe that the demonization and oversimplification of Black Conservatives is one of the biggest injustices Black Americans commit. George Floyd was a clear cut case of MURDER. The same applies to Amadu. Breonna was the result of keeping bad company. Too many of our youths are falling victim to death by association. I was almost a victim when I was a younger man. I thank God he had other plans for me. On the topic of Candance I do believe she falls into the same trap that many of the leading Public Black Conservatives do which is attempting to minimize wrongs by attacking people who have suffered injury. It's a tactic that backfires more than it succeeds. What is your object? To be a part of America or apart from America. We have many examples of people on all sides of the political spectrum. The side you choose doesn't determine your character or value as a human being. Look at Marcus Garvey who made a deal with the KKK to fund the Black Star Line. It's better to synthesize our individual values with the best points that come from all sides.

  10. You raise some very valid points Troy. When referring to economic studies I was thinking of things like the Osiris Revolution describe in Civilization or Barbarism and also the Economic Plan laid out at the end of Destruction of Black Civilization. There could also be information gained by looking at some of the reports made by early European Colonizes. Of course you have to filter out the cultural bias. I am also reading Black Athena now. So many books, so little time.
  11. Good Day Everyone, As I am going through learning how to promote my book. I am wondering which did I focus on first. Do I focus on building subscribers on Social Media Pages or should on focus on making sales as rapidly as possible? What has your experience been?
  12. I hope people won't be offended, but my experience has been different. I was raised a Marxist Leninist Atheist. When I got to college and I was able to meet and converse with scholars like Dr. Lenard Jeffries, Dr Yosef Alfredo Antonio ben-Jochannan and Dr. John Henrik Clarke. This was where I was introduced to various Pan-African Philosophies. I don't see Donald Trump as the Boogie man people are making him out to be. Just today the first Federal Execution took place. It wasn't a Black Man, it was a White Man. This is important because I believe Trump is a pragmatist above all else. We have a unique opportunity to shape and mold a destiny which is beyond many people's imagination. However, I don't think that bright destiny will be brought by the Democrats or Biden. I believe that under a Biden Administration, the talent 5th of the African American community will be further isolated and the path to do likewise will be blocked. These are just a few of my thoughts. I will close with the notion that Blacks who support Trump believe that the Constitution is a Promissory Note. The Democrats have declared that the Constitution irredeemable. It's a great topic. I enjoyed reading the earlier comments.
  13. Thank you so much. I missed the reference to the E-reader. Now for a little more background about Danielle the Girl From New York. You actually get to meet her parents in the second installment The 6 Magic Cans and The Present: Danielle The Girl From New York. This will actually be released late September or Early November. At the time the tale is told Danielle is 9 years old. Her father who was an Guyanese immigrant and NYC Fire Fighter died in the line of duty when she was 2 years old. Her mother Stella, a native born African American remarried a man named Paul. Stella works as bank manager in an Investment Banking Firm. Paul is an entrepreneur who meet Stella when he was at a venture capital forum in Dubai. The first book "Auntie I Don't Want You To Get Married" was originally written in Guyana in the 90's. However I lost the original story and Illustrations. This time I used an Illustrator from Sri Lanka. For the next book I'm not sure whether I will be using them again or bringing in a different team. The big think is that I will looking to work with other Writers and Illustrators to complete the series and go into the other stages of the project. I do hope that people will find this project worthy enough for review. If you need a review E-copy I will be be glad to supply one. I choose the short, installment form because that is the same style my favorite Black Author Alexander Dumas wrote in.
  14. Democracy and Capitalism are two different topics. I don't think that Democracy is a good thing. 1. Because it requires an educated involved population. 2. Because education systems can be manipulated. While there may be many challenges with Capitalism, I most definitely believe Socialism and Communism would leave us worse off. Looking around the world I see tyranny. In order to progress there needs to be a certain amount of stability and freedom. Looking at books like A Wealth Choice and Black Fortunes, I see that while we have had many challenges in this nation there are still more opportunities that exist today which don't exist elsewhere. I saw someone mentioned our own economic systems. The challenge with that is when you look at books like Civilization or Barbarism one sees that most societies have fallen from outside influences and not from internal rot. There are plenty of books which describe the history of Black Economic Systems, none have really been able survive in a meaningful way today. I don't think it's helpful for us to look at stats that say 50% of US families can not afford to by the cheapest cars. With the subprime auto market most people can buy a car, they have to pay a higher price. In terms of credit scores, that is why financial education is essential. Plus the statistic doesn't take in account the used car market. Isn't the real object to acquire independent transportation?
