@harry brown, Oprah is trying to maximize revenue.  If putting on football players like Kaepernick and other advances her goal of making money she'll do it. You can't become a billionaire trying to do what is "right" -- especially if it is for Black people.

I'm beginning to think that the amassing of extreme wealth has less to do with doing what is morally right or wrong and more to do with capitalizing off of collective effort.

The Whites of America have managed to accumulate large amounts of wealth by coming up with ideas and working together to put those ideas in motion.
SOME of those ideas were morally good like inventing new technology, and OTHERS of those ideas were morally bad like enslaving and murdering people.
But in most cases, the common denominator was collective effort.

AfroAmericans who are serious about becoming wealthy are going to have to learn to find common ground among eachother and work togther towards their goals.

Sure collective effort is important, but I think greed is the prime motivator for the European colonialist and capitalist.  The development of weapons including guns and atomic bombs and the willingness to use them is a big deal. The willing to enslave another human, in perpetuity, then create some "science" and use religion to justify it is some serious shit. WHo does this?!

 

The indigenous people across the America worked together before they were exterminated.  The African kidnapped from Africa too lived in communities that worked together.  These groups just did not work collective for evil.

 

Look our smartest people are working for Facebook for Christ's sake.  In previous generation these geniuses were working for the manhattan project. The upper class is all about getting as rich as possible at the expense of all of us.  

 

If you were worth a few hundred billion of dollars could you live with yourself having the people who work for you making $9 an hour?  You think Bezos is losing a second of sleep?

Let me answer your question honestly......

Yes I could, as long as that was what they agreed to work for BUT- I wouldn't, because I would pay them more.

I personally wouldn't mind taking a SLIGHT decrease in my profits to makes sure my workers are receiving a decent living wage.

However if paying them MORE than $9 an hour means I won't make a profit at all....they'll only get $9 for the time being.

The goal of most business owners isn't to be nice, or even to be fair, it's to get rich and accumulate wealth.
When we understand this, we are no longer suprised or disappointed in why they do what they do.

I'll take that as a "yes." You'd make a fine capitalist.

 

Slave owners convinced themselves too that they were providing better opportunities for their darkies too.

I'm not sure if you got the clearest understanding of what I just said, but actually it's even colder than what you just described.

From a business owners perspective whether or not your employees or subjects are receiving "better opportunities" is irrelevant.
The only thing relevant is whether or not your'e getting rich or generating a profit.

Now most owners will CLAIM to be concerned or PRETNED that they care about their workers, but I don't believe most do.

So perhaps the slave owners tried to convince the SLAVES or those who witnessed the brutality of slavery from the outside that what they were doing were for the benefit of the slaves....but THEY THEMSELVES couldn't give a damn about their slaves or their benefit.
The only thing that mattered was the money and work they could get out of them.



As far as me......

I'm not fond of using other people's lables to describe myself or putting my ideaology in a box.

In today's society there word "Capitalist" could mean a million different things.
Everyone has their own definition for it.

The same thing could be said for "Socialist".

I believe in AfroAmerican controlled and influenced Free Enterprise were Black people are free to own and operate their businesses however they like as long as they aren't posing a danger to the community.
