The system is designed to keep the majority of people working so that a small minority can really get to enjoy the good life and can be able to control everything. So basically what I’m saying is that the system — and the rulers of this country – was not built with my betterment in mind, so why should I follow those rules? It wouldn’t make sense. You only have 3 choices when you’re playing a game where the rules were designed AGAINST you – break them, play a new game, or create new rules.
We as young Black men seeking success need to first recognize that the game is rigged and the deck is stacked against us, and then react accordingly. The fact of the matter is you’re probably not going to become wealthy as somebody’s employee – particularly if you have a felony or even a misdemeanor on your record. And if you’re working minimum wage or a low wage job or a dead end job and you don’t have kids to support or anyone to support outside of yourself then QUIT THAT SHIT NOW!!!! Immediately. If you one of them Good Samaritan ass motherfuckers then put in that two-week notice (like McDonald’s REALLY needs one). But if you’re going to struggle anyway you might as well struggle for a reward. I hope you see the light.
If you’re going to work your ass off every day for little appreciation you might as well do it to build your own company. I’d rather struggle for the potential reward of being my own boss, creating generational wealth, and living the lavish life as opposed to struggling for a guaranteed purse of $9/hour and constant disrespect from management plus the added shame that comes from being the low man at a job.
