Economists continually state that " small businesses drive 70% of the U.S. economy. " Is this statement of truth a benefit to the Sons and Daughters of Africa ? Or conversely, could that statistic help explain why many of us barely have two dimes to rub together, and mostly cobwebs in our banking accounts ? Regardless of who our FRIENDS are, what level of edumacation we've received, or the geographic location in which we live, we OWN almost none of these businesses. I never got my " 40 acres and a mule ", as is the case with most of us. Instead, we mostly settle for being the damn mule ! Instead, we put all of our faith in being GIVEN things, rather than creating anything. We put all of our faith in the Eddie Longstrokes ( I mean Eddie Long, excuse the error ), T.D. Jakes, lotto tickets, and even the " Ms. Cleo " vampires that screw us like cheap tricks. I GOT my first job at........no the hell you didn't. You were GIVEN your first job at ( fill in the blank ). This show will be a reminder of how we could be doing better, much better.
