Sometimes, I think to myself, What if she was on some real Black liberation tone by demonstrating the how-to’s of navigating business strategy and wealth-building [like a Nipsey or Garvey], rather than “believe in God and he will watch over you” type of rhetoric, would her voice be as prominent?
For instance, in 2017 I saw Magic Johnson speak at a Forum. He was talking a bunch of motivational jargon, without one iota of actionable steps to walk out of the conference room, and apply practically in your life, to then move forward with wealth creation. All I could think to myself was, “damn, imagine if he suddenly switched up his tone…and was on some real life Black empowerment vibe” and not that “God will deliver your blessing nonsense” that leaves your mind nice and soothed, but…still broke without a plan.
