Are We Free Yet ?

On this 4th of July lets reflect on what independence really looks like. Forget about money. Forget about toys. Forget about all the trappings we look to as markings for success. These are the very things that are enslaving us.

Too many are gathering toys with debt and assuming it adds to our worth. I'm here to tell you it doesn't add to your worth or your wealth. With the median income in the U. S being around $57,000 before taxes what does a 60,000 dollar car get you ?  And for Latinos and Blacks with median incomes of around  $34,000 and $30,000 respectively, it's even worse.

Think about that, 50% of Black and Latino households bring in less than $40,000 a year. How many more are under $57,000 a year?  That shows the typical Latino / Black household is making less than the typical American. In other words our average is below average.

So today in between the barbecue and good times think about what idependence really means. And fight like hell to manifest in in you life.

Stay Up and Stay Blessed,
