Racism in MLM and Our Approach

I watched this video with Larry Wilmore exposing Fox News for more obvious racism - and one of the methods they use is once again on full display. I'll let you watch the video first; but then I'm going to talk about Racism in MLM.

Fox news often carts out a black face, to say things that racist white people want to say; but know they cannot get away with saying.

It's sad, but the black community in America has been pushed so far down, that offering a few dollars is enough to make several black people TURN on their own people.

For the LOVE of MONEY is the root of all evil ..........

When people love MONEY more than doing right; more than speaking truth; more than Standing Up for Justice - That is Pure Evil.

When I look around at the MLM Industry I'm in; I notice almost NO 'black leaders' speak out on these issues; They do not want to upset the white people who are in business with them; They do not want to make non-blacks mad and possibly lose some money.

Make sure you're following real leaders - especially if you're Black and in MLM.

I've said it several times; will say it again; LOTS of non-black people do NOT want to work with black MLM's - if a MLM has too many blacks in it, and if there are too many at the top; Notice how there seems to be NO diversity --

Because Racism is so horrible that it Seeps into everything we do as a society; EVEN and Especially MLM.

In a great book, that YOU need to read - by Dr. Charles King called "the New Professionals" - Race is brought up; and it is pointed out, that companies who's leadership is diverse will always do better than companies that are Not.

Diverse companies have the most appeal to the broadest range of people.

This is why several Black Leaders get approached by mostly White companies; and are offered Money to bring 'some color' to those companies. I've been offered money before; I know several others who've been offered money; and even those who Took money - but there is always a PRICE you pay when you take someone else's money.

They own you.

I didn't get into MLM to be a slave.

--- Freedom feels so much better.

But sometimes we must FIGHT for the freedom we want -

A couple of points I make frequently.

Corporate America has invaded MLM - and rather than lead the industry, most Leaders in our industry are Slaves.

They've been muzzled. They cannot talk about issues that matter because they could get terminated - and lose their income.

They have not set themselves up to sustain the ups and downs of MLM - or the whims of MLM Company owners.

THEY should be listening to TopNetworkersGroup and approaching MLM our way; Our way is better.

No MLM Company can tell us to pull down The Black Folder

No MLM Company can tell us not to talk about real issues on our Social networks; On this team you're encouraged to do so.

No MLM Company can tell us NOT to engage in Multiple Streams of Income - besides; we do it by the book.

We are Free - and yet we are within a system that is still controlled by people who have more money, more power and more influence than we have at this point in time. Many of the people who are 'against us' know the power of Our approach. They know how many people we will FREE - so they talk against it; just like Fox News talks against anything that may IMPROVE This world for more than just a 'few' - While it's possible for our money, power and influence to grow - for now we all must do, what we must do - until that day arrives - when we Can bring more people to our side of the fence.

And Until that time .... I will continue to speak out for justice.

Because I am free.

Civil Rights in America and Economics

If you have noticed, I am mostly using this GDI Blog to discuss what's happening on the Civil Rights in America and Economics Conversation. That is one of the things I feel is awesome about not being bound to a 'mlm company' - because I am a business man who decided to bring his 'talents' to this industry to help others out. In doing so, I could not help but notice the growing corporate american 'idea' of owernship emerging in the MLM industry.

The MLM Companies think they own the Independent Business owners - but do they?

The MLM companies own the products and services they create; but not the people who choose to market those products and services - Affiliate programs for the most part, have always had this part right. Rarely do I see them terminate anyone for 'marketing/promoting' another affiliate program. For me, I decided to see how using both MLM Companies and Affiliate programs could benefit Black people.  Civil Rights in America never got to the part of dealing with Economics.

That is however, what Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. was focusing on after getting Voting Rights laws changed - was the Economic Empowerment of Black people in America.

Now, I'm saying 'we' should be seeking that empowerment while using the MLM industry/business model as a 'vehicle' - because a Dream without a plan is Just a wish.

A Platform created to have this conversation - is part of our One MLM System (To Rule Them All) called, The Black Folder.

Inside The Black Folder are several videos which highlight what has happened to black people in America; combined with videos on what black people MUST do to turn these things around. Group Economics is the answer and yet, there is so much that goes along with it. We have to think more positively about things. We have to change many of the ideas that are going int our heads so that we can change the inner conversations that are happening. We have to learn from the mistakes of the past, so not to repeat those mistakes going into the future.

There is an awesome documentary from PBS called Eyes on the Prize, which we feature there...

Here are 3 powerful Hours from the 14 Hour Long Documentary:

In this documentary so much about our story is covered.

Just as a warning; The following 3 Videos are constantly being pulled off YouTube - the information is too powerful. Please report the video "if" any are not playing when you get there. These 3 parts cover so much ground. One of my favorites is The Promised land. This focuses on Dr. King's movement better known as the Poor People's Campaign. When I first put the black folder together, I found audio of Dr. King discussing his goals with this movement. You'll benefit greatly from hearing his words on this matter.

The Civil Rights in America movement is not done - not without the Economic empowerment and upliftment of black people in America.

You can work with us, to make the completion of this leg of the race a reality.
