Racially Insensitive Business Parnters

I wouldn't want business partners who are racially insensitive.

I try to deal with where I'm at locally before getting too caught up in the world - but those who refuse to pay attention to the problems at home are usually the first ones to bring up other problems in other areas of the world. We cannot fix the outer until we fix the inner though. This is true when it comes to personal development, or self improvement. This is true when it comes to the world. In order to really solve the problems of man kind around the world, this nation has to get itself together. With so much happening on the political fronts - and in our very streets at the hands of the Police, we are seeing more and more Racially Insensitive comments flying out of the mouths of people all over social media.

This is why we created The Black Folder.

It's needed. The education that is in that folder is going to do nothing but solve problems linked to Racially Insensitive people.  Because racism is 'an education' that most racists get at home. They are raised by people who have 'certain views' about other races. Usually those parents have a 'circle of friends' who all share those views. They all raise their children with these views. They send their kids to the same schools, and those kids begin to grow up sharing that 'social circle' with similar ideas and views, about other races.

This divisive reality dates back centuries, and is part of the problem we Americans refuse to tackle.

It creates racially insensitive people who often speak out of ignorance, about others.  Many are ignorant about their own advantages in this society which was set up to give them those advantages. Because so many of them rarely venture out side of that 'social circle' I spoke of, it creates a 'social bubble' which is full of advantages for those inside that bubble. But, those advantages are seldom extended to those, outside of that bubble.

This is why the 1mlmsystem combines FREE opportunities with Affordable Opportunities; and asks our team members to focus on building the network; not the 'programs' - because that's the only way to overcome the obstacles that so many business men and women of color face.  (A Black Business Network To Distribute Wealth Is Step One)

Network marketing is about relationships, and many black people just do not have relationships with white people.  Many blacks who've done well, or who's parents have done well, and as a result are not living around blacks; and are included in that social bubble I spoke about, are often unable to get full access to all those benefits and advantages. At the same time, to stay in that bubble, many choose not to build any sort of relationships with other blacks, who are not part of that 'exclusive' club.

The only time these black people Do come 'to the hood' - is to sell an opportunity that's going to cost $500, and that's before they've made any money.

These black people are often talking 'just like the white people they hang around' - in a racially insensitive way, about their own people. They say things like, blacks have a poverty mindset. They say that blacks are unwilling to invest, that black people are lazy and want things handed to them. While none of these statements are actually true, what 'is' true is often over looked. That our society works hard to engineer a 'certain mindset'.

So much of the talk on police brutality is met with, 'look at all the black on black violence though!' ...

Even though the two are not related, no one really wants to look into what's causing violence in urban areas. No one wants to really deal with the problem, or even seek solutions to those problems. This often includes people of color who've 'made it'. Why should they bother to help anyone else anyways? They have their 'own problems' .... We've lost our Connection to one another.

We are really pretending that Income Inequality doesn't have Impact on People ....

Racially Insensitive People Overlook Inequality


Education however, can open the doors to racially insensitive people - helping them to realize that some people actually do have a tougher road to travel. The education which is so severely lacking in many of these urban areas, could lead to reducing the crime in these areas. It's not that people in these cities do not want more, it's not that they need hand outs; There is inequality. The same after school programs you'll find in white neighborhoods are non-existent in the black ones.

Those choosing to 'not see color' only add to the problem.

While ignoring what is actually happening and pretending No inequality exists. Pretending that inequality does not have ripple effects throughout society; and choosing the believe the fairy tale, that it's not impacting us all differently, along the lines of race. I call these people racially insensitive. Their commentary, their remarks, and their ideas are all, under educated, or mis-educated.

Here's a great video on Connectedness - which speaks to so many of the 'other things' I'm getting at here. We have to find ways to come back together.

Technology gives us the chance to educate or entertain ourselves. Let's choose wisely -

... that being said, Access to Technology is even pretty unequal right now - but with it, we all have an opportunity to increase our knowledge. If we choose to that is. You can either look at The Black Folder in a racially insensitive way, declare that you have nothing to learn (but everything to teach) - or you can use this as a chance to learn more; and to share more knowledge with others. Do you really know about the efforts made to criminalize the black panther party, who actually were working to help black people Lift themselves up out of poverty. They were restoring pride to black people. They were feeding black people and creating programs to help struggling mothers (WIC). This awesome 'organization' was dismantled by the U.S. Government, and the after effects have been devastating to black people.

If you're color blind, uneducated about this, or simply racially insensitive, you'll talk about the violence in the black community, without any idea of how 'involved' the FBI and CIA have been in that dysfunction.

Meanwhile, the KKK - a known terrorist organization, is allowed to operate in the United States, without interruption. Their hate speech is protected - and respected. Much of their rhetoric has made it's way into the political landscape. You'll see people all over social media saying they want their country 'back'. They want to deport anyone who isn't white. They want to make America 'Great Again' ... and anyone black who dares call this kind of talk racist, is quickly attacked, accused, and labeled As the real racist one.

All of this stems from being racially insensitive.

It stems from being racially unaware - from being oblivious - Willingly ignorant.

And, I don't want business partners like that. Would you? (especially if you were in My shoes??)

I don't want to make 'business moves' with people who are socially ignorant.

I don't really want to hold meetings, or take phone calls, or exchange emails, with anyone who's not 'aware' of the bigger picture.

None of us join network marketing, just to stay in a network marketing company for life. Most of us have bigger goals. We want to take our money from one thing, and invest it into something else, something bigger, something "We own".  Yet how do we get there when everyone's on a different page? (The answer is, we do not...) 

I want to make money with people who'll want to give back to the hurting communities of this nation.

I'd like to make money with people who want to offer real ways for people to make money, while getting a better 'education' than they'll find in 'a MLM company'. Most of these companies are really good, but the 'cost' factor does work as a way to keep certain people out. Rather than extending the invitation to help people really get better, who want to get better. Rather than giving people a real way to afford a $500 opportunity, people are looking over and past those who 'really' are not ready for that 'level of investment'.  If you're thinking about working with me, or my team, please know that this is what we are about.

We want to make things better, and you're invited to be part of that movement.
