“If the Negro in the ghetto must eternally be fed by the hand that pushes him into the ghetto, he will never become strong enough to get out of the ghetto.”
In this day and age, we often wonder what we are doing with our lives. We are a lost generation, where the majority of the population are just going through the motions, not liking what they do nor liking how they live. We find ourselves endlessly slaving away for other people and getting nowhere in life. Our working lives consume most of our time and energy and it doesn’t allow us to do the things that we really want to do in our lives. And on top of that we get paid very little.
We are like a herd of sheep, totally under control because that is how society taught us to live. They say, we follow. The school system and the media are all about that. We need to understand that a job doesn’t mean shit nowadays. You can lose it all in a blink of an eye and once you lose it, you’re fucked. Never give control over your life to other people. Remember that you control your own destiny and it’s up to you to make it happen. Having a job is like having a gun pointed at your head, you never know when they’re going to pull the trigger.
If you think that having a job is your only option, then you will be fucked, stuck living a measly life. The more broke you get, the more work you will have to do, and that isn’t sustainable for the long run. It might make sense at the time but it really isn’t. You need to build something for yourselves that keeps the money flowing without you having to work. This should be your number one priority if you are to escape out of poverty.
If you continuously keep on working for someone, there will come a time when your body will be too old to work anymore. And if you are at that stage and don’t have a lot of savings, you will be fucked. If you haven’t thought about your future, it’s time to think about it now. It’s never too late to plan.
For the people who live in the ghetto, there aren’t too many opportunities available for us. It’s either living a life of crime or slaving away at a dead end job because that’s the only thing that’s out there. So how do you expect to make it out of the ghetto? All I can say to that is that sometimes in life, we need to do what we need to do in order to survive, even if we’re not too proud of it.
At times we all need a financial boost, something that makes us money that enables us to do the things that we want to do. We must take advantage of the opportunities which are around us. If it is in drug trafficking, let it be drug trafficking. If it is pimping, let it be pimping. Take advantage of what’s around you and use that to propel you further. Once you stack your money, step out.
It is a gamble, but it all depends on how you do it. If you operate the smart way, you will never get caught. If you do it right, you will get a lot of money. But the key thing is when you plan on exiting the game. When do you know how much is enough? When do you know it’s enough? It’s kind of like gambling. It’s all up to you when you decide to fold your cards. You can’t get good cards all of the time so might as well exit when you are at the top of your game.
