Systemic Racism, Solutions and "The True American": A Representative Breakdown and Letter by Founder and CEO of First Ladies of Poverty Foundation, Shatoyia Jones

As a proud African American and American, it hurts to come to the realization that being patriotic for some is simply a flag. It is not fighting or rallying against our government and putting your full faith and trust that it will work for you. It hurts that the most impactful moments in American history are sweeped under a rug to maintain a false sense of cultural superiority and increase economic power and privilege for a small number of people, and I grieve because the people who support the full reliance on our government to do what is right by us (the people) don't understand that the reason for the American democracy is to work for the people. Unfortunately, historically, it has only worked for certain people, and it has never been my people--the people who LITERALLY built and continue to build this country's wealth with our culture, innovation and hard work that has been exploited and appropriated since being brought to this land.

In a world of filters, fake body parts and sex craze, we all just want a sense of belonging and a connection that transcends the physical. Here is an exercise we can all do to maintain our sense of humanity, as well as a resource to continue to connect with others seeking a higher quality of life, not just financial success.

There are many different attitudes and beliefs surrounding money. It can make it difficult to define howyouactually feel.Beliefs are ingrained in us from a young age, whether that’s consciously or unconsciously, and they shape our views and attitudes. What you believe may not actually be your own belief. Often it’s what you’ve accepted because the belief has been passed down from generation to generation.
No one talks about it so the cycle is never broken.
How lame is that?
Let’s take a look at some popular beliefs about money, and some different perspectives that embrace the positive aspects of money.
