The speech we will hear today and which is transcribed below was actually the last that Martin Luther King Jr. delivered in his life. It was given in Memphis, supporting the sanitation workers'...

In this episode, Curtis May interviews me for his podcast, The Practical Wealth Show. Curtis and I connected for the first time a few weeks ago, and after spending almost three hours talking shop we knew two things. 1. We should have hit record as soon as we connected and 2.

This episode has been a long time coming. I made a promise in the introduction to this podcast that I would not talk politics on the show. In reality, doing that and building an honest, open platform with real connections between people is pretty much impossible. So, today's show is all about politics. Specifically, how the idea of being a Democrat or a Republican is not in the best interest of the black community. Rather than being the workhorses and mouthpieces of parties that care nothing...

Some people may find this episode a little controversial, but it is the reality for the black community as I see it. Each instance of a tragic mass shooting in the United States prompts immediate calls for new, more strict gun ownership regulations with the black community faithfully leading that charge. In reality we, above all other communities in the U.S., need to embrace and practice responsible gun ownership for the protection of ourselves, our families, and our communities in an...
