Why the Black Community Needs to Value Financial Independence Eric Jordan December 20, 2016 Glenn Walker is a certified public accountant in Morgantown West Virginia, and he believes that black African American communities will never have any leverage in this country into they come together and build economic wealth and power as a cultural community in this country. Walker says the young black African american adults value the wrong things such as a affordable car compared to a expensive car, or rent to own instead of home ownership. He also goes over a couple ways that African Americans can empower themselves, and uses a recent article from Kareem Abdul Jabar on how we have understood the leverage we have created with voting, to the point where they tried to suppress our vote. Glenn goes into how easy it should be to solve our own cultural community problems with 40 million -60 million African Americans in this country, Walker say’s “If each African american currently residing in this country just gave $1 we could take care of the black college financial issues, but we are too divided and segregated to take advantage of that”. Glenn Walker speaks of a goal that needs to be created by black people, not as individuals, but as a community to create economic power. The problem is black communities operate separately, they don’t understand money, they don’t understand the concept, and they don’t understand how to implement it.
