“When things in life go wrong, it’s common to blame God automatically. And when we want a way out of bad situations, we pray that God completely take over and make things better, as if He’s a genie in a bottle. When we want a blessing in our finances, we’re taught that giving tithes to the church will give us ten times more in return.

And for the descendants of slaves, the institution of slavery raped it from our ancestors, and increased the resulting net worth for their children and grandchildren. But on the flip side of that, that unfair transfer of wealth left us with next to no net worth generation after generation, making it much harder to pass on a financial legacy. This means we have a greater chance of being employees (wage slaves) than bosses and businesspeople.
