I figure Rodney King walked away with two million cash after his 3.8 million dollar settlement.

Iím thinking 1.8 mil went to the lawyers, taxes, etc. That left two million dollars which returns $200,000 a year in interest (10%) in any bank. Thatís $4000 a week -- cash. All this yet by the time he died he didn't have a nickel left to get buried ...

2 mil isn't anything. Especially in California. But we all know how this goes.

He bought a house and a car. That was probably half a mil. Then he had to make sure his mom, aunts, uncles, and other "family" was taken care of. Then he met this woman that probably drained the rest.

How much crack can a man smoke?

Had he put his net of $2 million in the bank, at 10% that would have returned $200,000 a year for life.

$200,000 a year is $4000 a week -- net!

Figure $1000 a week for recurring expenses -- rent, food, bills, etc., and that still leaves him with $500 a day to smoke up (assuming he doesn't smoke on Sunday ... although I don't know why he wouldn't.)

Can you crackheads out there help us here? Is $500 a day enough to stay high?

All the "black-owned" banks are paying between 10 - 15% right now, Carol.

You should take the money you got from selling your late husband's gold fillings and invest it in a black-owned bank or credit union.

Does it matter? IF you are black you need to be supporting your banks and credit unions.
The jews support their banks.
The italian support their banks.
Why not us?

Whoever said a few mil in Cali doesn't go far is right....

Besides,,,If he's dead, does it really matter???

If he had 100 billion dollars, he couldn't have taken it into eternity with him.

God bless his soul

You've all seen that photo of Jesse Jackson, Jr's white girlfriend, right?

Not?

Check it out:
http://www.blackdigest.com/

Some are saying "like father, like son" but this isn't correct at all. Jesse senior didn't mess around with white girls.

Finally, somewhere I read Rodney's live-in girlfriend was pregnant -- pregnant and broke now, I suppose.
