No kidding. Blacks are poor everywhere. Go to any country in the world and you will find them living in 3rd world conditions and in slums. Europeans are way richer than Africans.

Germany Compared to Zimbabwe....

Is like a 5 starr Hotell compared to a Porta-Potty in a Landfill.

...But the porta-potty has some fake shiny bling bling on it.

Rich, means that they attained an item, sold and merchandised it into a profit. What do white people have a talent at. Taking what was already established, put a price tag on it, while the actually owner is told that he is 5 times least likely to be as rich as a white.

Black folks are notorious for being impulsive spenders so of course they're always going to be broke.

On a personal level, blacks do just as well as I do. I see great hope because of their church leaders, such as Dr. Tony Evans. Neatly all blacks I've worked with exhibit great work ethics and organizational tendencies. They are reliable, motivated, and every bit my equal. Our devils lie within us all. We all need to encourage each other to be the best we can be; however, we must demand only of ourselves to make the difference we desire.

Whites are paid more than blacks also. For example,I work for a very large company and there are 3 black people that have the same job title as me, yet I get paid considerably more than they do and two of the three have more senority than me. It's good to be White. LOL !!!!!
