You're still dancing around the question. OK, I'll ask, What EXACTLY is excessive? Give us your EXACT figure or example. Excessive is just a relative word, a "buzz" word to use whenever you can't be specific. Is a 32-ounce soft drink too excessive and stinking? What if one is really thirsty? You must be stinking rich because you live in America and even go to college. You must be stinking rich because you can afford to have a good diet and plenty to eat, while many in the world are starving. You must give your food to them, right?
Please, please, give us the specific dividing point between being a good person and being stinking filthy rich. Please don't give the vague, subjective concepts you hear from friends, but the specific, intelligent figures that really define your wisdom. Please, again, no subjective comments, but hard and fast answers to the question.
Fine, whatever. I guess you "win". I know what I want in terms of financial gain, and that's all that matters.

What a joke these so called "leaders" are. Black Americans become more poor, more uneducated, and more dependent on the government every year.
The leaders need to stop selling out the black community and start addressing the REAL problems, such as; crime, rampant child abuse/neglect, the teen pregnancy epidemic and the complete-breakdown of the black family unit.
Too many summits and meetings that get nothing done. Most black ppl. don't want to get their hands dirty when it comes to uplifting the masses.

You're correct, there is no answer because it's a strictly subjective premise. You all want to bash success, but yet be successful in some way yourselves. The people who are more successful than you, then you call them "stinking" and "filthy". Well you are "stinking" and "filthy" to someone who is lower in success than you are.

Isn't it time we considered the fact that there will always be those who are less successful and ther will always be those who are more successful, and set our own sights on our own path to success instead of criminalizing those who are more successful?

I will applaud those who have made a large financial success and will tell others to work toward the same end. All the occupiers will say, Dirty ole rich people! But they will turn around and spend their last dollar on some ridiculous rapper's cd or Hollywood dirty movie. The (American) world is upside down!

Actually, it's very hard to interpret that from anyone who responds with, "my user name is based on ..."

We hope you are not the average college student.

Claiming to be a college student would explain any dress and hygiene issues, you should know that as well!
