Financial Juneteenth: 10 Ways to Fire Your Boss Right Now
Leaving the racism of the corporate plantation and finding your way to economic freedom and empowerment.
The vast majority of black people in America have been victims of workplace discrimination, and there is a massive wealth gap that has plagued us for centuries. The problem is that nobody cares. Even worse, there are few remedies for this mistreatment, and no policies to deal with chronic black unemployment.
In this case, you have two choices: Either spend your life begging for a job where you’re likely to be mistreated, or get “lucky” enough to land the job and spend your life in constant fear that it might be taken away. Beyond that, there is the depression and mental illness which can develop from getting up everyday to live paycheck-to-paycheck doing something you don’t enjoy very much.
You deserve better than that. You should be living out your dreams, not the dreams of somebody else.

Some of us get up and go to jobs that we do not enjoy, working for people who don’t like us very much. Then, when those companies feel that we’ve gotten out of line or they don’t need us anymore, we are sent out the door.
There is also a great deal of frustration with regard to how our kids are being educated, and the violence that has taken too many young lives in our community. Mass incarceration has ripped the black family to its core and an entire industry has been built from the prison industrial complex.
