    There is equal opportunity for all who are smart enough and capable. The United States Military is a prime example. Using race as a discriminating factor to wealth is well................racist."

    EXCELLENT point.

    About President Obama's invitation of the CEO's of big banks to the dinner at the White House I have to say that you still don't know Obama's Strategy...Keep your friends close, and your enemies closer...I believe you need a psychologist in your crew...I would gladly take the job...(Sorry I didn't know where to write about this)

    The Wealth Gap story seemed to be a very interesting topic. In fact, I think about building wealth on a daily basis and how the process works. I am an agent with New York Life and my father has been successful with the company for 22 years. My father says "I invest a lot of money as a financial advisor, but the most important thing I do is life insurance." Whites uses the product properly as a WEALTH DISTRIBUTOR and teaches its importance early, while us blacks tend to see the product as BURIAL ASSISTANCE. Rarely do we learn about credit, loans/interest rates or life insurance at an early age. I take pride in teach our people early. Its either you DONT KNOW or you DONT CARE, in most cases its we dont know. Nonetheless, I just graduated from Southern Illinois University a year ago and had no idea about wealth accumulation & distribution.

    Last.... why not understand the benefits of life insurance early... we are all guaranteed to die one day: and we don't know when

    Why the HECK is the Media so obsessed with "RACE" as the only casual for being wealthy or being poor in America?

    The real Answer is called get a "JOB" and an "EDUCATION" and stop living off the system.
