One of my friends came to visit me this weekend and we got on the topic of people staying in bad conditions and not wanting more for themselves. We have some in contact with a lot if that mentality lately. For example, one who has not completed high school, has a job, can move up in the job, but refuses so they will not lose their welfare benefits. Or one who thinks that if you have a good profession and you are of African American culture, you act as if you are of the Caucasian descent. Someone told me that but in another format. What does that mean? "No one knows what it means!' They throw stones at you because you succeed and keep #winning.
Some of you may not experience these occurrences or may have never heard of them but I am here to tell you that it happens a lot. This is one of the reason I am so dying to move (there are many more i.e., we don't have a Neimans, Nordstroms, H&M, Cheesecake Factory, Pappadeuax. etc) I want to surround my self with prestige, educated humans, and inspiration. Is that wrong? Why go to school to further our education? Why move away from the ghetto we grew up in? Why want more out of life? I tell you why- because we can!! It is the way it should be. Evolution justifies it.... we are to keep persevering to get better and better. So put your all in to everything that you want to do and there is no reason you should have to dumb it down or feel bad for your success.
What do you think?
