How culture of one's ethnic background defines and positions one's place in society, especailly westernized modernized society. The Chinese have progressed the Indians have progressed, the latinos are somewhat progressing, but the blacks my ppl, are somewhat far behind, what is the cause of this, is it, according to what people says we are too lazy? is it the negative culture we have grown and propogate the violent Hip hop culture? is it that we don't trust and help our own biz to support them, and let them grow and prosper, is it the instutionalized racism that still lingers around someone give us some hope, when you look at the list of forbes, world's richest list you fail to see any blacks on that list, but instead you will see alot of eastindians, chinese, etc, which shows that we are lagging far behind in wealth accumulation. that's it. comments..

Money isn't everything.

Surely its better to have a rich fullfilling culture that you feel comfortable with and which brings you happiness and fulfillment, giving you your own identity, making you unique - than being on the top 10 rich list. Money can buy a lot of things, but happiness isn't one of them.
